Space is getting a bit tight at the Prince William County Animal Shelter.
“It’s summer and, unfortunately, summer means a lot of pets are coming back into our shelters,” Prince William Humane Society Adopt Shop Center Manager Jill Gregory said.
According to Gregory, the shelter is currently full.
To address the issue, the Prince William Humane Society, the shelter’s community partner, is hosting a “Paws 4 Pops” adoption event this weekend.
“We’re hoping that by having this adoption event in honor of dads, we can get as many adoptions as we can and alleviate some of that stress,” Gregory said.
For the event, the humane society is offering a 50 percent discount on all adoption fees.
Community members can receive a discount at the animal shelter, as well.
Community members interested in participating in the adoption event can visit the Prince William Humane Society, 17983 Dumfries Shopping Plaza in Dumfries, between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. on Saturday and between Noon and 4 p.m. on Sunday.
The Prince William Animal Shelter, located at 14807 Bristow Road in Manassas, will be open from 11 a.m to 5 p.m. on Friday, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, and from Noon to 4 p.m. on Sunday.
