All across Tennessee, animal adoption centers are celebrating Tennessee Week for the Animals.
The Pet Placement Center, at 5975 Dayton Blvd., will host a half-price adoption event this week, Wednesday through Saturday, from 10 a.m.-5 p.m.
A special adoption rate will be offered on all dogs and cats over six months, at $45 for a dog and $20 for a cat. Every pet leaves spayed or neutered, microchipped, heartworm negative (dogs), Feline Leukemia/FIV negative (cats), updated on vaccinations, dewormed and treated with flea and heartworm preventative.
Officials said, "All we ask for in return is a bag of Purina ONE dog or cat food to help us feed all these hungry mouths. You can even select the dog or cat you want to meet before visiting. All of our adoptable pets are listed on our website. Learn everything we know about each one before your visit. You can also see their glamour shots. Our website is updated daily."
