The Animal Services Center of the Mesilla Valley will conduct two pet adoption events Saturday, with dogs, puppies, cats and kittens available for new homes.
Adoptions will take place from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Farmers Market in downtown Las Cruces.
From 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., adoptions also will be held at PetCo, 3050 E. Lohman.
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 PetCo 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.
