Manatee County, FL -- You could start the new year with a new four-legged family member for free.
Manatee County Animal Services is having an after-Christmas Blitz, waiving the adoption fees for dogs and cats now through Saturday. You'll still need to get a pet license for $15, but the blitz is part of an effort to make sure no animals are put down this holiday season.
The special is available at both Animal Services locations: in Palmetto, 305 25th St. W. (open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.) and in Bradenton, 1002 B., Manatee Ave. W., (open Tuesday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.).
