The CCSPCA will waive adoption fees for first responders from July 1 to July 13.
Walter Salvari, a spokesman for the Central California Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, said the promotion was designed to show gratitude to local police, sheriff's deputies, firefighters, active military, paramedics and emergency medical technicians.
The CCSPCA is competing in the ASPCA Rachael Ray $100,000 Challenge, a contest in which 50 shelters across the country are trying to break their own records for the months of June, July and August. The CCSPCA hopes to save at least 2,800 animals this summer.
