Pet adoptions 50 percent off today

DOWNEY - The traditional after-Thanksgiving sale known as Black Friday is going to the dogs.SEAACA (Southeast Area Animal Control Authority) will host a "Bark Friday" sale today and all pet adoptions will be 50 percent off. After the discount, dogs can be adopted for $50 and cats for $30. Bunny adoptions will be even cheaper. "Bunnies will be adopted for only $5 on Bark Friday," said Stephanie Webster, assistant kennel supervisor at SEAACA. "Even though it's Bark Friday, we'll have deals on those that meow, purr, chirp... whatever." The adoption fee for dogs and cats includes spaying and neutering, first set of vaccinations, de-worming and a microchip. Leashes and collars will also be on sale. "We're hoping to keep the focus on shelter animals, which too often are forgotten around the holidays," Webster said. SEAACA will open its doors early today at 9 a.m. The animal shelter is at 9777 Seaaca St. in Downey.
