The Fayetteville animal shelter will offer free pet adoptions later this month as part of the annual Spring Fling adoption promotion event, which aims to help some homeless pets find their forever home.

During the event, set for April 8-20, adoption fees will be waived for dogs and cats at the shelter.

“The Fayetteville Animal Shelter is home to a diverse array of pets, each with its own unique personality and needs,” said Justine Lentz, animal services superintendent. “Whether you’re looking for a playful puppy, a cuddly cat or a laid-back older pet, we have animals that are sure to meet every person’s desires.”

All animals available for adoption come spayed or neutered, current on vaccines, and microchipped, officials said.

“As the warmer weather approaches, animal shelters tend to reach their capacity limits,” Lentz said. “The Spring Fling adoption promotion aims not only to enrich the lives of adoptable pets and their new families, but also to help us maintain the space and resources needed to continue our lifesaving work within the community.”

Fayetteville Animal Services is located at 1640 S. Armstrong Ave. Fore more information about the adoption process, and to see photos of available pets, visit fayetteville-ar.gov/539/Animal-Adoption-Process
