Adoption Days – SOAPS joins with the Vidalia Animal Control division to offer at least two special adoption weekends each year. An Adopt-a-thon sponsored by the North Shore Animal League is held each May, and the HOME 4 the Holidays event sponsored by the Helen Woodward Animal Center is held during December. During these two weekends, SOAPS provides financial assistance for families wishing to adopt a pet from the Vidalia Animal Control Shelter by paying $20 of the normal $45 adoption fee. We also provide a voucher of up to $100 to be applied toward cost of spay/neuter at participating veterinary facilities. We have Foster Showcases as often as possible, as well.
Adoption of one of SOAPS special Foster Babies is $100.00 for a puppy or dog and $50.00 for a kitten or cat. This includes all shots and the spay/neuter of the animal. These pets have been socialized in loving homes and will make someone a great companion. If interested in a Foster Pet, phone: Holly @ 912 539-9840 or Marla @ 912 245-0993.
