MARIETTA, Ga. (CBS46) – The Best Friends Animal Society and Mini USA are hosting a special event this weekend to help find forever homes for the many dogs and cats in the Atlanta metro area.
Adopters can take advantage of the promotion most of the weekend and meet adoptable pets in person on Dec. 11 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at their Oak Street office in Marietta, according to the press release.
“Whatever life throws at you, having a pet makes everything better. Pets provide constant companionship while dramatically reducing stress, which many of us can really appreciate these days, ”said Julie Castle, CEO of Best Friends Animal Society. “The holidays are a great time to adopt and thanks to MINI we hope to welcome a record number of dogs and cats to loving homes this season. “
According to Castle, MINI USA is sponsoring all adoption fees at Best Friends stores over the weekend to encourage more people to adopt new pets.
The organization works in conjunction with Atlanta-area shelters, animal welfare organizations, and individuals to save the lives of pets in shelters across the region and across the country.
“All of the animals in Best Friends are neutered, vaccinated and microchipped, so it’s really fantastic that you can also save adoption fees for your new best friend’s pet supplies,” Castle added.
