El Paso, Texas (KDBC) — If you're thinking that a new pet might be the perfect Christmas gift for a loved one, the El Paso Humane Society might be a good stop.
The shelter will have a special event starting December 16th up until Christmas Eve that will lower the adoption fee for all animals 12 weeks and up to 60-dollars.
But before you head out there are some things they want you to know before buying or gifting a pet.
"This present is going to be a 15 to 20 year commitment so it’s not until the puppy or kitten is not cute anymore you want to make sure that if you're giving it as a present that person really does want it and we're encouraging people to get gift certificates instead the shelter does have that in place." Humane Society coordinator Kandolite Flores said.
For more information about buying a gift certificate and the adoption process contact the Humane Society at 915-532-6971.
