Animal Shelter Waives Fees To Reduce Overcrowding
‘No Fee’ Adoptions Open To Anyone
http://www.wdsu.com/news/17739846/detail.html#-

NEW ORLEANS — A Southeast Louisiana animal shelter facing severe overcrowding is waiving adoption fees to encourage area residents to consider adopting a new pet. The St. Bernard Parish Animal Shelter said it urgently needs to reduce its dog and cat population. The “no fee” adoption is open to anyone — not just parish residents — and will continue through Monday, Oct. 20.

Debra Louque, New Orleans, LA, Rott914 [at] aol.com — This would be a perfect opportunity for individuals or rescue groups to maybe rescue some dogs or cats that could be housed locally or possibly transferred to groups outside the area. They are going to euthanize many of the pets next week if they don’t have a large amount of adoptions.
