Floyd County PAWS (Public Animal Welfare Services) remains open to the public with no appointment necessary. Jeff Mitchell, Director, encourages all local animal lovers to visit the facility, located at 99 North Avenue in Rome, as there are many fur babies currently in need of a good home. Every visitor is ask to wear a mask and to practice social distancing in order to prevent the spread of coronavirus.
The adoption process starts with an application through which potential pet owners are matched with their potentially perfect pets, asserts Mitchell, who urges adopters to be patient with the process since it takes time.
The cost to adopt is $35 for each cat or kitten and $40 per dog or puppy. That covers sterilization, vaccination, and microchipping, adds Mitchell.
It was announced on Tuesday that PAWS will be among the chosen few to participate in this year’s Pet Adoption Day at the Governor’s Mansion, set for Sunday, October 24th from 2 pm until 5 pm. This will be the fourth annual Pet Adoption Day and Georgia Grown Festival, in which PAWS will participate for its first time.
