SHELTER SENDS ANIMALS TO ATLANTA

SAVANNAH, GA. (March 24, 2014): Approximately half of the dogs and a few cats housed at the Savannah-Chatham County Metropolitan Police Department Animal Shelter will be on their way to new homes Tuesday when they are transferred to the Atlanta Humane Society.

The Atlanta Society will absorb the cost of transferring the animals where new owners are expected to be found. Metro will be reimbursed for the cost of testing and vaccination of the approximately 30 dogs and 11 cats and kittens.

The Atlanta Society has partnered with Metro in the past and officials there heard that the Savannah shelter had a large number of animals.

“This truly was a humane effort by the Atlanta Society and we certainly appreciate their thoughts and efforts,” said Lt. Cary Hill who oversees the Animal Control Unit. “Our partners have helped us save untold numbers of animals.”

The Atlanta Humane Society transport bus is expected to be loaded at 11 a.m.
