Sometimes you can get a Subway footlong sandwich for $5. This weekend you can get a whole pet, given they’re a foot long, for the exact same price.

The Austin Animal Center is hosting a “$5 footlong” promotion for all available pets that measure “12 inches or more, from shoulders to base of the tail.”

That’s a lifetime companion for the price of a sandwich. According to a press release for the event, the normal adoption fee is $75. 

The promotion will be held Friday through Sunday. 

Don’t forget your ruler.
