The Forsyth County Animal Shelter is waiving adoption fees from November 18, 2023 through January 3, 2024 in their “Home for the Holidays,” promotion, according to AccessWDUN.
The promotion will be waiving the standard $85 pet adoption fee. All adoptions include microchipping for pets, altering and age-appropriate vaccinations.
“Home for the Holidays is a great time of year for families to give our wonderful animals a forever home,” said Animal Shelter Manager Cindy Lacopella.”Each of the pets at the Animal Shelter deserves a family to go home with, and we truly enjoy seeing the smiles they put on adopting families’ faces.”
Adoptions are available at the shelter Tuesday through Saturday from 10:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The shelter is also inviting the public to a free Family Fun Day event from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, November 18. Residents will be able to see adoptable pets, enjoy fun activities, and bring in their own pets for rabies vaccinations and microchipping. The shelter’s transition to a new name, The Pet Resource Center, will also be highlighted at the event.
Hey guys my name is Whiskey! I came to the Forsyth County Animal Shelter as a stray and I am looking for a new family to call my own. I like to consider myself a simple guy who appreciates the finer things in life like a nice person to cuddle up next to and a bed to call my own. Maybe I could find those things with you? I am a pretty chill dude and would love to be your new family addition. If you have kids, or other dogs I would love to meet them as I am not opposed to siblings of the human or four-legged variety.
My previous owner did not keep me on heartworm prevention, and now I have to suffer the consequences and will need to find an understanding new family that can keep me on year-round prevention and give me a calm place to hang out while I go through heartworm treatment. Don’t panic though the nice people at the Forsyth County Animal Shelter will provide ALL necessary treatment at no additional cost to you. Due to my heartworm status I fall under their Foster-To-Adopt program which means my new family DOES NOT HAVE TO PAY for treatment or veterinary care while I am going through treatment! Heartworm treatment is very safe, and the success rate is high, but they prefer for heartworm positive dogs like me to recover in a home with an adopter rather than in a stressful shelter environment. This is also a great opportunity for us to begin bonding and make sure that we are a good fit!
