The Silicon Valley Animal Control Authority (SVACA) joined a handful of Silicon Valley animal shelters as part of an adoption effort during the holiday season.
During the month of December, all adult pet adoptions from the center are $12. The goal for the month is to have 1,200 pets adopted.
Other animal shelters participating include the Humane Society Silicon Valley, San Jose Animal Care Center, Palo Alto Animal Services, Santa Clara County Animal Shelter and Town Cats of Morgan Hill. Rescues from Cupertino can be found at San Jose Animal Care with whom the city has a contract with.
All the shelters get overwhelmed with pets this time of year, and the six shelters are teaming up to help the pets find homes, according to the San Jose Animal Care Center.
All the pets available for adoption can be seen at www.sheltersfirst.org.
As of Wednesday morning, 21 pets have been adopted through the initiative, according to the website.
