SAN ANTONIO -

San Antonio Animal Care Services will take part in a nationwide awareness campaign Thursday to encourage pet adoptions. 

"Remember Me Thursday" will take place in shelters throughout the world including ACS.

Dog adoptions will be $40 all day Thursday and cat adoptions are $15. All pets are sterilized, vaccinated, de-wormed, licensed and micro-chipped.

ACS officials say they have more than 7,000 adoptions so far this fiscal year, smashing last year's record of 6,110.
