SHELTER OFFERS REDUCED CINCO DE MAYO ADOPTION RATE

For three days, anyone looking to adopt a pet from the Animal Services Center of the Mesilla Valley can take advantage of a special Cinco de Mayo discount.

From May 4-6, the adoption fee for dogs and cats will be $18.62, a nod to the Mexican army’s historic victory at the Battle of Puebla in 1862. Adoption fees are usually $75 for dogs/puppies and $50 for cats/kittens. The fee includes the first set of vaccinations, spay/neuter and microchip.

The Animal Services Center of the Mesilla Valley is open for adoptions Friday, May 4 from 12-6 p.m. and from 12-5 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday at 3551 Bataan Memorial West. Pets adopted during the off-site adoption fair at the Farmer’s Market can also get the Cinco de Mayo discount.

For more information, contact the shelter directly, (575) 382-0018.
