From a news release:

Springtime in Atlanta brings sunshine, dogwood blooms and, sadly, skyrocketing intake levels at DeKalb County Animal Services due to the high number of puppies and kittens being born.

To encourage the public to adopt, LifeLine Animal Project is offering a reduced rate on pet adoptions with its "Spring Into Adoption" promotion at DCAS.  During April, all adoptable dogs and cats are only $25.

Standard adoption screening criteria still applies. Adopted pets will be spayed or neutered, microchipped, vaccinated, heartworm or combo tested and dewormed – a $200 value!  

According to DCAS Shelter Director Susan Feingold, a staggering number of unwanted pets enter the shelter during warmer months. “Beginning in the spring, we receive an influx of unwanted litters due to people not getting their pets fixed.” she says. “We hope this promotion will bring adopters in quickly, so many wonderful pets can be adopted and lives can be saved.”  

DCAS is also still offering free spay and neuter surgeries to DeKalb County residents who cannot afford them through SNIP (Spay Neuter Impact Program) DeKalb. To learn more about SNIP DeKalb or to view the animals available for adoption at DCAS, visit www.dekalbanimalservices.com
