Dog Days of Summer Adoption Special Extended!!!

The The Nancy J. Brua Animal Care Center is extending its Dog Days of Summer Adoption Special through the end of July as the shelter has been stretched to its capacity. Summer is typically a busy time for the Nancy J. Brua Animal Care Center and animal control staff is urging anyone considering turning in their pet to hold off until space at the shelter can be freed up. The shelter is also asking anyone who traps stray cats to turn in to the shelter to also put those activities on hold for now.  Through the end of July, the adoption fee for dogs is reduced from $75 to $50. This includes sterilization, the first set of vaccinations, a complete physical exam, a City dog license, and a microchip implant at no additional charge.  “We have many wonderful dogs to choose from, so it’s the perfect time to adopt or foster,” Animal Control Supervisor Arleen Garcia says. “We are also working with other area shelters and animal rescue organizations to try to free up space, but adoptions are sorely needed.” Foster families must fill out an application, provide proof of rabies vaccinations for any pets in their home, and allow staff to make sure the foster will be a good match in their home. The shelter provides foster families with food and supplies to support the foster animals in their care.  The Nancy J. Brua Animal Care Center is located at 6799 E. Highway 90. It is open Tuesday through Saturday from noon to 5 p.m. It is closed on Sunday and Monday. For more information, call the shelter at (520) 458-4151.
