New Programs at DeKalb County Animal Services

Some announcements:

Our shelter has experienced an extremely high intake of animals this past couple of months and in an effort to get the dogs and cats adopted, we’re having a “Tail End of Summer” adoption promotion for the rest of September. Dog adoptions are only $20 and cat adoptions are only $10 including the spay/neuter, microchip, vaccinations, etc (well over a $200 retail value). I’ve attached a poster and a jpg graphic about this promotion and would appreciate it if you could spread the word. Photos of pets for adoption are on our website at:

DeKalb County and our shelter are also overwhelmed with an extremely high number of pit bulls and pit bull mixes and we have a new program that hopes to help fix that. It is called the “Free Pit Fix” and it provides free spay/neuters and vaccinations (rabies and distemper/parvo) for pit bulls and pit bulls mixes that reside in DeKalb county. DeKalb residents just need to print, fill out and mail or fax in the form located at:
Once the form is received, a voucher for a free spay/neuter and shots is mailed to the pet owners.
