Phoenix-area animal shelters seeking families to adopt pets

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX - Maricopa County Animal Care and Control says its shelters are overrun with cats and dogs -- more than 1,000 animals.

In order to help ease the overcrowding, MCACC is launching an adoption special. Normal adoption fees range from $50 to $150, depending on the animal, but MCACC is slashing that starting tomorrow.

The Arizona Humane Society is also dealing with overcrowding of cats and are offering half price adoptions on Saturday and Sunday.
