We rescued Momma Beanie from dire circumstances, and we were so very lucky she was a great mom to these little peanuts! Each pup is under 5 pounds and cute as a button!!
They are friendly and love to play with their toys and like to spend time with the rest of the family (human and dog). Their mom is a 30 pound mottled beagle mix with dachshund type legs. There are four males and four females. The males (except Scrappy the smallest pup) all have longer legs and will be bigger dogs than the females (they all have body shapes similar to their mom). They are a very sweet group of pups!
This trio was rescued from Fulton County, where all attempts were made to capture their feral momma to keep the family together – Unfortunately mom has evaded all attempts, but we had to get these babies to safety! They are just wrapping up their quarantine period, and will be ready for adoption at the end of September.!
Each of these little nuggets has been vetted, loved up and is super sweet! We’ve never seen the mom, but according to reports she appears to be a Border Collie mix, and of medium size. We expect roughly the same from this pack.
Fern is a loving, quiet, easy-going girl. She would love to sit by you on the porch or couch. She would blossom with lots of love and one-on-one attention! Come check her out at Petco in Peachtree City, Ga on Saturdays from 12:30 -4. Fern and our volunteers would love to see you!!
Chance is a cute, lovable ball of kisses and energy. Prepare to take a chance on Chance. You won’t regret the love and kisses he has to share!
Martin was born in late February with all his other siblings. They are currently in foster and are looking for loving homes!
Amy Renea’s mom was a yellow lab and her dad was a bloodhound. A mixture of these two breeds makes our Amy a loveable dog that could find a needle in a haystack.
Amy is a very smart 21-pound pup that walks well on a leash, but she does love to track. Her birthday is February 23, 2017. Amy Renea loves massages! She knows sit and is working on other commands. Amy would not fare well in an apartment – she needs her exercise and a place to sniff ‘til her heart’s content. If Amy sounds like a good fit for you, please call Save A Pet at 478-994-3882 now.
Chaps is a Jack Russell Terrier mix that is smart, attentive and relaxed. He loves scratches, massages and slow strolls down the street. Chaps would make the perfect cuddle bug.
Chaps rarely has something to say, but when he does it’s for a good reason. He thinks it’s his job to protect and be vigil. Chaps is learning sit and heel. With a little practice, he could ace obedience training. He doesn’t pull on the leash and isn’t much of a jumper. Chaps was born around April 14, 2017. He weighs about 25 pounds and is good with kids and our Save A Pet puppies! Come and spend time with Chaps. He’s waiting for his forever home.
Maybelle is friendly and sweet and loves everyone.
Hurricane Irma resulted in above-average numbers of dog and cat intakes at the DeKalb County Animal Service Shelter.
The facility has about 575 pets (430 dogs, 145 cats), LifeLine said in a news release.
“To encourage adoptions, we are holding a September promotion at all of our LifeLine shelters, including DCAS, where all cats and all dogs over 25 lbs. may be adopted for only $40, including their spay/neuter, microchip and vaccines,” the release said.
Meet Jazz! This happy six year old is 100% cuddlebug. She loves belly rubs, having the occasional bout of zoomies, and relaxing in the sun. Jazz seems to get along with everyone and greets every new person she meets politely. She can be a little shy at first, but her tail never stops wagging. Jazz is perfectly fine to rest on her bed while you are watching TV and doesn’t seem to mind when she is left alone. She has done well with other dogs here at the shelter and doesn’t seem to mind kitties either. If you are looking for a well-rounded, silly, calm pup – come meet Jazz at LifeLine’s DeKalb Animal Services!

The Gwinnett County Animal Shelter took in 61 animals that were evacuated during Irma.
County officials said 42 dogs and 19 cats were brought to Lawrenceville from the Glynn County animal shelter before Irma. The decision to bring them to Gwinnett came after Gov. Nathan Deal issued a mandatory evacuation order for counties along the Georgia coast.
The animals were originally taken to a temporary location in Lawrenceville, but Gwinnett officials have been transferring the animals steadily to the Gwinnett County Animal Welfare and Enforcement Center.
“The Gwinnett Animal Shelter was without power much of the week,” county spokesman Joe Sorenson said. “When the power was out, we were unable to open the facility to the general public, which reduced opportunities for people to adopt dogs and cats.
“Animal Welfare staff did work closely with rescue groups to place as many animals as possible. The shelter is open again and people have an opportunity to come and adopt a new pet.”
Residents who are interested in adopting one of the evacuated dogs or cats can visit the animal shelter at 884 Winder Highway in Lawrenceville. County officials said they are moving the animals from their temporary home to the Animal Welfare and Enforcement Center steadily as space in the shelter allows.
