Ka - Local military members spent Saturday afternoon looking for a new family member.
In honor of Armed Forces weekend, Kansas City Pet Project is offering half price adoptions during Pets for Vets.
The discounted deal is open to any military family; active duty, reserve, National Guard or veteran.
"It's great for them to have a companion when they come home, Tori Fugate, with the KC Pet Project, said. “So this is a great opportunity for those who have served recently, if they're looking to adopt, we really encourage them to come out and see if they can find a new best friend."
The pets for vets event continues Sunday from noon to 5 p.m.
The Kansas City Pet Project is located near the Stadiums at 4400 Raytown Road in Kansas City, Mo.

The cooler weather has many people and their pets spending more time indoors. That's why it's important to continue flea and tick treatments so the pest don't make it inside too.
