Phoenix dog adoptions: October is Adopt a Shelter Dog Month

PHOENIX - Are you looking to add another member to your family?

Maricopa County Animal Care and Control says October is Adopt a Shelter Dog Month, and you can give one a new home for as little as $17.

All dogs under three months of age are $50, and any that are three months or older are $17.

MCACC has reduced adoption fees in the last few months in hopes of finding hundreds of dogs new homes.

In September, MCACC said they took in an average of 118 animals each day.

Anyone who adopts a dog in October will be entered into a drawing to win one of four doggie gift baskets donated by The Pet Firm.
