Palm Valley waiving adoption and reclaiming fees


EDINBURG, Texas – For the New Year’s Eve holiday, the Palm Valley Animal shelter is encouraging residents to adopt and help an animal find their forever homes.

For the next couple of days, the Palm Valley Animal Center will be waiving both adoption fees and reclaiming fees.

Palm Valley Animal Center officials say they are always at a risk for overcrowding because the intake doesn’t stop, including on the holidays.

Microchipping will also be available for $10 through New Year’s Eve.

“We want to get these animals out to their forever homes as soon as possible. You know we wish we could find them all homes overnight so were just hoping to get these guys out of a shelter environment and into a loving home as soon as possible,” said Luis Quintanilla a shelter manager at the Palm Valley Animal Center.

The center is also encouraging fostering and volunteering.
