Grayson Subaru sponsors adoption special

Thanks to a sponsorship from Grayson Subaru, Young-Williams Animal Village will offer “Sweetheart Deals” to help pets find forever homes on Valentine’s Day weekend.

Adoption fees for adult and senior pets at Young-Williams Animal Village, 6400 Kingston Pike on Bearden Hill, will be reduced to $25 on Saturday and Sunday, Feb. 13-14. The village will be open noon to 6 p.m. on both days.

“We see adoption numbers dip in February,” said Jeff Ashin, Young-Williams Animal Center CEO.  “Partnerships like this one with Grayson Subaru allow us to reduce our fees to help find forever homes for more animals. Valentine’s Day is a perfect time to find a pet companion, and we hope to see a lot of our community members at the village throughout the weekend.”

Grayson Subaru chose to sponsor the promotion because of its passion for animal welfare and alignment with the company’s national brand. Subaru supports animal adoption efforts across the country.

“We believe in Young-Williams Animal Center’s mission and want the best possible homes for the animals in our community,” said Randy Carter, Grayson Subaru sales manager. “We especially wanted to help early in the year to help drive traffic to the shelter.”

Every adopted animal will receive the services usually covered by the regular fees, which include veterinary physical exam, spay/neuter surgery, some standard vaccinations, microchip with registration and more. The regular fees range from $50 to $100.
