Dunn County (WQOW) - Dunn County Humane Association is offering an adoption discount to get more adopters through the door.
The new program specifically targets seniors and veterans, in the hopes of encouraging the adoption of companion animals. The association hopes the pairing will be mutually beneficial, giving animals in need a new home and veterans and seniors some furry support.
"Those who are seniors or veterans, it can help lower blood pressure. If a veteran suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder, they have found that a pet can really help with coping with that mechanism," Amy Peck of the Dunn County Humane Association said.
Seniors and veterans will still need to go through the normal adoption process but will pay a lower adoption fee. The $50 discount is valid on one animal per year.
