AUSTIN -- Hoping to bring a new pet home for the holidays? Now you can do it for only $20.
The Austin Animal Center is offering $20 pet adoption specials for dogs and cats through Jan. 5. The center says the pets will be spayed or neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. Usually that costs about $200 with an adoption fee of $75.
A kick-off event will be held at the AAC from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Dec. 7. The event will include photos with Santa, treats, games, prizes and more.
