Standard $85 adoption fee waived on all animals through September 1

To enhance their “Summer of Love” adoption special, the Forsyth County Animal Shelter is waiving all adoption fees for animals through Sept. 1, 2018. 

“We have had such a great reaction to the ‘Summer of Love’ adoption promotion from the county that we wanted to make it even better by waiving all fees for residents looking to add a pet to their family this summer,” said Animal Shelter Manager Cindy Iacopella. “We have a large number of animals, including an abundance of kittens, that are in need of a home during this time of year. We are hopeful that enhancing this promotion will help families be able to bring a new companion home.”

The shelter launched the “Summer of Love” promotion in June, cutting their $85 pet adoption fee to $40 for all animals. 

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

The Forsyth County Animal Shelter (4065 County Way) provides animal adoptions from 10:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. 

In addition to seeking homes for all of 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.
