Raleigh, N.C. — Hoping to capture a slice of the post-Thanksgiving retail pie for homeless pets, the SPCA of Wake County is offering 50 percent off all adoption fees on Friday, Nov. 28.
All cat and kitten adoption fees are normally $45 and will be reduced to $22.50 on Black Friday. All dog and puppy adoption fees are normally $95 and will be only $47.50 for the one-day adoption deal. The reduced adoption fees include: spay/neuter surgery, microchip, vaccines, dewormer, wellness exam, and more (a more than $300 value).
“The holidays are a popular time to adopt a pet. Many families are at home, together and have time off of work, which is ideal for welcoming a new pet into a home," said Darci VanderSlik, SPCA spokeswoman. "In fact, I can't think of a better time to welcome a new pet to the family."
"In the past, adoption groups would shun adopting pets during the holidays, fearing the pet would be returned shortly after the newness wears off. However, recent studies show this is not the case at all," VanderSlik added. "Families will acquire a new pet one way or another. We want them to choose pet adoption and save a life.”
