Free adoptions at Macon-Bibb animal control Dec. 14 and 15

Thanks to the efforts of two intrepid Mercer University students, all adoptions from Macon-Bibb animal control are free today and Saturday, Dec. 15. You still have to pay the $50 refundable deposit to ensure you have your new pet spayed or neutered, but the adoption fee is covered for these two days only.

The original "Super Adopt-A-Thon" had slashed adoption fees to half price ($40), but thanks to the students, who held a fundraiser recently, that $40 fee is taken care of for you.

Many dogs, cats, kittens and puppies are waiting at the facility for someone to take them home. What a great Christmas you will have, knowing you have saved one of these precious lives.

The animal control facility is open from 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. today and Saturday, so you need to hurry to take advantage of this special event.

To view the dogs and cats available, either go to the county's website or see the photo album on Facebook.

Macon-Bibb animal control is extremely high-kill, and does not keep animals very long, even pregnant mothers or babies. Any animal of any age turned in by its owner may be killed immediately. Strays picked up by animal control officers normally have a 7-day waiting period before they die, but sick, injured or animals deemed aggressive may be put down sooner.

Macon-Bibb animal control is at 1010 Eleventh Street, off Lower Poplar.
