Hillsborough Animal Services marks Veterans Day with special event
Hillsborough County Animal Services plans to honor those who serve the country and encourage pet adoptions this Veterans Day. From 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday, Animal Services will offer half-priced pet adoptions to all active or retired military members. Adoption fees include spaying/neutering, vaccinations, microchip, Hillsborough County registration tag, and a veterinary health check. All Veterans Day adopters during the Pets For Vets event, both military and civilian, will receive a patriotic pet goodie bag, and all felines one year or older may be adopted for just $20. Children can sign a special greeting card and stop by a coloring table in the shelter's main lobby. A U.S. Army Vietnam veteran who volunteers for Animal Services will send the card, art and letters of support from children to soldiers overseas.There will be no animal turn-ins on Monday.
