BLADEN COUNTY, NC (WECT) – The Bladen County Animal Shelter is waiving the $25 adoption fee for the month of December to encourage adoption.

Shelter manager Karen Suggs says she hopes this will help animals find a home for the holidays.

Instead of the $25 adoption fee, a new pet owner could use the money for something for their pet.

They want to remind potential pet owners to adopt from a shelter instead of a pet store.

If someone is thinking of adopting a pet for a gift, the shelter managers says to be sure the recipient will want a pet for a gift, because many animals adopted around the holidays, are returned to the shelter in the New Year.
