Shelter Supervisor Patty Mugan discusses animals that are available for adoption in addition to COVID-19 information. The Valencia County Animal Shelter is located at 1209 Highway 314 SW in Los Lunas and takes in about 100 to 150 animals per week.
It costs $92 to adopt dogs and puppies and $72 for cats and kittens. All adoption prices include required vet care.
Currently, the shelter has a litter of three kittens that are about eight weeks old and are now available for adoption. The $72 adoption fee includes their spay/neuter, kitten series of vaccines, rabies vaccine, exam, and microchip. Patty explains the shelter recently received a litter of puppies as well.
