Adopting a pet just got cheaper

-A A +A

Event July 12 in Chiefland

If the cost of adopting a pet from Levy County Animal Services has kept you from finding that perfect companion, has the county got a deal for you. 

   The shelter will have animals available for adoption at a discount on Saturday, July 12, at Tractor Supply in Chiefland, said County Animal Services Director David Weatherford. 

   The Levy County Commission approved lowering the fees to:

• Dogs - $40 for males and $55 for females

• Cats - $25 for males and $40 for females. 

   The difference in fees is because neutering a male costs less than spaying a female animal. 

Only cash payments will be accepted at the one-day event.
