The Animal Services Center of the Mesilla Valley will conduct two pet adoption events on Saturday, with dogs, puppies, cats and kittens available for adoption.
Adoptions will take place from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Farmers Market in downtown Las Cruces. Dogs available for adoption will be located at the north end of the mall. Cats can be adopted from the offices of the Southwest Environmental Center just north of the Rio Grande Theatre.
From 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., adoptions also will be held at Pet’s Barn, 1600 S. Valley Drive, in Las Cruces.
Adoption fees are $75 for dogs/ puppies and $50 for cats/kittens. The fee includes the first set of vaccinations, spay/neuter and microchip.
At the Pet’s Barn event, microchipping for pets that already have homes will be available for $20, and city pet licenses will be available to neutered pets for $5 each. Licenses for unneutered pets are $25 each. Proof of spay/neuter is required before a $5 license will be issued. Pet owners also must bring current proof of rabies vaccination for each animal to be licensed.
The Animal Services Center of the Mesilla Valley also offers low-cost spay/neuter operations at the rate of $35 for dogs and $25 for cats. Appointments can be scheduled by calling the shelter offices at (575) 382-0018.
