Humane Society shoots for record adoption numbers

Amarillo, TX - The Humane Society wants to get their pets out the front door in record numbers this Thursday.

In celebration of Just One Day, the Humane Society is offering discounts on pet adoptions one day only. It is offering $40 adoptions on all dogs more than 40 lbs. All cat adoptions will be only $20.

Rich Havens, the Humane Society's new director, is supportive of Just One Day.

For the first time, Amarillo management and welfare is offering to waive all reclaim costs except microchipping, $15, and rabies voucher, $15, for those animals reclaimed Thursday.

These offers, the Humane Society says, are not a reason for pet owners to wait until Thursday to reclaim their animals, though.

The goal is to clear the shelter so no animals are killed Thursday.

Amarillo Rescues, working as a team, have agreed to send potential adopters to the Amarillo-Panhandle Humane Society on 3501 S. Osage.
