New Program Benefits Members & Animal Shelter

Vermilion County Farm Bureau has a new member benefit that will cover the adoption fees for one cat or dog each month for the next year at the Vermilion County Animal Shelter.   The fee waiver will be given to the first Associate ‘A+’ or Farming ‘M’ member requesting the offer each month.  That’s a savings of $75 to $125 on the adoption expenses, which includes having pets spayed or neutered, a health exam, first round of vaccinations, and first-year rabies shot and tag.

There is no expiration time during the month – it’s good until the first qualifying member uses the program.  

Pets available for adoption at the shelter changes every day.  Stop by and see all of the adorable cats and dogs.  The Vermilion County Animal Shelter is located at 14775 Catlin Tilton Road (across from the nursing home).  Adoption hours are Monday through Friday – 11:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and 2nd/4th Saturdays – noon to 3:00 p.m.
