Tomorrow will be a mass euthanization day at Barrow County Animal Shelter in Winder, Ga, as the holidays meant several days of being closed and an influx of dogs. If you’ve been considering fostering or adopting, today is the day. Email me if you want to save a dog today but need logistical help.
Lyric is a beautiful young female Chocolate Lab mix, about 9-12 months old and a favorite of the volunteers at Barrow County. We’ve got a potential adopted who has turned in his adoption application and is headed up there today, but having a backup in case something goes wrong would be great. Lyric is great with people, children, and other dogs.
Tia is a sweet female Pittie mix who is thought to be possibly pregnant. She’s very friendly and the volunteers speak very highly of her. Without a foster or adoption by 4 PM today, she will die tomorrow morning along with her unborn babies.
Abbey is a seven-month old Lab mix who weighs 27 pounds – a perfect small-to-medium dog. She’s smiling in this photo, even though today is likely her last day.
Dusty is a sweet female Lab mix, about one year old and 35 pounds. Dusty was surrendered by her owner and will be euthanized tomorrow morning unless saved today.
Roscoe is a dignified-looking Lab mix, about 3-4 years old and 47 pounds. He’s friendly and shy and on his last day today.
Dino is a 9-12 month old Lab mix male. The shelter volunteers say, “If you go meet him you will fall in love,” and “This dog is so adorable it is hard to walk away from him. The cute factor is over the top!!”. He is friendly with kids and other dogs and has begun leash training – he’s said to be a quick learner.
If you’re interested in saving one of these beauties today, what is holding you back? If you’ve never adopted a shelter dog and have some misgivings, maybe you can save one today as a foster-to-adopt. There are rescue groups willing to work with you if you can save one dog today. Need transportation help? Email me and we’ll see what we can do.
