Adopt UFOs (cats, dogs) for $15 or less this weekend at Animal Care Services

Unquestionably Furry Occupants available for adoption in San Antonio

SAN ANTONIO – City of San Antonio Animal Care Services is offering an adoption special for UFOs (Unquestionably Furry Occupants).

Dogs will be available for adoption for just $15, and cat adoption fees will drop to just $5 Friday through Sunday.

The adopt-a-thon is spoofing the "Storm Area 51" event, which went viral on social media for jokingly urging people to take over the military facility in Nevada where conspiracy theorists say aliens and their spaceships are held.

"We're confirming the rumors that have been around for years. Shelter pets are out of this world," said ACS live-release manager Bethany Colonnese.

All pets are available on a first-come, first-served basis and will have already been vaccinated, dewormed, sterilized, and implanted with a microchip.
