Forsyth County Animal Shelter discounting adoption fees for the summer
The Forsyth County Animal Shelter announced Thursday, May 31, 2018, that they are cutting their standard pet adoption fee for all animals.

The Forsyth County Animal Shelter hopes to help families bring a new pet, and some summer love, home by cutting their standard $85 pet adoption fee to $40 for all animals.

The Summer of Love adoption promotion begins June 2 and will be available for pet adoptions through Sept. 3, 2018.

“With the warmer weather outside and with kids now home from school, the summer is a great time to for many families to adopt a new pet,” said animal shelter manager Cindy Iacopella. “All of the pets in the shelter deserve a good home and we are hopeful that this promotion will help families be able to bring a new companion home.”

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

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

Residents looking to adopt a pet may also visit Beaver Toyota (1875 Buford Highway) on the second Saturday of each month from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. to interact with some of the shelter’s pets.

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.
