DeKalb shelter: free adoptions during November

ATLANTA, GA -- (November 3, 2014)  LifeLine Animal Project wants you to give shelter pets a reason to be thankful, so throughout the month of November, the organization is offering fee-waived adoptions at DeKalb County Animal Services (DCAS).  Through their “Give Our Shelter Pets a Reason to be Thankful” promotion, you may adopt any dog, puppy, cat or kitten for FREE at DCAS!  Adoption counselors will be on hand to ensure the animals are being placed in good homes.

According to DCAS Shelter Director Susan Feingold, the goal of the promotion is to increase the number of shelter animals who will find homes this holiday season.  “All pets deserve a warm bed, a full belly and someone to love them, and in return they bring many positive benefits to a home,” she says.  “Our fee-waived promotions tend to bring more people into the shelter, so we’re counting on continued community support to help more of our animals find forever homes.”

LifeLine Animal Project CEO Rebecca Guinn says that offering fee-waived adoptions is a great way to increase adoption rates.  “Free adoptions tend to create a buzz of excitement and bring more people into shelters,” she says.  “According to numerous studies, fee-waived promotions increase adoptions without compromising the quality of care that the animals receive.”

All November, adopters will receive a dog or cat that has been spayed or neutered, has had all vaccines and is microchipped – a $200 value – for FREE!  To view animals available for adoption, or for the shelter’s address and phone number, please go to DCAS or visit us online at http://www.dekalbanimalservices.com/adopt-a-pet.
