Besides walking into your Tyler, Texas home after a day at work and being greeted by the love of your children and your spouse, the only thing better is to be greeted by the love of a four-legged pet. One that is jumping and dancing around and showering you with unconditional love.

If you've never had a pet to care for, you're missing out on a great opportunity. If you've had a pet in the past then you know about the joy that they will bring into your life. A pet doesn't necessarily have to be a dog or cat. A pet could be an iguana, a parrot, a rabbit, a hamster, a snake, or even a fish. Pets bring a feeling of joy along with comfort and relaxation to your life depending upon the pet.

Free pet adoptions in March in Tyler

If it's been a while since you've had a pet or never been a pet owner, it's about time that you become one again. Or even add one to your already existing pet family. Tyler Animal Services is offering free pet adoptions during March as a thank-you for your generous donation.

Adopting a pet is a responsible act and can be quite expensive as you rescue an animal from the shelter. In Tyler, the standard adoption rate for a dog is $120, and for a cat, it's $80. Adoption though is free this month when you donate at least six bags of cat or dog food of 15 pounds or less.

All donated food benefits the Community Pet Food Bank

The Community Pet Food Bank assists families in need who cannot afford to purchase food for their pets. If a family is trying to overcome a financial hurdle, this program would help them out with food so that the family would not have to give up their family pet because they can't afford to feed them.

See the animals available for adoption

Tyler Animal Services has a wide variety of dogs and cats to choose from. All adopted animals are spayed/neutered, microchipped, and vaccinated.

All you have to do is say yes to a cute face, then sit back and take in all the unconditional love that pet is going to bring to you and your family.
