For the next three months, you can adopt for free a shelter dog featured at a county Board of Supervisors meeting — courtesy of County Manager Tom Manos.
Manos will cover the $85 adoption fee for every dog featured at the county Board of Supervisors meeting through Nov. 28.
Meetings usually are held every other Wednesday and always begin with a pet showcase of a dog from a county shelter.
At Wednesday’s meeting, county Animal Care and Control spokesman Audie Greybear featured a 9-month-old Yorkshire terrier, who was named “Rainy” after recent monsoon storms. Rainy was adopted that afternoon.
The waived adoption fee includes vaccinations, sterilization and a microchip. Showcase pets are adopted on a first-come, first-served basis. Call county Animal Care and Control at 602-506-PETS (7387).
Meetings start at 9 a.m. at the Supervisors’ Auditorium, 205 W. Jefferson St., Phoenix. Go to maricopa.gov/bos for the schedule.
