DeKalb County will join animal shelters nationwide Monday in pledging not to euthanize any animals for the day and instead focus on animal adoptions.
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.
