Reduced dog adoption fees at DeKalb, Fulton Animal Shelters
ATLANTA, GA — The number of pets entering shelters in metro Atlanta has increased over the past month, according to LifeLine Animal Project, and now they’re a bit full.
During the month of May, an average of 49 animals per day were brought to LifeLine’s Fulton and DeKalb County Animal Services shelters combined – the vast majority being lost animals.
Because of this high number of shelters, LifeLine is offering $20 adoptions through June 13 for all dogs over 20 pounds. The promotion is available at Lifeline’s Fulton and DeKalb shelters, as well as the LifeLine Community Animal Center.
“Last year around this time, people rallied in droves to adopt and foster animals,” said Lara Hudson, director of the Fulton County Animal Services shelter, in a press release. “We knew adoptions would slow down at some point, so hopefully the community will take advantage of our awesome $20 promotion and bring home a best friend while freeing up some much needed space in our shelters.”
To see the hundreds of adoptable dogs, visit the LifeLine Animal Project Adoptable Dogs tab on the website.
