Mesquite, TX – December 11, 2017 - Mesquite Animal Services, 1650 Gross Road, will be open December 22 and 23 from 1 - 5:30 p.m. for adoptions and reclaims only. Shelter staff elected to remain open in order to help more dogs and cats find homes for the holidays. Shelter Manager Jeanne Saadi said, “Our staff are passionate about finding good homes for the pets in our care all year long, but it really tugged on their heartstrings to think that many of these great dogs and cats would spend Christmas in the shelter.”
To help motivate families to adopt, the shelter is offering fun adoption specials all month long. From December 14 -16, all adoptions will be 25 percent off. On December 18 and 19, any animal wearing a red or green bandana will be 50 percent off; and from December 20 - 23, cat or dog kennels marked with a Santa Claus may be adopted for $25, while animals in kennels marked with a Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer may be adopted at 25 percent off. Regular adoption fees are $100 for dogs and $80 for cats. Fees include sterilization, vaccinations and microchipping.
“To make things easier and help get pets home even faster,” Saadi said, “we will be sending many of our adoptable pets off to be spayed or neutered before they are adopted. This means, if you adopt one of those cats or dogs, you can take them home right away.”
