DeKalb County Animal Services is in dire need of adopters because of an overcrowded shelter
To encourage adoptions, DCAS is offering a special deal on pets for adoption with their 'Tail End of Summer' adoption promotion.
During the month of September, dog adoptions are only $20, and cat adoptions are only $10.
All adopted pets will be spayed or neutered, microchipped, vaccinated, heartworm or comb-tested and dewormed. The normal adoption rates for dogs is $95, with the services provided costing more than $200. Standard adoption screening criteria still applies.
According to DCAS Director Susan Feingold, the goal of the promotion is to find homes for dozens of animals.
"There are so many wonderful animals at our shelter that would make the perfect pet for anyone," said Feingold. "We hope this promotion will encourage people to come in, adopt and save lives."
