Adoptable (Official) Georgia Dogs for April 8, 2024

Augusta Animal Services held an adoption event this past weekend to prevent euthanazing animals, according to to WJBF.

According to the Augusta Animal Services Facebook page, the shelter is at maximum capacity and will be open for adoptions only, in an effort to free up kennels for intakes and prevent euthanizing for space.

All adoption fees are $20 and must be paid in cash only.

Available pets are up to date on shots, spayed/neutered, microchipped, and Heartworm tested.

Friends of Augusta Animal Services posted an update on Facebook:

HUGE, HUGE SHOUT-OUT to the community and volunteers that came to Augusta Animal Services or visited the Dog and Cat Networking events today and adopted one of our precious dogs/puppies/cats from the shelter. You opened your homes and SAVED LIVES! Between the two events TWENTY (+) (20+) kennels are now vacant!

Not only did you save the life of the one you took home but these empty kennels save the lives of 20 more who they can now intake without a need to euthanize for space (at least for the short term).

However the sad reality is this. These empty kennels could be full in 24-48 hours. Augusta Animal Services WILL BE doing spay/neuter daily this week so Tuesday-Friday (9th-12th) additional dogs/puppies/cats will be added to the adoption floor. If you have been thinking about adopting, DON’T WAIT, come and meet you new best friend. Without adoptions dogs/puppies/cats/kittens die. For Monday (8 April) SAM and ARLO are looking for their fur-ever family; there are no cats available. THANKS AGAIN to everyone. Visit your local shelter, AAS is open 12-4 Monday-Saturday for adoptions.

Roxie is a young female mixed breed dog who is available for adoption from Macon Bibb County Animal Welfare in Macon, GA. For what it’s worth, I’ve had dogs with similar-looking skin conditions that were resolved with some veterinary attention, better diet, and better living conditions.

Georgia is among the top states for the number of dogs and cats killed in public shelters each year, according to the Macon Telegraph.

Georgia had the fifth-most animal killings in shelters in the U.S. in 2023, according to data from Best Friends Animal Society. That year, the state euthanized more than 19,000 cats and dogs.

Tracey Weathers, the shelter manager at Bibb County Animal Services, said shelters euthanize animals for a variety of reasons, but the most common in municipal shelters are public safety concerns and a lack of space in the shelter.

“Municipal shelters have to euthanize because they have a responsibility to the public,” Weathers said. “They’re picking up sick, injured, aggressive animals, and then the ones that are good, they can only hold them for so long before they have to make room for more animals that need to come in.”

In 2023, Bibb County Animal Services took in about 2,351 animals, according to their annual report. The shelter tries to reduce the number of animals euthanized by partnering with rescues to place animals in foster homes and find permanent families. However, while it’s been effective, it doesn’t totally erase the problem. The shelter still had to euthanize 631 animals last year.

Weathers said that in her experience, shelters are more likely to have to euthanize dogs due to the safety threat they present if they become aggressive. Additionally, shelters tend to take in more dogs than cats.

Some scumbags broke into the Albany Humane Society and stole three puppies, who have since been returned, according to WALB.

Following a break-in at the Albany Humane Society on March 19, three stolen puppies have been safely returned.

According to the Albany Police Department, the puppies were returned after someone called the humane society stating they “wondered in their yard.” WALB is currently unsure if the individuals who returned the dogs received the reward money.

As of now, no one has been arrested for the incident, but they do have a person of interest, 30-year-old Darius Parker.

The front door of the humane society is still in need of repair. After getting a quote for $1,000, and with the shelter being a non-profit, they’re asking for help from a glass company here in Dougherty County, or surrounding counties.

Clara is a young female Labrador Retriever mix puppy who is available for adoption from the Fayette Humane Society in Fayetteville, GA.

Clara is a great puppy! She already knows how to “sit, is crate trained, sleeps through the night in crate, and is working on house training. She is confident and does well with small dogs, big dogs, and every person she’s met! Her foster family has 2 teenagers and she is great with them and their friends and she’s been good with neighbors’ younger kids,

She weighs around 19 lbs right now and is in a mouthy stage, so might not be good with little kids, but she’s not afraid of them. She’s affectionate, funny, sweet, and curious. He foster family adores her and knows that a forever family will adore her too! She is now almost 4 months old and is a mixed breed.

Blue Raspberry is a young male Labrador Retriever mix puppy who is available for adoption from the Fayette Humane Society in Fayetteville, GA.

Blue Raspberry is looking for a home! He is a sweet and cuddly boy who loves to play with other dogs. He shares his foster home with his siblings and a few other foster dogs and he LOVES to wrestle with them. He is working on housetraining and he sleeps through the night in his crate.

He is almost 3 months old and is sweet and gentle. He is pretty calm for a puppy and loves to cuddle! We think that he would be good with kids and cats. We are not sure what breeds he is mixed with, but he and his siblings look a lot like Labrador mixes. We think that he will reach roughly 50-60 pounds when full grown.

Purple Rain is a young female mixed breed puppy who is available for adoption from the Fayette Humane Society in Fayetteville, GA.

Purple Rain is a fluffy ball of LOVE! Rain is sweet, gentle, and calm. She likes to play with other puppies and gets along well with adult dogs. While no puppies are “low energy”, she is pretty laid back. We think that she would do well with cats and kids. She is food motivated and knows how to sit on command for treats. She LOVES to sleep with her people at night. She is still working on potty training and needs to be taken outside frequently Rain is currently almost three months old.

What is she mixed with? Who knows! How big will she get? Who knows! Her momma was a feral dog who we only know is a large black lab/shepherd/bully breed mix. We just know that she will be a big dog!
