Penelope is a
funny-looking dog pig who is available for adoption from Macon-Bibb County Animal Welfare in Macon, GA.
D’Andre makes being an excellent good boy seem so easy. The staff love him. He’s a breeze to take care off. We found him at a metro county animal shelter and were drawn to his gentle demeanor. He’s very attentive to his human friends and smart and playful without ever being too much. If you want to play, wonderful. If you want to just chill on the couch, that’s fine, too. He follows your lead. D’Andre seems comfortable with other dogs, but we’ve not had time to evaluate his play skills one-on-one with another dog. He’s not leash-reactive and walks nicely and politely beside you, grateful to be out in the fresh air.
D’Andre seems crate-trained, which is a big plus right out of the gate. His one challenge is that, like many shelter dogs, D’Andre hasn’t always known where his next meal was coming from, or if he’d even have a meal. So, he sometimes be protective of his food, fearing you will take it away from him. This is a behavior that is quite common and can typically be worked out with a good feeding routine. But, because he’s still learning to be comfortable about sharing food, we would like D’Andre to go to an adopter who doesn’t have young children in the home, so there will be no feeding time misunderstandings. This dog is a dream. He’s so good.

Gentlemen – if you messed up and have not yet gotten flowers for your significant other for Valentine’s Day, it’s not too late. But this is your last warning.
The Gwinnett County Animal Shelter is discounting adoption fees for Valentine’s Day through Saturday, according to the Gwinnett Daily Post.
Those looking for a new pet will be able to take home a dog or cat for $2.14, a significant reduction from the regular $45 adoption fee for dogs and the $20 cat fee.
In addition to the discounted prices, on Saturday, the shelter will have gifts for newly-adopted animals, as well as a photo backdrop to capture “joyful Valentine moments (with) these pets as they depart to their forever homes,” the shelter said in a news release.
“Adopting is a gift for both the pet and your Valentine,” said Alan Davis, manager of the Gwinnett County Animal Welfare and Enforcement Division. “Giving a home to a shelter pet is a memorable gift from the heart.”
Adopters can usually take their new pet home on the same day of adoption upon completion of paperwork and adoption counseling. All pets adopted from Gwinnett County Animal Welfare are spayed or neutered, have a microchip and are vaccinated.
State Senator Kay Kirkpatrick (R-Cobb) has introduced “good samaritan” legislation, according to the AJC.
State Sen. Kay Kirkpatrick, R-Marietta, has proposed an amendment, Senate Bill 32, that would protect citizens from a lawsuit if they damage a vehicle to rescue an animal in danger.
She said the idea came out of the Senate committee studying whether laws were needed to regulate service or support animals. Kirkpatrick said she has a 14-year-old golden doodle therapy dog named Dobie, “so they put me on that committee.”
As she looked into the current protections for animals, “I started noticing that there was nothing in there for someone trying to rescue an animal in distress.”
Kirkpatrick said she is adding language to an existing law protecting those who rescue children from cars. It was passed in the wake of the high-profile death of 22-month-old Cooper Harris, who was killed by his father Justin Ross Harris in a hot car in Cobb County during 2015. Harris was sentenced to life without parole.
In her bill, anyone who breaks a window to rescue an animal in distress must also call 911 to be immune from civil liability.

Glynn County Animal Control received a $2000 dollar donation to pay for 80 adoption fees, according to The Brunswick News.
“The next 80 adoptions will be free to the adopter because they’re already paid for by Peacock Productions,” said Tiffani Hill, animal control manager.
Jane Vicent, Peacock Productions’ director, handed over a mock check to Hill Monday, closing out the 2018 Puppies and Pinups fundraising campaign.
“I’ve had a blast doing it,” Vicent said. “I’ve put on fundraisers for different organizations here in Glynn County, but most of them are for this group or No Kill (Glynn County) or other animal shelters, but this has been by far the biggest. It’s been a long process, but it’s been fun.”
If the public adopts 79 more animals, Hill said the shelter would be much emptier.
“We could clear the shelter. Honestly, we could almost completely clear the shelter if people took advantage of this,” Hill said.
