free dog adoptions
There are currently over 230 dogs available for adoption at the Stanislaus Animals Services Agency. The first 50 adoptions this week are free due to a generous donation (Photo contributed).

An anonymous donor has stepped forward to sponsor the adoption fees for the next 50 dogs eagerly waiting to find their forever homes at the Stanislaus Animal Services Agency shelter.

With 234 dogs encompassing a diverse mix of sizes, ages, and breeds currently awaiting adoption at the county shelter, the furry residents are ready to shower families with unconditional love.

The campaign kicked off on Tuesday and will continue through Saturday or until the 50 dogs have found their happy-ever-after families.

"Their benevolent spirit is turning dreams into reality for our beloved furry companions and the families fortunate enough to welcome them. This gesture arrives at a pivotal juncture, given that the shelter's capacity, designed for 168 dogs, is currently housing (234) dogs," said Vaughn Maurice, Executive Director of Stanislaus Animal Services Agency.

The shelter is located at 3647 Cornucopia Way in Modesto.
