Harford County Humanitarian Society Shelter at Full Capacity, Reduced Adoption Fee – CBS Baltimore


FALLSTON, Maryland (WJZ) – The Humane Society of Harford County has reached accommodation capacity, so they have lowered adoption fees to make bringing home a four-legged friend more accessible.

Adoption fees have been set at $ 25 for all animals, including dogs, cats, rabbits, and even reptiles and backyard animals. Regularly, adoption fees reach up to $ 250 for dogs and up to $ 125 for cats.

Executive director Jen Swanson said most shelters and rescue organizations that typically take animals away from them are also at full capacity.

“Even if you don’t adopt HSHC, visit other shelters in the area or consult with a local relief organization,” Swanson said. “When you adopt one of our rescue partners, it frees up space for them to accommodate another animal in a shelter like ours. “

Regular adoption procedures still apply, so animals are sterilized, vaccinated and given a general examination before going to their new home.

The refuge, located at 2208 Connolly Road in Fallston, is open by appointment. To start the adoption process, consult the animals available for adoption on their website, then complete an adoption request linked at the top of their page. Adoption counselors will contact you once the request is processed.
