He seems like an active boy who would not only be an awesome workout buddy, but a great cuddle buddy too! He gets along great with other dogs and probably wouldn’t mind having a dog friend in his new home. His adoption fee includes his neuter, vaccinations, microchip, and more!

Demodex mange is considered non-contagious and is usually treated with getting the dog into a home, which helps their immune system strengthen and fight better and anti-parasitic Ivermectin. It’s not at all difficult to deal with in a dog.

Sunshine

Sunshine is an young adult male Labrador Retriever mix, a longtime resident of the CSRA Humane Society. Found many years ago as a stray puppy (alongside his brother and his mom), our sunny boy is a bit on the shy side. He’ll greet most strangers with a bark and a retreat, but if you take the time to get to know him first, you will gain his trust and have a friend forever. Once he feels safe, he’s more than happy to sit next to you so you can stroke his head and pull on his ears. Sunshine is a bit selective with regards to doggy companions (he prefers submissive female dogs best).

Sunshine is available for adoption from CSRA Humane Society, Inc. in Augusta, GA.

She is a bit too interested in the kitties, so best in a home without them. She is a herding breed, so does like to herd the young children when they’re running.

She absolutely LOVES to fetch. She will do just about anything to get that tennis ball, especially one that squeaks! Once she sees one in your hand, she’ll automatically sit on her back legs waiting for it to be thrown ?

Alejandro

Alejandro is a 16-pound, three-year old adult male Pomeranian & Pekingese Mix who is available for adoption from Hickory Level Hound Rescue in Carrollton, GA.

So far in his foster home, Alejandro has been happy but somewhat timid. He likes to explore and does so with a wagging tail, however he seems to be very alert. He will likely settle in some with time, so we will update once that happens. He is fine with other dogs his size or smaller, but has not spent any time with cats or been tested with human children yet.

Clara

Clara is a baby Hound and Terrier mix girl, about fourteen weeks old, who is available for adoption from Hickory Level Hound Rescue in Carrollton, GA.

Clara went straight to a foster home after her vet care was completed and they report that she is an absolute cuddle bug!! She does however, love to play. She has a favorite soft toy that she will fetch over and over. She is intelligent and not overly energetic or destructive at this point. Her attention span is short right now, but that should change as she matures.

She is doing ok with crate training and has just begun leash walking. It is slow going, but that is mostly due to her age.

Both hounds and terrier, especially those of bully descent are extremely intelligent BUT both are also VERY stubborn!! An experienced adopter would be fantastic!!

Her foster group believes that she will be a medium sized dog when fully grown….probably between 30 and 55 pounds. Her ideal home would have a fenced in yard.

Nell

Nell is a 4-year old female Redbone Coonhound who is receiving treatment for a mild heartworm case and is available for adoption from Southeast Bloodhound Rescue in Carrollton, GA.

Shadow

Adoptable Georgia Dogs for June 24, 2015

All dogs are urgent at the Gwinnett County Animal Shelter due to overcrowding, high continuing intake, and the usual summer population explosion. If you’ve been considering adopting or fostering, this is a great time to save a life.

Urgent Dogs Gwinnett

Champ and Justin

Gwinnett 45423

ID number 45423 at the Gwinnett County Animal Shelter is a sweet 3-month old Border Collie mix female puppy.

Gwinnett 45446

ID number 45446 at the Gwinnett County Animal Shelter is a 3-year old Terrier mix female.

Gwinnett45434

Gwinnett County Animal Shelter #45434 is a 5-year old male Pomeranian.


 

Gwinnett County Commissioners amended a new dog-tethering ordinance that prohibits tethering a dog outside unless the owner is also outside and within sight of the tethered dog.

Commission Chairman Charlotte Nash said it was the advocates’ “polite persistence” that won her over to their side.

“We are so grateful you brought the issue back up,” said one resident, Jennifer Summers. “I certainly applaud you.”

Commissioners also tabled a proposal to ease restrictions on chickens in residential areas.

The Board of Commissioners had been expected to make a decision on revising the county’s livestock ordinance this week, after the Planning Commission recommended its approval with conditions. After a half-hour of debate between residents, however, Commissioner Tommy Hunter asked his colleagues to table the matter so it could be vetted more thoroughly.

Hunter said there were “valid concerns” raised on both sides of the debate. He initially sought to have it postponed until July 7, but later changed the date to July 21 because of a scheduling conflict Commissioner Jace Brooks had with the earlier date.

“That gives us (four) weeks to figure out where we want to go from there,” Hunter said.

The livestock ordinance was one of two law changes commissioners dealt with on Tuesday. They also passed changes to the county’s beekeeping law that makes it easier to engage in backyard beekeeping.

Andor, a 13-year old German Shepherd who served with the Lawrenceville Police Department beginning in 2005 was laid to rest.

On Andor’s day, he had dozens of police officers from around Gwinnett and Barrow counties and other officials, including Lawrenceville Mayor Judy Jordan Johnson, turn out to send him off.

And he had a grassy plot among other dogs in a small, gated section of the cemetery off Harbins Road.

And he had a funeral flag, like a soldier.

Two officers, in full dress uniforms, folded it into a triangle. Corso, down on one knee, his head bowed, presented it to the Humphreys, like a soldier’s family.

Funding for a new DeKalb County Animal Shelter is a heated topic. From the Brookhaven Post,

The hot topic of the night was the building of a new DeKalb County Animal Shelter. Back in December, the DeKalb County Board of Commissioners (BOC) approved an RFP for Architectural and Engineering Design Consulting Services for a new DeKalb Animal Shelter, for an amount not to exceed $800,000. The BOC chose Jackson & Ryan Architects out of Houston, Texas as the Architectural and Design firm.

The proposed new facility will be approximately 40,000 square feet contained on 5.3 acres of land.

Attendees expressed their concerns to ICEO May that the facility will be obsolete from day one. “The animal shelter will not be large enough and will only add to the numbers of animals that are euthanized each year,” one woman told May. “Why would the County build something that it will only have to expand in the near future?”

Attendees stressed the practices and capacity should be the driver in designing this facility – not the budget. “We are never going to get this chance again. We are not asking for more than was originally allocated. It just needs to be designed to handle the capacity in the best humane fashion.”

DeKalb County Commissioner Nancy Jester (R-Dunwoody) released a statement on funding for the shelter.

I support DeKalb County building a new animal shelter which accommodates the number of dogs for whom we need to provide shelter. For this to occur, it is essential we design a shelter which can safely house approximately 340 – 400 dogs.

I have and will continue to advocate for an appropriately sized facility that is congruent with my goals of fiscal responsibility and humane treatment of animals. We must also have a shelter with adequate capacity to meet our public health responsibilities.

In the County Operations and Public Safety (COPS) Committee, the Commissioners and Interim CEO instructed the design team to prepare a facility which can accommodate 340 – 400 dogs. As the design team continues to draft the animal shelter design, the COPS Committee will receive updates. After the design is finalized, the Board of Commissioners (BOC) will vote on funding the shelter as designed.

I support investment in capital assets rather than increasing the scope and size of county government through increases in employment liabilities. Investing in an appropriate animal shelter yields a better return on investment than allocating your tax dollars to bloated government functions.

I have heard from many taxpayers across our district. Together, we will work for a humane animal shelter which is appropriate in design to serve our needs, care for the animals, and respect our tax dollars.
