Adoptable Georgia Dogs for April 18, 2014

Blondie

Blondie is a 1 year old female Peagle (Pekingese/Beagle mix). She is white and cream in color. She was recently turned into the rescue because her family was moving and not able to take her. She is very playful and energetic. Blondie would make a great companion to another dog and a wonderful dog for a child to grow up with. She is very sweet natured and has a sensitive side. She is working hard on potty and crate training and will just need someone to be consistent and patient in her training. Blondie is available for adoption from Canine Adoption Network in Ball Ground, Ga.

Wilbur

Wilbur is quite a cute and good looking little Pekingese male. Not only is he adorable with his new hairdo but in the before pictures, he is equally as adorable. He is approximately 2 years old and weighs 12#. Wilbur is extremely sweet and laid back. His personality is just coming out as he was just recently rescued from Animal Control. This lucky little boy was able to be placed in foster care and his personality keeps on blossoming and he is quite a happy little guy.  A fence is required. Wilbur is available for adoption from Pup & Cat Co. in Winder, Ga.

Pippy

Pippy is a sweet older female Pekingese/Dachshund mix looking for a retirement home! She has had a rough life at one point. When we got her she had skin infections, ear infections, chipped teeth, and was in pitiful shape. She is on her way to being healthy and ready for a new home. Pippy is heartworm postive but we have started treatment and would continue treating until well for an adopter. Either she has a very long, orange-striped tail, or cats don’t bother her. Not sure.

Pippy is available for adoption from Country Livin Pet Rescue in Monroe, GA.

VeteransK9Solutions

I can think of few missions more worthy of supporting today than Veterans K9 Solutions, which adopts dogs from shelter death rows, trains them as service dogs, and places them in home of veterans free of charge.

The founder’s van, which is equipped to safely transport the dogs, lost its transmission, and without repair will negatively impact the group’s mission. Normally a $2200 repair, local mechanics are donating their time and skills, but they’re asking for help to pay for roughly $500 in parts needed for the repair work.

Instead of that 48-shot super-espresso frappalatte, your donation of $25, $10, $5 or even $2 is a two-fer. You can save the lives of dogs, and also those of wounded veterans who need service dogs. If you’ve been saving money from whatever you gave up for Lent but havent’s decided where it will go, here’s your chance to help dogs and veterans in need.

Please click here to donate today!

Note that donation link is for the account of Dog Networking Agents, another rescue group that has volunteered to act as online processors for Veterans K9 Solutions. Please put “van” in the memo/content section so your donation gets to the right place.

You may also mail a check written to Veterans K9 Solutions to:

Taylor Bryant

1873 Engle Road

Augusta GA 30906

Any funds donated above and beyond the required parts cost will be given to the Veterans K9 Solutions group for their expenses in providing the gift of a trained service dog to our veterans in need.

SixPups

These six puppies were pulled from Barrow County Animal Shelter for transport to an out-of-state rescue but the other group pulled out. Dana’s Doghouse can take them in but needs help with the vetting fees, which will be substantial given the requirement for six spay/neuters and two sets of shot each, so they’re asking for donations to help cover these costs.

You may send a donation via PayPal to [email protected] or mail a check or money order to:

DanasDogHouse
3496 Lakeshore Drive
Smyrna, GA 30082

Evelyn (middle, above) oozes serenity and unconditional love. She is quiet, well balanced, requires no crating, and yearns for nothing more than a cozy home to rest her head. Her adopted fur brother, Roy (bottom of photo), is a younger shepherd mix with a higher energy level but an equally compelling adoration for humans.

Their owner has a terminal diagnosis and asked Angels to find them new home before he is unable to do so himself.

We know of two hitch-hikers – one Beagle and one Coonhound, who need a ride this weekend from Macon to Atlanta, and then from Atlanta to Knoxville, TN. If you can help, please email me today.

Meals on Wheels and the Atlanta Humane Society have partnered to deliver dog and cat food to some Meals on Wheels recipients who receive food deliveries.

Since the program started late last year, more than 42, 10-pound bins of cat and dog food has been delivered to Meals on Wheels Atlanta clients. No funds intended for seniors are used. The food is donated by the humane society. The Atlanta Humane Society has a similar partnership with a program that feeds seniors in Alpharetta.

It’s all part of an effort by hundreds of senior meals programs nationwide to extend their services to include pets. Many low-income seniors, such as Watters, still live in their own homes and have pets as companions, but feeding them can sometimes be difficult.

Locally, staffers and volunteers were worried that some senior clients were dipping into their own food deliveries to feed their pets. And that wasn’t good for either. Others were also using resources that could be used to pay other bills to feed their cats and dogs.

“It is often a struggle for them to care for and feed their pets due to limited resources,” said Joel Izlar, meal services manager at Meals on Wheels Atlanta, which delivers meals to about 300 low-income seniors a week.

Pets can play a key role in a senior’s overall emotional and physical well being, experts say. They offer companionship, help seniors get fit and have been used in help increase socialization and reduce agitation in people who suffer from Alzheimer’s disease.
