Many places offer Senior discounts, but only one place in Lubbock is offering a deep discount on unconditional love- The Lubbock Animal Shelter (3323 SE Loop 289).

Animal adoption at LAS is only $60 for everyone- a bargain considering it covers, "spay/neuter, first set of vaccinations, microchip implant and City ID/registration tag".

But for persons 60 years or older, adoption is only $10. Many studies have concluded that companion animals are wonderful for both the mental and physical health of seniors.

Don't want to deal with a rambunctious puppy? Senior animals make wonderful and usually calm pets.

For more information about this program or any City related service, call 311. LAS hours of operation are Monday – Friday: 8 am to 6 pm. Saturday: 12 pm to 4 pm.
