LAS VEGAS (KTNV)  — The Animal Foundation announces a new dog and cat adoption promotion in celebration of the winter holiday season.

Prospective dog and cat parents are encouraged to stop by the Animal Foundation’s adoption facilities at 655 N. Mojave Rd., near Bonanza Road, beginning Wednesday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. to meet the pets.

The 'Home for the Holidays' no-cost adoption promotion for dogs and cats, six months and older, will run from Dec. 19 until the end of the month and include spay/neuter surgery, microchip, and up-to-date vaccines, according to the foundation.

A city/government fee of $10 will apply for Las Vegas residents.

Also, the nonprofit organization is holding a holiday foster promotion, so that shelter dogs don’t have to spend the holidays alone.

Beginning Tuesday through Dec. 23, the shelter is inviting interested foster families who aren’t traveling for the holidays to pick out a medium or large dog to take home for a winter holiday vacation.

The foundation says it will provide the necessary supplies as long as fosters commit to a full week of care for their holiday shelter pet. If foster families choose to adopt the pet they host, or if they find someone who is interested, the shelter will also waive the adoption fee.
