Baby Paws and Stars Animal Rescue

She is about 5 years old and weighs between 45 and 50 lbs.

Max Paws and Stars Animal Rescue

Max is a male Jack Russell Terrier and Wirehaired Terrier mix who is available for adoption from Paws and Stars Animal Rescue in Lawrenceville, GA.

Max is a 5 year old Jack Russel/Wire-haired terrier mix boy, 18 lbs, who was surrendered to us because the new wife of the previous owner didn’t want dogs in the house and so they got kicked out in a dirt pen in the yard. Max got surrendered with his female companion Maggie. They are very bonded but due to the fact that they are very scared of everything new they are depending so much on each other that in their case it can be a hold back for them to get out of their comfort zone and explore new things. It would be not a terrible thing to break them up and adopt them out separate but they are also available as a pair.

Maple 2 Cedartown Animal Rescue

Maple is a young female Labrador Retriever mix puppy who is available for adoption from Cedartown Animal Rescue, Education & Sterilization in Cedartown, GA.

Maple is a precious puppy who is a part of a litter of 5 that were all saved from a local kill shelter. Their estimated date of birth is 8/13/20. At 3.5 months old, Maple currently weighs 25 pounds and has a gorgeous, shiny black coat with a bit of white on her nose, chin, chest and belly.

Friendly & sweet, Maple loves everyone she meets. She is used to being crated at night and playing in a safe, fenced yard during the day with other dogs. Maple is fine with the other pups here and should be fine with cats and other animals if introduced as a puppy. Maple is crate trained, sleeps on a big orthopedic bed and has lots of toys and a fluffy bed in her crate that she does not chew.

Evander Cedartown Animal Rescue

Evander is a male Dachshund mix who is available for adoption from Cedartown Animal Rescue, Education & Sterilization in Cedartown, GA.

Evander came from a local shelter where his owner surrendered him. He came in with the injury to his ear and this is the way he came to CARES when we pulled him from the shelter. Unfortunately too much time has passed to try to suture it. The vet advised his rescue to simply leave it alone and it will heal. We told Evander this makes him extra special!

Evander is a young male – about 1-2 years old. He is crate trained and has been good about outside potty. He came in a bit timid when being handled so we are still getting used to walking on a leash. Sporting a beautiful black coat with just a bit of white on his chest, Evander looks to be a beautiful Dachshund mix. This boy is full grown at only 11.5 pounds.

Evander has been good with all the dogs at the rescue, however he would be best suited for a home with no cats.

Caroline Cedartown Animal Rescue

Caroline is a young female Catahoula Leopard Dog & Hound mix who is available for adoption from Cedartown Animal Rescue, Education & Sterilization in Cedartown, GA.

Caroline is currently 48 pounds at 11 months old (DOB 11/13/19) which is probably her adult weight (she could actually stand to lose a few pounds). She has a gorgeous black & tan coat, walks well on a leash and is crate trained, In addition she does very well in the house – she is house trained and doesn’t chew. Caroline is playful, adores toys and enjoys playing in a fenced yard. Caroline is a sweet girl and loves attention.

Caroline can be particular about dogs when first meeting them but is okay with several of the dogs at her rescue group. However she was adopted once and returned for “growling” at their other dog (we feel she wasn’t given enough time to acclimate before returning) so she may be better suited as an only dog or in a home with an older bigger dog that she likes. Caroline is treat motivated and already knows sit & down. She is a precious pup who deserves the very best home.

Droopy Hooties Haven Animal Rescue

Droopy is a female Chihuahua mix who is available for adoption from Hootie’s Haven Animal Rescue Inc. in Rome, GA.

Droopy is a huge snuggle bug, so she needs someone who’s willing to let her snuggle on the couch or under the covers at bed time. She also needs someone who’ll understand that we do not know her past so allowing her time to settle into her new home is a must. I promise, it’ll only take a week or so to see her love shine. She weighs about 20 pounds, but she’s 20 pounds of pure love. 

Molly Hooties Haven Animal Rescue

Molly is a female Chesapeake Bay Retriever and Labrador Retriever mix who is available for adoption from Hootie’s Haven Animal Rescue Inc. in Rome, GA.

Molly is such an amazing girl! She will play fetch for hours. She LOVES her balls & KONG toys! She had an accident as a puppy and she has issues with her back left leg but you would never know it. She is so toy driven that as long as you play ball, she will do anything else you want her to do! This girl grew up in a car as her human was homeless. She deserves a home and family that will love her as much as she is going to love you!

Amy Hooties Haven Animal Rescue

Amy is a female mixed breed puppy who is available for adoption from Hootie’s Haven Animal Rescue Inc. in Rome, GA.

Jersey Furever Match

Jersey is a male Terrier mix who is available for adoption from Furever Match Inc in Dallas, GA.

Hi there, my name is Jersey! I’m 8 years young and such a southern gentleman! You can count on me not jumping and taking my business outside. I like the outdoors, but I’m also happy just snuggling up on the couch watching some good ol’ reality TV. I don’t mind sharing my space with other pups if I’m not your one and only. As long as I get some belly rubs, I’m good to go!

Harlem Friends to the Forlorn Pitbull Rescue

Harlem is a senior male French Bulldog who is available for adoption from Friends To The Forlorn Pitbull Rescue Inc. in Dallas, GA.

