Those looking for a four-legged companion can look into adopting one next weekend at the Fire & Ice Festival in Rochester.

The Oakland County Animal Control division will have a display and offer rescued pets for adoption near the Rochester Fire Department. 

Bob Gatt from Oakland County Animal Control said this is the first time his division has been involved with the annual festival. The division has 100 dogs and 150 cats and several dogs available for adoption will be present at the festival.

"We have 100 dogs and 150 cats sitting in cages waiting for permanent, loving homes," Gatt said. 

Dog adoptions are $136.50 and cat adoptions are $50.50. and all pets come up-to-date on shots and vet checkups and are spayed or neutered, Gatt said. 

The pet adoption center at the Fire & Ice Festival will run 10 a.m.-5 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 25 and 9 a.m.-5 p.m. on Sunday, Jan. 26 at E. Third and Water streets.
