The city of Santa Clarita, in collaboration with the Castaic Animal Care Center, is inviting residents to a pet adoption event just in time for Valentine’s Day.
Residents can meet cats and dogs that are currently available for adoption from the center during the event, scheduled 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at the Mitchell River House (16950 Lost Canyon Road).
As an incentive to adopt, the city will waive all adoption fees for residents who adopt an animal at the event.
Residents can expect to meet a variety of animals and have the opportunity to walk, play and get to know them before choosing to adopt. Throughout the week, the city’s social media pages will also feature animals that are ready to find their “fur-ever” homes. If you would like to view available animals online, residents can also visit animalcare.lacounty.gov.
Those interested in adopting at Pet Adoption Day will be responsible for paying the license fee, which is typically $20 for dogs and $5 for cats, with all other fees covered by the city.
