I am so incredibly grateful and proud of all the changes that have happened at our Lubbock Animal Shelter (3323 SE Loop 289). The shelter is doing everything they can to eliminate the euthanization of adoptable animals, including their June "Clear the Shelter" event with free adoptions.

Lubbock Animal Shelter currently has many beautiful dogs, cats, kittens and puppies. Your free adoption also includes vaccinations and a spay or neuter, or a voucher to have the procedure done when the animal is old enough. You can view many of the animals of their Facebook page.

I highly encourage you to spend time with a range of animals before you make a decision. You may have wanted a puppy, but you might leave with a well-behaved and calm senior dog. Or you may have wanted a chihuahua, and end up taking a doberman. My soul dog is not quite what I thought she would be, but now she is my everything.

Cheers to you and your new fur-ever friend!
