Christmas in July Adopt-a-Thon

July 20th, 2024


Christmas will come early this year at the HSHA annual Christmas in July Adopt-a-Thon! 

This event features reduced adoption rates of $20 for dogs and $10 for cats/kittens and critters. Adoption fee includes spay/neuter surgery, microchip, vaccinations, and flea treatment.  

This year, you can enjoy the Adopt-a-Thon from the comfort of your couch or stop by to see the pets available – either option gets you the same discount, and all applications are timestamped and viewed in the order they are received (both online and paper applications).

All available pets will be on our Adoptable Pets page and updated throughout the event.  Also check out our Facebook page for live updates!

Despite lowered adoption fees, the adoption process and requirements will remain the same. Potential adopters will need to fill out an application and be approved by our Adoption Center Team before a Meet & Greet is scheduled.  Please note that this means that there will be no visitation with animals during public hours.

Helpful tip:  to help adoption application processing to go faster, please have vaccination records for your current pets ready.

Christmas in July is held in an effort to encourage the community to consider adoption and ease typical summer overcrowding in the shelter.  Each summer, hundreds of homeless pets, especially cats and kittens, find their way to HSHA.

This event is a prime opportunity to give a deserving homeless pet a loving new home and a second chance.
