Huntsville Animal Shelter is giving homeless pets a lucky break

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) – With St. Patrick’s Day fast approaching, Huntsville Animal Services (HAS) invites members of the community to give pets homes.

HAS is reducing adoption fees for some dogs as part of the “Dog Gone Lucky” promotion, which runs until March 19. Pooches of all shapes, sizes and ages are available. Dogs can be adopted for as little as $10 or $35, although certain exclusions apply. Puppies and kittens can be adopted for $50.

HAS director Dr Karen Sheppard said an overcrowded shelter can be stressful for animals and urged the public to help.

“We have so many wonderful animals here right now, and it’s so hard to give them the love and attention they need,” she said. “We often think animals are lucky when they have loving homes, but humans are lucky when they can connect with an animal that gives them unconditional love.”

Each adoptable pet is vaccinated, neutered, microchipped and comes with a municipal license and a free bag of pet food. To see photos, ages and descriptions of available pets, visit this list of adoptees.

Adopting may not be an option for some, which is why HAS offers options to help temporarily get animals out of the shelter. Pajama party and foster care programs allow a host to learn more about an animal.
