Aries, a German Shepherd and Belgian Malinois mix, is one of the dogs available for adoption.

The Nancy J. Brua Animal Care Center has reached its capacity for dogs and will offer reduced fees for dog adoptions through August 31 in hopes of freeing up space and finding loving homes for the many canines that have arrived at the shelter.

Effective today, the dog adoption fee will be reduced from $75 to $50 through August 31. The adoption fee includes sterilization, the first set of vaccinations, a complete physical exam, a City pet license, and a microchip implant.

“While we’ve had success getting many dogs adopted out in recent months, we continue to receive numerous canines this summer and once again have a heightened need to find them homes as soon as possible,” says Arleen Garcia, animal control supervisor. “Please stop by our facility to meet some of our wonderful dogs and consider acting now if you’ve been thinking of adding a furry friend to your family.”

The Nancy J. Brua Animal Care Center is open Tuesday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on Saturday from noon to 5 p.m. It’s closed on Sunday, Monday, and holidays. It’s located at 6799 E. Highway 90. For more information, call (520) 458-4151.
