If you need a furry friend to keep you company or maybe you want to give a gift to a special someone who needs a companion, then this Friday's pet adoption event is for you!

The Copperas Cove Animal Shelter's monthly free adoption event happens on Friday, May 19th from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM and on Saturday, May 20th from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm at the shelter located at 1601 North First Street/ FM 116.

The adoption fee is waived for all adoptable cats and dogs, but you will have to sign an adoption agreement to have your pet spayed/neutered, vaccinated and micro-chipped. For more information contact the animal shelter at 254-547-5584.
