Adoptable (Official) Georgia Dogs for February 5, 2024

Coastal Pet Rescue in Metro Savannah is collaborating to open a Pet Pantry to help pet owners who cannot afford food for their pets, according to the Savannah Morning News.

CPR and Two Black Dogs Foundation are teaming up with the Effingham County Animal Shelter to help feed hungry pets of Effingham County residents who are enduring tough financial times.

CPR is a non-profit dedicated to animal rescue for abused and neglected cats and dogs in and around Savannah. Two Black Dogs Foundation provides affordable spay and neuter programs.

“Both organizations approached me within a day of each other,” Animal Shelter Director Lorna Shelton said. “They said, ‘We need to help people who have fallen on hard times.’ Since they didn’t have a stationary place to actually do this, they asked if we would join them as the ‘go to’ place if they supplied the food.”

The Pet Pantry, 307 Ga. Hwy 119 in Springfield, will open its doors Feb. 5. Hours of operation are 1-3 p.m. Monday-Friday.“If people need some help with pet food, we will have some applications for them to fill out,” said Shelton. “They will have to provide proof of residency in Effingham County.”

Shelton asks that folks who would like to donate bring dry dog and cat food, preferably Pedigree and Meow Mix.

“For a lot of people, pets can help with mental health challenges,” said [Coastal Pet Rescue Director Lisa] Scarbrough. “Financial issues are a huge stressor and is something that weighs heavily on people. I’ve read more than enough articles to know that when people are petting their pet, it lowers their blood pressure. It forces you to calm down. They don’t ask for a lot and are a source of comfort.”

Donations cannot be dropped at the Effingham County Animal Shelter. Food can be dropped off at either Coastal Pet Rescue, 7430 Thomas Ave. in Savannah, or Two Black Dogs Foundation on Oak Drive in Bloomingdale.

Pecan Pie is an 8-month old female Beagle and Hound mix puppy who is available for adoption from Coastal Pet Rescue in Savannah, GA.

Pecan showed up to her foster’s house on Thanksgiving Day. She was malnourished and skittish. She hadn’t eaten a proper puppy meal in days. We brought her inside, gave her a bath, and fed her. Her foster has 6 other dogs – 3 being Great Danes, and they all seem to get along. They also have 3 cats and she is very curious of them, but hasn’t bothered them. She loves to play the big dogs and she will also play by herself with stuffed animals. ( dog appropriate) Pecan is not house trained. We are working on that. She loves to cuddle at bedtime. She is very sweet and loving dog.

Hank is a 4-5 year-old male Beagle mix who is available for adoption from Coastal Pet Rescue in Savannah, GA.

Hank was originally rescued in 2020 but was recently returned to us by concerned citizens after he was found wandering the street.
We are still trying to evaluate Hank’s behavior, and reacquaint ourselves with him, but so far, he has been a sweet dog at our facility. He does have some separation anxiety (but who can blame him after who knows how long he was out roaming on his own). In typical Beagle fashion, he loves to sing you the song of his people; a unique musical styling to get your attention (or if left alone) so apartment living isn’t the life for him. He just loves to be with you and wants to remind you he’s there. If you’re looking for a sweet companion to serenade you, submit an application and let’s see if he’s the boy for you.

Sam is an 8-year old male Beagle mix who is available for adoption from Coastal Pet Rescue in Savannah, GA.

Sam is a really special senior who is going to need a really special someone who can give him the love and care he needs. Sam has a seizure disorder. While it is managed with medication and daily exercise, he is still prone to seizures when he gets really happy and/or excited. His foster tries to make sure he gets as much exercise as possible and walks him about 2 – 3 miles a day to keep his energy level on the lower side. Sam is a gentle soul who would be a great companion and is sure to melt your heart and make you laugh with his silly antics and playful spirit.

Adoptable (Official) Georgia Dogs for January 31, 2024

Dot is a young female Plott Hound & Mountain Cur mix who is available for adoption from the Charles Smithgall Humane Society and Adoption Center in Sautee Nacoochee, GA.

Pawfect pup alert! Dot was rescued from a kill shelter that needed to make room for more dogs. She is an absolute gem. Dot is sweet, gentle, calm, loving, affectionate, funny, happy-go-lucky and so friendly. She loves people, will do well with kids and she loves dogs! Oh my gosh she is so easy-going. Dot loves going for walks, she makes friends with dogs everywhere she goes. She seems to like kitties also.

When released into our play yard, she greets each neighbor dog with a friendly check and how-do-you-do. We can tell by the smile on her face and the happy wag of her tail that she is so happy to have been given a second chance to find her furever home. We’re not sure what Dot’s breeds are, she has a plott hound look or she could be a pibble mix, lab mix, but she is 100% terrific! She has a gorgeous silver colored brindle coat, sparkling eyes, and a pretty face. She only weighs 39 lbs and is fully grown. Best estimate is she’s around two years old. She’s a great medium size, not too big and not too small, just right.

