The Lubbock Animal Shelter's free adoption event was a resounding success, with 97 animals adopted, 32 returned to owners, seven animals sent to rescue groups and five finding foster homes.

If you're one of the several people who have since told me, 'I meant to go, but I got busy,' then you're in luck. Luck of the Irish, to be exact.

Lubbock Animal Shelter (3323 SE Loop 289) is hosting 'St. Patty Dog Days,' featuring half-price adoptions from March 19th- 23rd. Adoption fees will be $30, which INCLUDES spay/neuter, vaccinations and a microchip -- an absolutely incredible bargain versus what you would normally pay for those services.

There are still many beautiful cats and dogs to choose from -- many different sizes, colors, breeds etc. Your fur-ever friend is waiting for you!
