From the Rescue:
IF YOU APPLY FOR THIS PUPPY, it will most likely not be available by the time you are approved. However, your approval would be good for any availble puppy or dog that is a good fit. Apply at your own risk based on this information.
Introducing the The Kids Next Door! They are a litter of 9 true Heinz 57′s surrendered to our rural West Georgia shelter. They have done really great in our care and thankfully have not had any major health or medical issues, which is rare for a country litter of puppies.
They are very sweet and playful. They love when you come to visit them and seek attention and petting. They were a little wild when they arrived, but have settled in nicely.
We don’t know anything about their parents.
We ESTIMATE adult sized to be:
35 ish pounds – 5, 7, 8
45 ish pounds – 1, 4, 6, 9
They are currently healthy and doing very well in our care.
Glynn County Animal Control announced it has reached capacity and is seeking help in getting dogs and cats out, according to The Brunswick News.
“Right now, with the number of cats and kittens that are coming in, (pet welfare group) No-Kill Glynn County is completely full,” said Tiffani Hill, animal control manager.
“The Humane Society (of South Coastal Georgia) doesn’t have any room for more cats so there’s not an opportunity for them to get pulled by another org.”
There’s no short-term fix. Currently, the shelter is looking to find new foster homes to help raise kittens and puppies until they are big enough to undergo spay and neuter surgeries, after which they will be put up for adoption.
Fostering doesn’t come with any charges. Animal control will cover the cost of any necessary supplies so it only takes an investment of time.
For more information on adoptions, pet fostering and future spay/neuter programs, contact the animal control shelter at 554-7500.
Rosie is a cutie that loves people. We were told that she did not get along with the other dogs in the house. This could be totally situational, and we are more than willing to allow a meet and greet if you have other dogs!
Dolly, the inspiration for the Adoptable Dog being designated the Official State Dog of Georgia made her first public appearance yesterday with Senator Renee Unterman, who is currently running for Congress in the Seventh District.
Dolly is an alumnus of the Gwinnett County Animal Shelter and was featured on GaPundit as an adoptable dog in November 2012.
Dolly rates Senator Unterman 13/10 “would vote for”.
Please note the Gwinnett County Animal Shelter is currently open by appointment only.
If Kevin was a high school student, he’d certainly be a track star. He loves nothing more than to get out of his kennel and race you to the other side of the yard. This lean boy is faster than you may think, and certainly bigger than even he realizes. He is a giant lap dog that is easy to please and always has a smile on his face to let you know he’s ready to stick by your side. He is anxiously awaiting a home where he can relax, make new friends and play until the sun sets.
Peanut (above, male Chihuahua mix) and Sarge (below, male Shetland Sheepdog and Beagle mix) are best friends who hope to be adopted together from the Humane Society of Northwest Georgia in Dalton, GA.
Sarge and Peanut, would love to remain best buddies forever. They have been with each other throughout their lives and we wouldn’t dream of separating them. Ranger is a three year old male tri-color Shelty/Beagle mix and medium in size. His partner, Peanut, is a small male blond Chihuahua mix. Both are calm, quiet and affectionate and very well behaved. They would both love to be in a new home soon. Well socialized, they are good with dogs, cats and children.
Sarge and Peanut keep each other comforted and entertained. Daily walks or time playing outside in a fenced in backyard are all the exercise they require. Balls are an obsession so keep those well stocked. They like to snuggle together for naps and sleep well through the night. If looking to adopt this perfect pair, please go to hsnwga.org to complete an online application to be preapproved. Sarge and Peanut are looking forward to meeting you!
Ricky is a handsome six month old male Labrador mix and quite a character. He came into the shelter with his best pal, Lucy. Lucy is the more outgoing of the two, and helps to make shy Ricky feel more confident. It would be nice if they could be adopted together, but not necessary.
Ricky is a very affectionate puppy once he gets to know you. He still needs some training but is eager to learn and very treat motivated. Because of his large size and energy, we feel Ricky would be most suited for a family with older children. He is a dog that requires plenty of exercise and attention. Daily walks and active play sessions will need to be part of his daily routine. A fenced in yard would help him burn off some additional energy.
Bruno is a blonde loveable Lab-mix who is very playful and loves everyone. He would make a wonderful companion for a family with older children as his energy may be too much for the little ones. This athletic two year old needs an active household where running, hiking, or outdoor games are a part of the daily routine. The exercise will keep him from boredom which can lead to mischief.
Bruno prefers not to be alone; another doggie pal would ease his anxiety and help keep him entertained at times when you are busy or away. Bruno loves to wrestle and play tag with his play group buddies at the shelter. A secure fence at least six foot tall will be required to keep him safely inside his own yard. Bruno would benefit from obedience training and would also likely enjoy agility. He already knows some basic commands and is housebroken.
