A Tampa Bay animal shelter is packed to capacity and to combat an overcrowding issue they announced a special discount on adoption rates.

The Hillsborough County Pet Resource Center is looking to find forever home to all of their furry friends. You might be finding your best friend this weekend.

On Saturday, May 4, the price to adopt a “ready-to-go” dog will be $4. County officials are calling the offer a “Star Wars-themed May the 4th Be With You special.”

On Sunday, May 5, adoptable cats will only cost $5 to adopt for a “Cinco de Meow-o adoption event.”

“Ready-to-go” means they can go home with you immediately. Usually these pets are $20. Dogs and cats are registered, vaccinated, microchipped, and spayed before adoption.

According to Fox 13 News, The Pet Resource Center has 270 dogs, which puts the shelter at 110 percent capacity. They also have 116 cats, which is at 74 percent capacity within the shelter.

The Pet Resource Center is located at 440 N. Falkenburg Road and is open from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday.
