Laredo Animal Care Services hosts pet adoption event

LAREDO,Texas(KGNS)- Laredo Animal Care Services is hoping to make Valentine's Day special with a free pet adoption event.

Starting bright and early couples, families, and people looking for a companion went on the search for a new four-legged friend.

The shelter is piloting free pet adoption events in order to reduce the overpopulation and prevent euthanasia rates.

In January, they hosted a sponsored event that resulted in the adoption of over 70 pets.

Laredo Animal Care Services Acting Director Hebert "Beto" Ramirez says they hope to continue doing more of these events.

Adoption fees are typically $137 dollars.

This event took place February 13th and ended at 5 pm.
