The Fayetteville animal shelter will offer free dog adoptions from Friday, July 29, through Saturday, Aug. 6.

The shelter is currently housing over 20 adoptable dogs, and officials said with more coming soon, the shelter’s kennels are getting quite full.

“We have some dogs who have been waiting a long time for that perfect person to come through the doors, and we want to make adoption everyone’s first choice,” said Justine Lentz, the city’s animal services superintendent.

All available dogs and puppies will be spayed or neutered, microchipped and vaccinated prior to going home with their new owners.

The adoption process starts online with an application form. Once approved, applicants are invited to visit the shelter and choose a dog.

The shelter is located at 1640 S. Armstrong Ave. and is open from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. weekdays, and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays.
