Thinking of getting a pet for the family this holiday season? Visit the Peninsula Regional Animal Shelter (PRAS) during their “12 Days of Strays” promotion. From now until December 31st, PRAS is offering $12 off of adoption fees for all pets except pocket pets. Adoption fees range from $5 to $100, but some pets have been sponsored and have reduced adoption fees or no adoption fee at adoption
