January 26, 2023

On Saturday and Sunday, Animal Care & Protective Services (ACPS) is hitting the road for a two day adoption event.

Families considering a new dog can visit PetSmart (356 Monument Rd. – 32225) from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The adoption fee will be waived at the event.

“‘Never Stray from Hope’ is the message ACPS seeks to convey each day as it serves citizens with animal control, veterinary services, pet adoptions and more,” said Jennifer Walter, ACPS Division Chief.

“If you live in the Arlington area, this is a great opportunity to find a perfect furry companion!”
