Kern County Animal Services has announced that North Bakersfield Toyota and Bill Wright Toyota will cover adoption fees for animals at all three shelters starting on Friday.
The dealerships will cover adoption fees on Friday, Saturday and Monday at the Bakersfield shelter, located at 3951 Fruitvale Ave., as well as the Mojave and Lake Isabella shelters.
“I love seeing the shelters empty and especially knowing that the animals have a home and a family for Christmas. Helping in making this happen makes me truly happy,” said Steve Downs, owner of both businesses.
KCAS Director Nick Cullen thanked the dealerships in a press release for their efforts.
“We now know that this idea of finding homes for Kern County’s homeless pets is such a community effort,” he said. “We would never achieve finding so many forever homes for our shelter pets without support from local businesses like Bill Wright Toyota and North Bakersfield Toyota.”
The Mojave shelter is located at 901 Poole St.
The Lake Isabella shelter is located at 14891 Highway 178.
The shelters will be open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. this weekend.
