In honor of Pit Bull Awareness Month, Peoria County Animal Protection Services is offering free pit bull adoptions from October 19 - 24, waiving the regular dog adoption fee of $100.00. Pit bulls will be spayed or neutered and micro-chipped when adopted.
PCAPS Director Bridget Domenighini explains how "this promotion helps both pit bulls and the shelter. Pit bulls are the most common breed we have and by offering fee-waived adoptions, we not only find adoptable dogs a forever home, we also free up space for other adoptable animals. It really is a great opportunity to help the dog, the new pet owner, and the shelter."
Pet owners who already have a pit bull are able to take advantage of PCAPS' free spay and neuter program for pit bulls. Peoria County residents can register for this year-round program at PCAPS, 2600 NE Perry Road in Peoria. There are no income requirements to participate and all pit bull mixes are eligible.
PCAPS shelter viewing hours are Monday - Saturday, noon - 5:00 p.m. Visit www.pawspeoria.com to view pit bulls and all animals waiting for a new home. Call PCAPS at (309) 672-2440 for more information.
