Facing a spring surplus of rescue pets, Placer County’s Auburn animal services center will lower adoption fees from March 29 - April 9. Dog adoptions - normally $118 plus a $20 licensing fee - are just $20 (plus the $20 licensing fee). Cat adoption fees are reduced from $98 to $15 (no licensing fee).
“With the warmer weather calling us outside, now’s a great time to get out there and enjoy it with a new pet and give one of these wonderful animals a forever home,” said Anna Piland, Placer County animal services manager.
