Community invited to attend family-friendly and pet-friendly event

The Forsyth County Animal Shelter is hosting their second Spring Fling adoption event this Saturday, April 23, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Forsyth County Animal Shelter. The event will offer family-friendly and pet-friendly activities including a bounce house, water balloon toss, dog agility course, free food and more. For those bringing pets, microchipping will be available for $15 to the first 20 pet owners and for $25 for all others.

The event is free to attend, and during the event dogs and cats will be available for adoption.

“We invite everyone to join us at our Spring Fling adoption event for a day of fun and a chance to meet the wonderful animals available for adoption at the shelter,” said Animal Shelter Manager Jeanie Curphey.

Forsyth County opened its new animal shelter in August 2014. Construction of the approximately 13,700-square-foot facility was funded by the Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax (SPLOST) VII program approved by voters in 2011.

The Forsyth County Animal Shelter is located just off of GA 400 at 4065 County Way in northern Forsyth County. The shelter is open for adoptions Tuesday through Saturday from 10:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.
