BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - Companion Animal Alliance in Baton Rouge is waiving adoption fees for some animals.

The shelter will waive fees for spayed or neutered cats and dogs on Black Friday. Fees will not be waived for pets that have not been spayed or neutered.

According to officials with the shelter, the hope is that waiving fees will encourage more people to adopt a pet and alleviate kennel space. Right now, animal shelters across the country are facing a national capacity crisis.

The shelter is located at 2550 Gourrier Avenue in Baton Rouge. The facility is open every Tuesday through Friday between 12 p.m. and 6 p.m., on Saturdays between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m., and on Sundays between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m.

In addition to adoptions, the shelter encourages families to consider fostering a pet. Some animals need fostering for only about a week to recover from a medical treatment. Meanwhile, other pets are looking for a place to call home until a permanent family is found.
