Animal Shelter debuts 'wrapped' trailer, bringing pets to the public

Want to adopt a pet but don't have time to travel to your nearby shelter? Well, your future furry friend can now travel right to you!

The Hall County Animal Shelter's mobile adoption trailer will travel to sites in Hall County and beyond, bringing adorable, adoptable pets in every shape, size and color.

"We hope this trailer will make the adoption process easier for potential pet owners by bringing the animals to community events and other public places," said Cindy Langman, program coordinator for the Hall County Animal Shelter. "This will also give the pets an opportunity to interact with the public and receive some much needed love and attention."

The 20-foot trailer, which was donated by Animal Shelter supporter Gail Ciccione, can hold approximately 12 animals at a time and is climate controlled for the safety and comfort of the animals it holds.

Langman said the trailer was "wrapped" using the logo and photos of animals that were adopted from the Shelter and taken by volunteer photographer Billy Grimes. Funding for the project came from proceeds raised during the Harvest Balloon Festival, Sterling on the Lake's annual fundraiser which benefits the Animal Shelter.

"Outfitting our mobile adoption unit will help the community easily identify our transport trailer, bringing greater awareness to our overall mission and presence," she said.

Langman also thanked the developer of Sterling on the Lake, Newland Communities, for their generous donation as well as the attendees at the Harvest Balloon Festival.

"Because of you, the opportunities for our animals to find loving homes will drastically increase," she said.
