The animal foundation is especially pushing pit bull and Chihuahua adoptions and offering discounted adoption fees of just $40 for those two breeds.

Save a life week kicked off on Wednesday and so far hundreds of animals have found new homes. But many more are in need with an average of 110 new animals being brought in every day.

People looking to adopt are encouraged to come out, walk the dogs, pay with them and see if they're a good fit.

The animal shelter is teaming up with Friendly Ford for their Paws for a Cause adoption event on Saturday. so come out and check out some of these animals and receive a free microchip for your pet.