Finn is a young male Black Labrador Retriever & Catahoula Leopard Dog mix puppy who is available for adoption from the Charles Smithgall Humane Society and Adoption Center in Sautee Nacoochee, GA.

Meet Finn. This uber cute puppy has known tremendous heartache and fear in his early life but since he’s been with us, he is thriving! He was so timid and frightened when he first arrived but Finn is full of confidence now! He is a handsome boy, thought to be a retriever mix, but it’s hard to know. He has a gorgeous blue/black coat with undermarkings similar to a Catahoula leopard dog. Finn also has a naturally docked tail. Finn is a snuggly little boy who can also be a ball of energy and movement. Finn loves to go for car rides and off site hikes, especially with his best friend Oliver. He has recently been taken to local events and he charms everyone he meets, then settles in for a nice snuggle with his person. Finn is an amazing little puppy who deserves so much more than growing up in a shelter.

Madison is an adult female Labrador Retriever mix who is available for adoption from the Charles Smithgall Humane Society and Adoption Center in Sautee Nacoochee, GA.

Madison is a super friendly dog. Sadly, she has been with us for far too long. Madison suffered terribly when she was younger and we rescued her from a high kill shelter. For us, she is a shelter favorite with her high spirits and affectionate nature. She has a joy for living and she’d love nothing better than belonging to a family who loves her.

Madison is almost 4 years old now, living most of her young life behind bars or wandering the streets and now she’s been with us for over 2 years. She’s thought to be a golden retriever mix. She is gorgeous with a soft angora-like coat and lively eyes. She’s super smart. Madison is afraid of other dogs and will chase cats. She’ll need to be an only pet, but she has plenty of silliness and love to fill your world. She LOVES LOVES LOVES people and would probably love being around older kids, as well. She is a cuddler. Madison loves giving hugs and doggie kisses to those she loves. She thrives with attention. She is an active girl and an active lifestyle would suit her best. She loves being in the play yards where she’ll throw the jolly balls around and run and pounce after them. A fenced containment yard will be important for her happiness. Staff and volunteers have worked with Madison and she knows some commands.

Dale is an adult male mixed breed (retriever?) dog who is available for adoption from Athenspets in Athens, GA.

Dale is a big boy who wants to be right next to his human. If he wasn’t leaning against me, he was standing in front of me with his back end posed to be scratched. Dale LOVES a good scratching and revs up a back leg as he enjoys it. It’s not hard to find his sweet spot! Dale is a good buddy, but it took forever for me to get a few photos-as soon as I’d step away for a shot, he’d step closer!

Jubilee is a young female mixed breed dog who is available for adoption from Athenspets in Athens, GA.

Jubilee was shy at first, but toys and treats paved the way to fun. She had the best time chasing toys and coming to me for treats. Her bunny ears are adorable!

Prada is a senior female mixed breed (Chiuhuahua?) dog who is available for adoption from Athenspets in Athens, GA.

Birch is a young male Hound mix puppy who is available for adoption from Screven County Spay & Neuter Corp. in Sylvania, GA.

Birch is a 4-month old puppy who was found dumped on a dirt road. He is recently arrived and still in need of vaccines. They can leave rescue after quarantine and on 1/29/24. He is incredibly friendly and playful! He will need help learning to potty train and walk on a leash.

Stormy is a young female German Shorthaird Pointer mix puppy who is available for adoption from Screven County Spay & Neuter Corp. in Sylvania, GA.

Stormy is an adorable GSP mix. She is your typical puppy and would love a family to call her own! Local (within 1 hour of Statesboro Georgia) adoptions only as she will need her spay once she is old enough and will only be adopted out with a spay contract. Unless adopter chooses to use their own vet at their expense.

Max is a young male Beagle mix puppy who is available for adoption from Screven County Spay & Neuter Corp. in Sylvania, GA.

Max and his brother Believer were left behind after their owner moved away. They are in need of weight and have neuter appointments scheduled. While we get them healthy we will also work on teaching them humans are ok as they are very nervous in this new home environment. They had always lived outside on a chain. Crate-trained, vaccinated, and will be neutered.

Russell is a young male Retriever mix puppy who is available for adoption from Cedartown Animal Rescue, Education, and Sterilization in Cedartown, GA.

