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 for  the schedule.
