UPDATE: On Monday, Crystal Reno, the supervisor of East Ridge Animal Services Department, said the facility is still full of dogs waiting for adoption. As a result, any adoption fees will continue to be waived until the census in the facility is down.
“There are some great dogs here that are waiting for their ‘furever’ home,” Reno said in an e-mail to East Ridge News Online. “If you are unable to adopt share our post.”
East Ridge Animal Services are encouraging the adoption of its surrendered dogs by waiving adoption fees indefinitely, officials said in a news release on Memorial Day.
“The shelter is full of amazing pups awaiting their ‘furever’ home,” said Crystal Reno, the Supervisor of East Ridge Animal Services. “Get down to the shelter this week and meet everyone.”
Officials said all dogs have been spayed/neutered, are up to date on all vaccinations and heartworm tested. Where heartworms have been diagnosed, the animals are on a preventative medication. In addition, all dogs that are adopted come with their own collar and leash.
