SALISBURY — The Rowan County Animal Shelter will offer animal adoptions at a reduced price on Saturday.

They will be available from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.

All pet adoptions will be 80 percent off the standard price. That means $16 for animals that haven’t been spayed or neutered and $3 for those that have.

Each animal is provided vaccinations, a microchip and a sample of free food.

Both dogs and cats are dewormed.

For dogs, vaccines include a 5-in-1 treatment for adenovirus cough and hepatitis, distemper, parainfluenza and parvovirus.

Dogs are also vaccinated for bordetella.

Cats are given a 3-in-1 vaccine against rhinotracheitis, calicivirus and feline distemper.

Both dogs and cats are given a one-year rabies vaccine if age-appropriate.

“Unaltered” animals come with a $70 voucher to be spayed or neutered.
