MERCER COUNTY, W.Va.(WVVA)- The Mercer County Animal Shelter is offering a holiday deal during it's "12 Strays of Christmas" event.
For the next 12 days, you can adopt a dog or cat for $12, and you'll receive a free microchip.
There will also be raffle and anyone that adopts gets entered into a big basket for a prize.
A special Christmas present, 12 dogs come with a gift card, which will be revealed when a customer adopts the dog.
Stacy Harman is the Director for the shelter and hopes to provide each of the animals the biggest Christmas gift of them all, "A forever home."
"I've been working here for seven years and my dream has always been to see every cage empty before Christmas," said Harman. "It hasn't happened yet."
Harman is asking anyone interested in adopting a dog or cat to ensure they're financially ready and stable before taking home an animal.
The shelter is open Tuesday-Saturday from noon until 6 p.m.
