Animal Contol hosting pet adoption fair

JONESBORO — Animal lovers will have a chance to rescue dogs and cats from possible death this weekend.

Clayton County Animal Control will host a Pet Adoption Fair Saturday from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. at the shelter, 1396 Government Circle in Jonesboro. The shelter, which euthanizes animals who are brought in and are not claimed by their owners and cannot be adopted, is offering a $25 discount on adoptions for the event.

Officials are warning potential adopters that certain breeds unsuitable for adoption will not be included in the fair. Free hot dogs, chips and sodas will be served to attendees.
