Animal shelter doing $1 pet adoptions through end of October

San Marcos Regional Animal Shelter at capacity


SAN MARCOS – The San Marcos Regional Animal Shelter is at capacity and is offering $1 adoption fees on all dogs and cats through the end of October.

The normal adoption fee is $90, but for a limited time, cats and dogs will be adoptable for $1.

In order to adopt a pet, the shelter website states the following requirements must be met:

  • If you rent your home, you must provide a letter from the landlord giving you permission to have a pet on their property. A pet addendum to your lease will not be accepted.
  • If you own your home, you must provide proof of ownership through a closing agreement, mortgage statement, or county tax records. 
  • All people living in the home must meet the pet.
  • If you are adopting a dog, and you or someone who lives in the home owns a dog, that dog must meet the potential adopted dog.

People interested in adopting can browse available pets and fill out an adoption application online.
