Adoptable (Official) Georgia Dogs for July 22, 2019

Slater HSSCG

Slater is a year-old, 41-pound who is available for adoption from the Humane Society of South Coastal Georgia in Brunswick, GA.

Slater is a medium size dog at 41 pounds. Big enough to not trip over, and just the right size to snuggle on the couch or romp in the yard with you. Slater is neutered, microchipped, current on core vaccines and has tested negative for heart worms. Who doesn’t love a dog who looks like he is wearing a tuxedo?

Sampson HSSCG

Sampson is a 53-pound year-old male Plott Hound mix who is available for adoption from the Humane Society of South Coastal Georgia in Brunswick, GA.

Sampson is 53 pounds of get up and go, so he would prefer an active family. Once the weather is cool enough for both of you, you will be a darling duo on walkabout together. Sampson is neutered, microchipped, current on core vaccines and tested negative for heartworms.

Farrah HSSCG

Farrah is a three-year old female Labrador Retriever mix who is available for adoption from the Humane Society of South Coastal Georgia in Brunswick, GA.

Just like the “real” Farrah, our girl is quite good looking and self confident. Farrah is a 3 year old adult who loves people. When it comes to other dogs though, she would prefer to be an only child.

The Humane Society of South Coastal Georgia took in eight dogs from Louisiana who were evacuated before Hurricane Barry, according to The Brunswick News.

“Animal welfare organizations have such a great network that agencies come together from different states to help the animals in times of disaster,” said humane society Executive Director Virginia Schlegel.

Hurricane Barry made landfall on Louisiana’s Gulf Coast last week, on July 13, eventually dissipating over northern Arkansas on July 19.

Just before the storm hit, volunteers with Dixie Adoptables — an animal welfare group that runs the animal shelter for the city of Lucedale, Miss. — picked up as many dogs and cats as it could from the Jefferson Parish Animal Shelter in Louisiana. The humane society’s shelter on U.S. Highway 17 was one of their destinations.

Schlegel said she believes all eight are highly adoptable and expects some may want to adopt them more just because they’re evacuees.

“I just encourage everyone to help in these disaster situations, because you don’t know how much it does help. If you could just foster one animal, that would be greatly appreciated,” Schlegel said.
