Pretty soon, the kids will be out of school and there will be more time to spend with family. Why not add a four-legged friend to your home this summer?

During the entire month of June, the Bullhead City Animal Care and Welfare shelter is hosting a “Summer Lovin – Empty the Shelter” program, sponsored by Swanty’s of Bullhead City.

Interested pet owners will receive a discounted adoption price of just $30! (All dogs and cats will have to be spay/neutered and vaccinated against rabies by a veterinarian before going home).

Please also help make the shelter bright and colorful this summer. Visit and click on the Animal Care and Welfare page to print out some coloring pages and drop them off to be displayed at the shelter. The coloring sheets can also be picked up from the shelter.

And, anyone who adopts or donates will be entered into a raffle to win a new Beach Cruiser bicycle and a gift basket, courtesy of the Mohave Valley Daily News! Please call (928) 763-6000 for more information.

The Animal Care and Welfare shelter is located at 2270 Trane Road. Hours are Monday – Friday, 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. close on Wednesdays.
