Ralph is a year-old male Chihuahua mix who is available for adoption from Coastal Pet Rescue in Savannah, GA.

Ralph is a little lover! Don’t let his high energy fool you. He just craves attention and love and wants to be held and lay in your lap. You wouldn’t believe he came to us from a hoarding situation and terrified of people, because now he just craves human touch and loves to sit in your lap and give kisses.

The Hall County Planning Commission rejected an application to rezone land to permit a dog rescue group, according to the Gainesville Times.

The applicant, Friends to the Forlorn Pitbull Rescue, wants to rezone a 38.4 acre property at 5473 and 5453 Will Wheeler Road from agricultural residential use to planned residential development on land where there are already facilities for dogs such as kennels, a barn and ample space for dogs to exercise.

The nonprofit organization wants to fortify these existing facilities with improved fencing and add one additional building in order to create its rescue center for pitbulls and other kinds of dogs. When complete, the facility would be able to hold 100 dogs.

The organization spays and neuters dogs and tries to find foster homes for rehabilitated pets.

“No one’s going to want to move in next to a humane society type of deal,” said Jerry Young, an adjacent property owner. Young said they often hear dogs barking late at night and a huge increase in dogs on the property would disturb neighbors.

Four speakers from Paulding County, where the rescue has its current facility, spoke in favor of the application, and Paulding’s Commission Chairman, Dave Carmichael, wrote a letter to the Hall County Planning Commission encouraging it to accept the plans.

“I hold Mr. Flatt in high regards and feel confident that his contributions will be of value to your citizens,” Carmichael wrote.

Flatt told the Times Tuesday, Sept. 21, he would regroup with his board and see if it was worth continuing to pursue the application. They may decide to stay in Paulding County, he said.

Eggy is a male Pitbull Terrier who is available for adoption from Friends to the Forlorn Pitbull Rescue Inc in Dallas, GA.

Eggy is strong, sweet, and wagging his tail (or shall we call it a nub!). Eggy loves his shenanigans and his favorite game is ‘keep-away,’ where he will merrily zoom around the yard with his Kong in his mouth, leaving the Palace workers to chase after him when it’s time to come inside. He is looking for a forever family where he can keep on enjoying the good life of a beloved house pet. Eggy has been through more than we can imagine and he is not suited for a home with other pets or small children. If you think you can give Eggy the life he so desperately wants and deserves, contact the rescue group for more information!

Eggy has his own photo album on Facebook!

Chipper is a male Pitbill Terrier who is available for adoption from Friends to the Forlorn Pitbull Rescue Inc in Dallas, GA.

Chipper is almost 5 years old and he is such a cool dog and absolutely beautiful! Chipper is a super smart and happy boy. He is medium energy, loves a good zoomie in the yard and loves a good couch snuggle fest. Chipper went into a foster home back in April 2017 when he first came into our rescue from the shelter. Chipper listens well and would do best with an adult(s) that are alpha owners. Although he gets along well with Snow (his doggie sister) he probably would do best as an only dog. Another dog is a possibility with slow introductions but it may take work. He does not do well with cats or children under 16. He walks OK on a leash but hasn’t been regularly walked in a while. He is housebroken, crate-trained and loves riding in the car. 

Moxie is a female Pitbull Terrier who is available for adoption from Friends to the Forlorn Pitbull Rescue Inc in Dallas, GA.

Due to her deafness, Moxie does startle if she cannot see you coming, however she is extremely loving. Moxie adores people and is getting all the TLC she needs in foster care. She is housebroken and crate-trained. She is an active girl who loves to chase a Kong and play fetch. Sometimes when she runs, she throws both legs back at the same time and looks like a bunny! Although she is deaf, she already knows sit, down, kennel-up, and fetch as she is food-motivated and really wants to make her people happy. She knows how to fetch and doesn’t mind people taking the ball away from her. Once she burns off some energy, Moxie is happy to cuddle and is incredibly sweet. Moxie would LOVE a forever family that can show her the joys of being surrounded by love and stability. She needs someone patient and willing to work with her as learning takes longer due to her hearing loss.

Moxie has her own great photo album on Facebook.

Rufus is a young male Terrier who is available for adoption from Hootie’s Haven Animal Rescue Inc. in Cedartown, GA.

Rufus is awesome! He is great with large and small dogs and he’s very submissive. He shows interest his fosters’ cat but he doesn’t go running after him. We feel it’s more out of being curious. He’s completely housebroken and crate trained. He’s not a talker, so you don’t have to worry about him barking. He is approximately one- two years old and he came to us from a sweet older couple. He was found as a stray and they never could find the owner. He is a bit underweight, but his sweet foster is working to fatten him up some- and he’s loving every minute of it.

Paris is a small female Terrier mix who is available for adoption from Hootie’s Haven Animal Rescue Inc. in Cedartown, GA.

Paris is a true snuggle bug! She loves sleeping with her foster mom and playing with her 4-legged foster siblings. She’s crate trained and 99% potty trained- she’s has one accident in the house, but that was day one of her arrival. Paris is 2 years old and is about 15-20 pounds. She sheds very little.

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

Molly is the longest residing resident at Hootie’s Haven. She came to us after her owner lost his home in a fire and was living in his car with Molly and his other dog. 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 she doesnt let it slow her down one bit! She is so toy driven that as long as you play ball, she will do anything else you want her to do! She does not like to share her toys, so we feel she would do best as an only dog and in a home with no young children.

