If you want to celebrate Fiesta with a new furry friend, a few San Antonio pet shelters are offering adoption specials this weekend.

The Animal Care Services, Animal Defense League and San Antonio Pets Alive! are hosting specials of up to 60% off. For ACS, people will learn their specific discount when they crack a cascarone.

Here is some more information about those discounts.

Animal Care Services

ACS said the Pawchanga adoption event will include “secret adoption specials” on Saturday and Sunday.

“With the crack of a confetti egg, adopters will learn what discounted adoption fee they will receive, and every new pet parent will leave with ‘pawty supplies’ for their new dog or cat,” a news release states.

Pets that are adopted at ACS are sterilized, microchipped and vaccinated with their first round of shots.

The release adds that people who adopt pets can get training sessions with a certified trainer at the shelter.

ACS’s main location at 4710 State Highway 151 is open from 11 a.m.-5 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays.
