If you are looking for that perfect gift for your mother this Mother’s Day think about giving her a gift of love and life by adopting a beautiful cat or loveable dog from DeKalb County Animal Services (DCAS).
In honor of all mothers and those who love mothers, DCAS is offering special adoption fees on all adult (six months or older) dogs and cats during the month of May. The adoption fee is only $20 for adult dogs and $10 for adult 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 May 7, 2014 DCAS Press Release:
"It’s springtime, and while many people are eager to adopt a kitten or puppy, we also have many great adult cats and dogs who are waiting in the shelter for a home," said DCAS Shelter Director Susan Feingold. "We have hundreds of great pets who are in need of that special person and will provide many years of love in return."
