PHOENIX - Looking to adopt a pet? You can get discounted adoption fees at shelters across the Valley starting Sunday.
Maricopa County Animal Care and Control is celebrating Cinco de Mayo by lowering adoption fees across the board until May 31. Cats older than 3 months are free to adopt, and all dogs are just $5 plus a $17 license fee.
Monday marked the first day this year that more than 100 animals were brought in to MCACC shelters across the state. Even higher intakes are expected through the summer months.
If you want to help but can't adopt right now, you can donate to MCACC to help lower the number of homeless animals in Maricopa County.
For adoption hours and locations, visit www.pets.maricopa.gov or call 602-506-7387.
