Adoptable Georgia Dogs for March 27, 2015

BarrowChocLab

This happy and friendly young male Chocolate Labrador Retriever mix appears to be dog-friendly and kid-friendly, as well as housebroken. He is available for adoption from Barrow County Animal Shelter in Winder, Ga.

Coastal Pet Rescue in Savannah, whose dogs I featured yesterday, is raising money to wipe out more than $13,000 in vet bills, much of which was incurred when they took in a litter of puppies who broke with parvo and required emergency treatment. You can donate online to help them out or buy one of their t-shirts.

Finally, Coastal Pet Rescue is holding a “Survivor”-style fundraiser in conjunction with the opening of their new small animal center. The fundraiser will be from 12 PM on Saturday, May 2nd to 12 PM on May 3rd at their Camp Pawsawhile Retreat in Savannah. There will be “challenges,” some team, some individuals. They plan to start with 14 contestants and be down to 7 people by the evening who will have to raise funds (we will have online pages for donations) through social media or phone in order to avoid having to spend the night in one of the dog kennels (we have 7 runs as part of the shelter).

Let me know by email if you’d be interested in participating as part of a GaPundit team in this event.

Cora

Cora is a 1.5 year old Basset Hound mix who was surrendered to animal control with 14 other dogs. I’m going out on a limb and guessing her Dad was a Black Lab. Cora is pregnant and will be available for adoption after her puppies are born and are weaned from Coastal Pet Rescue in Savannah, GA.

Coastal Pet Rescue is an all-volunteer 501(c)(3) non-profit animal rescue organization, founded in February 2003, based in Savannah, Georgia dedicated to saving the lives of homeless, abused and neglected dogs and cats in the Coastal Empire Savannah and surrounding areas.

I’ve said this before, but neither GaPundit nor I make any money in any way from the promotion of dog adoption and rescue, no commissions or kickbacks from your donations, and we spend a good bit of money ourselves donating to dog rescue groups every year.

Maggie

She is also housebroken, spayed, vaccinated, had a dental exam, and is HW neg. She is SO lazy that sometimes her foster dad has to carry her outside to go potty. All she requires is a spot next to you on the couch and a hand to pet her. Surely someone has room to give this girl a forever home! Her adoption fee is waived to an approved adopter. Maggie is available for adoption from Baldwin County Animal Control in Milledgeville, GA.

Moira

Moira is a young female Black Labrador mix with an adorable personality! She’s approximately 40 pounds and a year old. This girl was very timid when she came to the shelter and would often crawl on her belly. She’s now a happy, outgoing girl! She is dog friendly, but can be a bit selective with some other females. She walks great on a leash and is a VERY loving girl! Moira is available for adoption from Baldwin County Animal Control in Milledgeville, GA.

Adoptable Georgia Dogs for March 19, 2014

The following dogs are all cared for by Adopt a Golden Atlanta, though they needs foster homes. We’ve previously adopted from AGA and they are the gold standard for breed specific dog rescue in my book.

AGAClara
I got lost but lucky for me AGA came and signed me up to be an orphan. It’s a good thing too, because my new doctor says I need medicine to get rid of things called heartworms. You can’t just wish them away – you have to have $500 dollars to buy the medicine. I’m kind of scared and worried because I don’t have any money and I think the shots they give you will hurt! It would take away one of my worries if I could find an AGA angel with $500 in their pocket that they wouldn’t mind giving me. And what a relief it was that an AGA angel swooped down and sent AGA the money! Thank you Agnieszka Wesolowski. I love you. I guess there is nothing to be done about getting shots that hurt but I am just going to squint my eyes and hold my breath and think about something else. After all, to be healthy is worth it isn’t it? I am maybe 7 years old and have already learned good house manners besides liking other dogs and kids. I am a medium size girl -not too big and not too small. And everyone says I am a sweet, easy going golden I would LOVE a new home just as soon as possible so why not give AGA a call and ask about me? Lots of love, Clara.

