Manatee County Animal Services hopes to increase animal adoptions.
During the month of September, the agency is offering dogs and cats that have been in the county shelter for 60 days or more for free to prospective families.
All dogs and cats will receive a health certificate, all current vaccinations and will be spayed or neutered and micro-chipped. A $10 license fee is required for Manatee County residents.
The special is available at both animal services locations: 305 25th St. W., Palmetto; and 1002 B., Manatee Ave. W., Bradenton. Both shelters are open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.
