Reduced adoption fees on Labs

Celebrate Labor Day with a Lab! From Friday, Aug. 29, through Monday, Sept. 1, 2014 adoption fees for adult and senior dogs who are Labradors or lab mixes at Young Williams Animal Center will be reduced. Community members will be able to adopt adults for $37.50 and seniors for $25.

Every adopted animal receives the same services covered by the regular adoption fees, which include a veterinary physical exam, spay/neuter surgery, some standard vaccinations, a microchip with registration and more. The adoption prices will be available at Young-Williams Animal Center at 3201 Division St., off Sutherland Avenue, and the Young-Williams Animal Village at 6400 Kingston Pike on Bearden Hill.

In 2013, Labradors and lab mixes accounted for 9 percent of the dog intake at Young-Williams, which made them the second-highest breed behind pit bull terriers and pit mixes.
