Editor's note: This version corrects the reduced adoption cost.
Lucas County Canine Care & Control is holding a “Reduce, Reuse, Rescue” adoption event Saturday.
Dog adoption fees during an Earth Day-themed event from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the 410 S. Erie Street shelter near downtown Toledo will be reduced from $100 to $78. Adopters must also purchase a $25 dog license.
Information on recycling and green living as well as crafts and games for children will be included in event activities.
The shelter is seeking old bedding, blankets, and towels to reuse for the dogs at the shelter.
Empty cardboard boxes and toilet-paper rolls also can be reused for enrichment programs for the dogs. Donations of money and other items to benefit the dogs will also be accepted.
