The Winnipeg Humane Society is hoping to find homes for dozens of dogs this holiday season.
The animal shelter at 45 Hurst Way currently has 36 dogs and puppies, with that number expected to rise this week as more puppies get put up for adoption.
“We’ve seen an increased number of dogs coming in this year. As well as a greater jump in dog adoptions,” said Judy Dean, WHS adoptions manager. “This will be our fourth dog promotion this year. These events are always very successful in helping our dogs — many of which have been here for months — find their forever homes.”
The WHS is reducing adoption fees on Thursday, December 11, where all adult dogs (six months and older) will be $50 to adopt. Puppies under six months will be $99.
All adoptable dogs and puppies are spayed/neutered, have a tattoo ID, first vaccination, City of Winnipeg dog license, 30 day Petplan health insurance, and a two-week health check.
Last year, the WHS took in 1,589 dogs. That number has increased to 1,646 dogs and puppies so far in 2014.
