The Oak Ridge Animal Shelter would like to invite you to celebrate 40 years at our 395 Belgrade Road location with a whole month of specials and activities. Through the month of October we will be featuring half price adoptions. Every available animal will have an adoption fee of $55.00 instead of $110.00. The discount price still includes, spay/neuter, microchip, DHPP and Bordatella vaccines (for dogs), FVRCP vaccine (for cats), a rabies vaccine, a dose of Frontline (for fleas and ticks) and a dose of dewormer.
