If you are looking for a great way to start the summer think about adopting a forever friend from DeKalb County Animal Services (DCAS) or Fulton County Animal Services (FCAS) in June. You and your new dog can go hiking together in the mountains, hang out at the pool or lake or just take a nap in the sun. Your new kitty will love to snuggle with you on the back porch as you read the latest best seller.
To save lives and encourage adoptions, both shelters are offering a ‘Dog Days of Summer’ promotion throughout the month of June. All dogs and cats six months and over may be adopted for only $25. All animals will be spayed/neutered, vaccinated and microchipped (a $200 value) for this special rate. Regular screening criteria apply to ensure the animals are going to good homes.
The following information is from the June 9, 2014 Lifeline Press Release:
According to DCAS Shelter Director Susan Feingold, more animals are coming into the shelter than usual. ‘With summer here, we’re seeing twice as many animals coming into the shelter as usual,’ says Susan.
FCAS Director Lara Hudson says that they’re counting on Atlantans to help them save lives. ‘We are asking the community to help us save lives by coming in and adopting a wonderful new family member for only $25.’
