No-kill Washington-Wilkes County Shelter pets at Anderson Petsmart May 3-4

Washington-Wilkes County Shelter, located in Washington, Georgia, between Athens and Augusta, will be participating in the Petsmart National Adoption Event on Saturday and Sunday, May 3-4 at Petsmart in Anderson.

They will have both dogs and cats available for adoption.

Washington-Wilkes County Animal Shelter has the distinction of being one of the few open-intake animal shelters in the area that is no-kill, limiting euthanasia to gravely ill pets. A page at BestFriends.org listing the shelter as Georgia Rescue Group of the week in January 2007 states the shelter's philosphy:

We strive to do what is best for the animals. There is always hope of finding a home for an animal until you euthanize, then all hope is gone. At the end of the day when I turn the key in the lock if my conscience is clean, I can sleep.

They have accomplished their goal of no-kill through an aggressive spay-neuter program paired with adoptions and outreach to rescue groups.

Like all other pets available at the adoption event, all will be spayed/neutered, tested, and current on shots.

A listing of some of the pets they'll have available this weekend is below.
