Adoptable (Official) Georgia Dogs for June 3, 2024

Bonnie is a young female English Coonhound mix who is available for adoption from American Black and Tan Coonhound Rescue, Inc. in Tybee Island, GA.

Bonnie means “pretty” and this young girl certainly lives up to her name! This petite, 1 year old coonie is stunningly beautiful and sweet as can be. Bonnie is making phenomenal progress in her foster home after being rescued from a situation in which food and human attention were both scarce. Underweight now, her ideal weight will be about 45 lbs. We know that her mom was a Redtick Coonhound and that there were several male coonhounds on the property that could be her father.

She’s experienced A LOT of firsts since becoming an ABTCR pup: she now knows that loving, toys and treats are pretty amazing! Bonnie is shy and submissive at first but warms up quickly. She will often smile to greet you and your heart will melt when she flashes those pearly whites! Bonnie is a playful pup that would thrive with an active family and a doggie playmate. Bonnie gets along well with other dogs. She is curious but quite respectful of the cat in her foster home. She can get startled easily and doesn’t quite realize how strong she is, so a calm home with older or no children would be best. She is doing well with housetraining and cratetraining and leashtraining is coming along. She learns very quickly and with patience and consistency in her training, she will continue to blossom. Bonnie is not terribly vocal all the time but will bark when she wants something or is unsure of a situation. Bonnie has so much love to give and is sure to be your bestest friend for many years to come! She is waiting in the Augusta area.

Chief is an 18-month old male Black and Tan Coonhound mix who is available for adoption from American Black and Tan Coonhound Rescue, Inc. in Tybee Island, GA.

Chief is an 18 month old Black and Tan boy waiting in the Augusta area for a new home after being picked up as a stray. His foster mom describes him as “an impossibly cute, audacious puppy!” Chief is very social and likes to be around his people and other dogs as much as possible. He is a quick learner and has picked up “sit,” “touch,” and “crate” in two weeks and is working on “stay.” Underweight at 52 lbs now, he LOVES food, toys and tennis balls, and baying. Playing tug-of-war or fetch is a favorite, too. He is housetrained and working on cratetraining and leashwalking. Chief would do well with other dogs his size that are patient with the usual puppy antics. NO cats, please. Chief is one of those coonies that has such a joyful outlook on life that any mischief is forgiven; he will make an outstanding companion with continued training.

French Fry is a young female Labrador Retriever mix who is available for adoption from One Love Animal Rescue, Inc in Savannah, GA.

Hello, my name is French Fry! I am about 6-months-old, and am the sweetest girl. I’m a pretty playful pup, which became obvious after I fractured my elbow while roughhousing with my brother (oops!). Luckily, I am completely healed and looking for my forever home. I love to romp around with my foster siblings, go on walks, and play with my toys. I am still working on my potty-training and manners (hey, I’m still a puppy!). I understand commands, like sit, and am still eagerly learning more. Cuddling with people is one of my absolute favorite things to do and I am excited to go on some adventures with my new adopters. Don’t miss the opportunity to bring me into your life. Fill out an application for me today!

Oliver is a young male Hound and Beagle mix puppy who is available for adoption from Furever After Rescue in Macon, GA.

Oliver was a stray picked up by Baldwin County Animal Control and found himself on the list to be euthanized. FAR stepped up to take him in. Before he made it out of the shelter he came down with parvo, but has made a full recovery! Oliver likes to be with his hooman and will follow you around everywhere. He listens well and is good about coming when his name is called. Oliver would do great with a family or person that will include him in their daily life. Someone or a family that will take him on adventures and fun activities. He loves to be included in anything.

Roxy is an adult female Jack Russsell Terrier mix who is available for adoption from Furever After Rescue in Macon, GA.

I am fully house-trained and crate-trained, although my foster parents leave me out of the crate when they are not around. I spend most of my time sleeping anyways. I would prefer to be the only dog in the home. I also don’t like cats very much. I have never been around children inside a home but I have met a couple on walks and I seem to like them. Low energy but I enjoy going on short walks.

