CUMMING, Ga. — The Forsyth County Animal Shelter has launched its Summer of Love adoption promotion for all pet adoptions through Sept. 3. The campaign seeks to provide new homes and loving owners for more animals during the summer season. For the entire promotion, all standard adoption fees of $85 will be waived and animals can be adopted at no cost. Each adoption includes microchipping, spaying/neutering and the appropriate vaccinations.

“With the warmer weather and kids now out of school, the summer is the perfect opportunity for families looking to adopt a new pet. The warm weather brings with it lots of puppies and kittens and this promotion highlights the needs of all our deserving animals looking for their forever, loving home,” said Jaci Kobeszka, the shelter’s coordinator. 

The Forsyth County Animal Shelter is located at 4065 County Way in Cumming. Adoption hours are Tuesday through Saturday from 10:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Shelter officials say they are anticipating a positive turnout after the success of last year’s promotion. There was a substantial increase in adoptions last summer with more than 260 animals reaching new homes. With community support, the shelter hopes to surpass that number this year.

“The most important thing that we are looking to accomplish with our Summer of Love promotion is to find homes for each and every one of our animals,” Kobeszka said. “We are hoping that each time this promotion hits the air waves that just one more person becomes aware of the shelter, that one more person will walk through our doors looking for their next fur-baby, and that just one more person will share how many wonderful animals are here at the shelter just waiting for their chance to find their way home.”
