The Ingham County Animal Shelter is so overwhelmed with animals, it's reducing the fee to adopt.

Right now you can get an adult cat for free.

Adoption fees for kittens under 6 months and all dogs are half off with dogs being $51 and kittens costing $41 dollars.

All animals are spayed or neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. Dogs are heartworm tested and cats are FeLuk and FIV tested.

For those wanting to help but are unable to adopt at this time, the shelter is also hosting their monthly foster orientation on Saturday, August 13th at 10am. Fostering is a great option for those who are able to take shelter animals into their home on a temporary basis. Foster families take on animals when the shelter is full, as well as taking animals with medical or behavioral issues.

The Ingham County Animal Control Shelter, located at 600 Curtis Street in Mason, is open for adoptions Tuesdays and Wednesday from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. and Thursday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
