DeKalb joins nationwide focus on animal adoption Monday

The “Just One Day” effort is designed to reduce the number of healthy animals put down instead of adopted out of shelters and pounds.

The county is discounting the adoption fee on all animals out of its shelter to $60 for the week as part of the effort. All pets receive vaccines and are spayed or neutered before they are available for adoption.

To view available animals, visit Animals also can be seen in person at the shelter, 845 Camp Road, just off Memorial Drive and I-285, near Decatur.
