In celebration of Pit Bull Awareness Month, the Delaware Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals is running a “pay the day” adoption special throughout October.
Pit Bull Awareness Month aims to bring positive awareness and attention to the American Pit Bull Terrier, an often misunderstood and maligned breed, according to SPCA officials.
Adoption fees for pit bulls throughout October will be the same as the day of the month. For example, someone who adopts a pit bull on Oct. 16 pays a $16 adoption fee. The special only applies for dogs ages six months and older. Visit the Georgetown SPCA shelter, located at 22918 Dupont Highway.
The SPCA will hold an adoption event at Concord Pet Food and Supplies, located at 19287 Miller Road in Rehoboth Beach, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Oct. 19. All are invited to attend and meet some adoptable pets.
