Thanks to the generous contribution of two families, the fees for pets adopted from Stanislaus Animal Services Agency on Saturdays, Dec. 10 and Dec.17 will be covered.

"This is the first time sponsors from the local community have come forward to pay all adoption fees," said Annette Patton, Executive Director of Stanislaus Animal Services.

The family that adopted Stanley from the shelter has decided to give back to the community and is sponsoring all adoption fees on Saturday, Dec. 10. The owners of Swan Pools who are also animal lovers were inspired to sponsor all adoption fees on Saturday, Dec. 17.

"We are thrilled to have local members of the community who want to have a positive impact and make a forever difference with a human and animal life," said Patton.

Every animal adoption will come with a bag of pet food, a dog leash, dog training, and a PETCO Family Care Pack worth $650 in coupons for nutrition, toys, grooming products, cleaning supplies and more.

Stanislaus Animal Services Agency, located at 3647 Cornucopia Way in Ceres, is open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays; and 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturdays. The public may check its website for upcoming adoptions at
