LIFELINE ANIMAL PROJECT CELEBRATES NATIONAL DOG DAY WITH FREE DOG ADOPTIONS!
DOG ADOPTION FEES WAIVED ALL DAY ON AUGUST 26, 2015
ATLANTA, GA – (August 25, 2015) – LifeLine Animal Project, the nonprofit which recently pledged to have its county shelters reach no-kill levels by the end of 2016, invites everyone to celebrate National Dog Day with free adoptions! Adopt a dog on August 26 at any of LifeLine’s shelters, including DeKalb County Animal Services, Fulton County Animal Services or LifeLine’s Dog House, and the adoption fee will be waived! Standard screening criteria still applies to ensure the dogs go to good homes.
According to LifeLine Animal Project CEO Rebecca Guinn, National Dog Day is a great time to adopt a dog, because shelters typically have the highest intake of dogs during the summer. “With 30 to 40 animals entering the shelter daily, we need public support to help us save lives,” says Rebecca. “By waiving adoption fees on National Dog Day we hope to see a record number of people coming into the shelter and giving our wonderful animals a new life.”
Adopters will receive a dog or cat that has been spayed or neutered, has had all vaccines and is microchipped – a $250 value — for no cost! To see pictures of available animals at DCAS, FCAS or LifeLine’s nonprofit shelters, please visit www.dekalbanimalservices.com, www.fultonanimalservices.com or www.lifelineanimal.org.
