Pet adoption Saturday

Posted: Updated:

ALEXANDRIA, La. (KALB News Channel 5) - If you can't make it out to adopt a pet in need during the week, the Alexandria Animal Shelter has you in mind.


It was Saturday Pet Adoption Day at the shelter. A few locals came to check out the dozens of dogs and cats looking for a permanent home. 

The animal control superintendent says, it's always a good day to save a animal's life. 

"This is probably the only opportunity they have to find a home," said Henry Wimbley. "After they are brought here for whatever reason we try to do what we can to have them placed. By having these events on Saturday and featuring them on the website and also working with a lot of rescue groups to try and get them adopted not only in Alexandria but around the state as well."

Saturday Pet Adoption Day is the first Saturday of every month at the Alexandria Animal Shelter.
