Animal Control to bring adoptable pets to public
Placeholder Image

Warren County Animal Control is launching a new program tomorrow that will take animals out of the facility and into the public in an effort to find them homes.
“We have been very successful in our efforts to find homes for most of the animals,” said Warren County Animal Control director Tammy Webb. “Right now, we have quite a few very adoptable animals. So, if the public won’t come to us, we will go to them.”
Webb will be transporting animals to Pets and More, located on Chancery Street. She will have several cats, kittens, dogs and puppies on display from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.
“The animals I’m bringing with me would make good family pets,” Webb said. “They just need homes with a loving, responsible pet owner.”
This is one of several programs Webb has begun at the facility in order to encourage adoptions and reduce the euthanization rate.
“This is a new program for us,” said Webb. “The main reason we were invited is because Pets and More is holding its grand opening on that day. However, if adoptions go well, we hope to do this at least a couple times a year or as often as they will let us.”
Individuals interested in viewing some of the animals currently up for adoption at Animal Control, but do not have time Saturday, can stop by the facility Monday thru Friday.
“This is a new program, but people can still come to Animal Control and look for animals,” said Webb. “Call me and we can schedule a viewing.”
Adoptions are $35, which includes a $25 spay or neuter deposit. When proof of the procedure is presented, the deposit is refunded. Animal Control is located at 169 Paws Trail. For more information call 507-3647.
