Adopt a furry best friend to celebrate Cinco De Mayo
EL PASO, Texas —
Spring is a very busy season for local animal shelters. In an effort to help save lives many host adoption promotions throughout the year.
This weekend the El Paso Animal services is hosting an adoption event for Cinco De Mayo.
Last weekend 243 animals were adopted during a $1 adoption promotion event and shelter leaders told KFOX14 it’s the most adoptions they've had during a promotion.
Hosting these adoption promotions and having so many animals adopted is a big help as they see more animals coming into the shelter daily during spring and summer months.
If you are interested in adoption and missed the event not to worry they're having a Cinco De Mayo adoption promotion starting this Friday through Sunday.
All adoptions will be just $5 and include microchip, city registration, spay/neuter surgery and up to date vaccinations.
Although, adoption fees are low potential adopters need to plan ahead for annual cost and keep in mind that pets are a life time commitment. According to Pet Finder on average a pet can cost between $300 to $2,000 annually.
