This Black Friday, give and receive the gift of love to one (or two) of more than 300 pets in the care of the Humane Society for Hamilton County.

HSHC will offer $5 adoptions from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday.  

The hope is people will considering filling their hearts and not their carts this Friday as hundreds of unwanted, neglected and abused pets wait for the only thing on their wish lists this holiday season – a home.

"We struggle every day to keep up with the volume of new intakes," said Rebecca Stevens, executive director. "But, it is the increase in abuse, neglect and senior pets that have been coming in, some surrendered by their owners at the age of 18 years old, that breaks our hearts the most." 

The $5 adoption fee includes: spay/neuter, at least one round of vaccines, a microchip, food, a free wellness exam with a participating veterinarian and multiple discounts on pet services from training and boarding to invisible fencing.

Families who adopt a pet on Friday will also have the chance to win a $100 Three Dog Bakery Gift Card.

Some exclusions may apply.
