Adopting a pet from Tyler Animal Control and Shelter in Tyler, Texas has gotten a little more affordable during the month of October because they are waiving all adoption fees on dogs and cats with a simple donation for Samaritan's Purse Operation Christmas Child.

The Tyler Animal Control and Shelter facility currently has more than 30 dogs and cats available for adoption.

With a donation of twelve toys for Operation Christmas Child, Tyler Animal Control and Shelter will be waiving the standard dog adoption fee of $120 and $80 adoption fee for a cat. When you adopt an animal from the shelter, it will be vaccinated, spayed or neutered, and microchipped.

What is Operation Christmas Child?
