Animal Services Pet of the Week: Meet Chelsea!

Meet Chelsea, a sweet and gentle momma who’s looking for her forever home.

Chelsea first came to the shelter in the beginning of January, along with 9 of her pups. She was quickly moved to a foster home where her and her pups thrived until they were old enough to adopt. Chelsea is now back at Animal Services since all of her pups have been adopted, and is looking for a loving family to finally give her a place to call home.

She’s a VIP dog, meaning she’s got a great temperament, good with other dogs and cats, and would fit well with any kind of family. You can adopt Chelsea for only $15, and her adoption includes her spay procedure, vaccinations, microchip and city license.

Animal Services to Host Low-Cost Clinic to Fight Parvo, Distemper

The Department of Animal Services wants to help combat disease by sponsoring its eighth low cost microchip, rabies and parvo/distemper vaccine, and licensing clinic of the year scheduled for this Saturday, November 19.

The event will be held from 6 a.m. to 10 a.m. at the Animal Services Shelter located at 5001 Fred Wilson Avenue.

For this event only, Animal Services will offer all four services (microchip, rabies vaccine, parvo/distemper vaccine, and license) for only $24. City code requires that all pets be licensed, vaccinated, and microchipped.

The services will be available on a first come, first served basis; the first 150 animals will be served. Exact cash or check only. For the event, dogs should be on a leash and owners need to have their cats contained.

Animal Services Pet of the Week: Meet Dulce

Dulce came to us a little over a month ago. While this darling Pit Bull mix is as sweet as can be, she came in with scratches, cuts and bites all over her.

We’re unsure of her past, but coming to the shelter was probably her only shot at a happy life.

Dulce is docile, sweet and calm, and good with other dogs. And while she’s a large pup, she isn’t afraid to crawl into your lap for a good snuggle.

Come visit us at the shelter to give Dulce the forever home she deserves—she’s waiting for a family in kennel B3 and her adoption fee is only $15!