If you’re on Facebook, you can check out Hootie’s Haven Animal Rescue Inc. there.

Rhea is a young female Labrador Retriever mix puppy who is available for adoption from Furever After Rescue in Macon, GA.

Hi I’m Rhea! I’m a 12 week old puppy that was given to a shelter along with my brothers and sisters when my owner could not keep us anymore. Lucky for me the rescue took us in and I’ve gotten plenty of love and attention since then! I love to play and cuddle. My foster mom even calls me her snuggle bunny because I’m always up for a good cuddle in her arms or lap when I’m not playing. I can be nervous when I meet people I don’t know, but I warm up quickly and then get excited to be with them. I love dogs too!

Aphrodite is a young female Labrador Retriever mix puppy who is available for adoption from Furever After Rescue in Macon, GA.

Hi, my name is Aphrodite but my friends call me Rosie! I am a female that is about 10 weeks old (estimated birthday is 6/16/21), and I currently weigh about 12.5 lbs. I am a lab mix of some sort, but no one has seen my parents so that is just a guess (I was found as a stray with my siblings). I am a total love bug and velcro dog that wants to be curled up beside you or in your lap. I love to run and play outside, but I like to stick close by my humans too. I am still a young puppy so I am still learning tricks like “sit” and working on potty training and walking nicely on a leash. I love to chew on toys too. I am very friendly and love other people, children, and other dogs. I will even play with the cats, so I get along well with everybody.

Gertrude is a young female Labrador Retriever mix puppy who is available for adoption from Furever After Rescue in Macon, GA.

Hi, my name is Gertrude. I am about 5 months old (estimated birthday is 4/8/21). No one is quite sure what kind of dog I am, but the best guess is a lab/pit mix. I am a very happy and energetic little girl. I love playing with everyone and everything. I am very smart! I know how to sit, shake, fetch, and LOVE to do treat puzzles. I am a very quick learner. I can be a little rambunctious at times, but I listen very well and will calm down when asked. I am still learning to walk on the leash but I will walk beside you when I am not on it. I am potty trained and will sleep in a crate through the night.

Sadie is a two-year old female mixed breed dog who is available for adoption from the North Georgia Animal Alliance, Inc. in Fort Oglethorpe, GA.

Sadie is sweet natured but high energy. She had been with an older couple who had some kind of procedure done so she could not bark. She just whines but seems to be learning to bark again somehow. She seems to like other dogs but they have a small Shih Tzu & Sadie is so big she ends up stepping all over her while trying to play with her. Sadie needs to be trained not to jump up on people so she would not be good around small children or elderly people because of her size & energy level until she is trained. She would make a good pet because is loving and desires human attention. She would be a loyal companion sticking close by you. She is house broken as long as you take her out on a regular basis. She enjoys squeaky toys.

Cheddar is a male mixed breed dog who is available for adoption from the North Georgia Animal Alliance, Inc. in Fort Oglethorpe, GA.

Cheddar was originally named Growler. He got his name from the noise he makes when he’s being petted and loved on. He’s very affectionate and likes attention. Very energetic and rowdy. Loves wrestling and playing with his siblings. He has strong watchdog instincts, and barks when someone pulls up the driveway. He thinks he needs to let you know when anyone is around outside. He’s not a bad barker he’s just very observant of who and what is around his yard. He likes chasing sticks and balls in the yard and tugging a rope. He is being re-homed because he does not get along well with his brother, a large bull mastiff. He is okay with his sister, a medium boxer. He weighs about 85 pounds, up-to-date on vaccines and HW prevention.

Boscoe is a year-old, 35-pound male mixed breed dog who is available for adoption from Emily’s Friends in Chickamauga, GA.

Boscoe is a very shy guy and he is a dog that will come and lay next to you and wants to be petted, but he does not like to be picked up. MUST HAVE FENCE! He has been on his own probably since he was a pup, living in a mobile home park but was never owned by someone, only fed by the people that lived there in the neighborhood. He never has had a bed to sleep on, he would sleep under decks and cars. Boscoe will need patience and someone that is willing to work with him, if you want a challenge, he is the dog for you. He lives with other dogs now and gets along with them just fine. Boscoe does love to get up in the bed and snuggle beside his foster mom on the pillow. He is a great boy who deserves a wonderful home.

Bella Boop is a large senior female Labrador Retriever and Terrier mix who is available for adoption from the Newnan-Coweta Humane Society in Newnan, GA.

Bella is great with people, dogs and cats.

Millie is a senior female Collie mix who is available for adoption from the Newnan-Coweta Humane Society in Newnan, GA.

Millie is a sweet old gal. She is heartworm positive but at her age we opted to treat with a monthly treatment which is much easier on the dog with no activity restrictions. We would continue to pay for this until she tests negative which is between 6-18 months using the treatment. Millie would like a quiet home with no small children or high energy dogs to live out the remainder of her years. She does fine with lower energy dogs.

Buddy is a male Carolina dog and Chow mix who is available for adoption from the Newnan-Coweta Humane Society in Newnan, GA.

My name is Buddy. I am a sweet mellow boy who does great with people and other dogs. I would love to lounge around and take naps with you. If you think I might be a for fit for your home please fill out an application.
