City officials will celebrate the completion of some recent improvements at the Fayetteville Animal Shelter during an open house event scheduled from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 21.

The public is invited to stop by and see the newly completed free-roaming cat rooms, a relocated puppy nursery, and outdoor improvements to the shelter’s dog park.

Fayetteville Mayor Lioneld Jordan will lead a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 10:30 a.m.

The improvements were made this year through donations and a bequest from the late Lib Horn, former shelter director, according to a news release.

During the event, adoption fees will be reduced by half – cat and kitten adoptions will be $10, while dogs and puppies will cost $30. All pets will come spayed or neutered, and will be microchipped and up-to-date on vaccinations.

The standard adoption application (click here for an application) must be filled out and approved before adoptions are final, so those interested in the promotion are encouraged to fill out and turn in an application ahead of time so that they can be pre-approved.

The shelter is located at 1640 S. Armstrong Ave.
