Carmen is a young female Hound mix who is available for adoption from Animal Ark in Columbus, GA. Though Carmen had a rough life, she is said to be an angel of a dog.
Carmen is a very calm and gentle soul that adores getting pets from her humans. Carmen is a very smart cookie and LOVES food puzzles and anything to keep her little brain busy. An ideal home for Carmen would have a loving family, a cozy dog bed, and lots of Kong toys and food puzzles top play with. She is now all healed up and ready for a forever home! Carmen has been a volunteer favorite for our outings program. Carmen has been on both sleep-overs and doggy dates.
Here’s what the shelter volunteers have to say: “Carmen is very curious and fascinated by everything around her. She LOVES walks, belly rubs, and running. During her sleep-over she didn’t bark at all, never jumped on furniture, or got into any mischief. She is a very sweet girl.”
Mario is super sweet and dog friendly. He loves to play and is housebroke.
The Gwinnett County Animal Shelter is offering discounted adoptions – $30 for dogs and puppies, $10 for cats.
Gwinnett County Animal Shelter is discounting adoption fees to address overcrowding.
The shelter is full, meaning that animals who have been inside for a while could be in danger of euthanization to make room for new animals.
“The biggest concern is that we constantly take in more animals. We need to make space for the constant inflow,” said Cindy Wiemann, the division assistant manager for Gwinnett’s Animal Welfare and Enforcement.
To encourage adoption, shelter officials have extended their summer catapalooza adoption rates. Through September, new pet parents can adopt dogs and puppies for $30. Cats and kittens can be adopted for $10.
“This includes vaccinations, microchips and sterilization — that’s spaying or neutering,” Wiemann said.
Wiemann said medium and big dogs are in most urgent need of adoption right now. The shelter’s running out of pens that will fit them.
If I were looking for a puppy to adopt, I would get in my car today and drive to the Carroll County Animal Shelter. They have so many puppies looking for permanent homes.
Raisin is a shy little beagle who enjoys hanging out near you but not directly touching you. She thrives on the friendship of other dogs, and requires that her new family have another dog to be her friend. She is a typical beagle in that she can find a scent and follow it forever, so a secure fenced yard is required for potty time. Her adoption fee is $150. She’s about 1 year old.
Snuggles is a low key easy going 2 year old English bulldog/lab mix. Snuggles would do best as the only dog in the home but could possibly live with another dog given enough space. She loves her people and is an easy dog to live with.
Huffy is good with anything and everything. She’s quiet and calm enough for an apartment but she also enjoys playing outside. She likes to cuddle in bed with you. She gets along fine with other dogs, cats and kids. She is about 6 years old. She’s spayed, up to date on shots and heartworm negative.
Coweta County Animal Control is offering free adoptions to reduce overcrowding.
For a limited time, any animal that has been at the shelter over 60 days can be adopted free of charge. At the time of adoption, animals are spayed or neutered, and receive dewormer and their first round of shots. They are also examined by a vet and receive a microchip that contains their information if they are ever lost.
Animals that have been at the shelter less than 60 days can be adopted for 50 percent off the standard adoption fee. With the discount, the adoption fee is $35 for cats and $63 for dogs.
The shelter will be open extended hours this Saturday. Normal hours are 9 a.m.-1 p.m, with adoptions from 10 a.m.-noon. This Saturday, the shelter will be open until 2 p.m.
Hi! Wallie here.
I am a 9 year old who found myself taken to a shelter because my owner was going to college and decided she didn’t need me anymore. Thank goodness the wonderful people at NBRAN found out about me and picked me up!
I am very healthy, in fact I’m a little bit over weight. I’m UTD on my vaccines, HW negative and super friendly. I am good with other dogs and cats are an unknown. When I was at the vet for my check up they found out I have a very mild form of something called Laryngeal Paralysis. My foster mom says it is barely noticeable now that I am happy at her house. Because of this it has been recommended that I be adopted in a Northern cooler climate to keep me healthy.
I am such an amazing boy and will make a great companion, don’t let my age fool you. I love to play and hunt the laser pointer as long as you will play with me. Did you say squeaky ball? I have one and it is my favorite toy! Car rides?? Oh Yes Please!!! Did I mention I am house trained, walk well on a leash, sit for treats, and don’t jump on the furniture. I am a submissive boy and when bedtime comes I am happy to sleep in my bed on the floor next to you in your bed. Do I have any negative issues? Yes, just one sadly. I have some mild toy aggression, but my foster mom is working on it. Please don’t let that be a deal breaker though. One last thing, the children in the neighbor just love me, so I guess that means I am good with children also.
I am definitely a scent hound which means my nose rules! I will follow it anywhere even if it gets me in to trouble. Last July I followed my nose right into the path of an oncoming car. That was a very painful experience! It caused something called a ‘fractured pelvis.’ It has healed up nicely and I do really well with walking, running and jumping but I will need to be on joint supplements for life to help me stay active.
My foster mom says I have an awesome personality. I love people and like it best when I can always be with my humans. I really like other dogs! I don’t live with cats, but I find the one at my vet’s office fascinating! I am crate trained, but still working on my housebreaking. My foster mom says I am very smart! I love my foster mom and foster siblings, but I really need a forever home hopefully with another doggie sibling or siblings to play with and a human family I can love forever and ever!
