Columbia County Animal Care and Control will hold a special pet adoption event in Appling on Friday and Saturday.
Animal Care and Control Manager Linda Fulmer said adoption prices will be reduced for the two-day event. She said the event helps with both immediate adoptions and promotion of the facility.
"We do it on a quarterly basis to let people know where we are and try to get more people out here to adopt from us," she said.
The adoption event runs from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday and continues from 8 a.m. to noon Saturday.
Light refreshments will be available at the event, Fulmer said. Closed-toe shoes are required of visitors to the facility.
Dogs and puppies are $10 and kittens and cats are $5. There is a limit of one pet per household and animals must be spayed or neutered.
Animal Care and Control is located at 6337 Columbia Road in Appling, just east of the Columbia County Sheriff's Office. For more information and to view a list of adoptable pets, visit www.columbiacountyga.gov.
