Fulton County Animal Services (FCAS) is celebrating “the tail end of summer” with free adoptions this month. Throughout the month of August adoption fees are waived for all dogs (adults and puppies) and for cats (adults and kittens). The normal adoption fees are $85 for dogs and $65 for cats. All animals will be spayed/neutered, vaccinated and microchipped for this special rate. Regular screening criteria apply to ensure the animals are going to good homes.
The following information is from the July 31, 2014 FCAS Press Release:
FCAS Director Lara Hudson is optimistic that the community will support this promotion. ‘With 30 plus animals entering the shelter daily, we urgently need public support to help us save lives, and we're hopeful that the public will step up and adopt from us’ says Lara.

The dog pictured above is Starlet. Here is a message from Starlet from the FCAS website:
My name is Starlet! Maybe I’m not in Hollywood, but I should be. I would steal the show. Everyone here adores me. They say I’m perfect. I can be a little choosy about my canine friends and cannot go to a house with small fluffy dogs or cats. I am around 3 years young. I’ve been spayed, vaccinated and microchipped. Come and see me today. I'M HOUSETRAINED AND NON-DESTRUCTIVE! I live in one of the offices at the shelter.
