If you've been thinking about adding a dog to your family, but haven't gotten around to it yet, allow San Francisco's Animal Care and Control to dangle a treat in front of your nose: adoption fees for all their dogs are slashed in half until Friday. In half! That's a lot of extra kibble.
According to the ACC, they are "currently packed to the rafters with wonderful adoptable dogs - but the shelter has very little room to house new arrivals." Hence the "sale," an effort to clear some space in their shelter for new pups, and to get their current batch into loving homes.
At publication time, the agency's online Adoption Center lists 45 available pups, with a wide variety of sizes and breeds (30 are "small," perfect for a pet-allowing SF apartment).
To adopt a pet from the ACC, you need to be over 18, be able to demonstrate permission from your residence's owner to have a pet, and have ID.
Qualified adopters can then get 50% off the adult dog fee of $135, or the puppy fee of $175. For that price, along with a new BFF (that's you) your pup will get a free vet exam, a microchip, a one-year dog license for SF, 20% off coupons for pet supplies at Pet Food Express, vaccinations and spay or neuter surgery.
You can check out the ACC's available dogs here, and can come to the shelter (1200 15th Street at Harrison) any time between 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. (they stay open until 7 on Wednesdays) to meet your new pal.
