Adoptable pets of the week

Posted: Updated:

Lee County Domestic Animal Services will celebrate the “25 Strays of Christmas” with a Gift Giving Tree and a pet photo event to benefit the Animal Care Trust Fund.

The Gift Giving Tree in the adoption lobby at Animal Services is decorated with ornaments featuring adoptable pets and their Christmas wish list. Visitors may pick one up and return it to Animal Services by Dec. 21 to help make the animals’ holiday a little brighter. If a selected pet is lucky enough to find a home for the holiday, the pet will be able to take its gifts to the new home.
