Adoptable (Official) Georgia Dogs for April 26, 2018

Patience SOHFGA

Patience is a young female Spaniel puppy who is available for adoption from the Society of Humane Friends of GA Inc. in Lawrenceville, GA.

Pierce SOHFGA

Pierce is a young female Beagle and Spaniel mix puppy who is available for adoption from the Society of Humane Friends of GA Inc. in Lawrenceville, GA.

Penelope’s six sons are ready for adoption! Mama Penelope is a 30 lb Spaniel mix. There seems to be multiple dads involved in this large litter of eleven! Your guess is as good as ours regarding breed mixes in these beautiful babies. All we know is they are 100% adorable and should grow up to be medium-sized dogs (30-40 lbs most likely). Pierce is looking for a home where his person or family has the time, patience and energy that all pups need to help him grow up to be a great dog.

Charlotte SOHFGA

Charlotte is a young female German Shepherd mix puppy who is available for adoption from the Society of Humane Friends of GA Inc. in Lawrenceville, GA.

Charlotte is eleven weeks old. Her mama is a 60 lb Shepherd mix. We don’t have any info on her daddy. Charlotte is a big girl already and will definitely grow up to be a large dog. She needs a great home with someone who has the time to help her grow up to be a great dog. 

Gillsville City Council has adopted a new animal control ordinance, according to the Gainesville Times.

An ordinance fashioned after Hall County’s animal control law was passed by Gillsville City Council on April 3.

Before the law was passed, some dogs in family yards had barked and growled at local walkers as they passed by, “so we figured it was time for us to get on board” with an animal control law, Mayor Roy Turpin said.

Basically, animals “out and about need to be on a leash, on a chain or penned up,” he said.

If problems crop up, the city will notify Hall County Animal Control “and they will take over at that time,” he said. “They will handle enforcement.”

“lt is unlawful for the owner of any domesticated animal or agricultural animal /to knowingly abandon the animal or commit the act of abandonment,” the ordinance states.

Hoco Azalea

Azalea is a young female Jack Russell Terrier and Chihuahua mix puppy who is available for adoption from the Humane Society of Houston County in Centerville, GA.

Hoco Delilah

Delilah is a young female mixed breed puppy who is available for adoption from the Humane Society of Houston County in Centerville, GA.

Hoco Sam

Sam is a 10-year old, 21-pound male Basset Hound mix low-rider who is available for adoption from the Humane Society of Houston County in Centerville, GA.

The Macon Telegraph writes that Regi Polk is seeking volunteers to help with her Facebook page, Lost Pets in Houston County, GA.

Through her page hundreds of pets — mostly dogs — have returned to their homes, although she doesn’t take the credit. She said that belongs to a wide network of animal lovers who share her posts and spread the word. She doesn’t personally find pets but through her page she is able to match finders with seekers.

“I enjoy making sure that the pets have a chance of getting back home,” she said. “People are really upset and worried when their dog is lost, but when their dog is found, you get really happy.”

People send her the information on pets that are either lost or found, and she then makes a digital poster and puts it on the page, sharing it also with animal control shelters and other lost pet pages. Each post will typically then get shared many times.

Until now she has been a one-woman operation, but she is seeking volunteers to help her. She has one person who just started helping, but she is looking for a few more. That’s because her husband is retiring soon, and he would like to actually go on a trip without Polk constantly checking her phone. Anyone interested in helping can contact her through her Facebook page.

April is a lively, happy dog who enjoys human company, and loves to go for walks. She is a beautiful dog and would be a wonderful addition to an energetic family!

Toby CSRA

Toby is a young male Dachshund or Basset Hound mix who is available for adoption from the CSRA Humane Society in Augusta, GA.

Toby is an 8 year old ball of energy just starting to get his first gray hairs. He had a hard life before coming to the shelter and can be slow to warm up to new people, but once he gets to know you, he is an absolute snuggle monster who can’t wait to get in your lap and fall asleep. Because of his timidness when getting to know you, we recommend Toby only go to a family with older kids. If you think you have the love and patience to help Toby come out of his shell, please feel free to contact us.

“Sgt. Stubby: An American Hero,” an animated film about a stray dog that became a hero in World War I, was produced by a Columbus, GA based studio and is opening nationwide.

“Stubby is the ultimate zero-to-hero story,” Fun Academy founder and producer Richard Lanni has said of the idea behind the wartime animated family film. “There is no greater poster boy for what animals can do when given a chance in life, regardless of their origins.”

PAWS Humane, the animal shelter on Milgen Road, scheduled its own special screening on Thursday evening, with ticket proceeds going to the facility that houses and takes care of both dogs and cats.

A private red-carpet screening of “Sgt. Stubby” also took place Wednesday night in the hallowed halls of the National Infantry Museum in Columbus, located just outside the Fort Benning’s Benning Boulevard security gate.
