Adoptable (Official) Georgia Dogs for July 14, 2020

Rome Public Animal Welfare Services will have limited public hours and health screening for visitors due to COVID-19, according to the Rome News Tribune.

Public Animal Welfare Services at 99 North Ave. is opening its doors to the public Monday through Friday from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.

It’s a compromise schedule — to increase the chances of a pet adoption but to lower the risk of coronavirus exposure. Director Jeff Mitchell said they have been sanitizing each cage in the facility as often as possible to prevent any spread of COVID-19 among the animals and employees.

While the public can visit the facility to look at the adoptable pets, everyone will have their temperature taken before entering and be asked a series of questions relating to their potential COVID-19 exposure.

Cricket Companion Animal Rescue Madison

Cricket is a young female Labrador Retriever mix who is available for adoption from Companion Animal Rescue, Inc. in Madison, GA.

I’m Cricket!  I used to be called Corn Cob, but I think Cricket is a much better name for me! I like to run and would be a GREAT hiking partner because I am spectacular on a leash! 

I like to play with other puppy friends, and I am very playful, especially when toys are involved. I also CRAVE attention, so I’m always down for a good belly rub! 

I am kennel-trained, but I like to take my blankets everywhere with me, so sometimes I need help putting them back so I can be all snuggly for my sleepy times. 

Because I have so much energy and I just want to love you, sometimes I can get a little rowdy, but I am starting basic training classes, so I’m going to learn how to control my jumps. I am treat motivated, so learning will be a breeze.

Buster Companion Animal Rescue Madison

Buster is a male German Shepherd Dog mix who is available for adoption from Companion Animal Rescue, Inc. in Madison, GA.

I’m Buster, and I am just a big ol’ bundle of pure joy! I’m about 5-6 years old, but I still have a TON of energy and I LOVE to play ball! I have lots of other doggy friends that I like to play with. All people are my favorite people, and I also love to play with kiddos.

I am a big boy at 85 pounds, but I’m really just a big baby who wants to play ALL DAY! I am also VERY loyal, so add that to the pro column along with how very handsome I am!

Jack Companion Animal Rescue Madison

Jack is a male American Foxhound mix who is available for adoption from Companion Animal Rescue, Inc. in Madison, GA.

I’m Jack, and I am the goodest, goofiest boy! I have boundless energy and I’m ALWAYS up for playtime! When I’m not playing, though, I am crate trained and like to take a little snooze in there! 

I LOVE chasing things, which can be scary for cats and smaller dogs. I don’t know my own strength yet, so my big paws can get a little risky. Speaking of my strength, I am VERY strong! If I see a bird or a butterfly on my walks, sometimes I end up taking my person for a walk instead of the other way around. 

My other favorite thing is fetch! I freaking love that game! I can play it for hours!! When I finally get tuckered out I am super good at the cuddles. If we’re just hanging out, I will lean into you and nuzzle you for pets. Getting ear scritches is very calming for me.

Recommend children 8 years and older.

Cash Money PAWS Atlanta

Cash Money is a young male Jack Russell Terrier mix who is available for adoption from PAWS Atlanta in Decatur, GA.

Butter PAWS Atlanta

At 4, Butter bonds quickly with people who will spend time with him, engage him, and really get him. He is so crazy intelligent, he craves a job, or something to do – whether it’s training, or playing fetch in the yard, or going for a run together. Doesn’t matter. He needs that sense of purpose and connection.

Swain BarkVille Dog Rescue

Swain is a 7-year old, 50-pound male Jack Russell Terrier & Australian Shepherd Mix who is available for adoption from BarkVille Dog Rescue in Roswell, GA.

Swain was picked up as a stray in Cherokee County and his future looked bleak until BarkVille was able to step in and place him in a wonderful foster home where he is putting on weight and regaining his strength. His foster mom says Swain is an inquisitive, quiet, snuggler who is good on a leash, knows basic commands, and likes to maneuver his blankets with his paws & teeth to make himself a pillow! He is a medium energy boy who likes playing fetch and destroying balls & toys in the yard (kongs recommended). He is housebroken, crate trained, neutered, fully vaccinated and microchipped. Swain is HW+ and is currently available for a foster-to-adopt situation until his HW treatment is complete and he is medically cleared for adoption.

Neely BarkVille Dog Rescue

Neely is a 2-year old, 58-pound female Terrier and Boxer mix who is available for adoption from BarkVille Dog Rescue in Roswell, GA.

Neely is a calm, cuddly, medium energy dog who was taken from an unlivable hoarding situation and has proven herself to be a very good girl. She gets excited when her foster mom comes home from work and is willing to do anything to please her people. She is a solid, chunky little low rider and needs a forever family without young children (teens are fine) because she plays hard & can knock a small child over when she jumps with joy. She also needs to be an only pet because she does not like other dogs in her space. She loves to take walks, is working on her leash manners daily, and does well with corrections when structure is given. She loves treats and will accept them gently from your hand in a sitting position.

Bella Rose BarkVille Dog Rescue

Bella Rose is a 3-year old, 39-pound female Cairn Terrier mix who is available for adoption from BarkVille Dog Rescue in Roswell, GA.

Bella Rose was picked up as a stray, but we believe she may have been someone’s pet because she has beautiful house manners and is friendly & obedient. She likes people of all ages, knows basic commands, is eager to please, and takes corrections well. She is a typical scrappy little terrier, but she gets anxious when she sees other dogs and she has scars on her back that suggest she may have been attacked by another dog in the past. She has a high prey drive so she’s looking for an only dog home with no cats or possibly a home with larger, well balanced dogs that she could coexist with after slow introductions. She is nervous & reactive on walks and has received professional training to address this behavior, but she needs a strong leader who will continue working with her to build trust so she feels safe.

Nana Furever Match Dallas GA

Nana is a female Labrador Retriever mix who is available for adoption from Furever Match Inc in Dallas, GA.

My name is Nana. I’m heartbroken that my family left me behind to die in a shelter. I lived my whole life with them and loved them so much… I’m sure they must have had a good reason. I am a sweet girl that is fully vetted and crate trained. I may not be the youngest girl out there but the doctor says I have many good years left. I would love a family to love unconditionally! Maybe I’ll get lucky enough to find someone to curl up by a fire with. Could that be you? Please say it is…

A dog has tested positive for the novel Coronavirus, according to the Capitol Beat News Service via the Savannah Morning News.

The state Department of Public Health said Wednesday a six-year-old mixed breed was tested for coronavirus after developing a fatal neurological condition. The agency did not say where the dog resided.

The dog was tested after its owners also tested positive for the virus and was euthanized due to the neurological condition, which was unrelated to COVID-19, according to the agency.

Pets and wild animals do not pose a significant threat to spreading COVID-19 among humans, according to the federal Centers for Disease Control (CDC). Research is still being done on how easily the virus can spread from humans to animals.

Health experts advise people who contract COVID-19 to avoid touching their pets and have a relative or friend take care of them.
