Adoption fees for four-footed friends only $4 for four hours on the 4th!
Young-Williams Animal Center is celebrating July 4 with an adoption special to give pets the independence from shelter life that they deserve.
On Saturday, July 4, from noon-4 p.m., adoption fees for cats and dogs 4 years and older will be just $4.
“The Fourth of July is a great time to adopt a pet,” Young-Williams Animal Center CEO Jeff Ashin said. “Both of our facilities will be open starting at noon, and we have a variety of dogs and cats of various sizes, ages and breeds that need homes.”
Ashin said it’s important for the shelter to offer pet adoptions on holidays, especially during the summer when the center experiences its highest intake of animals.
Every animal adopted during the special promotion will receive the services covered by the regular adoption fees, which include a veterinary exam, spay/neuter surgery, some standard vaccinations, a microchip with registration and more.
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. While the special holiday adoption fee of $4 is available from noon-4 p.m., both facilities will be open during regular business hours of noon-6 p.m.
“Celebrate Independence Day by adding a loyal and loving furry companion to your family,” Ashin said.
“At Young-Williams Animal Center, we take in an average of 12,000 animals every year for which there are simply not enough homes. In addition to adoption, it is imperative more pet owners spay or neuter their dogs and cats. It is the most effective and most humane way to impact the pet overpopulation in East Tennessee.”
