This Saturday, August 18, LifeLine Animal Project is waiving adoption fees for its “Clear The Shelter” event.
According to a recent press release, “intake levels at our DeKalb and Fulton County Animal Services shelters remain high, with 40 to 60 new animals arriving daily.”
“Clear The Shelter” is an effort by LifeLine to place the 1,100+ animals from their shelters into homes.
All cats and each dog weighing more than 25 pounds, qualify for free adoption – meaning free spay/neuter, microchip, and vaccinations. In addition, each person will be screened before an adoption is finalized to make sure animals are taken to loving households.
Waived adoptions will be available at all four of LifeLine Animal Project’s shelters, located in Avondale Estates, Scottdale, Chamblee, and Atlanta, Ga.
“The shelters plan on making the event festive, with decorations, photo booths, popsicles – while supplies last – and more, so the whole family can have fun visiting the shelters and playing with pets,” stated a recent press release.
If you have fun at “Clear The Shelter,” come out next Sunday, August 26, to SweetWater Brewing Company for LifeLine’s National Dog Day celebration.
Held at SweetWater Brewing Company, one dollar from each pint sold will go to LifeLine. In addition, Flywheel Sports is offering a 12 p.m. FlyBarre class with a lunch provided by Recess at SweetWater, and all of their proceeds will go to LifeLine, too.
Event goers will get to take home a souvenir pint glass, go on a tour of the SweetWater Brewery, and get the chance to meet some LifeLine shelter dogs.
