Third annual “Home for the Holidays” adoption promotion available through January 2


To help make holiday wishes come true for families, and pets, the Forsyth County Animal Shelter is waiving their standard $85 pet adoption fee. The Home for the Holidays promotion begins Saturday, Nov. 30 and will be available for pet adoptions through Jan. 2, 2020.

“Home for the holidays has become a time of the year that the entire staff at the shelter looks forward to because we know that our wonderful animals have a great opportunity at finding their forever homes,” said Animal Shelter Manager Cindy Iacopella. “Each of these pets deserves a family to go home with and we truly enjoy seeing the smiles they put on adopting families’ faces.”

The shelter’s adoption fee includes microchipping for all pets, altering and age appropriate vaccinations.

The Forsyth County Animal Shelter (4065 County Way) is located just off GA 400 in northern Forsyth County and provides animal adoptions from 10:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday.


The shelter will be closed on Tuesday, Dec. 24 and Wednesday, Dec. 25 for Christmas as well as Wednesday, Jan. 1 for New Year’s Day.


In addition to seeking homes for all the animals in their care, the Forsyth County Animal Shelter is always looking for volunteers, those willing to foster animals and donations of items such as pet food, toys and bedding.