AGA Charlie Doodle Dolly
We are each 7 years old and we are “brother and sister”. Of course you may have noticed that we don’t actually look much alike but we have always been together (since we were little puppies) so we feel related! We love each other so much and couldn’t get along without the other. Right now we are so sad to leave our home that if we didn’t have each other to lean on things would be even worse. Our family couldn’t take care of us anymore and it was very hard for all of us to have to separate but there was nothing else to be done. We are looking for a home together and AGA promised we would not be separated. We were relieved that there was some good news in all of this. Being with your very best friend makes you strong when everything feels sad. We are a healthy twosome who are very good at snuggling up to you! We have perfect house manners and love everybody and all animals. We know that with one of us on each side of you, then you will know exactly what it’s like to be loved! Your friends, Charlie and Dollie.

AGABarley

Well , you can’t miss me in a crowd! I am a BIG boy and I am only a year and a half old! Already my number on the weighing machine says 107 and my new doctor says that’s just right for me. My other family asked AGA to find me a new home because they said I was WAY too interested in getting all the food before anyone else did!! I’m kind of a “chewer” dog too-like when left with an unlucky collar or leash! I don’t know why I do that but maybe AGA can find a teacher who will help me stop. I like to play and have lots of energy and I like kids and big people and playing with dogs. I don’t like sharing food and it may be better for me to be in a “no other dogs” house and no cats because I like chasing them. I’m a healthy fellow and don’t mind staying in a crate (a big one) when I’m left alone. I also know some commands. So I am a good student when it comes to lessons and now I am going to concentrate on working on this food “thing”. You could call and ask how I am doing even though I’m not quite ready to move into a new family. I hope I can be your newest friend! Barley.

AGA Zac Zelda

We go together like jam and bread or maybe birds of a feather! That’s why we are looking for a home together and, thank goodness, that’s exactly what AGA is going to help us find. How exciting that we will be able to stay with each other! We are a boy and a girl doodle (or so we think) and only around 2 or 3 years old. We even got lost together and ended up in a shelter where the nice people helped AGA to rescue us. We look like twins and we try to be really sweet even though we might seem a little shy at first. My brother Zac is bigger than me (I guess that’s ’cause he’s a boy) and weighs number 45 but I am only number 36 so you can tell we won’t take up a lot of space. We are a healthy, happy pair and have all our toes (and that’s a lot) crossed that soon we will be part of a new family. Just call and ask about the “two peas in a pod” doodles! Love to everyone, Zac and Zelda.

Adoptable Georgia Dogs for March 18, 2015

When the Macon-Bibb County Animal Shelter was preparing to move into a new building, they thought it best to try to get all their dogs out and into forever homes rather than to move them, and so the pardons were started. Adoption fees have been lowered and all but these three (and three who are rescue-only) have found new homes.
Snickers

Snicker is a three-year old female with a golden brindle tint on her mainly-black coat. She’s kind of picky about being around other animals, so she’d probably be best as an only dog. Snickers is available for adoption from Macon-Bibb Animal Welfare 1010 Eleventh Street Macon, GA 31201 P: (478) 621-6791.

Muggs

Muggs is a young male red pit bill with white feet who prefers to be an only dog. He is available for adoption from Macon-Bibb Animal Welfare 1010 Eleventh Street Macon, GA 31201 P: (478) 621-6791.

Goldberg

Goldberg is a very sweet two-year old male red put bull who loves to play. He is available for adoption from Macon-Bibb Animal Welfare 1010 Eleventh Street Macon, GA 31201 P: (478) 621-6791.

Spot

When he escaped the chain, and they tried to catch him, he panicked and refused to cooperate. This guy is shy, loves men, and wants to know you well enough to cuddle. He knows sit, down, and “sit pretty”. Before his life on a chain he must have been indoors and loved. Spot is available for adoption from the Barrow County Animal Shelter; he is urgent and needs adoption papers filed no later than 4 PM today or he will be euthanized.