Harlem is the perfect lap dog for someone looking for a good nap companion! He loves to curl up and snuggle. For the most part, he is very laid back, but gets the zoomies every now and then – which is super cute. He loves to chase balls and is happy to lay down and chew on his kong. He does great with his harness and walks well with the leash – he loves to go on walks! He is housetrained and does well with whining at the back door when he needs to go out.

Harlem does have something known as reactive aggression with other dogs. He would need to be an only dog or a companion to someone with a very submissive dog. He does well with his foster brothers, who are very submissive, so he could be tested depending on the companion. He is easily triggered by hyperactivity and will growl/snap with toys, treats and his food. Knowing this, he would do well in a home with older kids, as he gets startled by lots of commotion and loud noises. He can also get a bit nippy when he is excited.

Camo Friends to the Forlorn Pitbull Rescue

Camo is a male American Staffordshire Terrier mix who is available for adoption from Friends To The Forlorn Pitbull Rescue Inc. in Dallas, GA.

Camo is a fantastic, goofy boy. A Wisdom Panel DNA test revealed that he is 100% American Staffordshire Terrier. He has a medium energy level and is well-behaved in the home. He loves to play a good game of fetch as it’s his all-time favorite activity. Seriously, the ball is life! Although he is not overly demanding in his exercise requirements, he does benefit from a bit of daily exercise. A simple 15 minute session of fetch with a Chuck-It is enough to keep him happy. He actually seems to enjoy (and is quite good at) walking on the treadmill too.

Camo also loves toys and will entertain himself for hours with a plain and simple Kong. He still thinks he is a small puppy and is not aware of his massive size, but he is a super-snuggler and will happily lounge on the sofa with his family.

The Jail Dogs Program of the Gwinnett County Sheriff’s Department adopted out the 1000th dog since its founding, according to the Gwinnett Daily Post.

The Jail Dogs reached its 1,000th dog adoption amid a handful of adoptions from the program that occurred on Saturday. Officially, the total number of dogs adopted through the program has hit 1,001 as of Monday, according to Deputy Cody Walker, who has overseen the program for the last three years.

The milestone dog was Timber, a brindle colored terrier mix.

Jail Dogs began in 2010 and Jail Cats came along in 2013. The programs currently include 23 dogs and four cats. The numbers can fluctuate at any given time, however, between 12 and 30 dogs and one to 10 cats.

“We teach the inmates how to train the dogs and how to take care of the dogs,” Walker said. “We have an amazing group of volunteers that come in and volunteer a lot of their time to do training, grooming and all of these things, and the inmates are actually learning these skills also, especially training and just how to care for something.”

“Some of these guys have never really had anything to care for before, and you give them the responsibility of a dog and it really changes their mindset. It gives them something positive to focus on while they’re incarcerated.”

Bella Gwinnett Jail Dogs

Bella is a 9-year old, 76-pound female German Shepherd dog who is available for adoption through the Jail Dogs program in Gwinnett County, GA.

Sweet lovable Bella is ready for the next chapter of her life. She was pulled from a local shelter where she spent months waiting on someone to come and make her their very own. Bella was taken into the Jail Dog program where we have found how very intelligent, loyal and loving she is. She would do best with a family that is familiar with the German Shepherd breed and possibly as your one and only furry family member.

Daphne Gwinnett Jail Dogs

Daphne is a 2-year old, 42-pound female Hound mix who is available for adoption through the Jail Dogs program in Gwinnett County, GA.

Daphne is a local rescue that is ready for a new chapter in her young life. It appears that she has had a few litters of pups in her short time but was never given the love and attention she deserved. She is very shy right now, but her handler is bringing her out of her shell.

Scrappy Gwinnett Jail Dogs

Scrappy is a 6-month old, 38-pound male Dutch Shepherd and Terrier mix who is available for adoption through the Jail Dogs program in Gwinnett County, GA.

Scrappy is a gorgeous brindle baby that has more energy than he knows what to do with! He is all puppy and is giving his handlers a run for their money when training with him. His primary handler states that Scrappy is extremely sweet and loving when he is tired from a very busy day of play. “He needs an active family that will keep working with him while he is a puppy. Scrappy is doing well with training but has proven difficult at times to work with because he has such a short attention span” his handler says.

Foster Rottstars Rescue

Foster is a young male Rottweiler and Labrador Retriever mix who is available for adoption from Rottstars Rescue in Buford, GA.

Foster is a sweet loving 2 year old male mutt. He is a loyal buddy and wants a person. He will follow you everywhere (literally) and be your best friend. He loves other dogs but he chases my cat and I have taught him no cat, but I would not want him in a home with cats as he would constantly chase them. He loves kids and people but does take a moment to warm up to some men occasionally.

Coco is a young female Labrador Retriever mix who is available for adoption from Rottstars Rescue in Buford, GA.

Coco is a very sweet girl who is loving and great with all people and pets.

Woof! I am Max! I am a low rider. I am people picky when I first meet you but I warm up quickly. I like friendly dogs and older kids. No little rug rats for me. I haven’t been exposed to felines so I don’t know how I will react. I am house broken and crate trained. I am available to move into your home immediately. My bags are packed. Call or text Evelyn’s Place Rescue at 678-776-6244 if you would like to meet me for a margarita (water on the rocks) or for a walk around the block.
