INDIANAPOLIS — Hundreds of dogs and cats spent the holidays being loved on by their new families after two successful promotions at the Indianapolis Animal Care Services, but there are still hundreds of animals that would love to find a home for the new year.

IACS is waiving all adoption fees for the more than 800 animals left in their care, through January 10.

Two promotions, "12 Days of Strays" and "Pawlidays" led to 480 adoptions at IACS between December 1 and December 27.
