Adoptable Georgia Dogs for January 14, 2016

Today’s adoptable dogs all come from Retired Retrievers in Savannah, GA.

Rex Retriever

Rex is a very sweet senior Labrador Retriever male who is available for adoption from Retired Retrievers in Savannah, GA. Rex has had a rough life and is now looking for a home where he can enjoy his retirement years. We’re not sure if he has dementia or has a bit of reduced mental capacity due to abuse he suffered (his previous owner shot him with a BB gun and we’re not sure what else happened to him in his life). He is still a wonderful dog with a lot of love left to give. Rex gets along with other dogs and cats.

Duck Retriever

Duck is a senior male Labrador Retriever who is available for adoption through Retired Retrievers in Savannah, GA.

Duck was saved on his last day at the shelter by someone who was there to pick up another dog. She saw him and just couldn’t let this handsome guy’s life end there. Now she is looking for someone to adopt him (or a rescue to take him in) to make sure he gets the love and care that he so deserves. Please consider opening up your heart and home to this sweet older guy. Duck is in Thomasville, GA. We are happy to help transport within Georgia, Florida and South Carolina. For more information about Duck, email [email protected] and we will put you in touch with his rescuer.

DJ Greenbeans

DJ Greenbeans is a senior male Labrador Retriever who is available for adoption from Retired Retrievers in Savannah, GA.

This handsome 13-year old ended up in a shelter because his 92-year old mom has Alzheimer’s and was no longer able to care for him. When none of her relatives were willing or able to care for him either, he found himself homeless. DJ gets along with other dogs and cats. He could stand to lose a few pounds and needs a home without a lot of steps. He is a very sweet old man!

DeKalb County Animal Shelter Moves Forward

Yesterday, the DeKalb County Board of Commissioners voted to move forward and approve the contract to build a new animal shelter near Peachtree-DeKalb Airport. From Commissioner Nancy Jester,

“I was proud to stand with so many across DeKalb who lead the way advocating for our animals. Because of your leadership, hard work, and dedication the new DeKalb County animal shelter is now a reality.”

“I am thankful for this important development on the path to completing the new shelter. This action is a testament to the efforts of the dedicated animal advocates whose consistent, determined, and inspired work created the success we saw today. DeKalb’s current shelter is in deplorable conditions.”

“Having a healthy building for the workers and animals, that can adequately meet the capacity requirements, has been a capital improvement that DeKalb has needed for many years. Thankfully, we now know where the shelter will be and who will build it.”

“The construction contract was awarded to Reeves & Young Construction onTuesday. The Board of Commissioners deferred the decision of the fundingsource for. The Board is currently reviewing the 2016 budget and will makea determination about the most appropriate source of funding as we review and finalize the budget. We are working to best determine whether to use accumulated cash reserves or Certificates of Participation (COPs).”

“I look forward to a positive and united solution to the payment method. However, the important news is we are moving forward with our new shelter.”
