The City of Henderson Animal Care and Control Facility will again participate in “Clear the Shelters,” a nationwide effort to find all shelter pets loving forever homes.

Cat, dog and rabbit adoptions will be half price, with an additional 50 percent discount for Henderson residents (bring state I.D.):

Adoption costs include routine vaccines, spay or neuter surgery if not already done, microchip ID and registration, and rabies tag or Henderson license. Pet owners wishing to adopt must provide current rabies vaccination and spay/neuter paperwork to get licensed. (This does not apply if pets are already licensed with the city).

Adoptions end at 4:30 p.m., so anyone wishing to adopt should choose their pet before that time.
