The January promotion for the Douglas County shelter animals has been approved. During the month of January, all dogs with spots and all cats with patches are half the normal adoption fee, or $17 all spots and all patches qualify for this promotion.
Come by the shelter and have a look at the many wonderful animals waiting to become your new best friend in the new year. Need a dog to go on those long walks with you as part of your new years resolution to exercise? The shelter has many wonderful dogs who would love to be your companion and exercise friend.
Need something a little more comfy for those cold winter evenings? Something to warm your lap and purr contently as you snuggle up to watch a movie after dinner? There are many beautiful cats at the shelter who are waiting for the opportunity to be your snuggle buddy.
If you are interested in adopting one of the many dogs or cats that are available for adoption at the shelter, please take the time to visit the Douglas County Animal Shelter located at 1755 County Services Road (off Cedar Mountain Road) this week.
Douglas County Animal Control maintains PetFinder listings on their website.
Pet listings on each of these pages are updated daily; therefore, some animals featured may be adopted prior to your visiting the shelter. Finding forever homes for these pets is the goal, so please consider giving another loving pet a home if the one you first saw has already been adopted. Come see these sweet dogs and cats and allow them to show you just how special they each can be once they are given a chance to be loved and have a home.
Adoption fees for dogs and cats at the shelter are $25 and there is a $10 micro chip fee. That means for $35 you have the opportunity to make a friend for life and the opportunity to give a homeless fur kid a forever home.
All dogs presently receive intake inoculations for kennel cough, parvo and distemper (cats receive distemper as part of a five way vaccination). All pets adopted from the shelter are required to have their rabies shots and be spayed or neutered within thirty days of adoption, unless they are kittens or puppies, Kittens and puppies are given extended time. The Douglas County Animal Shelter phone is: 770-942-5961. If the line is busy, please keep trying as there is often limited staff to answer calls. However, messages left will be returned as time permits.
