CBS46 reports that Lifeline Animal Service will waive adoption fee through Sunday.
With the influx of animal intakes, the shelters are putting out an emergency plea to find homes for 250 pets in five days.
To help incentivize people to adopt, they are offering fee-waived adoptions on all pets from Wednesday, June 23 through Sunday, June 27. All adopted pets will also be spayed or neutered, microchipped and vaccinated.
There are currently 226 animals residing at Fulton County Animal Services and 370 animals at DeKalb County Animal Services.
“The community stepped up in a big way during the pandemic and helped us to clear the shelters during uncertain times,” Shelter Director Kerry Moyers-Horton said. “We are counting on their amazing support to help save even more lives.”
All LifeLine shelters are participating in fee-waived adoptions, including Fulton County Animal Services, 860 Marietta Blvd NW, Atlanta; DeKalb County Animal Services, 3280 Chamblee Dunwoody Rd, Chamblee; and the LifeLine Community Animal Center, 3180 Presidential Drive, Atlanta.
