NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Metro Animal Care and Control is offering discounted adoption fees after reaching capacity.

From Oct. 1 through Oct. 8, adoption costs for all shelter pets will be half-off for qualified adopters.

“Adoption events are a great way to raise awareness about the many dogs and cats that are in need of permanent homes,” said spokeswoman Rebecca Morris. “We need the support of the community to make events like this a success.”

Currently, there are 90 dogs and more than 70 cats that are waiting to find their forever homes.

Potential adopters will meet with an adoption counselor to find the best match for their family.

Metro Animal Control is located at 5125 Harding Place. It’s open for adoption Monday through Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Thursday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
