ST. LUCIE COUNTY -- In honor of Memorial Day, the Humane Society of St. Lucie County is offering adoptable pets to the community for 50 percent off the normal adoption fee, beginning Saturday, May 11, through close of business at 5:30 p.m. on Monday, May 27.
The HSSLC's normal adoption fees range from $50 to $100. During this price-reduction event, those fees will drop in range from $25 to $50. This includes a reduced adoption price of just $25 for military veterans.
The adoption fees include a medical exam by a veterinarian; age-appropriate vaccinations, including rabies; spaying or neutering; initial de-worming; a microchip; AIDS and Feline Leukemia testing for cats; age-appropriate heartworm testing and a pre-adoption counseling session if needed.
All of the Humane Society of St. Lucie County's adoptable pets can be viewed on the shelter's website at www.hsslc.org or by visiting the shelter in person at 100 Savannah Road in Fort Pierce.
The HSSLC also has animals available for adoption at PetSmart in St. Lucie West seven days a week and at PetSmart in Port St. Lucie's Town of Tradition every Saturday and Sunday.
