National Animal Shelter & Rescue Appreciation Week: Moreno Valley Animal Shelter to Hold Pet Adoption Event

The City of Moreno Valley will celebrate National Animal Shelter and Rescue Appreciation Week from Tuesday, November 8th, through Saturday, November 12th in honor of the incredible work animal shelters do to help find homeless animals permanent homes, rescue neglected and abused animals, and reunite lost pets with their families.

Help the Moreno Valley Animal Shelter celebrate National Animal Shelter & Rescue Appreciation Week by adopting one of the shelter’s dogs or cats and providing them a loving, forever home.

During National Animal Shelter & Rescue Appreciation Week, prospective pet owners will be able to adopt a new pet for just $5. Adoption fees include spay or neuter surgery, the first round of vaccinations, and a HomeAgain microchip.

Next week’s special $5 adoption promotion includes:

  • All cats and kittens
  • All senior dogs 6 years of age and older
  • All pit-bull and pit-bull mixed dogs

All other dogs will be available for adoption for a $50 fee.

The $5 adoption promotion will run from Tuesday, November 8th through Saturday, November 12th at the Moreno Valley Animal Shelter, 14041 Elsworth Street, Moreno Valley, CA 92553, between 10:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. The Animal Shelter will be closed on Friday, November 11th in observance of Veteran’s Day.

There are an estimated 6–8 million homeless animals that seek refuge each year, but only about half are adopted. More than 60 percent of American households have pets, but fewer than 20 percent of pets were adopted from shelters.

Don’t miss out on this incredible opportunity to add a four-legged member to your family and give a homeless animal a home.

If you are unable to adopt a pet, but know someone who would love to bring home a new dog or cat to love, Adoption Gift Certificates are available at the Moreno Valley Animal Shelter.
