Friday, May 26 - Monday, May 29 at the Austin Animal Center.
All adoption fees will be waived Friday, May 26, through Monday, May 29, at the Austin Animal Center.
With more than 500 cats, dogs and small animals to choose from, there are pets of all ages to fit every lifestyle, and all of them are hoping to find loving families this holiday weekend.
“Looking for kittens or puppies? We’ve got them," said Lee Ann Shenefiel, Austin Animal Center Interim Chief. "We also have more than 50 senior pets who desperately need lifesavers. This weekend, as part of our thank you to the community, all adoption fees will be waived."
The shelter is currently at capacity, which means every kennel is being used. A big adoption weekend will help alleviate the stress of limited space, Shenefiel said. Adoption fees include spay/neuter, vaccines, a microchip and tags -- a value of more than $300.
“This is one of the best times of year to adopt, because we have such a wide variety of pets available,” she said.
The Austin Animal Center is located at 7201 Levander Loop and is open daily 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
