DeKalb County is offering free pet adoptions in May through its “Spring into Adoption” promotion.

LifeLine Animal Project, the non-profit organization which runs DeKalb County Animal Services, says the adoption special is for any pet weighing 25 pounds or more. The animal will get spayed or neutered, all vaccines, and a microchip at no cost to the new pet parent.

In a press release, shelter director Susan Feingold said, “With up to 30 animals entering the shelter daily, we urgently need public support to help us save lives. By providing fee-waived adoptions on pets 25 pounds and larger, we hope to see a record number of people coming into the shelter and giving our wonderful animals a new life.”

You can see adoptable dogs and cats and shelter hours on the DeKalb County Animal Services website.
