Wythe County’s Department of Animal Control has teamed up with local businesses in an effort to offer free dog adoptions throughout the month of October.
Sponsored by Bob Huff Chevrolet – Buick – GMC and Huff Ford – Subaru, the program is part of a national movement known as “Adopt a Shelter-Dog Month.”
Throughout the month, the two car dealerships will alternate paying the shelter’s $20 adoption fee per new pet owner.
In addition to having the adoption fee covered by the Wytheville dealerships, new adoptive pet owners will be given a “goodie bag” containing several coupons and discount cards to local businesses, including one free grooming session to A Dog’s World Pet Spa, a Petco treat bag, and one free consultation to Shine Dog Training.
“We’re excited to be partnering with local businesses for the second year in a row. We would like to thank the many great organizations and sponsors who have helped make this event possible,” says Tabitha Jackson, a Wythe County Animal Control Department employee.
Those interested in adopting a dog are encouraged to contact the county’s animal control office by calling (276) 228-6003.
