Money has been waiting at the shelter for his true love to scoop him up since October. He'd enjoy the company of another calm four-legged friend, or as the only love of your life. Visit him at the main shelter, 4900 Martin St. ID No. A144262252.

There is nothing more important than having a family love you. Fort Worth shelter pets are deserving of that forever love. Nearly 500 dogs and cats, kittens and puppies are in the shelter, and each of them is waiting to meet you during the PetSmart Charities National Adoption Weekend, Feb. 22-24.

The Fort Worth Animal Shelter is committed to matching wonderful, adoptable pets with loving families. Staff will be at all three adoption locations over the weekend to help families find the right pet.

Adoption fees are reduced to $10 during this event. Fees include an initial medical examination, vaccinations, micro-chip and spay/neuter services. Adopters also receive a coupon book and a complimentary bag of pet food.

Check out all three adoption locations:

  • Chuck Silcox Animal Care & Adoption Center, 4900 Martin St. (open Friday-Sunday).
  • PetSmart Adoption Center Hulen, 4800 S.W. Loop 820 (I-20 at Hulen).
  • PetSmart Adoption Center Alliance, 2901 Texas Sage Trail (I-35W at Heritage Trace).
