Contra Costa Animal Services (CCAS) is offering $25 adoptions for all animals through May 14.

The $25 adoption special includes most fees associated with adopting an animal, including adoption fees, spay/neuter, micro-chipping and vaccination. The average cost of adoption is between $104-$284.

CCAS is among 110 shelters in 22 states offering reduced fee adoptions as part of the Bissell Pet Foundation’s “Empty the Shelter” adoption campaign.

“The goal of this promotion is to find loving homes for homeless pets in Contra Costa County,” official said.

“To permanently end the homeless pet problem, everyone across the country needs to understand that there are beautiful, worthy animals in shelters who should be the first choice when bringing a pet into your home,” said Cathy Bissell, Founder of the Bissell Pet Foundation. “You will get the most loving pet who will literally change your life because it’s so grateful to be loved. I want every person to know they can be part of the solution if they adopt a shelter pet.”

Take advantage of the adoption promotion by visiting CCAS’ Martinez adoption center to meet its animals. To view available pets online, please visit
