Ivy is a young female Shepherd mix puppy who is available for adoption from the Oconee Regional Humane Society in Greensboro GA.

Ivy and siblings wandered onto a Good Sam’s property when they were young pups. The family worked on socialization and, ultimately, getting the pups to ORHS. The babies spent their first week simply getting used to being inside and around people. We’re venturing towards getting used to leash walking! Ivy is a very special puppy who needs a special adopter who has the willingness and ability to continue his socialization journey.

Dyson is a young male Beagle mix who is available for adoption from the Oconee Regional Humane Society in Greensboro GA.

Meet Dyson! His rescuers discovered early on that Dyson had a severe heart murmur. He pulled through his neuter surgery and visited a cardiologist who diagnosed him with an Atrial Ventral Septal Defect (AVSD). His poor little heart is working overtime and his future is uncertain. Dyson takes a beta-blocker daily, and will eventually need additional medications. For now, the doctor said Dyson can live an ordinary life. We’re looking for someone to give Dyson an EXTRAORDINARY life for as long as he’s with us. Dyson is a sweet, special boy who hops out of bed every morning excited for the day. He is currently being fostered by the rescue group’s Dog Director and tags along to work to be spoiled by the rest of our staff and volunteers.

Pattycakes is a 10-month old, 45-pound female Terrier and Labrador Retriever mix puppy who is available for adoption from the Oconee Regional Humane Society in Greensboro GA.

Meet Pattycakes, the sweetiepie! Pat is about 10 months old and 45 pounds. Pat still quite puppyish, and is working on basic manners, like not jumping up or pulling on leash. But, she is treat motivated and ready to learn!

Sparky is a young male Labrador Retriever mix puppy who is available for adoption from the Animal Rescue Foundation Inc in Milledgeville, GA.

Sparky is a super sweet wiggly puppy. He is neutered and up to date on shots. Unfortunately, this sweet boy has been diagnosed with Megaesophagus, which means that he will need a special chair to eat and be upright for at least ten minutes after eating. The rescue group will provide the chair. He does require a special owner, but luckily his case seems to be pretty mild. His only treatment is upright eating and sitting in his chair or being held upright for about 10 minutes after eating.

Meatball is a young male Beagle and American Bulldog mix puppy who is available for adoption from the Animal Rescue Foundation Inc in Milledgeville, GA.

Meatball is an absolute doll! This chunk is a typical puppy that can be a little timid in new situations. He knows how to walk on a leash and is excited to start his new life!

These two sweet seniors are Sassy (black Lab-looking dog) and Nick. Sassy and Nick are available for adoption at Lifeline’s Community Animal Center in Atlanta, on the north side is the Chamblee/Doraville area.

I can’t imagine a better way to celebrate the holidays than by fostering these two sweethearts. I bet the shelter would love to have a foster for these two while they look for their forever home.

Sassy may have been ‘sassy’ in her youth, but senior Sassy is as sweet as can be. At 10 years old, she’s seen her fair share of life and has decided that she would like to spend her retirement in a comfortable bed and with a never-ending fountain of treats. Sassy came to Lifeline’s Community Animal Center because her owner passed away. As you can imagine, coming to a shelter after a happy life at home must be intimidating and scary. Even so, Sassy is happy to enjoy the little things in life. Will you be Sassy’s new life companion?

Nick may not be winning any agility awards at the ripe ‘ole age of 13, but he will definitely win over your heart! Nick came to Lifeline’s Community Animal Center because his owner passed away. As you can imagine, coming to a shelter after a happy life at home must be intimidating and scary. Even so, Nick will stand by you as you give him long, slow pets, and you can visibly see his apprehension shedding off with each stroke. Will you be Nick’s new companion?

Foster is a male Rottweiler & 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. He loves kids and people but does take a moment to work up to some men occasionally (twice sincehe has been in rescue). Would be a great dog for anyone looking for a constant companion. He loves to go for walks and is such a great listener. He is so sweet and if you are on couch he will just lay his head on you and chill. He has to be with someone or another animal constantly. He will go lay his head on the other dogs in the house or sit so close he is touching them.

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

Stella is a very sweet girl who is loving and great with all people and cats. She walks well on leash and would be a great jogging/walking campaign.

Good golly, Miss Molly!! This pretty brindle 3 year old girl is hoping for her fur-ever family to find her. Molly is an active yet quiet girl, who will sit by your side and loves for belly rubs. She is affectionate and just wants to be loved. She has passed basic obedience training and loves to please. She knows sit, down, and leave it – she sometimes gets a bit excited and doesn’t “leave it” as long as she should becasue she wants to be near her human. Molly would do best in a home with older children, she likes other dogs but may be fearful of larger dogs, walks well on a leash, but would enjoy a back yard in which to run and play. Molly Ann weighs approximately 40lbs, is spayed, microchipped, up to date on vaccinations, crate & house trained.

Porkins is a young male Terrier and Boxer mix puppy who is available for adoption from Dirt Road Doggies Rescue, INC in Gillsville, GA.

Hello there! My name is Porkins! I was dumped on a dirt road in the middle of cold January with my momma and siblings.Don’t let my size fool you I am a chubby little baby. I love to be the center of attention but I do get along well with other dogs. I love love treats all shapes and sizes. Rub my belly and I will be your best friend forever. I have such big feet you know I am going to be a big boy! My foster momma says I have a cinnamon roll butt!

