|PET ADOPTION AT A DISCOUNT PRICE|
ADOPTION AND REGISTRATION FEES WAIVED FOR A DAY
DECATUR - In an effort to promote community awareness to the plight of unwanted animals, the DeKalb County Board of Commissioners voted to waive adoption and registration fees to coincide with a special pet adoption event.
The DeKalb Animal Services & Enforcement unit is hosting the "Pet Adoption Day" Saturday, June 25, at The Northlake Mall, 4800 Briarcliff Road in Tucker. Anyone who adopts a pet on that day will only pay for expenses incurred for spaying or neutering the animals.
"It is so important that we raise public awareness about pet adoption and save the lives of these stray and abandoned dogs," said DeKalb Chief Executive Officer Vernon Jones. "It is inhumane that so many animals have to be put down simply because owners won't spay and neuter their pets."
The $32 that pet owners will save represents more than a 30% savings for dogs: male dogs will cost only $55, females will cost $60.
Although cats will only be available at DeKalb Animal Service Center at 845 Camp Road, the fee waiver applies. A male cat will only cost $30 to adopt, and females will cost $50.
All adopted animals will already be spayed and neutered, vaccinated against rabies, and will come with the appropriate registration and paperwork. Anyone age 18 and over can adopt a pet.
If you can't make it to "Pet Adoption Day," you can adopt an animal at any time from the DeKalb Animal Services & Enforcement Unit at 845 Camp Road. For more information, call 404-294-2996.
