Animal Rescue League offering reduced adoption fees courtesy of Bissell

The Animal Rescue League of Berks County, Cumru Township, is participating in Bissell Pet Foundation’s Empty the Shelters — Holiday Hope adoption event Dec. 1 through Dec. 8.

Bissell is covering costs to make adoption fees $50 or less for each dog or cat over 6 months of age adopted during the nationwide event.

All potential adopters must go through the ARL’s regular procedures to adopt, including the completion of an adoption profile and speaking with an adoption counselor to ensure that the pet they select is a good match for their home, family, and lifestyle, a statement released Friday said.

Dog adopters need to bring cash or a check for a $7.20 dog license, which is required at the time of adoption under Pennsylvania law.

Adopters also need to bring a cat carrier (or they can purchase one from the ARL for $5) and a dog collar and leash (or they can purchase them from the ARL).

View available pets online at or visit the shelter at 58 Kennel Road, Cumru Township.

Adoption hours are Monday through Friday, 1 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. (wait list closes at 6 p.m.) and Saturdays and Sundays noon to 5 p.m. (wait list closes at 4:30 p.m.)

The ARL said it is one of more than 380 shelters in 43 states participating in Bissell’s program.
