Local animal shelters hosting virtual adoptions

Local News

EDINBURG, Texas – Adoptions at Palm Valley Animal Society are now virtual, and not just here in the Rio Grande Valley.

The Best Friends and Petco Foundation is helping with a national virtual adoption. This will help with awards for shelters that have the most adoptions, and are also sponsoring adoption fees. 

“They want to help us get where we need to be. They are putting this on nationally, they are also partnering with HBO Max. They are the ones sponsoring the event, reaching out to local shelters, and helping them set it up.” said Julian Whitacre, development coordinator.

Currently, the Palm Valley Animal Society is offering regular virtual adoptions and curbside pickup.

The national virtual adoption will continue into Sunday.
