GREENE COUNTY, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — You can give a pet in need a forever home while helping out a local animal shelter.

The Greene County Humane Society is taking part in the Bissell Pet Foundation’s Empty The Shelters event. Now through the end of July the shelter will offer reduced adoption fees.

Dogs can be adopted for as little as $50, kittens cost $25, while adult cats can be adopted for no fee.

Each adoptable animal will be spayed or neutered, up-to-date on vaccinations, and microchipped with a lifetime registration. Adopters are encouraged to apply in advance and receive application approval before arriving at the shelter as all applicants are required to be approved prior to adopting.

“The more that we can place, then the more kennel we can open up to help more that are in need, that’s our goal,” manager Amanda Abney said.

The Greene County Humane Society is located in Linton. More information can be found online here.
