The Humane Society of the Treasure Coast (HSTC) is offering incentives to prompt more adoptions at its Palm City shelter due to crowded conditions. The following discounts will apply through the end of June 2015. All cat and kitten adoptions are now just $10, a $30 savings from the regular adoption fee of $40. Pairs of rabbits and guineau pigs are available for $10 for the pair (rabbits are normally $20 each and guineau pigs $10 each).
Currently, the HSTC has more than 90 cats and kittens and over 26 guineau pigs and 20 rabbits that are looking for forever homes. In addition, adoption fees on senior cats and dogs seven years of age and older will be covered for qualified adopters until further notice, thanks to the generosity of an anonymous benefactor.
Adopters can visit the shelter at 4100 SW Leighton Farm Ave., Palm City, Mon. through Sat. from 10 a.m.–5 p.m., (Wed. until 7 p.m.) and on Sunday from 10 a.m.–4 p.m. Interested parties must go through the HSTC adoption interview and review process to qualify as an adopter. Cats also may be adopted at Thrift Store Central, 2585 SE Federal Highway, Stuart, and at Thrift Store North, 1099 NW 21st St., Stuart. The shelter and thrift stores’ adoption hours are 10 a.m.–5 p.m.
Each adoption includes sterilization (spay or neuter), an overall wellness check, age-appropriate vaccinations including rabies, first de-worming of hookworms and roundworms, microchip and registration, heartworm test for dogs (six months and older), feline leukemia test for cats, free 30 days of Pet Health Inc. pet insurance, one $5 off Hill's Science Diet pet food and $30 off one HSTC dog obedience class.
