Anonymous Donor Covers Free Pet Adoptions

From Nov. 13-17 all standard adoption fees at Anne Arundel County Animal Control will be paid for by an anonymous donor.

An anonymous donor is giving homeless pets and potential adopters something extra to be thankful for this Thanksgiving.

Starting Nov. 13 and until Nov. 17, all standard adoption fees will be paid for by the benefactor, making pet adoption from Animal Control free for approved adopters.

According to a release from the Anne Arundel County Police Department, it is the goal of the donor and the shelter to increase awareness about the thousands of adoptable animals searching for homes at Anne Arundel County Animal Control each year. The organization would also like to increase the number of animals adopted from the shelter.

All adopters will still need to pass the screening process at Anne Arundel County Animal Control before taking home a new pet.

Anne Arundel Animal Control is located at 411 Maxwell Frye Rd. in Millersville. They are open from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday; 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Wednesday; and 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on Saturday.

For more information call 410-222-8900.
