BECKLEY - The Humane Society of Raleigh County is hoping a holiday special will help shelter dogs and cats find homes.
Through Christmas Eve, 12 selected dogs and cats will be available for adoption at discounted rates. The "12 Strays of Christmas" will be available for a reduced adoption fee plus a refundable spay and neuter charge.
"Our goals with this campaign are two-fold," HRSC board member Melissa Lyons said. "We want to find homes for all of our pets, but we also hope that the community will adopt rather than shop for their next best friend."
The "Stray of the Day" will be announced via the HSRC Facebook page. The shelter is open Tuesdays through Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
