The County of Summit will host an Adopt-a-Thon on Saturday, November 4, 2017 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., at the Summit County Animal Control Facility, located at 250 Opportunity Parkway in downtown Akron. The event is sponsored by Summit County Executive Ilene Shapiro and Fiscal Officer Kristen M. Scalise.
Dogs and cats will be made available for adoption from the Division of Animal Control for the low price of $10 per animal (regularly $94 per dog, $60 per cat). The animals will be fully vetted (blood work, flea treatments, intestinal de-worming, spay/neuter and vaccinations) and ready to be taken home that day. Citizens who adopt a dog will also be required to purchase a 2018 Summit County Dog License for $18.
“Summit County’s Adopt-A-Thons have been hugely successful, and are a testament to the hard work and dedication of our employees at the Animal Control facility to find these animals good homes,” said County Executive Ilene Shapiro. “I encourage families of Summit County to come to the Adopt-a-Thon and help us find these wonderful animals their forever homes.”
“The Division of Animal Control does a wonderful job hosting the annual Adopt-a-Thon,” said Fiscal Officer Scalise. “My office will be there again this year to ensure dogs and puppies are registered with the County before they go to their new homes. A County dog tag is their ticket home if they are ever lost, stolen or run away.”
Residents are also encouraged to donate dog or cat food for the animals housed at the shelter during the Adopt-a-Thon. For more information contact the Summit County Division of Animal Control at 330-643-2845.
