Posted Date: 8/1/2014

GRAND PRAIRIE— School’s out, the sun is shining and summer is in full swing. You’ve got nothing to do and nowhere to go…ah, the dog days of summer are upon us.

Add a little excitement into these lazy days with a new pet! Prairie Paws Adoption Center, 2222 W. Warrior Trail, will run a Dog Days of Summer adoption special throughout the month of August and will offer $20 adoptions every day that it is hotter than 100 degrees. There’s nothing cooler than rescuing a loveable pet from the shelter!

Regular price adoptions are $70. This fee includes a microchip, sterilization, rabies vaccination, flea treatment, the 5-in-1 and kennel cough vaccinations for dogs and the 3-in-1 FVRCP vaccination for cats. All adult dogs will be heartworm tested. Those wishing to adopt must complete an application and be approved before receiving their pets. Up to two pets per household may be adopted. This offer is valid only for new adoptions.

The Prairie Paws Animal Shelter’s operating hours are:

Closed Sunday and Monday
Tuesday-Friday: 10 a.m. – 6 p.m.
Saturday: 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. (closed noon – 1 p.m.)
