A Stimulus Package for Dog Lovers

dogKNOXVILLE -- Young-Williams Animal Center is offering a "Priceless Pooches Stimulus Package." Now through August 31st, each adult dog age six months and older is available for just a $50 adoption fee.

"I don't think you can ever put a price tag on the love, joy and benefits of owning a pet," said Dr. Michael Blackwell, administrator of Young-Williams Animal Center. "However, we know many families are on a budget, and we want to inform the community on the value provided when you adopt from your local shelter."

Adoption fees include a physical exam, spay/neuter surgery, DAPP and Kennel Cough vaccinations, heartworm test and one-month of heartworm prevention, standard deworming, one-month of flea prevention, nail trim and ear cleaning, and a microchip with registration. The average value of these services for each spayed or neutered adult dog is about $645.

For families or individuals who are considering pet adoption, Blackwell encourages them to visit Young-Williams Animal Center and Young-Williams Animal Village.

"If you're considering pet adoption, please visit the animal center," Blackwell said. "We surely have your new best friend waiting."

Young-Williams Animal Center reminds the community to please spay and neuter your pets.

The Young-Williams Animal Center is the official animal shelter for Knox County and the City of Knoxville. The center is a nonprofit organization, community-supported through public and private donations, that turns no animal away and is dedicated to the sheltering and placement of animals, general animal welfare, and public education of companion animal issues.

Young-Williams Animal Center is located off Sutherland Avenue at the entrance to John Tarleton Park at 3201 Division St. and is open Monday-Saturday from 11 a.m.-6 p.m. and Sunday from 1-6 p.m. Young-Williams Animal Village is located at 6400 Kingston Pike adjacent to Deane Hill Drive and offers animal adoptions seven days a week from noon-6 p.m.
