Lucas County Canine Care & Control is offering $5 Adoptions to Fight Overcrowding

Posted on

TOLEDO, OH – Lucas County Canine Care & Control is filled to capacity and is offering all dogs 6 months and older for an adoption fee of $5 plus a $25 Lucas County dog license.

From Saturday, March 25 through Sunday, March 26, all dogs over 6 months old have a reduced adoption fee of  $5 plus a $25 dog license. Kelly Sears, Director of LC4 tells us, “Overcrowding in dog shelters is a problem across the country. Lucas County is no different. We want to encourage all of our residents to consider making one of our four-legged friends part of your family. If you aren’t in a position to adopt, we always need foster homes. Fosters provide a home and the love they so desperately need while we provide the rest.”  

The adoption fee includes having your new dog spayed or neutered, initial vaccinations, registered microchip, heartworm testing and prevention, and parasite prevention.

As of today, more than 87 dogs and puppies are searching for new homes at the LC4 Canine Care Center, 410 S. Erie St., with more dogs available for adoption each day.

LC4 has many dogs looking for their forever family. If you already have a dog and have room in your heart and your life for another, please be sure to bring your resident dog for a meet and greet. We strongly encourage families to bring their children to the Canine Care Center to meet their new pet. 

LC4 always accepts donations of newspapers, old (but clean) towels and blankets, treats, and toys. Interested volunteers are welcome to visit the shelter and complete an application or email Monetary donations can be made to Cutie’s Fund via cash, check or PayPal to help pay the costs for the medical needs of the dogs who come into our care.
