Woods Humane Society has adopted out 116 animals during its annual Black Friday Adopt-a-Thon, the organization said Sunday.
As of 3:30 p.m. Sunday, six dogs and six cats were left at the shelter in San Luis Obispo, the organization said. The special, which waives all adoption fees for dogs and cats, started Friday and ends at 5 p.m. Sunday.
All adoptable animals are spayed or neutered, vaccinated and microchipped prior to being put up for adoption.
While Woods is encouraging all dogs and cats to be adopted, Steve Kragenbrink, the community programs director, said there’s always animals that have extra needs. There are more cats at the shelter this year due to the partnership with Woods North County, and black dogs and cats always need more attention because they are often overlooked in shelters.
Never miss a local story.
More than 2,100 animals have been adopted from Woods this year, topping last year’s adoption total of 1,700.
The Woods Humane Society shelter is at 875 Oklahoma Ave. off Highway 1. More information, including a list of adoptable animals, is available at woodshumane.org.
