NIAGARA FALLS, N.Y. (WIVB) - The SPCA of Niagara has been a pretty full place since the weather started to cool down, especially with dogs who are looking for a good home.
Adoption Counselor, Lauren Zaninovich says, "At any given time our facility can hold up to 74 dogs. Our goal is obviously to open up some space, but also for the holidays; we want to make sure every animal is going to a great home."
Between Thanksgiving and Christmas, the SPCA of Niagara has waived their adoption fees for dogs. They also are throwing in plenty of more incentives to encourage adoptions.
"All of our animals leave here spayed or neutered, micro chipped, and they leave with age appropriate vaccinations as well as a first free vet exam. So, we are setting you up for complete success for this new family member," said Zaninovich.
Not only are you set up, you save what normally would cost you almost $450 dollars.
While the promotion has been successful, there are still several more that still need a good home, One of the furry friends just might be just the gift your family has been looking for. The SPCA does recommend bringing the recipient here first.
"We encourage everyone who has the idea of an animal as a gift for Christmas to come in with that family member so they can really bond one on one with that animal for themselves before they bring it home. The last thing that we want is for the animal to come back because they're not properly bonding to the potential owners," Zaninovich said.
If you're still looking for that last minute gift, the shelter will be open on Christmas Eve starting at 10a.m until 12:30p.m.
