Adoptable Georgia Dogs for August 4, 2014


ID#2014-07-162 is a Female Hound mix, approximately 2years, friendly, and weighing 57lbs. Kind of makes me thinkg of a Great Dane with those jowls. She is urgent and available for adoption at Barrow County Animal Shelter in Winder, Ga.


ID#2014-07-193  is a female Min Pin mix, possibly with a beagle? female 1-2 years old friendly and weighing 21.9lbs. She is urgent and available for adoption at Barrow County Animal Shelter in Winder, Ga.


ID#2014-07-192 is a young female Lab mix, approximately 6-12 months old, friendly and weighing 22lbs. She is urgent and available for adoption at Barrow County Animal Shelter in Winder, Ga.

If you’re sickened disgusted upset about what appears to be going on in Clayton County with the Animal Shelter, please consider taking some time to come out tomorrow night.

In a statement to, from the director of the Clayton County Animal Shelter, contending the county is “leaning toward a no-kill, low-kill shelter,” rescue volunteers and humane organizations are confused and angry after 22 dogs and one cat were euthanized last Thursday at the Georgia facility with no prior notice.

Seven of the dogs already had adoption commitments, and according to volunteers, the shelter had already been informed. Partners for Pets volunteer Amy Adams wants to know why; after all the photos of the rescued dogs had already been posted on the rescue site and adopters were already looking forward to their new family members.

Please help us by showing up, and speaking out by attending the Clayton County Commission meeting tomorrow night. We must let the commissioners know that CCAC needs CHANGE.

Board of Commissioners Meeting
Date: August 5, 2014
Time: 7:00 p.m.
Location: Boardroom located at 112 Smith Street, Jonesboro, Georgia

Event: Regularly scheduled meeting on the first and third Tuesday of each month, at 7:00 p.m., unless postponed to a subsequent date by action taken at a regular meeting.

Meetings are open to the public.

Get there very EARLY (< 6 pm) and sign up with the Clerk to speak, even if you do not actually want to speak. They only let 10 people speak each meeting, for 3 minutes each, but if you have signed up, most government agencies will let you “cede your time” to another speaker who needs more time for their presentation.

Ed in jail

Here’s a picture of our buddy, Ed, relaxing at the Vet’s office, where he’s awaiting surgery for the tumor you can see on his neck and treatment for his skin condition. Please call Dunwoody Animal Medical Center to donate for his care if you’re able to help (770-698-9227). If anyone is interested in fostering or adopting, please email Erica at

Ed has raised $430 thanks to your generosity, and that of other folks who have heard about his plight. He needs about another $570 for his treatments and vaccinations.
