Adopt a pet, hang a stocking at animal shelter

Sarge’s Animal Rescue Foundation is holding its “Home for the Holidays” promotion, in which “Youth For Sarge’s” members make Christmas stockings and each time a cat or dog is adopted, hang them at the Haywood County animal shelter to celebrate the animal going to a new home.

Also as part of the promotion, through Dec. 31, there will be a special adoption fee of $60 for dogs, $37 for female cats and $27 for male cats. The fee covers the cost of spay or neuter and a rabies vaccination.

“Home for the Holidays” has helped hundreds of abandoned or stray dogs and cats at the Haywood County Animal Shelter find homes during the holiday season by providing those low-cost adoptions. Sarge’s Animal Rescue Foundation and Aidan’s Fund supplement the fees to keep them lower to encourage more people to adopt.
