October is "Adopt A Shelter Dog" Month, and Chubby Mattress has sponsored all dog adoption fees for the entire month. This includes vaccinations, spay/neuter, microchip and city registration.

Corpus Christi Animal Control, located at 2626 Holly Rd., invites the public to come by and change a shelter dog's life by adopting a new family member.

Adoption hours are Monday-Friday, 1:00-5:30 p.m. and Saturday, 1:00-4:30 p.m. Make sure to ask for a PAAC volunteer.
