Staff at the Brooke County Animal Shelter hold four of the many cats that may be adopted from the shelter at a discounted rate through its Purrsday Thursday promotion. Each Thursday the adoption fee for cats 1 year old and older will be reduced to encourage adoption of the felines. The cost will vary according to whether the cats have been spayed or neutered and received vaccinations prior to adoption, and adopters must submit the normally required pre-adoption forms.
The shelter also has a variety of dogs available for adoption. Located on Mac Barnes Drive, off state Route 2 south of Beech Bottom, it is open from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday.
