The Brunswick News covers the evacuation by Glynn County Animal Control ahead of Hurricane Dorian.

Evacuating more than 100 pets from Glynn County Animal Control’s shelter on U.S. Highway 17 to the Okefenokee Fairgrounds in Waycross wouldn’t have been easy for veteran staff, but the shelter’s relatively green crew got it done.

With Hurricane Dorian nearing the Golden Isles, animal control evacuated last Monday, Sept. 2, and came back on Thursday.

“The animals were back on Thursday, but we wanted to leave the place clean. We also had to send people back to start answering calls for service. The cleaning ended up taking into the evening Thursday and the middle of the day Friday,” Hill said. “… We’re still unpacking some of the trailers and getting the supplies reorganized and mounds and mounds of laundry caught up on.”

All the animals had to be held in individual collapsible kennels for the duration of the evacuation, Hill said, which made cleaning difficult, and the temporary shelter had to be staffed constantly meaning long shifts for everyone.

Two rescue groups — Good Mews of Atlanta and McKamey Animal Center in Chattanooga — made the whole process a lot easier by taking more than 100 pets off the shelter’s hands before the evacuation even began.

Another rescue group picked up more dogs while they were taking shelter in Waycross.

“Thirteen more dogs went out. One of our staff rode to Tifton and met with a driver from Animal Ark, from Columbus, Ga., and they took 13 more dogs,” Hill said.

“All told, because of the hurricane, we had a total of 103 animals leave permanently into the care of other rescue groups. Which is wonderful, but it certainly doesn’t mean we had a lot of space. I think on our first day back, on Thursday, 10 more animals came in.”

Copper Brunswick

Copper  is a young male Redbone Coonhound who is available for adoption from the The Humane Society of South Coastal Georgia in Brunswick, GA.

Confident, clever, and intelligent. That’s Copper in a nutshell. This handsome 1-year-old Coonhound mix loves to follow his nose and howl a good tune. He is fast, strong, and holds true to his instincts. Although he was found as a stray, we hear he is house trained and good with other animals. If you’ve fallen head over heels for this handsome hound, stop in.

Flossy Brunswick

Flossy is a young female Treeing Walker Coonhound and Greyhound mix who is available for adoption from the The Humane Society of South Coastal Georgia in Brunswick, GA.

Flossy and Mossy were brought in as strays, but never reclaimed by an owner. They have come a long way from being found out in the woods, and seem to like it just fine here! However, they would of course love it even more if they had homes of their own, together or separately. They are energetic, nose-to-the-ground girls who like to sniff out everything around them. The best find of all for them would be new families! Spayed, microchipped, current on core vaccines and tested negative for heartworms, Flossy and Mossy are waiting patiently for you.

Sandy Brunswick

Sandy is a female Labrador Retriever who is available for adoption from the The Humane Society of South Coastal Georgia in Brunswick, GA.

Sandy is a sweet 8 year old lab mix that is looking for a new home where she can relax. She would be a great addition to a family with other dogs her size, but isn’t a huge fan of cats. We have also been told she is not a fan of thunderstorms (what dog is!?) and has a tendency to escape when she is frightened. Sandy is spayed, current on core vaccines, microchipped, and tested negative for heartworms. Are you able to provide Sandy a safe home to spend her golden years?

Sammi PAWS

Sammy is a young male mixed breed dog who is available for adoption from PAWS Humane in Columbus, GA.

Taffi PAWS

Taffy is a female mixed breed dog who is available for adoption from PAWS Humane in Columbus, GA.

Taffy girl was adopted from PAWS as a tiny pup 2 years ago. Her owners had to recently return her due to their declining health. Taffy is still a pup in some ways. She likes to chew, so toys are friend when she has to be left alone. Squeaky toys are her favorite. She has a lot of playful energy, so an active family is ideal. Her previous owners told us that she likes other dogs, cats and children. They described her as loving, a good traveler and a people pleaser.

She is still working on potty training, and will once in a while make a bathroom mistake overnight. She does pace the floor or go to the door when she has to go outside. She is used to free roaming in the home during the day but is confined to a room when left alone. She loves outside play time, going for walks and traveling in the car. She is a night time cuddler and very affectionate. They began to teach her the following commands: sit, lay, stop, drop it, get it & take a nap (means to get in your bed). This girl has been spayed, microchipped and is up to date on vaccines.

Stormi PAWS

Stormi is a young female mixed breed dog who is available for adoption from PAWS Humane in Columbus, GA.

Blackie Athens

Blackie is a male Labrador Retriever mix who is available for adoption from Athens-Clarke County Animal Control in Athens, GA.

Blackie was a very sweet and gentle boy. He was cautious with the other dog in the neighboring interaction pen. He barked and wagged his tail a little whenever he saw the dog run. He gently takes treats out of your hand and loves to give hugs. He enjoys the mud puddles but not so much of the pool. He has playful energy but knows when to be calm. He is such a goof, he loved rolling on the ground a lot. Every time I laughed he would stop and look at me and then continue to do it again.

He tugs on the leash a little at first but still listens pretty well when I asked him to “slow down.” I think he will do great with a family with middle age kids (he loves to jump to give hugs, but he’s a gentle jumper). I also believe a family with either a non reactive chill dog or maybe a smaller dog would be in his best interest if they had animals. He seemed more cautious toward dogs his size but didn’t mind smaller ones when we walked by the kennels. He’s definitely a character.

Tucker Athens

Tucker is a male mixed breed dog who is available for adoption from Athens-Clarke County Animal Control in Athens, GA.

Tucker really enjoyed his time in the interaction pen, and he was very interested in investigating the sights and smells all around him. He politely sniffed his neighbor at the fence and did not react at all. Once the heat thoroughly tuckered him out, he beat the heat by vegging out under the picnic table. 

Dax Athens

Dax is a young male mixed breed dog who is available for adoption from Athens-Clarke County Animal Control in Athens, GA.

Dax will make you smile. He’s a sweet, friendly dog who’s easy to be with. He didn’t hesitate to walk with me to an interaction pen, and once he’d taken inventory of his new surroundings, he was ready to be with me. He likes sitting for treats, being loved on, and running to you when you call him. It doesn’t take much to get a tail wag from Dax; he’s such a happy fellow. Come meet this little guy (he’s only 36 pounds!) and make a new friend!

Dax has tested negative for heartworms!
