Unconditional Love for $50 Off

It’s true, you can’t buy love, however, you can rescue it (and save $50) thanks to The Heritage Humane Society and an anonymous donor. The shelter is helping adopters connect with their perfect dog match for a lifetime of goodness with Spring On In to Adopt. Thanks to the generosity of a hands-on donor wishing to stay anonymous, select dogs and puppies adopted April 7 – 19, 2023, will come with a $50 savings on their adoption fee.

Spring On In to Adopt

The Heritage Humane Society is filled to capacity with all different types of dogs. From various sizes and ages, from laidback buddies to the perfect jogging pal to goofy, fun-loving personalities, there are many possibilities for potential adopters to connect with their perfect pup. Every single one of them is reading to pour on unconditional love.

The Spring On In to Adopt promotion is April 7 – 19 excluding Mondays and Easter Sunday, April 9, when the Adoption Center is closed for pet viewing appointments and adoptions. Potential adopters are welcome Tuesdays – Sundays from 12 – 4:30 p.m.

The promotion is for dogs who are identified as available to go home the same day with a few exceptions. Some available dogs on the shelter’s website are in queue to be spayed or neutered, a requirement before they can be officially adopted. People can still come and meet the dogs and put in applications in the interim.

With the $50 savings, discounted prices are:

  • Puppies (10 months and younger) – $175
  • Adult Dogs <30 lbs – $150
  • Adult Dogs >31 lbs – $125
  • Senior dogs (9 years and older) – $100

The Heritage Humane Society is so grateful for the $50 per adopted dog donation made possible by a community member who wishes to remain anonymous. She shared that, “in routinely coming to the shelter and lately seeing so many more dogs there than usual, I wanted to be a part of the solution by covering $50 of the adoption costs for applicable dogs. Most importantly, their forever homes are somewhere in our community and I want to make it easier for the dogs and their forever families to connect.”

Bring home unconditional love

With Greater Williamsburg’s largest animal shelter overflowing with dogs, potential adopters have so many choices to choose from in finding their match. Ranging from four months old to thirteen years old, the variety of breeds includes, but is not limited to, beagles, pit bull terrier mixes, cane corso mixes, labrador retriever mix, German shepherd mix, a boxer mix and hound mixes.

Heritage Humane Society currently has 41 dogs available for adoption with 26 of them who are ready to go home today. Meet the available dogs of the Spring On In to Adopt promotion:

  • Tyson. An anonymous donor has sponsored his adoption fee.

Training classes discounted for new adopters

The Heritage Humane Society has a course selection of dog training classes and free workshops for area owners. For those who adopt from the shelter, they receive $40 savings on a six-week-long dog training class.

Fosters desperately needed

With more than 70 dogs currently in the care of The Heritage Humane Society, like shelters everywhere, relies heavily on volunteers to include fosters. Those who are interested can learn more online about becoming a foster. From there, they can submit an application and a member of the shelter staff will contact them. Fosters receive supplies, training and ongoing support from the shelter team.

Fido Field Trips

For those who are looking to give a shelter dog a break for a few hours, The Heritage Humane Society offers Fido Field Trips. From walks around around your neighborhood or around town to car rides down the Colonial Parkway and a ball throwing session in a field, the shelter always has pups who would love a field trip and some one-on-one time. Fido Field Trips are a part of the volunteer program at the shelter.

Connect with all of the shelter’s homeless pets

The Heritage Humane Society has more than 200 cats, dogs, and small pets in their care currently. These featured pups and the other adoptable pets are available during The Heritage Humane Society’s visiting and adopting hours from 12 to 4:30 p.m., Tues. through Sun.

To learn more, visit, call 757-221-0150, or visit The Heritage Humane Society located at 430 Waller Mill Rd, Williamsburg, VA 23185.
