Atlantic Animal Shelter reminds adoptive pet owners to spay or neuter animals

The Atlantic Animal Shelter is reminding persons who have adopted pets from the shelter, that they must spay or neuter the animal, as your adoption form indicates. Shelter officials say it’s a State mandates when animals are adopted out. The Shelter says State officials have visited the shelter and found many adoption forms have not been not been returned, stating that the animal has been spayed or neutered. Officials say if the forms are not returned by the end of the month, they could lose their ability to adopt-out the animals, which would mean all animals not claimed by their owners would face euthanization.

Since no one wants that to happen, the Atlantic Animal Shelter is asking you to return your animal adoption paperwork to the shelter, so they are in compliance with State regulations, and so you can receive your $20 rebate. If you have any questions, call the Shelter at 712-243-2287.
