Dallas Animal Services drops adoption prices
Dallas Animal Services (DAS) has dropped the price of adoption for dogs from $85 to $45, and the price for cat adoption from $55 to $35. These lower prices reflect the mission of DAS to increase its live release rate – the number of pets that get adopted to new homes.
“Dallas has one of the highest intake numbers in the country, so we are working very hard to find homes for every happy, healthy animal that comes into our care,” said DAS Director Ed Jamison. “We average over 70 dog intakes a day, and kitten season is right around the corner. If lowering the everyday adoption price helps one of our animals find their perfect home, it is worth it.”
