This week at the Humane Society of Southern Arizona, adopt an animal for a discounted price.

Tuesday through Friday, the adoption fee will be waived for select animals. Saturday and Sunday, the adoption fee will be half off for the same group of animals. The selected animals that are included are mixed breed dogs that are five months or older and over 25 pounds and all cats that are five months of age or older.

"This time of year, we’re always slammed. It's litter season, so the warmer the temperatures the more dogs and cats are reproducing. It’s a daily occurrence that we get unwanted and abandoned puppies and kittens that are coming to us," said Sara Gromely, the public relations coordinator for the Humane Society of Southern Arizona. "We’re just trying to gear up for another busy summer season to make space for the influx of animals coming through our door."

Gromley also noted that this is that this kind of promotion makes it the perfect time to bring home a furry friend to complete your family, even if you may have been unsure in the past.

"If people are on the fence about, 'is it a good time to find a pet?,' this just really is spurring people into action because we just have such a wide variety of really, really terrific companions that are just bursting with potential but have maybe been overlooked for a while," she said. "This kind of helps highlight some of our long term residents that are wonderful animals."

So, if you are thinking about adopting a pet, now's the perfect time! Head out to the Humane Society this week or weekend to add a new companion to your family.
