Las Cruces animal adoption opportunities abound on Saturday

Doña Ana County

The Animal Services Center of the Mesilla Valley will facilitate dog, cat, puppy and kitten adoptions Saturday at the shelter on U.S. Highway 70 at Rinconada and two off-site pet adoption events.

9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Farmer’s 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 Center for Spiritual Living at the north end of the mall, across from the site where the dog adoptions take place.

10 a.m. to 3 p.m., adoptions also will be facilitated at PetCo, 3050 E. Lohman Ave.

Adoption fees are $75 for dogs/ puppies and $50 for cats and kittens. The fee includes the first set of vaccinations, spay or 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 or 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.

Daily cat adoptions are available at both PetCo and Pet’s Barn, 1600 S. Valley Drive, both in Las Cruces.

The Animal Services Center of the Mesilla Valley also offers low-cost spay/neuter operations at the rate of $35 for dogs and $25 for cats. Appointments can be scheduled by calling the shelter offices.
