The furry frisbee fetchers are available at Clayton’s two public kennels where strays and animals released by their owners are housed. Twelve of the dogs are at the county’s adoption center at 3199 Anvil Block Road in Ellenwood. The other eight are housed at animal control headquarters in Jonesboro at 1396 Government Circle.
The breeds available for urgent adoption include coonhounds, Labrador mixes, Dalmatians, Rottweilers and German shepherds.
Each of the adoptions come with a $95 fee that includes vaccines, spay/neuter costs, rabies shots and microchipping. Those wishing to take home a pit bull or pit bull mix must submit to a background check in order to adopt.
Interested pet lovers are asked to reach out to animal control staff before visiting a shelter to inquire about the dogs they’d like to adopt. Prospective adoptees can call the adoption center at 770-347-0210, contact animal control headquarters at 770-477-3509 or email the staff at email@example.com. Include the intake number for the animal in which you’re interested.
