Gwinnett County Animal Shelter is hosting 24 refugees evacuated from South Carolina, according to the Gwinnett Daily Post.
Some Georgia organizations are assisting refugees and evacuees from Florence, according to The Brunswick News.
Virginia Schlegel, executive director of the Coastal Georgia Humane Society, said its South Carolina counterpart was looking for places to take its animals to get them out of the path of Hurricane Florence.
Humane Society staff and volunteers rented a vehicle to go with the one it already has and took off to Myrtle Beach at 4 a.m. Tuesday. They came back with the load of pets at around 5 p.m. that evening.
The “refugee” pets will be available for adoption in one to two weeks, said Sharon Mathews, animal care specialist for the Humane Society.
Lynn Heth, Humane Society shelter director, said they were so thankful for all the help they’d gotten during Hurricane Irma that they wanted to help other shelters out. The Coastal Georgia Humane Society currently has around 65 dogs and 76 cats total, though some are in foster homes, she said.
Sasha is a year-old, 65-pound female German Shepherd Dog who is available for adoption from Walton County Animal Control in Monroe, GA. She will need to be spayed, and she’ll need an understanding home that can help her feel safe.
Statesboro Police Department has the cutest new recruit – a Bloodhound puppy has joined the force, according to the Statesboro Herald.
Local dog trainer and breeder Michael Duncan, a former law enforcement officer, donated the pup to the Statesboro Police Department because “they didn’t have a dog just for tracking,” he said. “I live in this town, and I hope to one day see a headline that Red’s pup helped find a missing child or someone who wandered away from a nursing home.”
The pup isn’t just an everyday bloodhound. His sire is K9 Red, Duncan’s personal tracking dog that has become a local celebrity. Red has an impressive record when it comes to tracking people, and several regional law enforcement and other agencies across the Southeast contract Red and Duncan on a regular basis to help find lost children, missing persons or fugitives from the law.
“Over the last couple of weeks, meetings and conversations have taken place with Chief Mike Broadhead and Deputy Chief Rob Bryan of the Statesboro Police Department. During these meetings, I decided to donate and train a bloodhound puppy from K9 Red’s recent litter,” Duncan said. “This will be the first bloodhound for the Statesboro Police Department and its duties will be single- purpose tracking of criminals, missing children and elderly subjects that are lost.”
The department is taking suggestions from the public via its Facebook page on what to name the little fellow, and three of the top names will be submitted for a final public vote, he said.
