Sweet Hallie spent over 2 months of her life in a shelter before she was finally rescued. Hallie is ready to enjoy her freedom in a new forever home. Hallie can be a little timid and laid back when first meeting you but warms up pretty quick. She is the sweetest little girl. And….so cute! She loves the attention from people and is always happy to see you. She loves playing with toys and she is good on a leash. She is very smart and has already learned lots of tricks.
Hallie is up to date on her vaccinations, spayed and micro chipped. She is about 6 months old.
Phoebe is the daughter of a Labrador Retriever mix. We are surprised this one is not a Leo because she must be the star of the show. She loves being the center of attention! Phoebe’s toy of choice is any toy that squeaks!
Daisy was found alone after having puppies but her puppies were never found. This sweet and frightened little girl spent the next month in animal control until ORHS was asked to help. Daisy has only been with us a few short days, but she has won our hearts and she is very loved. She is still shy, but her tail now wags when she sees us and she loves when we sit and love on her. Daisy is a calm and quiet dog, good on leash and affectionate once she gets to know you. We think she’ll be a wonderful and loyal companion for someone who will make some time to earn her love and trust.

The Whitfield County Commission voted to seek a state Department of Agriculture grant for dog and cat sterilization, according to the Dalton Daily Citizen.
Eight hundred cats and dogs could be sterilized at no cost to the owner if Whitfield County is awarded a state grant.
County commissioners voted 4-0 Monday night to apply for a $65,600 grant from the Georgia Department of Agriculture.
“That will pay for the sterilization of 200 male dogs, 200 female dogs, 200 male cats and 200 female cats,” said Animal Shelter Director Diane Franklin, who brought the proposal to the commissioners.
The program is funded from fees on special license plates and from donations.
“This will help us reduce the pet overpopulation problem in this county,” said Commissioner Greg Jones. “And if we get those numbers down, it will help us get to our goal of having a no-kill animal shelter.”
Commissioner Barry Robbins agreed.
“This will help us get our euthanization numbers down even lower, and there’s no cost to the county,” he said.
These dogs are currently urgent at the Whitfield County Animal Shelter.
Gwinnett County Animal Shelter is offering free adoptions for medical workers and first responders all month long, according to the AJC.
With proper ID, active duty military, veterans, fire and EMS personnel, police, doctors and nurses will not have to pay to take home a new furry friend. Adoption fees for all animals are reduced to $20 if a customer does not fall into one of those categories.
All animals are spayed or neutered before they go home with their new owner. They also receive a medical exam, vaccinations and a microchip.
Achilles is a very sweet natured six-month old puppy. Because he spent the first five months of his life as a yard dog, he didn’t receive much attention, and has been slowly learning how to act inside a home. A recent graduate of Operation New Hope, Achilles knows sit and down, and is working on not being scared while out on walks on a leash. Because he tends to jump on people when he’s excited, he would do best in a home without small children, but he does love playing with other dogs his size or bigger.
Parker is a sweet girl who loves to cuddle. She’s also playful and loves toys and following her foster mommy around. Her hobbies include chasing the broom and playing with her foster siblings. She is good to play in the yard with family but also fall asleep in your lap. She is small and her foster mom is thinking she isn’t going to get very big at all – maybe around 25lbs. at the most.