Before coming to FAR, I was surrendered due to a cancerous mass. Since then, I have undergone three surgeries to remove the masses. The vet mentioned that there is still a possibility that the cancer may have spread to other parts of my body. There is also a possibility that the cancerous masses that were removed will come back. The type of cancer I have is an aggressive form of doggy breast cancer. However, I have been doing well and have been gaining weight under the care of my foster parents. I am a senior dog with special needs, but I am still a loving and sweet companion. I am hoping to find a peaceful and comfortable place to spend my golden years.

Lolli is an adult female Boxer and Terrier mix who is available for adoption from Furever After Rescue in Macon, GA.

I was rescued from the Baldwin County Animal Shelter when I was pregnant with 12 puppies. All my puppies have found their furever homes, and now it’s my turn! I am a low to medium energy dog. I do get excited when I play with my foster fur siblings, especially outside, but I know when it is time to calm down. When I’m not playing, I do very well with relaxing with my humans or chewing on a bone.

I love getting pets and belly rubs! I LOVE being with my people and tend to stick close to them whenever I can. I also love playing with my fur siblings or playing fetch in the yard with a ball or a stick. I LOVE water and will try to drink from the hose when you water your plants! I am very sweet and loving. I love to snuggle up on the couch with you. I am so incredibly soft and fun to pet, and I love being pet too. I am playful and always ready for an adventure!

I am VERY well trained, both off and on leash. I know sit, down, here (recall command), drop (for fetch), and place; I will also hold these commands reliably during duration work. I am very food motivated which makes me eager and easy to train!

The Gwinnett County Animal Shelter is at capacity and needs foster homes for adoptable pets, according to AccessWDUN.

Gwinnett County’s Animal Welfare Center is again at critical capacity for dog and cat care, and is seeking homes for their adoptable pets in rapid fashion.

The Bill Atkinson Animal Welfare Center has more than 180 combined dogs, cats, puppies and kittens within their facility and needs to ease the strain on resources and staff.  To do this, Animal Welfare officials in Gwinnett are offering to waive adoption fees for those that are qualified.  

Animal Welfare and Enforcement Division Director Katrina Amaro says in a press release, “Getting more animals into permanent adoptive homes or temporary foster placements is critical. Our largest animals, the big dogs, are always the hardest to find placement for.” 

The animal welfare officials will also be covering the cost of spay/neuter surgeries, vaccinations and microchips for all adopted pets.   

The Bill Atkinson Animal Welfare Center is located at 884 Winder Highway in Lawrenceville. To learn more about adopting or fostering a shelter pet, visit GwinnettAnimalWelfare.com .

Augusta City Commissioners are considering a proposal to help decrease the kill rate at their animal shelter, according to the Augusta Chronicle.

Best Friends Animal Society is offering a grant valued at almost $1 million to provide training and support to the shelter staff, Gina Burrows, Southeast regional strategist for the organization, recently told the commission.

“The reason that we are here in Augusta … is that in 2023, Augusta Animal Services had a save rate of 53.8% for the year. That meant that 46.2% of the animals entering the shelter didn’t make it out alive,” she said. “It ranks No. 1 in Georgia and No. 32 nationwide for shelters with the highest lifesaving gaps.”

The information for those rankings comes from the Georgia Department of Agriculture, which requires county-run animal facilities to report their efforts monthly, Burris said. The ranking was determined by comparing the same information from counties throughout the state.

In March, Best Friends completed a three-day assessment of the shelter. They compiled the information and produced a 32-page report with the problems they found and offered solutions.

Now they are offering a program valued at $910,898 to tackle the issues. There is no cost to the city, Burrows said.

Animal Services Director James Hill told commissioners he has concerns about the proposal.

“I do feel like the process was rushed. There wasn’t proper communication. We didn’t have time to discuss the information presented. There are several things in the recommendations that we are practicing,” he said.  “And if I must be honest, as the Animal Services director and based on my 20 years of experience in the animal control field, there are certain … red flags as far as public safety. And those things cause me great concern.”

The issue will go back to the Public Service Committee at its May 28 meeting.
