COLUMBIA, SC (WOLO)– You can adopt a furry friend this holiday season! Columbia Animal Services is hosting a ‘Home for the Holidays’ pet adoption special. Now through December 31, you can adopt a cat or dog for $25. Columbia Animal Services reminds you that bringing pets home is a commitment, and to make sure your home is ready for your new friend when you bring them home.

If you’ve already got your fair share of pets at home, why leave them out of your Christmas cards when you can get your pups picture with Santa!