Casanova is a young male Terrier and Boxer mix puppy who is available for adoption from Dirt Road Doggies Rescue, INC in Gillsville, GA.

My name is Casanova and I am an old fashioned lover boy. I was dumped on a dirt road in the middle of cold January and have been staying with my foster parents since. My favorite thing to do is to snuggle up against you and gaze lovingly into your eyes. I am around 10 months old and am already big so you know I’m going to be a big boy. Did you see my coloring? Isn’t it gorgeous?

I love wrestling with my brother and momma so if I have a playmate they should be near my size. I don’t mind being the only pup though but know you will be my world and I need to be the center of attention. Couples and older kids encouraged because I have been known to rough house from time to time.

Jinx 9385 is a large male mixed breed dog who is available for adoption from PAWS Humane in Columbus, GA.

Hey everyone! I’m Jinx, a wonderful, sweet boy with a heart of gold. I’m from Animal Control originally but I’m happy to be at Paws to wait for my forever family. I can seem shy at first, but I promise I just want lots and lots of love! I also have a bunch of energy and like to run around and have a good time with people and other dogs! And bonus: I walk well on a leash and harness. I know I’ll make an excellent family dog for someone, maybe it’s you!

PAWS Humane Society in Columbus collected more than 40,000 pounds of pet food it will distribute to local pet owners, according to WTVM.

CEO of Paws Humane Society Tricia Montgomery says they received 40,000 pounds of animal food to give out to people in the community.

The animal pantry had different types of animal foods from cats all the way to horses. They also gave away animal supplies such as dog crates, toys, and gates.

Montgomery says they typically serve more than 300 families in the community. She says a big reason the food pantry exists is because people sometimes abandon or surrender their animals because they can’t afford to feed them.

“Whether that’s providing food, or litter, or crates, or anything that helps them lessen the cost and lessen their own ability to put out their own money, we want to be able to do that,” Montgomery explained. “Our goal is to keep pets in the home. Our goal is not to have animals come in and out of the shelter.”

Columbus City Council is considering whether to allow PAWS Humane to take over animal shelter operations, according to the Ledger-Enquirer.

The council on Tuesday approved a measure that authorizes the city manager to continue negotiations with PAWS. A second ordinance introduced during the meeting would change Columbus codes to allow the nonprofit to oversee animal control operations.

In statements to the Ledger-Enquirer, PAWS neither confirmed nor denied that it is negotiating with the city.

The changes have been in the works for months. The city first sought bids for the animal control contract in April and received only one bid. Planning and discussion between the two parties have pushed the takeover timeline back.

Councilor Walker Garrett recused himself from Tuesday’s animal services negotiation vote because he serves on the board for PAWS Humane.

PAWS would lease the city’s animal shelter. The nonprofit would be responsible for the equipment, vehicles and other structures inside the shelter, like HVAC and plumbing. The city would be responsible for the shelter’s roof, foundation and exterior walls.

PAWS would be responsible for increasing and maintaining staff levels for field and shelter operations. If the contract is approved, current animal control staff members can apply for positions within the private company. The division is understaffed, Goodwin said. Shelter services such as animal intake, calls to trap or retrieve animals and all other animal services currently handled by Public Works would fall to PAWS. PAWS is also expected to adhere to several performance standards. Some of those include decreasing euthanasia rates.

If approved, PAWS is expected to take over operations in January 2022.

Ansley is a 6-month old female Retriever and American Bulldog mix puppy who is available for adoption from The Humane Society of South Coastal Georgia in Brunswick, GA.

Ansley is so sweet, loves people, and really loves any attention she can get from anyone. She has done great with other dogs and would be a great family pet!

Webster is a 11-month old, 60-pound male Coonhound mix puppy who is available for adoption from The Humane Society of South Coastal Georgia in Brunswick, GA.

Webster was surrendered due to his family moving. He is still just a puppy at 11 months, so you can expect lots of puppy energy from him. Webster also has the puppy personality that loves meeting people, and even other dogs. He already has a few best doggie friends at the shelter. Webster has obviously had some training, as he responds to some commands such as sit and stay.

Joplin is a young, 40-pound female American Bulldog mix who is available for adoption from The Humane Society of South Coastal Georgia in Brunswick, GA.

Joplin  is a stunning black and white beauty with an amazing personality to go along with her good looks. Joplin would likely be best with an active family to keep up with her. She is high energy and is also still learning to walk on a leash. We would strongly suggest a harness for Joplin, to make life more pleasant for her and her new family. She may be 40 pounds, but she is still a puppy where it counts! She seems to do well with other dogs, but of course we always suggest a meet and greet if you have current pets.

Chief is an adult male Shepherd mix who is available for adoption from the Humane Society of Harris County in Hamilton, GA.

I am playful and loving. I know my basic commands sit and stay. I like most dogs; however, I require a meet and greet with your current dogs just to make sure. I do not like cats. I have allergic dermatitis which previously caused me to lose a lot of my hair. I need to remain on flea and tick control and eat a limited ingredient senior food for the rest of my life to prevent any flare ups. I have received cytopoint injections and medicated baths to improve my skin condition in the past. But we do not know yet if this will need to continue.
