Adoptable (Official) Georgia Dogs for December 11, 2017

Vogel

Vogel is a male Labrador Retriever mix who is available for adoption from Athenspets in Athens, GA.

Vogel is a handsome, energetic boy who loves to run! After being in a kennel, he needed to get his energy out and ran circles around the interaction pen. Holding up a stuffed squeaky toy got Vogel’s attention, and he put the brakes on waiting for me to throw it. When I did, he was such a clown running and tossing the toy in the air to catch. He was having a blast and loved making it squeak. I’d trade a treat for the toy to throw again, and he’d continued his show.

Vogel is a happy, fun dog. He’s lived with other animals including two cats, a beagle, and a bird. He’s already neutered, heartworm negative, and current with his vaccinations. Come play with Vogel and have a great time!

ChelseaAthens

Chelsea is a young female mixed breed puppy who is available for adoption from Athenspets in Athens, GA.

Adeline

Adeline is a senior female Hound mix who is available for adoption from Athenspets in Athens, GA.

Adeline is a sweet, older dog who loves being with people. Stop at her kennel gate, and she’s quick with a smile hoping that you’ll take her out. She’s happy doing her own thing in an interaction pen, but call her to you and give her pets and treats, and she really lights up. When Adeline would see me reach into my treat pocket, she’d immediately sit wanting to impress. She also knows how to lie down for a bonus reward. Adeline was friendly to June and other dogs at the fence and is a good-natured dog. If you’re looking for a sweet, older companion who walks nicely on a leash and is a joy to be around, come meet Adeline!

Clementine

Clementine is an adult female pibble mix who is available for adoption from All About Animals Rescue in Macon, GA.

Clementine is one of the most adorable dogs ever and a favorite at her shelter! Why, do you ask? SHE IS AMAZING. 1) she LOVES to play catch with tennis balls. If you don’t to play, that’s okay with her, because she can do it ALL by herself! She throws the ball and goes to get it. It might be the cutest thing I’ve ever seen. 2) She LOVES water. When she is around one of the kiddie pools, she flops in the pool and rolls around and then jump out and rolls around in the sand and grass and repeats this process until she is satisfied. 3) She’s ALWAYS in a cuddly mood and when she wants you to pet her, she leans against you and relaxes her body while you pet her. Sometimes, when she’s really relaxed, she just totally falls over. 4) She thinks she’s a lap dog. Again, she’s always cuddly. So when you sit, Clementine sits with…on…you. Come meet this sweet girl! A shelter is NOT a place for a personality like this.

Augusta Animal Services will partner with Fix Georgia Pets to spay and neuter some local dogs.

The department launched a fundraising effort with Fix Georgia Pets, a statewide nonprofit in Atlanta, to neuter and boost spay efforts for pit bulls and other “bully” breeds in Richmond County.

According to Sharon Broady, the director of Augusta Animal Services, these sort of dogs have become “extremely popular” in the Augusta area.

“Along with this popularity comes overpopulation and rejection, and the dogs often end up on the streets or at our shelter,” she said in a news release. “In addition, if the dog is not spayed or neutered, it can produce unwanted puppies that enter our facility, as well.”

Crystal Eskola, assistant director for Augusta Animal Services, said funds will be used to help fix pets in the community and limit overpopulation at shelters.

“Not pets that are already at the shelter but pets that somebody might want to keep if it was fixed,” she said. “We’ve got so many animals coming in through our front door, so they wanted to work with us on the intake diversion method which would reduce the population so we don’t have as many coming into the shelter.”

As part of its fundraising efforts Fix Georgia Pets, whose mission is “to end overpopulation and stop senseless euthanasia in the state,” will match contributions dollar-for-dollar, up to a maximum of $10,000 and potential impact of $20,000.

Donations can be made one of four ways:

  • •By donating via credit card, debit card or personal check online here.
  • •By making a check payable to Fix Georgia Pets, and mailing it to 4164 Mack Lane, Augusta, GA 30904
  • •By purchasing a $5 raffle ticket at Wild Birds Unlimited at 3830 Washington Road, or Art on Broad at 1028 Broad Street in Augusta.
  • •By visiting www.orangecatwraps.com and donating $50 or more to receive a wrapped, pet-themed Christmas ornament in a gift-wrapped box that can be given as a holiday gift.
