Pet of the Week: Pepper

The Pine Bluff Animal Control Department announces that pets are available for adoption.

Featured this week is Pepper, a young white male Chihuahua.

“He loves the outdoors and has such a pleasant personality,” said a department spokesman, who described Pepper as a “whipper snapper.”

Adoption costs include:

• $20 Adoption fee paid to Animal Control upon selection of a new pet

• $16 in vaccination and licensing fees

• And $50 to have the pet spayed or neutered with participating veterinarians before taking the animal home, a new state requirement. Animal Control will transport the animal to the veterinarian’s office, where it can be picked up post-surgery.

Details: Call the Animal Control Department at 543-5136, go online to or visit the facility at 901 N. Haverty St. in Martin Luther King Jr. Park.
