Oyster Bay Town Supervisor Joseph Saladino and Councilman Tom Hand today announced that the Town’s Animal Shelter will waive adoption fees throughout the month of September.
Supervisor Saladino stated, “We invite residents looking for a new pet to come down to the Town’s Animal Shelter during the month of September. Our animal shelter has a wonderful reputation for providing great care to the pets housed there, and has a long history of uniting those looking for the perfect new furry companion!”
During the month of September, the shelter will waive the general adoption fees of $80 per dog and $84 per cat. All usual adoption services will be provided, including the spaying or neutering of the animal, vaccination and microchipping.
“In addition to free adoption month, the Town will be hosting a Rabies Vaccination Clinic at the Animal Shelter on September 16th from 10 am to 2 pm,” added Councilman Hand. “No reservations are necessary for the clinic, and the clinic will also be offering to microchip pets for $25, so if they ever get lost, they can be taken to a vet clinic or animal shelter where they will be scanned for a microchip ID and returned to their rightful owner.”
The Town of Oyster Bay Animal Shelter is located at 150 Miller Place in Syosset. The shelter is open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