Russell is the cutest little puppy! Born approx 9/10/23, Russell is currently 34 pounds at 14 weeks old. With a soft, black coat that shines in the sunlight, Russell is quite a gorgeous boy. He is as smart as he is handsome. He is already perfectly crate trained, walks well on a leash, knows sit and is already learning down! Russell is the typical playful pup! He adores toys, gets along well with other dogs, does well in a safe, fenced yard for playtime and loves playing ball and chase with the other foster pups here. Russell is a very special guy…this beautiful puppy was surrendered to us after he tested positive for parvo and the owners could not afford the $2,200 emergency vet bill. After the owners requested for them to euthanize Russell, the emergency clinic reached out to us in the hopes that we would take on his medical costs and accept Russell into our program. We couldn’t say no…and that saved Russell’s life. He is quite literally lucky to be alive and has the honor of being a parvovirus survivor! Russell has recovered wonderfully, has now started all his preventative vet work (vaccines, deworming, micro-chipping) and is ready for his new home. We have decided to place him prior to his neuter surgery to let him grown and develop a bit first while at the same time having the opportunity to go ahead and start his new life at his forever home. We will then work with the adopters on bringing him back when it’s time for surgery.

Dutton is an adult male Beagle mix who is available for adoption from Cedartown Animal Rescue, Education, and Sterilization in Cedartown, GA.

Meet Dutton! He is a 2.5 year old male Beagle who is about as photogenic as they come! He has a gorgeous tan coat with a ton of chrome (white) on him. Dutton is full grown at 34 pounds which makes him the perfect size. This boy is energetic and athletic without being hyper. He walks well on a leash, is perfectly crate trained and may be housebroken (he lives in a rescue environment so we have no way of knowing if he is already housetrained). Pulled from a high kill shelter just in time, Dutton has an amazing personality and loves everyone he meets! He enjoys going in a safe, fenced yard for interactive playtime, enjoys toys and loves running and playing with the other foster dogs. Dutton appears well behaved, doesn’t chew his bedding or toys and is a joy to be around. He would make an excellent walking/hiking partner. At night, he would make the perfect cuddle buddy. Dutton is fully vetted and ready for his forever home. His wish list consists of an inside, forever home with a big fenced yard for playtime, a home with lots of toys and maybe another doggy friend for play time and pet parents who understand the time commitment that a new doggy requires.

Willow is an adult female Terrier mix who is available for adoption from Cedartown Animal Rescue, Education, and Sterilization in Cedartown, GA.

For 1,000 days, this sweet girl has watched literally hundreds of dogs come into the rescue, get healthy and move onto their new home. She has literally grown up at CARES…. Are you someone who would makes excuses why you can go to the party only to stay home in your pajamas, watch tv and cuddle on the sofa with your puppy dog? Is your house relatively quiet with no small children? Do you have the love and patience it takes to allow a dog to acclimate on their comfort level? Then Willow is your girl!

Think this dog must be older? Think again. Willow was rescued out of a kill shelter at just 6 weeks old. She was already unwanted as just a tiny puppy – part of a litter of 6 dumped at the local shelter. She was 42 days old when we took her in. She watched all of her littermates get adopted, yet here she still sits. Today Willow is 1,042 days old and she has been without a real family all 1.042 days of her life…

Oliver is an adult male Terrier mix who is available for adoption from Cedartown Animal Rescue, Education, and Sterilization in Cedartown, GA.

Meet Oliver! We aren’t sure of this little guy’s breed but we found this young fella sitting in a kill shelter. He was very scared in the shelter – even growling at people. We are happy to report that those days are behind him now and he is so happy to get love and attention! Oliver is simply gorgeous! He has a soft, tan coat with lots of chrome and crystal blue eyes that you could get lost in! Currently weighing in at 26 pounds, Oliver is full grown at 1 and a half years old. He is friendly & sweet, walks well on a leash and enjoys attention. Oliver loves playing with our other foster dogs, big and small. This beautiful boy is eager to learn new things. He is perfect in his crate and should house train easily once given the opportunity (he may already be house trained). Oliver likes toys, running with his canine friends and interactive time in a safe area. Also among favorites is snuggle time with people. This gorgeous pup is a favorite at CARES and won’t last long. Oliver is fully vetted and ready for his new home.

Rip is a young male Terrier mix puppy who is available for adoption from Castoff Pet Rescue in Blairsville, GA.

We think mama is a Jack Russell / Plott Hound mix and is only about 15 pounds. Babies will be bigger than mama. Pictures don’t do these cuties justice – the precious white puppy is the girl and she is much bigger than the boy, who looks exactly like mama. The babies are about 9 weeks old and are ready to go home. They are both super loving and have been very well socialized. They love people and love to give kisses and snuggle. They would be amazing dogs for any home! 

Alfie is a young male Great Dane and Hound mix who is available for adoption from Castoff Pet Rescue in Blairsville, GA.

Alfie is about 1 year old. He was rescued with his mom from a high kill shelter. They have hard a life and probably were strays for a long time. He is a total complete love bug and just wants to be a lap dog, and wants love. He deserves a loving family of his own. He is about 1 year old, 50 pounds and still a puppy. They are under weight from being on the street and shelter. Alfie is looking for a home that will train him and love him forever!

Petunia is a young female mixed breed puppy who is available for adoption from Castoff Pet Rescue in Blairsville, GA.

Petunia is said to be good with dogs, cats, and children.
