Delawares who have been waiting for the right time to adopt a four-legged friend and give them a forever home may find it this week as the Delaware Humane Association (DHA) and Delaware SPCA kick off their 2022 Tour For Life participation on Tuesday.

“[Tuesday,] From March 1 through Saturday, March 5, all of our dogs and cats that have been available for adoption for 22 days or more are only $22 to adopt,” said Delaware SPCA Director of Philanthropy Kate Callihan.

The week-long event is “the nation’s largest life-saving cooperative pet adoption event” and is held in partnership with North Shore Animal League America and Rachel Ray Nutrish.

“Really, the point is just to raise awareness about adoption and how essential it is to adopt, not shop around,” Callihan said. “There are so many amazing dogs and cats in shelters across the country, and it’s really just…doing our best to get animals in and out, because as soon as space opens up in our shelters – and in shelters across the country – there is room for more dogs and cats to be rescued and placed in good homes.”

The event is happening simultaneously in 53 cities in 37 states, and the goal is to identify the pets that have been in shelters the longest and give them the best opportunity to find their forever homes.

“We aim to make it as affordable as possible to bring more animals into loving homes,” said Corey Topel, DHA Marketing Director. “You can browse them online starting today to see who’s available and submit an adoption questionnaire, which we first need as part of our adoption process. Then you’ll work with the one of our adoption counselors to make sure it’s the right fit.. Even if there is someone you initially see on the site who may not be the right fit for you, our adoption counselors are fantastic We will work with you individually to find the right pet for your needs.

At DHA and Delaware SPCA facilities, Topel said there are currently more than 50 dogs and cats that meet the special pricing criteria, which means there’s plenty to choose from across the state. . Callihan noted that there are deserving fees for good girls and boys who have been unnecessarily housed for so long, the fees will be waived completely just to ensure they find a decent home.

“While we have [animals] at Delaware SPCA that have been available for 22 days or more, we also have animals that have been with us so long that they actually have adoption fees that are waived,” Callihan said. “It’s worth mentioning that $22 is the adoption fee for animals that have been with us for 22 days or more, but there are dogs, I mean five or six dogs, that have been with us a little longer and have given up the adoption fees.”

And no matter where you are in Delaware, there’s a place close enough to be worth a visit if someone is looking to expand their family.

“We have three different locations in the state of Delaware,” Topel said. “The Delaware Humane Association, we have our adoption centers in Wilmington and Rehoboth Beach for people from Sussex County. We are also in the process of merging with our great friends the Delaware SPCA. They are located in Stanton-Christiana. .So between these three centers you have a lot of adoptable dogs and cats waiting to meet you.”

DHA has locations open from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. every day of the event at:

  • 701 A Street, Wilmington, Delaware 19801
  • 18675 Coast Road, Rehoboth Beach, Delaware 19971

Delaware SPCA has a location at 455 Stanton Christiana Road, Newark, Delaware 19713 and opens daily at 11 a.m. until:

  • 7 p.m. on Tuesday
  • 4 p.m. Wednesday, Thursday and Friday
  • 5 p.m. on Saturday

Pet Adoption in Atlanta | Free adoption event this weekend https://oogutiyuushi.com/pet-adoption-in-atlanta-free-adoption-event-this-weekend/ Thu, 03 Feb 2022 08:00:00 +0000 https://oogutiyuushi.com/pet-adoption-in-atlanta-free-adoption-event-this-weekend/ Lifeline Animal Project is celebrating its 20th anniversary and says they are experiencing a shortage of guest capacity in part due to COVID.

ATLANTA — The Lifeline Animal Project of Atlanta is hosting a major free adoption event this weekend to mark its 20th anniversary, and the organization said it couldn’t come at a better time with growing populations. of shelters in part because of COVID.

Free adoptions will be available over four days – starting tomorrow, Friday February 4 and running through Monday.

