Adoption prices are starting as low as just 5 dollars; they really want to make sure tall thee furry faces get to find their forever families. 

Shelter representatives say rescues like this can always be difficult. 

We spoke with Karen Buchan of Huntsville Animal Services. She says, “Sometimes a person may not realize. Their main concern is ‘I love cats’ and it could be dogs. ‘I love the animals and I just want to take care of them’ and it can get overwhelming. So, it’s a hard situation ad we don’t have it too often but it does happen.”

During the pandemic, we’re all spending some extra time at home. It’s a perfect time to check out a few of the cats -- and dogs-- by visiting the shelter online or in person, with safety measures in place.

The following is an excerpt from a press release from Huntsville Animal Services sent August 13: 

It’s a perfect time to adopt by visiting online or in person and view all the pets available for adoption, including the dogs and puppies. If you see one or two that interest you, staff will be happy to assist you.  Visit the Adopt and Foster page on our website to learn more.
