HILLSBORO, OR (KPTV) -

A local animal shelter is encouraging people to think about adopting an adult pet.

Through Jan. 4, the adoption fee will be cut in half at Bonnie Hays Small Animal Shelter in Hillsboro for all dogs and cats 5 years of age or older.

"Part of the joy of adopting a pet is giving that animal a second chance at life. That's always meaningful - but it's even more extraordinary for an older pet," said Deborah Wood, manager of animal services. "These are animals that know they've been saved. They will thank you every day for what you've done for them."

The usual adoption price for dogs is $150, but will be reduced to $75 through Jan. 4. The price for cats will be reduced from $50 to $25 during that same time frame. All animals are spayed or neutered, microchipped and current on shots.

The Bonnie Hays Small Animal Shelter is located at 1901 SE 24th Ave. in Hillsboro, on the Tualatin Valley Highway next to Lowe's and Home Depot.
