Animal Control: Adoption Event a ‘Huge Success’
During the "Thanks for Giving" event, Anne Arundel County Animal Control was able to adopt out 64 animals thanks to an anonymous donor.
Thanks to an anonymous donor, 64 animals were adopted from Anne Arundel County Animal Control during a week in November, which is more than twice the normal adoption rate.
According to a release, from Nov. 13-17, Anne Arundel County Animal Control was able to adopt out pets at no charge thanks to a donation from an anonymous benefactor. The donor paid the standard adoption fees for adopters during the time period.
Animal control as well as the police department are calling the “Thanks for Giving” adoption event a “huge success.” Animal Control staff and volunteers saw 64 animals adopted during the promotion—21 dogs/puppies and 43 cats/kittens.
During the same week in 2011, animal control adopted out 34 animals, according to a release. On average in 2011, Animal Control adopted out 24.5 animals per week compared to 28.4 animals per week in 2012.
Animal Control staff and volunteers would like to thank the generous donor who made this drastic increase in adoptions possible
