According to DCAS Director Susan Feingold, the goal of the promotion is to find homes for dozens of animals.
"There are so many wonderful animals at our shelter that would make the perfect pet for anyone," said Feingold. "We hope this promotion will encourage people to come in, adopt and save lives."
