Despite reports that Safe Haven in Georgetown was considering closing its doors as early as Friday, the organization has announced a new promotion aimed to adopt out 100 animals throughout the summer.
"Safe Haven is still promoting our beautiful, adoptable animals," said spokeswoman Holly Melzer. "We need to find good homes for as many dogs and cats as possible."
"Welcome Home 100" aims to find homes for 100 adoptable cats and dogs this summer, according to a news release.
In July, Safe Haven will hold a "Pennies for Pit Bulls" promotion, wherein potential adopters pay one penny for every pound their new pit bull or pit bull mix weighs.
"If the dog weighs 54 pounds, that's 54 cents," states the news release.
Early Thursday, Safe Haven officials would not verify whether they were planning to close their doors.
Interim Director Cindy Woods said she has no comment because she's still not sure what will happen.
She did say the shelter has an overabundance of dogs, cats and kittens that are in need of good homes.
The shelter is running a $9 adoption fee special on kittens. It is unclear as to whether or not additional adoption fees will be lowered as Safe Haven continues to place all of its animals in new homes.
Safe Haven is located at 19022 Shingle Point Road. For more information, call (302) 856-6460 or visit www.safehavende.com.
