Free pet adoptions are from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. today at the Leander Adoption Center of Texas Humane Heroes.

The nonprofit organization was formed by the merger of Cen-Tex Humane Society Second Chance Adoption Shelter and the Humane Society of Williamson County.

More than 200 kittens, cats, puppies and dogs are available for adoption.

In addition to free adoption fees, the event will include a variety of children’s activities, food vendors, pet vendors and more for the community to enjoy.

All adoptable animals are spayed/neutered, current on vaccinations, microchipped, tested and given a free initial vet visit and night of boarding, a free bag of starter food, and other pet-related coupons and information. For more information, go to
