Animal Foundation near capacity, offering dog discounts

LAS VEGAS — The Animal Foundation is nearing capacity in their dog adoption areas and on Thursday will begin a week-long adoption special for all Pit Bulls and dogs listed as "mixes." There are more than 260 dogs available for adoption, 120 of which are Pit Bulls.

The dogs can be adopted for 50 percent off their regular adoption fees July 24 thru 31.

"We currently have hundreds of incredible dogs waiting to be adopted, and more entering our care every single day," said Meghan Scheibe, marketing and public relations manager for The Animal Foundation.

On average, 110 new animals enter the shelter each day over the summer.

"By adopting a shelter pet this coming week, you'll save a life while helping us make room for the hundreds of new pets entering our care every week," added Scheibe. "Our adoption fees include so many add­ons ­­ a spay or neuter surgery, microchip, up­to­date vaccines, and more! When considering adding a pet to your family, please make adoption your first option."

The adoption special is valid at their main campus location, 655 N. Mojave Rd., in Las Vegas, or at the PetSmart Charities Everyday Adoption Center, 286 W. Lake Mead Pkwy., in Henderson.
