MANATEE -- Manatee County Animal Services are offering dogs and cats at a deeply discounted $20 plus license fees on Saturday and Sunday.
Dogs are normally $80 and cats are normally $40 plus the $15 pet license fee for Manatee residents, according to a release.
On adoption, pets receive a checkup, are spayed or neutered, vaccinated and micro-chipped. Each adoption also comes with 30-day risk-free pet insurance.
"We had our best adoption event ever on Nov. 29, the day-after-Black-Friday sale," said Animal Services Volunteer Coordinator Samantha Wolfe. "We're going to keep that good momentum moving and we're going to do all we can to match as many families with pets as possible this weekend."
The Animal Services shelter at 305 25th Street W. in Palmetto will be open Saturday, Dec. 13, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Sunday, Dec. 14 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
