Adoption Day at Durant Animal Shelter

Posted:

Durant, OK----Adoption Day runs from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday August 29 at the Durant Animal Shelter on Blanchard Rd. off of South Ninth Avenue.

The shelter is currently overcrowded, housing nearly 50 puppies and dogs---normally they have 30 to 35 dogs in custody.

Animal Control officials say most of the dogs they have are well-bred, healthy and good-natured--not your typical "pound" dog. If they are not adopted within the next week or so, they could be euthanized.

The Animal Shelter is offering the dogs for adoption at a flat rate of $100 which includes spade and neuter services as well as rabies shots and a free general checkup by a local veterinarian.
