The Alice Animal Control shelter has pets available for adoption.

Local residents in need of a little company while spending more time at-home, might want consider helping the community and providing a loving home for an animal in need.

A current pitbull mix is up for adoption at the Alice Animal Kennel on 1150 Commerce Road.

The shelter's staff is diligent about cleaning procedures and routine sanitizing for the animals and provides safety measures to keep the animals, visitors and staff safe during the pandemic, according to Lead Officer Jose (Chema) Martinez.

All animals adopted through the city should be sterilized 45 days after adoption. A voucher can be picked up from People Assisting Animal Control that would give a discount on the spay and neutering of the animal.

The adoption fee is $25.
