“We hope this adoption event will help our pets find a forever home for the holidays,” said Animal Control Director Graham Price. “If you are looking for a new pet, consider adoption. We have some great cats and dogs that would love to meet you.”

All animals that leave the shelter are spayed, neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped. This adoption event only applies to pets at the shelter, not for cats located at PetSmart locations.
