Someone has paid the adoption fees, 10 bucks for cats and 30 bucks for dogs at the Mercer County Animal Shelter. There are 150 dogs and cats that need adopted. If you were thinking about adopting a dog or a cat now would be a great time to do this because there are no adoption fees. Please consider that once you adopt an animal they will or can become part of your family or even a pet companion. They will grow if you adopt a puppy or kitten and they will require vet care. I have a shout out to the Green Valley Animal Hospital. The vets there have always worked with me and are very reasonable fees compared to other local vets. They also like adopted animals so if you are getting your animals spade or neutered please tell them you adopted your animal. I've seen fees become less when a person adopts animals. Please help adopt a cat or dog and I am not sure how long there will be no adoption fees, but one can call the Mercer County Animal Shelter to check about the time frame. If I'm not mistaken, it was until the end of the month. Merry Christmas to everyone and may you have a blessed holiday season!

Just wanted to keep this around the top of the threads so perhaps pet adoptions can happen or I was hoping a No Kill Animal Shelter would take some of the dogs and cats since there were no fees to get the animals. They have some really cute cats and medium-large dogs. I've never had any regrets for the dogs I've adopted even though they were adopted at various places they still are very obedient, friendly, and enjoy getting attention. The dogs I've adopted have become part of my family.

Thanks for pointing this out. Our local humane society does its best to point this out and that is the reason that their adoption fees are a bit stiff... To remind people that it's going to be more of a commitment than a bowl of water and the cheapest food you can find.

I was blessed to have been able to adopt a couple furbabies from here. I am just waiting for a transport to Berkeley springs.... I adopted Bridget as well as a beagle/ blue Merle pup and Austin. Who just needs to be vetted now... Thank you Stacey Martin!

Thank you for saving animal's lives. I hope and pray that you have even more fun and happiness that I've had with my adoptive dogs. I wish you the very best. I appreciate you adopting pets from a place where after a period of time they would lose their lives. Yippee! More animals adopted. Stacey Martin...you rock! Thank you Mercer County Animal Shelter and Stacey Martin!

With so many divorces, families losing their jobs, or even illness...just people falling on hard times... Many pets need to be adopted. Please, please if your family or you are looking for a pet, please check out local or even animal shelters online to adopt a pet or pets. If you have extra newspapers, fostering an animal, donate dog or cat food, or even a few minutes to volunteer helping an animal be adopted, please help these critters. Some never even get a chance to have a good home because so many people will not spade and neuter their animals. Please even word of mouth about animals needing home helps pets find new homes. There are too many animals being killed in our animal shelters.
