Animal lovers take part in pet adoption event

LAREDO, TX (KGNS) - Several pets were given the opportunity to find a home over the weekend.

On Saturday, Critter Care along with the Laredo Animal Care Service held its first adoption event of the year.

Community members went out to enjoy some fun activities while also exploring all the benefits of adopting a four-legged friend.

The adoption was free of charge and participants got a chance to spend some time with the animals to see which ones they could take home.

Dr. Sandra Leyendecker says the city has a problem with the stray pet population. As a result, they pick them up to try to find homes for them.
