The Oklahoma City Animal Shelter is attempting to reduce its population of dogs and cats by offering free and reduced adoption fees.
There are about 500 dogs and cats at the shelter, officials said. Cat and kitten adoptions will be free until the population at the shelter is reduced.
Dogs and puppies can be adopted for $30 during August.
All dogs and cats have been spayed or neutered and have been given up-to-date shots.
The reduced adoption fees are part of the shelter’s 92-day effort to adopt 2,300 animals. According to its Facebook page, the shelter was getting close to its goal as of Thursday afternoon.
The Oklahoma City Animal Shelter is open for adoptions from noon to 5:45 p.m. every day except holidays. The shelter is at SE 29 and Bryant, 1.5 miles east of Interstate 35.
Adoptable pets can be viewed online at www.okc.gov/animalwelfare/adoption.html.
