Clovis will host a free pet adoption event | KAMR

CLOVIS, NM (KAMR/KCIT) – The City of Clovis has announced its partnership with the High Plains Humane Society and the Best Friends Animal Society for an animal adoption weekend from 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Friday and on Saturdays at the Clovis Animal Shelter.

The event, located at 2203 E. Brady, will be part of National Adoption Week. According to the city, the organization is working to save the lives of dogs and cats in US shelters by 2025.

“The town is thrilled to partner with the Best Friends Animal Society and the High Plains Humane Society
during National Adoption Weekend,” said Mayor Mike Morris. “Our goal for promotion is to
encourage area residents to come to the shelter and provide a permanent home for animals in the
ease.”

The Best Friends Society released data detailing the rise in animal consumption as well as the decline in pet adoptions in the United States, and said shelters are encouraging individuals to adopt and not to buy. their next pet to help make a difference.

“There is a growing shelter crisis across the country and the animal welfare community will not sit still.
and let innocent pets die,” said Julie Castle, CEO of Best Friends Animal Society. “In fact, it’s quite the
opposite. We join forces with our extensive network of shelters and rescues across the country to welcome
our third National Adoption Weekend since May to get people out and adopting.

According to the City, it has become difficult in recent years to adopt due to understaffing, limited reception hours and reduced adoption events.

Adoption will be free to the public at the event and you can visit the High Plains Humane Society Facebook page to learn more about the pet adoption process.
