Sonny is a 3-4 year old male Hound and Shepherd mix who is available for adoption from the Washington Wilkes Humane Animal Shelter in Washington, GA.

Sonny was adopted from [the shelter] and we are not sure what happened, but he came back as a stray. We were told his adopters had him tied up outside , but we really have no idea of his situation ( he will not go back there). He is now looking for new home where his situation will be better. Sweet, friendly boy who is 3-4 years old, UTD with shots, dewormed, neutered , heartworm negative and microchipped. Active boy with a good bit of energy and would be good companion for an outdoor type person. Not great with other dogs, so he does need to be the only dog.

Douglas is a 5-6 year old male Labrador Retriever mix who is available for adoption from the Washington Wilkes Humane Animal Shelter in Washington, GA.

Douglas showed up at someone’s house and they brought him to the shelter. After a month, his tailed developed a severe case of kennel tail and we amputated it. His docked tail gives him a Doberman look, but we think he is more Lab. He is 5-6 years old, UTD with his shots, heartworm negative, neutered and chipped. Really sweet boy, likes to play, good on a leash and good with other dogs, but he does play rough and that could be intimidating to a smaller dog.

Miguel is a year-old male Hound and Labrador Retriever mix who is available for adoption from the Washington Wilkes Humane Animal Shelter in Washington, GA.

The Humane Society of Northeast Georgia is launching a fundraising campaign, according to AccessWDUN.

“It kicks off with ‘Giving Tuesday’ where we try to raise about $30,000 in one day,” Mayfield said. “Our board matches that campaign … And then after that, it rolls into what we call our ‘PAW-liday Giving Trees’, which is more of items that the shelter needs like blankets, and bleach and food and leashes and things like that. And then we also include in that our ‘Home for the Holidays’, where we really try to get our animals out of the shelter for the holidays to relieve some stress, and maybe some Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner with the family.”

Mayfield explained that the organization hopes to use the funds and donations from the campaign to combat overpopulation within the shelter.

“We are seeing that intakes of animals are up across the nation and adoptions are down across the nation,” she emphasized. “And it’s no different for us at the Humane Society of Northeast Georgia. And so with these funds, you know, we do several things.”

Ace is a young male Labrador Retriever mix puppy who is available for adoption from Coffee Cause for Paws in Douglas, GA.

Ace was rescued in the nick of time. Two wire cables were tied/tangled around his back legs. This could have caused serious injuries to him. Thankfully, he has made a full recovery. He still has a slight limp and possibly a permanent scar but he doesn’t notice it, and it surely does not slow him down while playing with the other pup in the home.

Ace loves attention. He’s shy with introductions, but is a total lap baby. He’s fully vetted, neutered, heartworm negative, and microchipped. Crate trained & leash trained. He’s a survivor and appreciative to anyone that shows him kindness. A humble pup.

Lady is a young female Hound mix puppy who is available for adoption from Coffee Cause for Paws in Douglas, GA.

This sweet, shy, and bashful pup named Lady is looking for her furever home. She has a kind heart and is submissive by nature. A velcro pup that craves love and affection. Not one to venture off either. Her only interest is you and all those that occupy your home. Lady is a hound mix, should be medium in size once full grown and is up to date on her vetting.

Fun facts about lady:

• a people pleaser
• great with dogs of all sizes, cats, and kids
• already potty trained (prefers to potty outdoors)
• quick learner
• playful (loves her toys & to interact w/people)
• her favorite thing to do is cuddle. Especially after getting out some of her puppy playfullness.

Mae is a young female Hound mix puppy who is available for adoption from Coffee Cause for Paws in Douglas, GA.

Mae is a loving hound mix. We believe she will be medium in size once full grown. She was rescued on a lonely dirt road many months ago. A whole litter of tiny puppies found DUMPED. Luckily a good Samaritan rescued them and now CCFP would like to find the final two, Mae & Lady, a furever home.

Mae is so sweet. Playful, quiet, kind & considerate. Just a friendly pup that gets along great with any dog, cat, kid, or thing. A quick learner too. It took her no time to house train. Mae would make a wonderful addition to any household.
