In an effort to raise awareness of shelters and rescue groups 3,000 adoption feels will waived on Jan. 24.
Change a Pet's Life Day is sponsored by Hill's Pet Nutrition. The company will be paying the adoption fees for the first 10 adoptions at 300 participating shelters. Adoption fees range between $25 and $300 depending on the shelter and the pet.
In addition to adoption fees, new adopters will get free Science Diet pet food and a training/information DVD. The company is also launching a toll-free number to answer new-pet-owner questions.
Two North Texas shelters and one North Texas rescue organization are taking part in the one day event.
