You've only got two days. If you have always wanted a fur-ever friend or you want to add another one to your family, now is the time.

If you have been considering adding a dog or cat to your family then you should consider doing so this September 15 and 16 according to Lafayette Consolidated Government.

Best Friends Animal Society is partnering with the Lafayette Animal Shelter and Care Center to allow for free pet adoption of cats and dogs on Friday, September 15, and Saturday, September 16.

Here are some things to think about from the professionals at the Lafayette Animal Shelter:

  • Owning a dog or cat costs more than the initial adoption fee. Food, veterinary care, heartworm/flea prevention, and proper identification—that means a collar with tags and a more permanent form of ID such as microchipping—can add up.
  • Time is also a factor. Dogs benefit from several hours of exercise and companionship every day. Cats are healthiest and happiest indoors and love to be treated to energetic play sessions. If your work demands that you travel often, or if you're out of the house most days and evenings, this may not be the right time to adopt.
  • It is important to consider whether your children, along with your resident pets, are able to accommodate the addition of a cat or dog to your household.If you can offer a loving home, be sure to check out the Lafayette Animal Shelter and Care Clinic to meet and greet the sweethearts waiting for a fur-ever home.

The hours on Friday are 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturday from noon until 2 p.m.
