Pet adoption events set for Saturday – Las Cruces Sun-News

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.
