Young Williams Animal Shelter began offering special deals on pets Friday. You can adopt senior pets for $10, adult pets for $25 and kittens and puppies for $50.

The deals run through next Friday, which is National Pet day.

While many people may have their eyes on the little guys, one coordinator says there's benefits to getting an older animal.

"They're already through that mischief stage. You know a lot of them already know how to behave in houses; you don't have to worry about missing shoes and things getting chewed up. You know we have a lot of great dogs that are already house trained," said Candice Hinkle, Young Williams development coordinator.

You can adopt more than just dogs and cats at Young Williams. There are also bunnies, mice and guinea pigs among other animals.
