Tri-County Animal Shelter Announces September Promotions

August 29, 2017
The Tri-County Animal Shelter is pleased to announce the following September monthly promotions and reminders:
Somebody to Love Adoption Event (Saturday, Sept. 9)
On this special day, the shelter is reducing adoption fees for cats to $50 and dogs to $100. We have many pets looking for love. From cats and dogs to other critters, your true love awaits you at the shelter.
World Rabies Day (Thursday, Sept. 28)
This day is a great time to ensure all your pets are vaccinated against rabies. Rabies is one of the most serious contagious diseases, but it is 100 percent preventable. Dogs, cats, and ferrets are required to have current rabies vaccines. Call your veterinarian today to vaccinate your pet. Low-cost vaccinations are available. Call the Humane Society of Charles County at 301-645-8181 or Paw Prints Animal Hospital at 301-885-0263 for more information about low-cost options.
Coming to an Area near You (Saturdays, Sept. 2 and 9)
