MEMPHIS, TN -

(WMC-TV) – Have you thought about opening up your heart and your home to a sweet animal in need this holiday season?

For the second year, Action News 5 is teaming up with the Humane Society of Memphis & Shelby County to bring you "The 12 Strays of Christmas."

During the 12 Strays of Christmas, you will meet 12 animals in need of homes this holiday season. We will introduce you to a new pet each day through December 22. And each pet featured in the "12 Strays of Christmas" comes with a very special adoption fee of just $12, which includes vaccination shots, spaying/neutering, and microchipping.

Meet Como

Como is a 5-year-old black lab mix who was transferred to the Humane Society of Memphis & Shelby County from another shelter in April 2013.  He had some issues with the ligaments in both of his back legs and had to have surgery done on both knees. 

Como lived in a foster home with the humane society's executive director where he had to be walked with a sling to use the bathroom.  But now, he is able to get around on his own without any help. He will always have a bit of a limp and will most likely be on pain management medication for the rest of his life.

That does not hold Como back at all. He loves to be around people and other dogs and is even house-trained. He is a staff favorite at the humane society and they would love for him to find happiness in his forever home.

If you would like to visit Como, stop by the Humane Society of Memphis & Shelby County, located at 935 Farm Road.

The $12 adoption fee includes the following:

* Spay/neuter surgery

* Age appropriate vaccines

* Microchip for permanent identification
