Metro Animal Care and Control Offers Adoption Discounts

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – While thousands of people braved long lines at stores across middle Tennessee, others flocked to Metro Animal Care and Control where folks there were putting on a black Friday special all their own.

Animal Care and Control had black Friday discounts on pet adoption fees.

Those discounts brought out a lot of folks looking for a new member of their family. Some adoption fees were discounted by nearly half -- from $60 down to $35.

NewsChannel 5 spoke with some people who said they'd much rather be adopting a new pet than getting involved with all the headaches of Black Friday shopping.

"This is much more important to me than some sweater or bottle of perfume that you'd buy some other time in the year anyway," said Kimberly Hawkins, who adopted a cat.

Metro Animal Care and Control was only open for a few hours as part of the Black Friday discounts.  The office will be back open for regular hours on Monday.
