There are too many dogs and cats at the Washington Humane Society-Washington Animal Rescue League’s adoption centers and foster facilities! So this weekend (June 18 and 19) it’s cutting adoption fees by 50 percent.

It’s regularly $250 to adopt a puppy under 6 months old; bringing home such a bundle of joy will now run you $125. You can bring home a dog 6 months-6 years old for $100. If you want a cat 10 years old or older, it’ll only cost $12.50. At these prices you almost can’t afford to not add a new member to your family. You can see some of the pets here.

All pets come spayed or neutered and microchipped. (As NPR’s Guy Raz can tell you, that can be really important!) The adoption centers are at 71 Oglethorpe Street, Northwest, and 1201 New York Avenue, Northeast.
