Adoptions will take place from 8 a.m. to noon on Saturday, May 22, 2010, at both the Farmer’s Market in downtown Las Cruces, and at the Las Cruces Dog Park First Anniversary Celebration on Hermosa Street just south of the Meerscheidt Recreation Center.

From 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, May 22, 2010, adoptions also will be facilitated at PetCo, 3050 E. Lohman, 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 PetCo event, microchipping for pets that already have homes will be available to the public 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.
