Mina is a shy, sweet girl who loves to take walks and is really good on a leash. She seems to do well with other dogs, but is a little selective about who her friends will be. If you would like a sweet girl just looking for a quite home and yard, then Mina may be the girl for you

Natasha is a 14-year old female Chihuahua mix who is available for adoption from Coastal Pet Rescue in Savannah, GA.

Natasha isn’t looking for a fast paced home or life style and would prefer a quiet abode where she can nap or just be by your side and soak up all the love she can. At home she loves to snuggle on the couch and uses a little ramp to get up and down on her own. She’ll also need someone with patience as she’s still learning to ask when she needs to go out (but has mastered pee pads), is on a wet food only diet and takes daily medication. This senior girl doesn’t let any of that stop her from living life to her fullest! With a big smile and even bigger personality, she can’t wait for you to meet her!

The Fulton County Animal Shelter is pleading for adopters and fosters, according to the AJC.

Fulton County officials have put out an “urgent call for help” to adopt or foster cats and dogs from the county animal shelter.

The call came from a video produced by the county explains that the shelter, which was built for 80 dogs, is now overflowing with more than 300 dogs with workers “pleading” for help. Fulton is working to make adoptions essentially free.

“We really need the public’s help in terms of coming in and fostering pets, adopting our pets,” said Alton Adams, Fulton’s COO of public safety. ” … We really need the public to work with us.”

LifeLine Animal Project, which runs the Fulton and DeKalb animal shelters wrote on Facebook:

Homes urgently needed this weekend!

There are hundreds of dogs in our care and we’re urgently looking for homes this weekend. Adoptions and rescue transfers have been slow and animals are arriving at our shelters at a faster rate than they are leaving. With 422 dogs at our Dekalb County Animal Services shelter and 352 dogs at our Fulton County Animal Services shelter, your help is greatly needed to find homes for the medium-to-large dogs in our care. Here is how you can help:

ADOPT! Visit any LifeLine shelter and choose your own adoption fee! Adopt for whatever price you’d like and help support Atlanta’s animals. To them, your love is priceless! See all of our available pets at LifeLineAnimal.org/adopt and visit us to meet your new pet this weekend.

FOSTER! Bring home a dog temporarily and help them find the home of their dreams. Any amount of time helps. Sign up today at LifeLineAnimal.org/foster-dogs.

DONATE! Can’t foster or adopt? Donate on this post or at LifeLineAnimal.org/help-save-lives and help support the animals in our care and community.

In May, the Glynn County Animal Shelter said they were expecting an influx of dogs and cats, according to The Brunswick News.

This is the time of year when litters of kittens and puppies get dropped off at the shelter.

Interim shelter director Lori Austin, a Glynn County Police Department lieutenant, has been on the job a week. She said the shelter needs more volunteers to walk dogs and other tasks.

Foster parents are also in high demand, Austin said.

Savannah has seen a dramatic increase in pet surrenders, according to WTOC.

Rising costs are hitting families hard and now that financial strain is causing them to make tough decisions, like getting rid of the their pets.

Looking at the numbers – in just a three month stretch from April to June of this year compared to last year. Dogs being surrendered by their owners has almost doubled going from 64 to 113.

Stray dog intake have also increased this year from 221 to 286.

The director of animal services says most of the people that brought pets in said they cannot afford them anymore with rising rent costs and additional pet fees for apartments.

“We can give playtime in the yard, we can do those things, we make kongs with peanut butter in them to help stimulate their minds but it is a kennel situation not ideal for dogs to live in long term and as we see, some dogs can mentally deteriorate the longer they stay here. Some of those dogs ultimately have to be euthanized because of the length of stay, we try our best to not do things like that but it is the reality of the situation,” said Dr. Jake Harper, Chatham County Animal Services Director.

Dr. Harper says he has never seen it this bad, but this is not just a Chatham County issue but something shelters across the state are seeing and they are asking for your help.

Columbus Animal Control also announced they are experiencing high demand, according to WTVM.

The Columbus Animal Control is seeking fosters as the shelter is at full capacity.

They’re set up to house 26 cats and 40 dogs, but officials say they are now over capacity and are having trouble taking in additional furry friends.

The Lowndes County shelter in Valdosta has a need for fosters, according to WALB.

This year alone, the Valdosta Lowndes County Humane Society has taken in over 500 furry little friends. Humane society employees said that number continues to increase daily.

The humane society said it is in desperate need of foster homes.

Becoming an animal foster parent can be scary for most people. Several pet foster parents shared their experiences on what you can do to overcome that fear.

[Valdosta Lowndes County Humane Society board member Emily Smith] said the only requirement is that you care for them and love them.

“We provide all of the supplies and we provide all of the medical needs you just provide the love,” she said.

Zeta is a 3-year old, 56-pound female mixed breed dog who is available for adoption from the Fulton County Animal Shelter in Atlanta, GA.

-Great with all people and dogs (not sure about cats).
-Loves toys, treats and fetching the ball.
– Only barks while playing (has not barked at the neighbors outside, even when my dog does).
– House broken (not even one accident in 8 days in foster)
-Crate-trained (goes right in with a treat).
-Loves car rides and is good on leash.
– Medium energy that is easily spent with some attention.
– Some young dog behaviors that are easily redirected (lightly nips for attention, overly playful with other dogs).

Zeta is a loving dog that has already had training. She knows all her basic commands: sit, shake, down and stay. She will benefit from someone that is willing to continue to work with her, as she is very treat and attention motivated. She is an extremely loyal pet. She loves to be outside and would flourish with a backyard, but an active person without a yard would suit her equally as well.

Sasa is a ten-year old, 47-pound female mixed breed dog available for adoption from the Fulton County Animal Shelter in Atlanta, GA.

Sasa is the spunkiest senior on the block! Sasa loves being outside and is always ready to hit the streets for a walk, but a little bit goes a long way, and after a few blocks she’s ready to head home and relax on the couch… with lots of belly rubs of course! She is great around all people, even children and babies, and will happily smother you with kisses before finding a cozy spot to cuddle. But she’s not just into people – Sasa is as eager as any puppy to meet new four-legged friends. Her easygoing personality helps her get along with all types of dogs, whether that means sharing toys, playing chase, or just lounging around for a nap in the sun.

Sasa is crate and house trained and knows some basic commands. If you are looking for a cuddly, calm, easy dog, Sasa is your girl.

Weasel is a 2-year old, 72-pound male mixed breed dog who is available for adoption from the Fulton County Animal Shelter in Atlanta, GA.

Weasel is hoping you need some Weasel-sized hugs in your life! Weasel is a calm guy – until he knows it is lovin’ time, and then he turns into a wiggle-butt that just wants to crawl into your lap.

He’s known as a big sweetheart at the shelter, and he would love to get out and show you! He loves his time outside, and is content to walk at an easy pace and take time to smell the roses (or chew the grass).

Weasel is also dog-friendly, so please consider bringing your dog down for a meeting with him!
