DeKalb County Animal Services opened a new facility in Chamblee.

The new $10 million shelter is located at 3280 Chamblee Dunwoody Rd., Chamblee, GA 30341, near the DeKalb Peachtree Airport. Occupying more than five acres, the building can hold more than 400 animals and is home to a new surgery room, lab area, clinic, 12 adoption rooms and several play yards.

“This shelter has been a long time coming,” Commissioner Kathie Gannon said. “Working on an animal shelter has been one of my goals throughout all my years [on the commission]. It takes a lot of work and funding, but when we do it, we do it right.”

“When I was first elected, the first people who wanted to meet with me were the Animal Advisory Board,” Commissioner Nancy Jester said.

Gannon echoed that sentiment, saying that “the people in the red shirts [on the Animal Advisory Board] came to every meeting we had, and eventually even started holding their own press conferences.”

Now, stray cats and dogs will have not only a home, but also a “sanctuary” in DeKalb County.

You can support the dogs and cats at DeKalb Animal Services by shopping their Amazon wish list.

Be careful with your pets

Gwinnett County has had five bear sightings so far this year.

Suwanee resident Colleen Gardner spotted a black bear in the backyard of her Royal Oak Estates subdivision home on Sunday evening. The fuzzy creature was hanging out near — and on — her bird feeder.

“He stayed for about 15 minutes and headed toward Johnson Road,” Gardner said.

Gardner’s is the fifth known Gwinnett bear sighting this summer.

Two separate homeowners in Buford reported seeing bears days apart in late June, not long after Gwinnett police were captured on video trying to wrangle a bear in Norcross. Earlier in the summer, a resident in the Charleston Bay neighborhood in Duluth shared a video with the Daily Post and said the same bear visited the same home twice.

Coyotes are causing problems in Augusta.

“We used to notice them, but now they’re beginning to come out a little bit more than what they were in the beginning,” [Augusta Municipal Golf Course] general manager Ira Miller said. “A lot of people have said they’ve seen dogs out here, I’ve heard everything from a dog to a fox.”

Coyotes are not native to Georgia and began making a home in the Southeast as early as the 1970s, said Mark Whitney, the Georgia Department of Natural Resources assistant director of Wildlife Resources.

By the mid-’90s, the omnivorous predators had populated all 159 Georgia counties. Though widespread, Whitney doesn’t believe they pose as much of a threat as the public thinks.

“People see them as a nuisance. It’s more of a potential individual perception issue,” he said. “Obviously if they show up in someone’s backyard, they’ll have concerns.”

When they showed up at neighboring Daniel Field Airport, Augusta Aviation was more than concerned. Wildlife on the runways can create hazardous conditions for pilots when they are attempting to take off or land.
