Animal Foundation waives adoption fees for all dogs

LAS VEGAS — The Animal Foundation is waiving adoption fees for all dogs beginning Thursday in an effort to help ease overcrowding.

During the special, which runs thru Sept. 7, adopters can take home a shelter dog at no cost, which includes spay or neutering, microchip, up-to-date vaccines and more. Depending where you live, a $10 city fee may apply.

An estimated 1,800 dogs are expected to be taken in by the shelter in the month of September alone.

"Our goal this weekend is to find wonderful homes for each and every healthy, adoptable dog in our facility," said Carly Scholten, director of operations for The Animal Foundation. "If you have been thinking about adding a canine companion to your home, now is the time! Not only will your adoption fee be waived, but you will find a new best friend and save a life."

Donations are encouraged, although not required, the Animal Foundation said.

Only one adoptable dog is allowed per household.
