This Valentine’s Day residents have the opportunity to fall in love with a new furry friend during the Gloucester County Animal Shelter’s (GCAS) My Furry Valentine adoption event taking place on Feb. 14.
Freeholder Director Robert M. Damminger said, “Even our animals are looking for their special someone on Valentine’s Day. We have plenty of great animals looking for their forever homes and we’re hoping this event helps connect some residents with animals that just need a little extra love this Valentine’s Day.”
Freeholder Deputy Director Frank J. DiMarco, who oversees the GCAS said, “This one-day adoption event features reduced-price and waived fees for dogs and cats. We’re hoping that this reduced cost event can help our animals find great homes and help residents who were on the fence about getting a furry companion use this opportunity to adopt.”
On Friday, Feb. 14 from noon to 4 p.m., dogs and cats five years old and younger will have their adoption fees reduced to $35 while dogs and cats six years and older will have their adoption fees waived.
“On a day made to celebrate loved ones and promote love, we encourage residents to extend that love to the animals in our shelter who have plenty of love to give,” added Freeholder Deputy Director DiMarco.
Residents must have their adoption applications approved by Feb. 14 to participate. Applications can be found at http://www.co.gloucester.nj.us/depts/a/shelter/peradoptapp.asp and can be completed online or mailed to the GCAS.
