There’s only one more week left to take advantage of LifeLine Animal Project’s ‘My Furry Valentine’ special at DeKalb County Animal Services. For one more week, you can adopt your true love for only $14! All adopted dogs and cats will be spayed or neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and more – a $200 value!  All applicants will be screened as always to make sure the animal is a good fit and that he/she is going to a great home. Two of the dogs you can adopt for only $14 just happen to be our Pets of the Week!

DeKalb Animal Services Pets of the Week: Boris and India

Meet Boris, a beautiful and sweet six-month-old puppy who is the perfect mix of playful and loving!  Boris is a very loving and good-natured boy. He loves running around and playing ball, but he also love snuggling and cuddling. Boris gets along well with other dogs and loves kids too. Could he be your soul mate?

Next up is lovely India, a beautiful white dog with a few gray spots. India is very sweet and loves other dogs. India is deaf, so she needs a loving owner who is willing to teach her hand commands. Since India is smart, and since deaf dogs learn hand signals quickly, she can lead a completely normal life. Is India your true love?

To meet Boris or India, please drop by the shelter, email adoption@dekalbanimalservices.com or call (404) 294-2165. To view other great animals available for adoption, visit www.dekalbanimalservices.com

As a dog lover who has owned many over the years (including boxer, beagle, standard fox hound, cocker, setter, lab and dalmation mix), I commend your efforts to help animals. But I am offended that again this week you are using pit bulls as "poster children" for our DeKalb Animal Services. These are volatile dogs bred to kill other dogs, and we steadily see news of their attacking, maiming and even killing people of all ages in our county. According to DeKalb police and civil court judges, pit bulls are a major problem in our county, yet you are helping their proliferation. I'm sure there are some owners who spay/neuter, keep rabies and other shots current, register their dog with the county annually, etc. of responsible dog ownership - and who keep their dogs on leashes, construct the necessary tall secure fence inside their chain-link backyards to protect neighbors and their pets, etc. But there are far more irresponsible owners who do none of these things, and simply turn these powerful dogs loose on the neighborhood, allow more batches of pups that you in turn adopt out to unsuspecting people who do not even know it is a pit bull. I beg you to please stop filling our county with this breed of dog and any of its mixed variations -- you have no way of vetting adopters, no way of knowing what harm you may be causing.
