Big Adoption Week discounts big dogs

We like big mutts and we cannot lie…but we like them even better when they’re on their way home! It’s easy for little dogs and puppies to find homes, but sometimes the bigger ones end up waiting. There are lots of patient big dogs at Woodford Humane right now hoping their new best friend is about to walk through the door, a few of whom have even been here longer than six months. We think it’s time the big dogs got a little extra time in the spotlight. That’s why we’ve made this week the Big Adoption Week: through Saturday, adoption fees for dogs 50 lbs. and up are 50 percent off! If you pick out a dog that falls just shy of 50 lbs., be extra nice to your adoptions counselor and they just might round up. Approved adoption applications are required with every adoption, as always. You can check out a listing of our adoptable pets online at woodfordhumane.org, or just stop by and say hello in person. If you’re interested in adopting, plan for enough time to visit with the dogs, fall in love, and get your paperwork taken care of. To adopt the same day, your application must be submitted an hour prior to closing. Woodford Humane Society has a couple of plans in place to help you make sure your new big friend is really the right fit for your family: on-site introductions and our foster to adopt program. If you already have a dog at home and would like to make sure your resident dog and your potential new pup will get along, we are happy to facilitate a safe introduction at the Adoption Center – just make sure your dog is current on vaccines before bringing them out. If the introduction goes well and you decide to adopt (or if you have kids at home, or if you have other pets at home, or really just to be safe), our foster to adopt program gives you a one-week trial period to make sure everybody meshes well once you get them home. If you love big dogs as much as we do and have a little extra room in your home and your heart, come on out and meet our dogs before time runs out on the Big Adoption Week! That 50 percent discount on large dogs only lasts through 5 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 7. To find out more about our adoptable pets, big or small, get in touch with us at manager@woodfordhumane.org or 859-873-5491.
