Fallston, MD (January 18, 2018) – Looking for an MVP (Most Valuable Pet)? Visit the Humane Society of Harford County (HSHC) before The Big Game and recruit the perfect “tail”gate partner! Adoption fees on all cats and dogs will be reduced to just $52 from Sunday, January 28 through Sunday, February 4 so every animal can get off the sidelines and onto your comfy couch permanently.

“We’re teaming up with the ASPCA and Animal Planet to get our shelter dogs and cats into homes in the days leading up to the game,” said Cat Kelly, shelter operations director at HSHC. “The shelter will take on a football theme for a week, and since this is the 52nd playoff game, we’re discounting dog and cat adoptions to just $52.”

Interested adopters can view the all-star lineup of available animals and download an adoption application in advance by clicking here. Although adoption fees are reduced, there is a required $50 deposit for a HASP (Harford Animal Sterilization Program) certificate if the animal is not already spayed or neutered. That fee is refunded upon completion of the procedure within 60 days.

Furry armchair quarterbacks adopted from HSHC include a distemper vaccination (DHPP for dogs & FVRCP for cats), a rabies vaccination (if the animal is at least 3 months old), canine kennel cough vaccination, canine heartworm test, FeLV (feline leukemia) & FIV (feline immunodeficiency virus) testing, de-wormer, flea & tick preventative, a microchip, a free sample of Hill’s Science Diet food, and a general exam.
