Bring a Buddy, Get a Buddy at Nancy J. Brua Animal Care Center

SIERRA VISTA, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Looking for a 'fur'ever friend and you live in the Sierra Vista area?  Here is an event you need to know about. 

The Nancy J. Brua Animal Care Center will offer discounted adoption fees for dogs in April, with the hope of finding homes for a recent increase of canines that has stretched the facility near its capacity.

In April, the regular dog adoption fee will drop from $75 to $50. As an added bonus, the center will offer “Bring a Buddy, Get a Buddy” two-for-one deal. Anyone who brings a friend to the animal shelter can qualify for two dog adoptions for $75. That means you and a friend could each walk away with a new companion for just shy of $38 each. 

“We don’t want to be in a position where we need to euthanize animals due to a lack of space,” says Arleen Garcia, animal control supervisor, in a recent release. “One recent case involving 14 dogs, combined with a variety of other new arrivals, has put us in a tight spot right now. This does make it a great time for residents thinking of adopting a dog, as we have a big variety of lovable canines looking for homes.”

The dog adoption fee includes sterilization, the first set of vaccinations, a complete physical exam, a dog license, and a microchip implant. 

For more information please call the Nancy J. Brua Animal Care Center at (520) 458-4151.

The Nancy J Brua Animal Care Center is located at 6799 E. Highway 90 and is open Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.
