The Glynn County Commission will consider letting the animal control agency participate in “Clear the Shelters,” according to The Brunswick News.
“It’s an event on May 4 called ‘Emptying the Shelter.’ All dogs and cats adopted from the shelter on that day will cost a reduced fee of $25,” said Animal Control Manager Tiffani Hill.
The Bissell Pet Foundation, the organizer of the event, will award grants based on the number of pets adopted on May 4. If the commission approves the request, animal control will participate in the national event and get grant funding afterward.
According to a memo from Assistant County Manager Kathryn Downs to the commission, each adopted dog will add $100 to the grant while adopted cats increase the amount by $50.
“We want to encourage everyone the week before the event to visit the shelter and look at the pets and adopt on May 4,” Hill said.