Adoptions can be made at any of the three shelter locations:

  • Fulton County Animal Services: 860 Marietta Blvd. Northwest, Atlanta
  • DeKalb County Animal Services: 3280 Chamblee Dunwoody Rd., Chamblee
  • Lifeline Community Animal Center: 3180 Presidential Dr., Atlanta

Anyone interested in watching animals in need of homes can do so here

Heather Friedman, director of marketing for Lifeline Animal Project, told 11Alive’s Dalia Perez that the 20th anniversary adoption event is very important due to the strain shelters are currently feeling.

She said that currently the Fulton County facility has 221 dogs when an ideal number would be around 150, while the DeKalb County facility has 478 dogs when capacity is usually around 218.

The anniversary, she said, “couldn’t have come at a more important time…we really need the support of our community.”

“The shelters are usually not so full in January,” she said. “It’s really rare and we’re seeing it across the country. A lot of shelters are struggling right now, so we really want to encourage our community to get out there. If they were considering adopting a pet, that would be really a wonderful time to bring an animal home.”

In addition to waiving adoption fees over the weekend, the shelter covered all costs for neutering and neutering the animals, microchipping them and getting them vaccinated. Those interested in bringing home a pet can also take the opportunity to foster a pet.

RELATED: Three Atlanta animal shelters raise more than $68,200 in donations by doing the Betty White Challenge.

The event, which is sponsored by the nonprofit Petco Love, will also include gift bags for the first 20 adopters at Lifeline’s three locations.

Friedman said shelter intake — the number of animals coming in — was up 12% from a year ago, and shelters also struggled with understaffing.

“We have a situation where more animals are entering our shelters every day than they are leaving,” she said.

She also wanted to encourage people who find lost animals not to immediately turn to shelters — to work where possible to locate owners.

“Most pets are currently within a mile of their homes, so we encourage neighbors to take a picture and post it on Nextdoor, on social media, to really try to reunite these pets with their families before bringing them into the shelters, which are already full to capacity,” she said.

Friedman directed anyone who loses or finds a pet to the Lifeline website for resources and help on what to do.

City recoups higher price for pet adoption | Local News https://oogutiyuushi.com/city-recoups-higher-price-for-pet-adoption-local-news/ Fri, 28 Jan 2022 08:00:00 +0000 https://oogutiyuushi.com/city-recoups-higher-price-for-pet-adoption-local-news/

Those looking to adopt a dog from the Tullahoma Animal Shelter will soon have to dig deeper into their pockets to do so.

At the Jan. 24 meeting of the Council of Mayor and Aldermen of Tullahoma, the council approved a measure to increase certain fees to better recover the costs associated with caring for dogs adopted out of the shelter.






Ordinance #1571 would repeal and replace in its entirety Title 20, Chapter 10 of the Tullahoma Municipal Code, Fees and Fines for the Tullahoma Animal Sanctuary, to increase several fees, including adoption.

According to the ordinance, the collection fee would increase from $15 per animal to $50; animal maintenance costs would increase from $7.50 per animal per day to $15 per animal per day; the fee for animals in quarantine would increase from $12.50 per animal per day to $15 per animal per day; and adoption fees would increase from $10 to $100.

The $25 animal control fine would remain the same, as would the $50 fee for unvaccinated animals.

According to Police Chief Jason Williams, the average cost of care for dogs at the shelter is $125 per dog. With current adoption fees set at $10, the shelter cannot adequately offset the cost of medical care for animals, including neutering and neutering adopted dogs.

By raising adoption fees, city administrator Jennifer Moody said the police department, under which the shelter operates, can more easily recoup those costs.

“Tonight, we’re asking if you could consider increasing that adoption fee to $100 so it’s closer to our actual expenses,” she said at the meeting.

Alderman Jenna Amacher balked at the significant increase – a 900% increase from the current price – asking that the fee not be increased as much.

“We’re going to go from $10 to $100,” she said. “I think we need to focus more on volume than dollar signs. I think we might be able to adopt more dogs if we had better opening hours at the center.”

She proposed that fees only be increased to $60 from $100, citing a number of other animal shelters and societies that only charge between $45 and $85 for adoption fees, including Franklin County, Williamson County, Shelbyville and Bedford County.

