Help find fur-ever homes for Hayward Animal Shelter pets at a discount during the annual holiday adoption event Wednesday, Dec. 9, through Saturday, Dec. 12, sponsored by vacuum cleaner manufacturer and floor-care company Bissell.

The Bissell Pet Foundation picks up most of the costs associated with responsible adopting out of shelter pets—such as vaccinations, sterilizations, microchip identification for dogs, and cardboard carriers for transporting cats and rabbits.

Under the program, adoptions cost just $20, plus a $17 dog license fee for dogs if going to a Hayward home.

The shelter also has other types of animals for adoption, such as hamsters, guinea pigs, rats, birds and reptiles.

Adoptions are by appointment only.  For more information, including adoption requirements and links for downloading an application and making an appointment, visit the Bissell Holiday Hope Virtual Adoption Event pages on the City of Hayward’s online calendar.
