Tri-County Animal Shelter Announces October Promotions

September 26, 2017

The Tri-County Animal Shelter is pleased to announce the following October monthly promotions and reminders:

Cat Appreciation Month (Monday, Oct. 2 to Tuesday, Oct. 31) 
In honor of National Cat Day on Oct. 29, the shelter will offer feline friends at a discounted rate during October. Senior cats 6 years old and over will be $10, cats ages 1 to 5 years old will be $25, and kittens younger than 1 year old will be $50. Come adopt your new furry friend today!

National Feral Cat Day (Monday, Oct. 16)
This day is a great time to learn more about feral cats and Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR). Feral cats are not socialized to people like pet cats are. TNR is a process where feral cats are trapped, spayed or neutered, vaccinated for rabies, and then returned to the location they were trapped. TNR stabilizes and reduces feral cat populations. Many area clinics off special promotions for the altering of feral cars. Contact the Paw Prints Animal Hospital at 301-885-0263 or the Humane Society of Charles County at 301-645-8181 for more details.

Halloween Paw-ty (Friday, Oct. 20)
Celebrate Halloween with us this year at the Brandywine Pet Valu (15904 Crain Highway, Brandywine) from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Meet adoptable animals and get great deals in the store.
