PENNSYLVANIA (WHTM) — You might be home for the holidays this year, but why not bring a new furry friend with you?
Humane Pennsylvania announced that they are offering fee-waived adoptions for the next 12 days as part of their sponsored “12 Days of Adoptions” event.
The event is being run in hopes that the shelters can be cleared for the holiday season.
You will be able to adopt a pet, free of charge, from Tuesday, Dec. 13 through Saturday, Dec. 24. All adoptions fees will be waived for potential adopters who are looking to bring a shelter pet home for the holidays.
