ABILENE, Texas - Are you looking for a cute, cuddly friend to warm you up this winter?
You're in luck. The Abilene Animal Shelter is ten animals away from beating last December's adoption record.
"We're trying to break a record that goes all the way through the first of Jan.," Animal Services Manager Aaron Vannoy said. "We'll keep are sale going through then."
The animal shelter has a 50% off adoption sale, which continues through this week.
The cost: $20 for any animal. You'll also receive a $20 rebate after the animal is spayed or neutered.
