They call it "Vets & Pets" and it's a chance for members of the United States military to have the pet adoption fees waived at the Erie County SPCA.
What is Vets & Pets?
In a nutshell, Vets & Pets is a program through the SPCA where members of the United States Military can get pet adoption fees waived. It's their way of saying thank you to members of the armed services (past and present).
Who is eligible to adopt with the waived fees?
The list includes individuals and immediate families of individuals on active duty, reserves, and honorable discharge, along with service-disabled veterans and those retired from military service!
How long does Vets & Pets run?
It's coming to an end soon! Vets & Pets started on May 22nd and will run through May 31st. So don't wait to get there to find a pet who needs you.
Where do you go to take advantage of Vets & Pets?
The location on Harlem Road in West Seneca will be open for the free adoption event. They'll be open this week Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday: 11 a.m. until 5 p.m. (guest passes for adoption issued until 4 p.m. only). There are off site locations too. They can be found here.
What do you need to bring?
According to their website, you will need to present your Military ID or DD214. If your spouse is currently serving outside of New York State, you will need to present a military spouse identification card.
If you are a pet person, adopting is easily one of the most fulfilling things you can do for them, and for you. We adopted two dogs in the last couple of years and they show us their appreciation every single day.
