The "Pet for Vets' adoption event on Veterans Day will waive pet adoption fees for veterans who want to adopt a dog or cat from participating shelters.

State Comptroller Susana Mendoza announced the event on Monday at PAWS Chicago. She said the fee waiver will be made possible by several business sponsors.
