Two Found Homes

The next adoption event is scheduled for Arbor Station mall on February 9th 2013.

Two of Douglas County's homeless cats found homes at the off site adoption event Saturday, at Pet Things on Douglas Blvd. Cats and dogs were brought to the event and staff and volunteers were on site from noon until 4 PM to assist the public with the pets.

Gabby and Rhianna, two of the longer residents of the shelter found homes with two cousins who came to the event and made the decision that these two cats needed to be given a forever home with them.

Mr. Wes Tallon, the county communications director, came by the event Saturday to advise DCAC staff that permission had been been granted for another animal control sponsored off site adoption event next month at Arbor Place Mall in Douglas County on February 9th.

Meanwhile, county residents are encouraged to visit the animal shelter to see the many other wonderfull animals available at the shelter.

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.

Or you can visit the Douglas County shelter pets posted and profiled daily on volunteer pages at: Rainbow Connections on Facebook  Or our sister page at: Furbabies of DCAS on Facebook.

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.
