Get something you’ll love… 

This Black Friday, give a sheltered animal a home for the holidays! This weekend, visit Woods Humane Society for their Clear the Shelter Adopt-a-Thon, where they’re offering fee-waived adoptions on all animals! Usually, adoption fees range from $65-$150 depending on the animal and include spaying/neuter fees, vaccinations, and micro-chipping costs. With the help of Subaru and the ASPCA, Woods hopes to share the love of adopting a dog or cat in need this holiday season by waiving all fees. Get something the entire family will love at Woods, and they’ll love you right back!
