Big Dogs Need Love Too!

Coconut Telegraph

Some dogs need a little extra help getting adopted so the Humane Society of Sarasota County has reduced adoption fees for these special canines. All of July, adoption fees are only $40 for dogs over 40lbs. Adoption fees include a comprehensive medical exam, vaccinations, spay or neutering, deworming and micro-chipping. “Many shelter dogs get overlooked because of their size, especially those over 40lbs.”, said Christen Benson, Executive Director of the Humane Society of Sarasota County. “But that just means there is more to love! Our large dogs tend to have longer stays and our staff and volunteers get to really know them as a result. We can use that knowledge to successfully match these dogs with loving and lasting homes.” Make a shelter dog’s dream of finding a home come true and adopt today!
