There’s only a few days remaining in the Animal Services adopt-a-thon which ends on Sunday, November 20. Making the choice to adopt a dog or cat from Calgary Animal Services is not only a great option for finding the perfect furry companion, it also helps reduce the number of homeless pets in Calgary by giving a loving animal a fur-ever home.
Many studies show that pet ownership can improve your overall health by easing feelings of loneliness, providing opportunities for socialization and even just encouraging you to get outside and exercise. While there are many benefits for people, making a pet part of your family is a big commitment. Like people, pets have very different personalities, and physical and social needs. If you are considering pet adoption, we recommend spending time researching and finding the pet that best suits your family situation, your lifestyle and your stage in life. By taking time in the beginning, you can find the perfect pet for you.
During the adopt-a-thon, adoption rates are half price:
- $100 for dogs
- $75 for cats
