TWINSBURG — The Humane Society of Summit County, 7996 Darrow Road in Twinsburg, invites adopters to take advantage of reduced prices and find their new best friend before the holidays at the "Fall for Me" Adopt-a-thon on Nov. 18 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. With application approval, adopters will receive 50 percent off adoption fees for animals over six months of age. Normally, adult cats are $50 and adult dogs are $125.
HSSC rescues Summit County’s companion animals that are victims of cruelty, neglect and abandonment as well as sick and injured strays. More than 230 dogs, cats, and small animals such as rabbits, guinea pigs, ferrets and mice are currently available for adoption in the care of the Humane Society of Summit County.
One deserving animal is Geronimo, a handsome pit-bull terrier mix who is about four years old and weighs 75 pounds. HSSC is a no time-limit facility and this pup has been waiting for adoption for nearly two years but he is eager to join a family and find his forever home. He is well mannered, energetic and would do best in a home with older children. Adopting a shelter pet is a life-changing way to help the animals of Summit County.
All HSSC animals receive basic veterinary care, are up-to-date on age-appropriate vaccinations and preventative treatments, spayed or neutered and microchipped prior to adoption. Adoption counselors work with potential adopters to help identify animals that are a good fit for their home and family. Also, many dogs in care receive basic obedience training to improve manners and make them ready to fit right in at their new homes. Available animals including dogs, cats and small animals like rabbits and guinea pigs can be viewed online at summithumane.org or by visiting the shelter during normal hours, from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday-Friday; 10 a.m to 6 p.m. Saturday; and 1 to 5 p.m. on Sunday (closed Monday).
