The Byron, Georgia Animal Shelter has filled up and will begin putting dogs down to free up space.
As the city of Byron has grown, so have the number of calls to animal control. Now the city’s animal shelter is at capacity and shelter personnel are working to find a solution.
“Once we have the dogs here we’ll house and feed them. We’re supposed to give it seven days,” said Byron Animal Control’s Clay Fauquier.
But for the dogs sitting in Byron’s animal shelter, their days are numbered.
“Right now people are not adopting because they’re going on vacation and they’re kids are getting out of school,” said volunteer Regina Brahvam.
So they’ve got seven days to find a new home and Fauquier–who runs the shelter–says there’s a catch to that if they don’t.
“It’s at the point now, if I get another dog in here today, which word on the street is I’m about to, I’m full and I have to find somewhere to put them.”
If you’re considering a new family dog, please think about saving one of these sweet souls. If you’re interested in fostering one of the dogs, please contact Regenia at 478-293-2066. If you’d like to adopt, please contact the shelter via Facebook, call (478) 662-4161 or visit the shelter.
Without a care in the world this girl is always happy. Not to mention how smart she is. Within seconds of meeting her she was doing commands, sit, down and stay. She also waits tell she is let out of her kennel to go potty!
When she was taken to the vet to get her stitches, she climbed in all the laps available in the waiting room.
The second she is brought out of the kennel she wonders over to you as if to say, “Whats the point, no one will love me” She sits with her head tucked into your lap hoping you will stay and pet her. Please call 478-293-2066 if you’re interested in helping save her.
With eyes like hers, how could you not want to scoop her up and take her home. This sweet girl goes right to the gate as soon as she is let out of the kennel. She knows the shelter is not the place for any dog to be.
She takes a few minutes to warm up, but it is worth sitting with her to see glimpses of her personality shine through the fear and worry of the unknown. Please help us help her.
Contact 478-293-2066 if you are interested in taking the worry off this sweet girls face and giving her a loving home.
