The Huntington Town board has waived the $80 adoption fee for 60 dogs at the town’s animal shelter through the end of the year. Dogs of varying ages, sizes and breeds are available.

In waiving the fee, town officials hope to encourage anyone looking to make a dog a part of their family this holiday season to consider those at the shelter who are in need of new home.

The $15 licensing fee and $8.50 charge for a rabies shot still apply. All dogs will have been spayed or neutered before they are sent to a home.
