Young-Williams Animal Center announces end-of-year adoption special


 All pet adoptions, excluding puppies, are free through Dec. 31

“Adopt” a New Year’s resolution. Young-Williams Animal Center will offer free pet adoptions, excluding puppies, starting Wednesday, Dec. 27, at both shelter locations, as well as Bearden Petco, and Pet Supermarket.

The free adoptable pets include adult dogs and cats and kittens. Puppies will be available for adoption with the standard $250 fee.

“Our New Year’s resolution is to end ‘pet-lessness’ and find a home for so many deserving animals,” says Janet Testerman, CEO of Young-Williams Animal Center. “That’s why we are ending 2017 with a free adoption event to encourage our community members to rescue a new companion before the end of the year.”

Every animal adopted during the special promotion will receive the same services covered by the regular adoption fees, which include a veterinary exam, spay/neuter surgery, some standard vaccinations, a microchip with registration and more.

The adoption special will be available at Young-Williams Animal Center at 3201 Division St., off Sutherland Avenue, Young-Williams Animal Village at 6400 Kingston Pike on Bearden Hill; Petco in Bearden, 4908 Kingston Pike; and Pet Supermarket at 5511 Kingston Pike.

The facilities will be open during regular business hours of noon-6 p.m., and adoption applications must be submitted by 5:30 p.m.

This free adoption event is made possible by a grant from Petco Foundation.
