As the weather warms up, the number of homeless and unwanted pets entering the shelter increases dramatically, because so many people do not fix their pets. To help reduce that number, LifeLine Animal Project announces SNIP DeKalb (Spay Neuter Impact Program), which will provide free spay/neuters, along with free vaccinations, for DeKalb County pet owners needing financial assistance.
residents who cannot afford to pay for low-cost spay or neuter services
should either pick up an application at DeKalb County Animal Services (DCAS), 845 Camp Rd
Decatur, GA 30032, or visit www.dekalbanimalservices.com, print and fill out the SNIP DeKalb application, and then mail it in. When approved, applicants will receive a voucher for a free spay/neuter and instructions in the mail.
DCAS Pets of the Week: Harrison and Chong
Meet Harrison, a very sweet three-year-old Lab mix who has been at the shelter for four months. He is mild mannered, calm, good natured and extremely loving. Harrison is good with other dogs and would make a great companion for yours.
If you’d rather adopt a cat, then Chong may be your boy. Chong is a three-year-old, shorthaired Tabby who was left abandoned in an apartment (with his brother Cheech) when the owner moved. Despite being abandoned, Chong is very friendly, social and loving.
To meet Harrison or Chong, please drop by the shelter, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (404) 294-2165. To view other great animals available for adoption, visit www.dekalbanimalservices.com.
