Animal welfare agencies partner to increase adoptions
Young-Williams Animal Center and the Humane Society of the Tennessee Valley are partnering for a “Home for the Holidays” adoption special, sponsored by Grayson Subaru. From Dec. 21-23, all pets at Young-Williams Animal Center and the Humane Society locations will be $25.
“There is no better way to celebrate the holidays than emptying all shelters in Knoxville to start the New Year,” said Jeff Ashin, CEO for Young-Williams Animal Center. “Thanks to Grayson Subaru, that is exactly what we intend to do, and we hope all of East Tennessee will join us and the Humane Society to adopt the pets in our facilities during this three-day event.”
The agencies will kick off the adoption event with a tree lighting ceremony at Young-Williams Animal Village of Knoxville on Monday, Dec. 21. The adoption prices will be available at Young-Williams Animal Center, 3201 Division St., off Sutherland Ave; Young-Williams Animal Village, 6400 Kingston Pike on Bearden Hill; and the Humane Society of the Tennessee Valley, 6717 Kingston Pike.
“At Grayson Subaru, we believe in making our community a better place to live,” said Randy Carter, Grayson Subaru Sales Manager. “One way we do that is through supporting animal welfare organizations such as Young-Williams Animal Center and the Humane Society of the Tennessee Valley. We hope the ‘Home for the Holidays’ adoption special will save so many animals’ lives in East Tennessee.”
Every adopted animal will receive the services covered by the regular adoption fee, which includes a veterinary physical exam, spay/neuter surgery, some standard vaccinations, microchip with registration and more.
“We hope to see lots of community members take advantage of this first-time partnership between our organizations,” said Amy Buttry, executive director for the Humane Society of the Tennessee Valley. “Both of us are committed to finding forever homes for all the animals in East Tennessee.”
