Olive is a 5 year old female bloodhound turned into a rural Georgia shelter, emaciated and in need of medical care. She probably lived outside her whole life and has obviously has had several litters of pups. She is now a healthy, petite ( for a bloodhound) 64 pounds, She is very sweet and eager to please and loves being around people, she is quite the social butterfly, and enjoys walks in the park, or tucked under the patio table at a dog friendly restaurant . Though she is happy to lay out on the porch, Olive prefers being inside and close by her people, she likes the couch or her own chair. We are looking for a home for Olive where she will get the human attention she deserves.

Would you like to meet a really REALLY sweet dog? Well here is Charlie who was dropped at a rural shelter in West Georgia, terrified and so confused because she had no clu what brought her there in the first place! It just so happedned that this wonderful lady with a huge big heart for sweet dogs saw her post and just could not Charlie out of her mind, so she saved her from being euthanized. Charlie was SOOO grateful for being in a home and warmed up quickly to big and small humans and to the other canines in the house.
Charlie loves to go for walks on the leash and here comes the best part: She is potty trained and crate trained already!!! She’s a total love bug and nothing makes her happier than to cuddle up with you and a bone to chew on. Charlie is eager to please and even more eager to love and be loved on. She is a perfect, small to medium built (30lbs) and a year old. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us if you are interested in giving this little lady a temporary (foster) or forever home!
Brandy is a seven-year old female Boykin Spaniel who is available for adoption from Coastal Pet Rescue in Savannah, GA.

This handsome 3-year-old fellow is Ryder who spent another birthday in boarding (this makes three whole birthdays) without a home. But, the good news is that Ryder has been working with a trainer and getting more social, play, and work time.
Ryder loves playing with other dogs, but gets rather rowdy. He’s a pleaser, however, so a dog-experienced, authoritative type could easily guide his interactions. Ryder comes with FREE LIFETIME Training. Adopters can drop in anytime to group classes in Decatur/Kirkwood.
He weighs 50 lbs. and is great with people and good with some same-sized dogs (must correct rowdy play); just no cats! Ryder is crate-, potty-, and obedience trained. He’s neutered, up-to-date on vaccines, and heartworm negative.
Winnie is a lively little Terrier mix who was heartworm-positive in Texas and scheduled to be destroyed. We felt she deserved another chance and brought her here. Now, she is spayed, up-to-date on all vaccinations, and heartworm-free. She is ready to find her forever home. Winnie is about 1 years old.
Winnie gets along well with other dogs and is always up for play or mischief. She is quite intelligent and learns easily. She is housebroken and rather fastidious about her cleanliness. She usually doesn’t like to get dirty. She would make a good companion for older children or adults.
Sally is an outgoing dog who gets along well with other dogs and mostly ignores cats. She loves to play and romp, and because she sometimes forgets herself and jumps up, she probably would work best in a home with older children.
Sally loves to go for rides in the car and walks. She needs a fenced in yard because she likes to explore. She does not dig nor is she destructive.
Sally would love a family of her own and she promises to be a very nice girl! She could easily go into a home with another dog as a companion.
Linus is a precious Beagle mixed pup. He gets along well with all his doggie friends and is very fond of toys. He is gentle and polite, Linus would love a home of his own, he has a lot of love to share. He will need a securely fenced yard or strict leash walking for potty time.
Diamond is a “Pocket Pitt” who started out with a rough life. When we rescued her, she was in pretty rough shape, but she is a healthy happy girl now! She has done well with some dogs and not others. She LOVES her current kennel partner, Tebow, if you would like to think of a pair of silly beasts! She is vaccinated, parasite free, spayed, and ready to live in the lap of love!

Gwinnett County Commissioners approved a contract with Planned Pethood to provide veterinary services at the county animal shelter.
The annual contract is for $360,000.
Officials said having the veterinarian services at the shelter can expedite the adoption process because it means animals who are strays or have gone unclaimed can get vet care and sterilization faster.
“This contract increases the shelter’s efficiency by promptly evaluating, testing and treating contagious or infectious diseases such as parvovirus, feline distemper, mange, ringworm and flu,” commission Chairwoman Charlotte Nash said in a statement.
Under the terms of the agreement, Planned PEThood will provide a full-time veterinarian and veterinarian technicians on-site at the shelter. Depending on the season, those employees would be at the shelter five or six times a week.
