Jan. 21, 2014. While the High Country is still celebrating Martin Luther King, Jr. and his contributions to society this week, Dr. King was not the only one with a dream.

photoMany homeless animals in the High Country dream of finding their forever homes, and the Watauga Humane Society is happy to help, with their newly announced “I Have a Dream” special. 

“This special is going to be going from now until Feb. 12,” said Shyloh Favreau, assistant manager of the Watauga Humane Society.

“All of our dogs and cats that are six months and older will have their adoption fee reduced to just $50. In addition, every day we are open we will feature a special ‘animal of the day’ to total 20 featured animals during the special who need to find homes.”

A total of ten cats and ten dogs are going to be offered up as featured pets, with a special adoption price of $25. These pets will be featured each day with a special write-up and a great photo of the animal to help them find their ideal human companion. Featured animals will be presented on the Watauga Humane Society’s Facebook page, here

Check back each day the shelter is open to see the new daily featured pet. 

“We are really trying to highlight some of our animals to get the word out there and help find them homes,” Favreau said. 

In order to do this special, the Watauga Humane Society has received special funding from the Park Foundation, The Bob and Carol Spector Foundation and the Ryan Newman Foundation. 

“These foundations are what is making it possible for us to run this special and find homes for these animals,” Favreau said. 

Alongside this adoption special, for the next few weeks the shelter will be offering the SNIPS program, which will offer a $15 spay or neuter for kittens and cats.
