The Animal Services Center of the Mesilla Valley will conduct two off-site pet adoption events on Saturday.
Available for adoption will be dogs, puppies, cats and kittens 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 facilitated at PetCo, 3050 E. Lohman Ave.
Adoption fees are $75 for dogs and $50 for cats. The fee includes the first set of vaccinations, spaying or neutering and microchipping.
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 alteration 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.
