Columbia running animal adoption special

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - The City of Columbia is celebrating Christmas in July with some promotions on pet adoption.

Columbia Animal Services' Christmas in July adoption special wraps up on Saturday. All pets are eligible, and adoption fees are $25. As a bonus, new pet owners can take a free photo with Santa Claus.

All animals are spayed or neutered, microchipped, vaccinated and wormed. Dogs are tested for heartworms, and cats are tested for feline leukemia.
