Young-Williams Animal Center hosts week long National Dog Day adoption event

Buttercup-A33102161(3)Adoption fees reduced to make room in shelter


Young-Williams Animal Center will celebrate National Dog Day all week with reduced adoption fees.


“There’s no better way to celebrate National Dog Day than adopting a puppy or a dog from one of our two facilities,” explains Director of Sheltering, Monica Brown.


Brown adds, “We continue to discourage people from buying dogs from puppy mills and backyard breeders when shelters are full of wonderful dogs available for adoption.”


As always, every animal adopted during the special receives a veterinary exam, spay/neuter surgery, some standard vaccinations, a microchip with registration and more. Senior dogs are free, adult dogs 5 months- 6 years are $25.00, puppies are $150.00.


“Adopting a pet from one of our facilities can be one of the most rewarding and compassionate things you can do if you’re an animal lover,” says Monica Brown. “These pets are full of love, eager to please and are now just waiting for a second chance in finding that permanent loving home.”


Brown emphasized how important it is to have these special promotions during the summer when the center experiences its highest intake of animals.


“Spaying or neutering helps control the pet overpopulation in the community, and over time, helps decrease the number of homeless animals entering the shelter,” Brown said.


The adoption special will be available at Young-Williams Animal Center at 3201 Division St., off Sutherland Avenue, and the Young-Williams Animal Village at 6400 Kingston Pike on Bearden Hill. The facilities will be open during regular business hours of noon-6 p.m.
