Young-Williams Animal Center Receives Donation to Sponsor Adult Pet Adoptions
Young-Williams Animal CenterSeptember 1, 2009 - Young-Williams Animal Center has received a $10,000 anonymous donation to sponsor adult dog and cat adoptions.

With a $75 adoption fee per adult animal, the donation will sponsor 133 adult dog or cat adoptions.

"We are overwhelmed by the generosity of this anonymous donor," said Tim Adams, executive director of Young-Williams Animal Center. "We've taken in an unprecedented number of animals recently, and this donation will help us find homes for dozens of adoptable cats and dogs. Adult animals are often the most difficult to adopt out, and this opportunity offers an incentive for people to consider the benefits of bringing an adult cat or dog into their home."

Once all 133 animals find homes through this donation, the donor plans to give another $10,000 to sponsor more adoptions.

The Young-Williams Animal Center is the official animal shelter for Knox County and the city of Knoxville. The center is a nonprofit organization that turns no animal away and is dedicated to the sheltering and placement of animals, general animal welfare, and public education of companion animal issues.

The Young-Williams Animal Center is conveniently located just off Sutherland Avenue at the entrance to John Tarleton Park at 3201 Division St. in Knoxville. The center is 8/10th of a mile from the intersection of Kingston Pike and Neyland Drive/Concord Street and offers animals for adoption Monday through Friday, 11 a.m.-7 p.m., Saturday, 11 a.m.-5 p.m., and Sunday, 1-5 p.m.

For more information about Young-Williams Animal Center, including detailed driving directions, call 865-215-6599 or visit http://www.knoxpets.org.