Alderman Rupa Blackwell said she understood the shock of the price increase, but also felt that the price increase could also be in the best interests of the dogs at the shelter.

“We want people to adopt our dogs,” she said. “We also want them to be willing to adopt our dogs. What I’ve heard from people is that what we’ll see is that because it’s $10 they’ll adopt the dog and then they will see that same dog come back later.”

She said the $100 price tag is in line with several animal adoption organizations, including Animal Harbor and Lynchburg Friends of Animals, and would serve as a reminder for those looking for a dog at the shelter to really invest in the animal.

Pro Tem Mayor Jimmy Blanks said he doesn’t object to the $100 principle, but thinks the fee should gradually increase over time.

“My problem is such an increase,” he said.

Moody’s said the fee increase would not go into effect until April 1 to give the shelter enough time to notify the public of the rate increase, if approved.

Amacher said she appreciates the work of the shelter, but said the city “is not in the dog adoption business.”

“I don’t want this to be a revenue generating industry for the city of Tullahoma on our dog adoption fees,” she said. “If we do it with $10, why are we going from $10 to $100?”

Moody said the shelter “couldn’t come up” with $10, noting that the shelter may not be able to follow best practices, such as giving all necessary vaccinations or spaying and neutering all animals before they come. are not adopted due to high costs.

“The goal of the shelter is to reduce the population of unwanted pets,” Moody said.

Additionally, Moody said, the shelter previously relied solely on donations to cover the costs of all dog vaccinations and spaying/neutering, but the amount of donations the shelter receives could be as low as $10,000 for an entire year, which would leave the shelter in deficit for the number of dogs it takes in and adopts.

“It didn’t always cover the medical needs of our animals,” she said.

Dunn argued for the increase, saying the city shouldn’t rely on donations.

“Having worked in education, we don’t want to depend on donations for this to happen,” she said.

Amacher’s amendment failed 4-2, with only her and Blanks backing the $60 prize. The original motion, which would raise the price to $100, later passed 6-0 at first reading. All ordinances require two readings to take effect. The second reading will take place at the next city council meeting in February.

The San Diego Humane Society honors the late Betty White with a pet adoption challenge https://oogutiyuushi.com/the-san-diego-humane-society-honors-the-late-betty-white-with-a-pet-adoption-challenge/ Sun, 16 Jan 2022 08:00:00 +0000 https://oogutiyuushi.com/the-san-diego-humane-society-honors-the-late-betty-white-with-a-pet-adoption-challenge/

SAN DIEGO — Dozens of pets are finding forever homes in honor of beloved late actress Betty White, who would have turned 100 on Monday.

The San Diego Humane Society has issued a challenge to adopt 100 pets.

“We definitely came looking for a husky and found one that we really love,” said adopter Logan Wilson. “She was very nice and calm with us and she seemed to like us.”

Families gathered at the animal shelter on Sunday to bring home their perfect pet as the Humane Society scrapped animal adoption fees in honor of the late actress and lover’s birthday animals.

“We wanted to do something special to honor Betty White, who has done so much to bring attention to homeless dogs,” said Nina Thompson of the San Diego Humane Society. “So we wanted to do the same, and so by waiving adoption fees, we wanted to bring attention to all the adoptable pets we have.”

The Humane Society says the pandemic has caused a pause in neutering and neutering efforts that has led to more animals in shelters across the country, prompting them to launch the #BettyWhiteChallenge to get 100 animals adopted before what would be his 100th birthday.

Hundreds of dogs, cats and other furry friends returned home with their new families in a tribute White could be proud of.

Sunday evening, 249 animals were adopted.

“This is a wonderful opportunity to adopt a new family member, while recognizing the humanitarian work of the late Betty White.

I believe she would be moved by the unity and animal activism across the country as we all try to carry on her legacy. We are thrilled to join forces with our friends at Baldwin County Animal Shelter and the City of Fairhope Animal Shelter.
