Residents from all walks of life were affected by Hurricane Florence. Four legged friends have been left homeless and are being housed at the local shelter.

Karen Suggs, Shelter Manager with the Bladen County Animal Shelter announced on Monday adoption fees for all dogs and cats for the month of October will be waived.

“We hope this will help displaced animals from the Hurricane that have not been reclaimed find homes,” Suggs stated.

There will still be fees involved in the adoption process. Vaccination fees will be charged at a rate of $15 for a cat and $25-$30 for a dog.

You may view photos of some of the animals available for adoption on the shelter’s Facebook page. There are numerous cats and dogs to choose from at the shelter located at 506 Smith Circle in Elizabethtown.

The hours for adoption are Monday-Friday 12:00-5:00. If you have any questions you are welcome to call the shelter 910-862-6918.
