But Giddens is working this fall to provide the easiest, and most economical way, to not only fetch animals off the streets but to also make sure that offspring prevention can be provided through spaying and neutering.
Starting with her Scratch & Dent program, when coming to the Jones County Animal Control, just north of Gray on Highway 129 at 395 Eatonton Highway, there will be no charge for adoption of animals that have special needs. These would be animals that may have a handicap, a permanent limp or maybe just a crooked smile. And with free adoption also comes a certificate to take your new friend to the vet and receive a free spay or neuter. While the cages are normally full, she sees these types of canines and felines being a bit more difficult to get into a home.
For those specifically looking for a kitty to enjoy, Giddens is offering her program Free Cat Friday any Friday between 9 and 1. There will be no adoption charge to pick out a wonderful friend that can be taken home to share with the family.
And as Giddens says, “Oh yes, it’s free.”
