More 411 on the Big Adoption Day for Turtle and Friends:
Two dozen of the 30 dogs rescued earlier this week from a rural property in Central Texas will be available for adoption.
“From the moment we saw these dogs, we knew they would make wonderful, loving companions,” says Frances Jonon, AHS Executive Director. “They’re doing great and ready to be part of a family. It’s a wonderful feeling to play a role in giving these animals the kind of homes they deserve.”
The dogs are a mix of Hound, Labrador Retriever, and Shepherd. The puppies range in age from six weeks to six months old, and the adult dogs are three years to five years old. All have received veterinary care from AHS, and veterinarians have released 24 of the dogs for adoption. Their adoption fees include vaccinations, flea and tick treatment, dewormer, a microchip, and spay or neuter surgery. Another mother dog and her five puppies are enjoying the comforts of foster care, and will be available for adoption in the coming weeks.
A line is expected to form before the event, so potential adopters are encouraged to show up early. Shelter doors open at noon (124 W. Anderson Lane in North Austin). Potential adopters will be required to fill out an adoption application, and screenings will proceed as normal. Adoption counselors will be on hand to assist.
Side note: Make sure you do not leave your dogs/cats/pets in a hot car even w/ the window cracked in 100 plus degrees does nothing. The same goes for leaving them outside w/no shade and fresh water. Just remember if it's to hot for you, it's definitely too hot for them. Click here for the signs of heat stroke.
