Keep the holidays happy and safe for your pets
The holidays are in full swing. Holidays bring special cards, gifts decorated with ribbons, tinsel or yarn, and special decorations like Christmas trees. Unfortunately, animals appreciate these items, as well -- and many of them can cause serious damage.
Find love on Hitchcock Road for only $25
Monterey County Animal Services and the City of Salinas Animal Services have reduced adoption fees to only $25 for cats and dogs! This reduction is due to the support of Friends of Community Animal Services (FoCAS) and is to help get shelter pets into homes this holiday season.
