Adoptable dogs seek homes for the Holidays

Released: December 18, 2012 at 2:10 p.m.

WINNIPEG, MB - There are 49 adoptable dogs at Animal Services who are looking for loving homes for the holidays. To help these homeless dogs, Animal Services will be holding an Adopt-a-Dog sale on Thursday, December 20 and Friday, December 21 from 12 noon to 5:30 p.m., and Saturday, December 22 from 12 noon to 4:30 p.m. at 1057 Logan Avenue.

All in-house dog adoptions are only $99 and include license, micro-chip, spay/neuter, basic shots, food and pet health insurance.

Animal Services officials remind the public that dogs over six months of age must have and wear a dog license. Stray dogs found wearing a current license are given a “free ride home” once a year.

One such dog that was picked up without a license and is now up for adoption is Ming.

In 2011, 601 dogs wearing a current license were reunited by 311 without ever setting foot in the Animal Services’ facility. Dog license tags protect one’s dog and license revenues help provide the essential service of animal control in Winnipeg.

Animal Services officials remind pet owners to call 311 and visit Animal Services if you lose your dog.
