Fees Waived August 14th -19th in Honor of Homeless Animal Week

In recognition of the International Homeless Animals Day, new Oyster Bay Town Supervisor Joseph Saladino and Councilwoman Michele M. Johnson announced that the Town’s Animal Shelter will waive adoption fees from Monday, August 14th through Saturday, August 19th.

Supervisor Saladino stated, “In recognition of International Homeless Animal Day, we invite residents to come make a new ‘furever’ friend at the Town’s Animal Shelter.  Our dedicated staff is happy to assist you in selecting the right furry friend for your family.”

During the week of August 14th – 19th, 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.

“Our animal shelter has a wonderful reputation of providing great care to the pets temporarily housed there while waiting for their new homes,” added Councilwoman Johnson. “I encourage anyone looking for a new pet to visit the Town’s shelter when looking for a new companion.”

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.  To view photos of some of the animals available for adoption, or to link to the shelter’s Facebook page, visit the Town’s website, or call (516) 677-5784 for more information.
