Adoptable Georgia Dogs for June 17, 2014

Lilly

Lilly is a sweet 4 month old pup who makes me think of a Vizsla, and  who came into the shelter underweight and riddled with fleas and worms. The vet has treated her, but she is still recovering from her ordeal and would love to do so with a rescue or foster. She is very sweet and as you can see from her bow in this picture, really wants to play despite everything she’s been though. Lilly is available for adoption or foster from DeKalb County Animal Shelter in Decatur, GA. A shelter is a very unhealthy place for a puppy.

To foster: volunteer@dekalbanimalservices.com

Adoptable Georgia Dogs for June 16, 2014

Sweetie

Sweetie is a Female Australian Cattle Dog (Blue Heeler) mix; 2-3 years old; Fully Vetted/spayed; 45 lbs.; Heart worm (+) on the Direct Test, not tested on the Occult Test.

It is obvious why the shelter staff gave this loving girl her name. Sweetie is very affectionate and loves nothing more than to be cuddled! She walks well on a leash and is a favorite of our volunteer dog walkers. Sweetie is available for adoption from McIntosh County Animal Shelter in Darien, Ga. Call Jennifer Wrenn, MCAS Shelter Director, at 912-437-4242 for additional information on Sweetie.

Dakota

Dakota is a Female Shepherd mix; 35-40 lbs., 10 months old; fully vetted/spayed; and HEARTWORM NEGATIVE.

Dakota is a Special Needs dog because she is extremely timid. Despite the fact she’s been in our shelter for almost nine months, her socialization progress is unusually slow. She came into MCAS as a Stray Pickup on the first day of September, 2013, with four sisters, and she is the only pup who has not yet found her forever home. The litter had obviously had little to no human interaction and of the five girls, Dakota has been the most difficult to overcome her lack of socialization. She has come a long way but is still not truly confident when she’s taken out for exercise by HART’s faithful volunteer dog walkers.

Dakota is available for adoption from HART of McIntosh County (Humane Animal Resource Team) in Darien, GA.

Yvette

Yvette is a female Hound mix, about 51 pounds and a little over a year old. She is fully vaccinated, Yvette unfortunately tested Heartworm positive, but has been on the slow kill method since 9/27/13. She is a beautiful girl with lots of personality. She loves to run and play, is very high energy and is learning to walk on a leash. Yvette is available for adoption from HART of McIntosh County (Humane Animal Resource Team) in Darien, GA.

Adoptable Georgia Dogs and Cats for June 10, 2014

photo 1

A crazy cat lady friend found two kittens and asked for our help in finding them homes. From her email:

My best guess is 5ish weeks old. They are eating wet and dry food and are hardly skittish at all anymore. The first one has more pink on its nose and hazel eyes, the second one has darker blue eyes but other than that pretty much identical. They are atill very tiny — I can cup my hands together to hold a whole cat. Free to a good home, will drive within reasonable distance from Ball Ground.

Henry County Dog SM

This dog, who looks like a Hound to me, was found stray in Henry County. According to the Good Samaritan who took him in, he is super sweet, very calm, seems submissive to dogs but is way too interested in cats.

He is not fixed, and seems good with dogs and wants to play.  He is very interested in cats – he has not been aggressive in any way just very playful.  He is maybe 1 year or less.  Maybe weighs 40lbs.  He doesn’t seem to have been worked with.  He doesn’t chase a ball, but does throw a stick in the air.  He does not know basic commands.  He is super people friendly.  He was found in parking lot of American pie and gas station in locust grove.  I put signs up and posted on Facebook but have heard nothing so far.  We are taking him to vet tomorrow so I may have more information for you.

The person who found him is seeking his owners, or a new home; they can host him for a couple days, but can’t have him stay permanently because of their cats.

If you’re interested in adopting or fostering this boy, email me and I’ll put you in touch.

Angel and Cody

Angel and Cody need an immediate foster! Both dogs are fully vetted. Angel is a senior pit/lab mix and Cody is a young pit mix. Both are super sweet! They are in Atlanta at the moment, but we can arrange transport anywhere. This is an emergency, please help if you can! Call Carrie at Dixie Dog Rescue, 912-537-9307, if you can foster or adopt.

This time of year, shelters are overflowing, and even puppies are being euthanized regularly because they’re out of space. If you’re unable to make a lifetime commitment today, but want to help and would be willing to foster a puppy or adult dog, consider Angels Among Us as a foster placement agency (they also help cats). These sweet little pups were rescued by Angels and need foster homes.

