HENDERSON (KTNV) — The City of Henderson animal shelter is offering two special pet adoption options in November.

All month long, the adoptable cats and dogs ages 7 years and older will be available for half price:

- Senior Cats: $40 (regularly $80)

- Senior Dogs: $45 (regularly $90)

And any active, reserve and veteran military personnel can adopt a new friend for only $5 from Nov. 9 to Nov. 21 (the Henderson Animal Shelter will be closed on Veterans Day, Nov. 11).

The Animal Care and Control Facility (Animal Shelter) is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Saturday (closed holidays). Anyone who would like to adopt a pet must have their friend chosen before 4:30 p.m.

The Shelter is located at 300 E. Galleria Dr. (east of Boulder Highway, near the Bird Viewing Preserve).

Two Henderson PetSmart locations are also participating with cat adoptions during their regular business hours: 286 W. Lake Mead Pkwy. and 531 N. Stephanie St.

Adoption costs include routine vaccines, spay or neuter surgery if not already done, microchip ID and registration, and rabies tag or Henderson license (depending on where you live). Anyone with pets at home who wishes to adopt must provide current rabies vaccination and spay/neuter paperwork to get licensed, no exceptions.

If pets are already licensed with the City of Henderson, this does not apply.
