ASCMV Off-Site Pet Adoption Events and Volunteer Opportunities

Animal Services Center of the Mesilla Valley staff and volunteers will facilitate dog, cat, puppy and kitten adoptions this Saturday, May 30th. In addition to adoptions from the shelter site, adoptions also will take place at two off-site pet adoption events.

  • From 8:30 a.m. to noon, adoptions will take place at the Farmer’s Market in downtown Las Cruces. Dogs available for adoption will be located at the north end of the mall. Cats can be adopted from the offices of the Center for Spiritual Living at the north end of the mall, across from the site where the dog adoptions take place.
  • From 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., adoptions also will be facilitated at PetCo, 3050 E. Lohman, also in Las Cruces.

Adoption fees are $75 for dogs/ puppies and $50 for cats/kittens. The fee includes the first set of vaccinations, spay/neuter and microchip.

At the PetCo event, microchipping for pets that already have homes will be available to the public for $20, and city pet licenses will be available to neutered pets for $5 each. Licenses for unneutered pets are $25 each. Proof of spay/neuter is required before a $5 license will be issued.
