The Forsyth County Animal Shelter is waiving adoption fees for the summer beginning Tuesday, May 28.

What better way to kick off the start of summer than with a new furry pal?

The Forsyth County Animal Shelter —located at 4065 County Way, just off Ga. 400 — recently announced the standard pet adoption fee of $85 would be waived for the summer starting on Tuesday, May 28 and continuing through Tuesday, Sept. 3.

We are very excited to give residents a chance to bring home a pet at no cost,” said Animal Shelter Manager Cindy Iacopella in a news release. “All of the pets in the shelter deserve a good home and we are hopeful that this promotion will help families bring a new companion home this summer.”
