Get fit and adopt a new workout buddy!

LAREDO, TX (KGNS) - A local pet store is gearing up for its monthly pet adoption with a different spin.

Every month Petco gets together with local animal shelters to find pets a new home.

Petco has decided to team up with Orange Theory Fitness for its first pet adoption event of the year.

This month’s theme is “Fit for the New Year”, which is promoting getting in shape with a loving pet.

A lot of times, many people who want to get in shape are not motivated because they don’t have a workout buddy.

This weekend, you can stop by the fitness center and pick up a new furry workout buddy.

The event will take place on Saturday, January 12th at 3502 E. Del Mar Boulevard at 3 p.m.

The event is open to the public.