Angel Puppies

Fostering through a rescue group can also be great for folks on a limited income, as most foster agencies pay for the vetting and your only costs are kibble – some even provide dog food. Click here to learn more about fostering a dog or cat through Angels Among Us.

Yesterday’s edition of Adoptable Georgia dogs also includes four sweet dogs who need a home as their owner is moving into a senior care facility. If you’d like to help them stay out of a shelter, where they would likely be euthanized, take a look at these beauties and email me to be put in touch.

They are all spayed, up-to-date on medication and vetting, and living together happily, so they get along well with humans and with other dogs. The descriptions were written by a person who knows the dogs and is trying to find them a home.

Angie

Angie is a Black Lab mix female who is very active and loves to run. She likes to play and be loved and is quiet but protective. She is the baby of Babygirl.

Adoptable Georgia Dogs for June 9, 2014

StormyBarrow

Stormy is a 4-5 year old female Shepherd mix (I think possibly some hound in her too) who is terrified at the shelter and needs a new home. She is available for adoption immediately at the Barrow County Animal Shelter.

The rest of today’s dogs are currently in a private home but need foster or adoption offers this week to keep them from being taken to the shelter, where they’ll almost certainly be euthanized. Email me for contact information if you are interested in helping them out.

A lady in Gray, Georgia, near Macon is being forced to leave her home and go into senior living and cannot take her dogs. Each of these dogs was rescued by her and brought up in her home. They are all spayed, up-to-date on medication and vetting, and living together happily, so they get along well with humans and with other dogs. The descriptions were written by a person who knows the dogs and is trying to find them a home.

39480_640x480
39480 is a female coonhound who was found stray and is available for adoption from the Gwinnett County Animal Shelter.
She is friendly and beautiful. The GaPundit home office includes a coonhound adopted from the Gwinnett County Shelter and she’s an awesome dog. Very mellow and affectionate, loves other dogs and people. This is a great breed for active families, and they thrive if they get 30-60 minutes of outdoor activity every day. Perfect for the dog park, and the temperament of our dog is textbook coonhound.
39166
39166 is a female Shepherd mix with striking white-blue eyes. She is available for adoption today at the Gwinnett County Animal Shelter.
39231
39231 is a female, labeled a Shepherd mix, but I’m dubious of that. Looks more like a hound mix to me. She is available for adoption from the Gwinnett County Animal Shelter.

The Gwinnett County Animal Shelter is participating in the Rachael Ray $100k Challenge this month.

The $100K challenge is a contest in which 50 shelters across the country compete to break their own records saving the lives of animals. Throughout the months of June, July, and August 2014, each competing shelter must save more dogs, cats, puppies, and kittens than they did during the same three months in 2013. We look forward to all the animals that will benefit from this awesome challenge. Many, many more details to come so keep an eye out.

Marsha

Marsha is a female Golden Retriever mix who is available for adoption from the Albany Humane Society in Albany, Georgia.

Lenny
Lenny is a young male Schnoodle, a Schnauzer/Poodle mix, who weighs 12 pounds.

He is crate trained and just about housebroken. We would say 90% there – he could use a good schedule for a while longer and when he visits new places, he forgets to give signals. So just some patience and a good schedule and he will be good to go in no time! He is still a little bit of a puppy and needs to be reminded what are dog toys and what is okay to chew on. He isn’t destructive – just curious!

Lenny is a playful little guy and really likes to play with other dogs. He is a great balance of playful and laid back. He likes to play fetch or run around carrying toys, but he has also mastered the art of snuggling and loves that too!

He is happy to be friends with anyone and everything! He only needs a few short walks a day, and maybe some play time with toys. But he doesn’t require a lot of exercise.

Lenny is just an all-around low maintenance and wonderful dog – a great balance of cuteness, playfulness, and happiness. Lenny is available for adoption from Athens Canine Rescue in Athens, GA.

Lenny2
Edward

Edward is a young male Whippet with a striking brindle coat. Edward is a great dog that gets along with dogs, cats and kids. Very smart boy that trains easily. Knows basic commands. Edward is available for adoption from ACT Animal Rescue of Valdosta/Lowndes in Naylor, GA.

Some truly beautiful and well-behaved dogs at Barrow County Animal Shelter are pleading for their lives today – unless they are spoken for with paperwork by 4 PM today, they will be euthanized tomorrow morning.
