DeKalb County Animal Services (DCAS) is celebrating “the tail end of summer” with special adoption fees this month. Throughout the month of August adoption fees are reduced to only $20 for dogs (adults and puppies) and $10 for cats (adults and kittens). The normal adoption fees are $95 for dogs and $75 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 DCAS Press Release:
DCAS Shelter Director Susan Feingold thinks the promotion will be an incentive to get the public into the shelters. ‘By waiving adoption fees we hope to see a record number of people coming into the shelter and giving our wonderful animals a new life.’
