Rescue Puppies for Adoption This Weekend

Two-day rescue puppy adoption event at Stratford Petco, 955 Ferry Blvd. July 28-29, 10:00am - 5:00pm.

Please come to this Saturday and Sunday, July 28th-29th, from 10:00-5:00pm and consider rescuing one of several dozen dogs and puppies pulled from high-kill animal shelters in Georgia.

The adoption fee is $350 and all the dogs are spayed/neutered, have all the age appropriate shots (unless the adopters choose to have any other vaccinations given after adoption), have been dewormed, and have been started on heart worm prevention. The adoption fee includes 6 months of the heartworm prevention for dogs over 6 months of age and younger than 8 years of age*.

*The type of heart worm prevention this age brack were put on lasts for 6 months. The others will have one month's free and a coupon for a discount off a six-month supply if they choose to use that particular brand

The rescue saves animals from high kill shelters and also takes in many abandoned dogs running lose or puppies that are dumped on their door step. They have taken in many animals that are on death's door in the past few weeks that they are overrun with animals that have no shot of being adopted down there.

If you see a dog/puppy photo you are intereted in just email colbertvet@yahoo.com and they can email them the adoption application ahead of time. Otherwise, paperwork will be available the day(s) of the event.

Approximately 40 dogs and puppies will come up from Georgia to the Stratford Petco this weekend July 28th and 29th for the adoption event.

Thanks; what a wonderful way to try to get homes for these pets. If I could had more time and space and did not have to be slave to my Mommy I would for sure take on another maybe. GLEN
