A local mall is making it easier to unite North Texans with their forever pets and help clear the shelters.
The SPCA of Texas is once again opening a pet adoption station at NorthPark Center mall during the holiday shopping season.
The Home for the Holidays event, which enters its 31st year on Black Friday, brings together families and pets in need of homes.
The Holidays Adoption Pavilion is located on level one of the mall between Macy's and Dillard's. It's open Thursdays through Sundays, noon to 6 p.m. through Dec. 23. SPCA merchandise is also available seven days a week from noon to 6 p.m.
From gift guides to local events, we're here to help you celebrate in style.
Regular adoptions are $150 for puppies and kittens aged 0-6 months and $75 for adult dogs and cats aged 6 months or older.
The adoption fee includes:
- Spay/neuter surgery
- Age-appropriate vaccinations
- Heartworm test for dogs six months and older and a FIV/FeLV test for cats 4 months and older
