Adult pet adoptions are $25 at Texas SPCA through April 30 – NBC 5 Dallas-Fort Worth

The Texas SPCA is offering the public the opportunity to welcome a new member of the family with its “Showers of Love” event in April.

According to the Texas SPCA, until April 30, all pets over 6 months old are only $25 to be adopted at the Texas SPCA in North Texas.

“The adoptable dogs and cats of the Texas SPCA are ready to shower you with love!” said Kelli Eaves, director of rescue initiatives. “By adopting a pet, you not only save the life of the animal you adopt, but you also save the life of the animal that takes its place at the shelter.”

The Texas SPCA said it provides animals with care and shelter from a wide range of backgrounds, from owner abandonments to seizures of animal cruelty cases.

The organization also provides professional medical care, treatment and assessments to help ensure animals are prepared for adoption, officials said.

According to the Texas SPCA, it’s important to clear space at the shelter during “kitten season,” when shelters are inundated with new felines.

The COVID-19 pandemic has also created a backlog of available pets looking for good homes, the Texas SPCA said.

“There are some absolutely adorable and loving animals in shelters right now,” Eaves said. “We would love to find homes for them all so we can fill our shelters with more animals in need and continue the cycle of adoptions.”

Regular adoption fees are $150 for puppies and kittens 0-6 months old and $75 for adult dogs and cats 6 months and older.

Fees include neutering surgery, age-appropriate vaccinations, heartworm test for dogs six months and older, FIV/FeLV test for cats six months and older, initial prevention against fleas/ticks, heartworm prevention, microchipping, 30 days of Pet Health Insurance provided by PetHealth, 14-day free wellness exam with VCA Animal Hospitals, one week of free training in request from the GoodPup training app, a rabies tag and a free leash or temporary cat carrier.

Adoptable pets can be found online at the Texas SPCA website along with directions to all five Texas SPCA locations.
