The Lee County Humane Society will run a “Clear the Kennels” adoption special throughout the summer to boost adoption rates.
According to LCHS Outreach and Development Coordinator Mary Wynne Kling, all animals that have been spayed and neutered will cost $10 to adopt.
“If those animals have not yet been spayed or neutered, there is an additional $50 refundable spay and neuter deposit. Once you show proof that the pet you’ve adopted has been spayed or neutered, then you get that deposit back,” Kling said.
If adopting an animal is not an option, Kling added that fostering and donating supplies, food or money to the LCHS’s “Summer of Second Chances” campaign are other great ways to help.
“We are in desperate need of non-clumping cat litter. We are going through over 500 pounds of cat litter a week,” Kling said. “We need canned kitten and puppy food, the wet kind, any brand is fine.”

Animals can also be viewed on the society’s Facebook page or through their Instagram @leecountyhumanesociety. Right are four pets available at the shelter as of last Friday.
