Free Animal Adoptions at County Shelters

September 11, 2018 Updated: September 11, 2018

All animal adoption fees are being waived this week at Contra Costa Animal Services shelters in Martinez and Pinole to clear shelter space.

The free adoptions will be available from Sept. 11 through Sept. 14, at the shelter at 4800 Imhoff Place in Martinez and at 910 San Pablo Ave. in Pinole, according to the agency.

Although adoption fees will be waived, that does not include the cost of licensing and any refundable deposits for surgery, animal services officials said.

People can visit either shelter to meet the animals there and can also visit to see what animals are available for adoption.
