Atlanta shelter’s plea for help: adopt now to prevent overcrowding

Do you love dogs? Are you looking for a way to make a difference in their lives? Read this article to find out how you can help Atlanta’s shelter dogs by adopting one and preventing overcrowding. Learn more about how your contribution can make a world of difference to these furry friends.

The Atlanta Animal Shelter recently put out a plea for help to the public.

They are hoping that people will hear their plea and adopt an animal in need.

Atlanta animal shelter overcrowding

Atlanta’s animal shelter is facing a significant overcrowding crisis and is urgently calling for adoptions to help reduce the numbers.

The number of animals at the shelter has surpassed its capacity, and the situation is becoming increasingly unmanageable.

The overcrowding is an incredibly serious issue, and if it is not addressed soon, the consequences could be catastrophic. The lack of space means that some animals may have to be euthanised. This would be a heartbreakingly sad consequence of the current situation, but if it continues, it may become unavoidable.

Fortunately, there are ways to help the shelter and prevent this from happening. Adopting a rescue animal is one way to support the Atlanta animal shelter, but donations are also welcomed. If everyone works together, we can help reduce overcrowding and protect our furry friends.

If you want to know more about adopting a dog or the dogs that are available for adoption, you can visit the Fulton County Animal Services website. The adoption fee is $85 for a dog, and $40 for a dog over the age of five.

The staff will spay or neuter, microchip, and vaccinate all dogs before they are adopted.

They also test them for heartworms, and provide flea/tick prevention and a dewormer at no additional cost to the new owner.

To adopt a dog, you can browse the pets on the website and submit an adoption inquiry. After that, you can meet the dog, determine if you are a good match for each other, and complete the adoption process.

You must be at least 18 years old and provide a government-issued photo ID to adopt. Additionally, you will need to complete a preliminary questionnaire and meet with an adoption counselor.
