[ARCHIVED] Maddie’s Pet Adoption Days Coming to Boulder City Shelter

A non-profit animal welfare organization will partner with the Boulder City Animal Shelter (BCAS) to make it a little easier to take home a dog or cat by waiving the City’s normal adoption fees.

During the two-day adoption event, that will run from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. September 27 and September 28, BCAS will waive all adoption fees for dog and cat adoptions. In exchange, Maddie’s® Pet Project will donate $200 to the Shelter for each dog or cat that finds a new home during the event.

“This is a very generous incentive that will hopefully encourage many more to come by the Shelter and check out the animals we have available,” explained Boulder City Animal Control Supervisor Ann Inabnitt. “Our thanks go to Maddie’s® Pet Project and to everyone who takes advantage of the opportunity.”

“We look forward to Boulder City Animal Control taking part, for the first time, in Maddie’s Pet Adoption Days,” noted Mark Robison, Co-Executive Director with Maddie’s® Pet Project – Saving Nevada’s Pets. “In exchange for waiving adoption fees to the public, the shelter will receive $200 for each cat and dog adopted during the two-day event, to help with its costs for spay/neuter, vaccinations, microchipping, and general feeding and care.”

Although the fees will be waived during this time, the adoption criteria will remain in place, said Inabnitt. She said everyone wishing to adopt must visit the shelter in person and property records will be checked for all potential adoptees. Landlords of those renting will be contacted to confirm animals are allowed on the property.

The Boulder City Animal Shelter is at 810 Yucca St. in Boulder City. For more information about the adoption event, call (702) 293-9283.
