LifeLine Animal Project Honors Military Service with “Pets for Vets”
Atlanta non-profit no-kill shelter and advocacy group is waiving adoption fees on dogs and cats in the month of November for all military veterans and active service members.
ATLANTA, GA – (October 28, 2011) In honor of Veteran’s Day on November 11th, LifeLine Animal Project announces that all of November will be “Pets For Vets” month as their way of thanking pet-loving members of the U.S. military for their sacrifice and service.
“We are deeply grateful for the brave men and women who put themselves in harm’s way for our sake,” said Blythe Randolph, board chair for LifeLine, “We wish them renewed happiness here at home and for current and former military who wish to make a pet part of their lives, we hope they will find a new four-legged friend and family member at LifeLine.”
Shelter dogs from LifeLine’s Dog House and cats and kittens from their Kitty Motel are available for adoption throughout the month of November. Potential adopters must meet LifeLine’s standard criteria for adopting a pet, however all adoption fees of $80- $120 are waived for service men and women showing military ID or discharge papers.
All pets are current on their vaccinations and have been spayed or neutered and micro chipped. Many dogs who have been at the shelter for any length of time have received some basic obedience training.
