She has so much love to give but needs a patient FURever home to help her continue to trust that she will be able to live the life she deserves.

She would make a good pet for a family with kids who only want one dog or an older couple who would like a companion to keep them company. Lendy is current on all vaccines and spayed. If you think Lendy would be a good fit for your life, fill out the adoption application.

The Humane Society of Valdosta/Lowndes County is teaming up to create a jail dogs program, according to WALB.

They partner with Hamilton Correction Facility in Jennings, Florida to train rescued dogs, preparing them for successful adoptions.

The program is called “Hamilton Hounds, New Leash On Life”.

The humane society gets the dogs from Lowndes County Animal Shelter, then they pair them with two inmates and stay partnered for 10 weeks.

“It’s really focused on giving the dogs the best chance, helping Lowndes County Animal Shelter with euthanasia rates, and helping them to be able to out as many animals as possible and the handlers also get the benefit of working with the dog,” said [Humane Society Lead Dog Handler Tori] Grindle.

Those benefits include life-long animal advocacy, education, and experiences.

It also helps provide emotional and mental health benefits for the inmates.

“One of the inmate handlers for one of the dogs was telling me just how everything felt different. He felt like a human being for the first time in a long time and that’s huge. This place is heartbreaking and for them to have this to wake up to every day,” said Grindle.

On graduation day, families will visit the prison, meet the handlers and learn everything the dog has been taught.

Grindle and Rooney hope the program continues to expand and be able to save more dogs.

If you’re interested in adopting one of the dogs in the program, a pre-adoption event will be happening soon.

You can learn more about the program and meet the dogs. It’ll be announced on the Humane Society’s Facebook Page.

The following dogs from the Humane Society of Valdosta/Lowndes County are not graduates of the jail program, but are fine best friends nonetheless.

Jack is an adult male mixed breed dog who is available for adoption from the Humane Society of Valdosta/Lowndes County in Valdosta, GA.

Dixie is a 46-pound female mixed breed dog who is available for adoption from the Humane Society of Valdosta/Lowndes County in Valdosta, GA.

Hazel is a ten-month old female Labrador Retriever mix puppy who is available for adoption from TLC Pet Rescue in Stockbridge, GA.

Meet Hazel! Most of her siblings have already been adopted except her and her sister Haggie. Unfortunately she was recently returned to our rescue because she wasn’t comfortable around the families young children. Young ones quick movements and loud gestures make her nervous so she needs a home without children. Older children 16+ would be fine. Although she is shy, she loves to play with other dogs and that’s when her tail wags the most! We would like to see her in a home with another dog as we don’t think she would do well being the only dog. A confident sibling would bring out the best in her! She loves to play in her fosters fenced in yard. Hazel is house and crate trained.

Winnie is a young female Labrador Retriever mix puppy who is available for adoption from TLC Pet Rescue in Stockbridge, GA.

Winnie is one of the 4 puppies we recently rescued from the Dominican Republic. They are all around 5 months old. Winnie is a female mix that weighs approx 25 lbs and will most likely be around 45-50 fully grown. Winnie is a very sweet and shy girl. She takes a little to warm up and has made a long journey to the US so you can’t blame her! She has been able to play with a lot of dogs in her foster home and does well with them. We think she would do best in a home with another dog for companionship and confidence! She would be fine around children but younger toddlers may be too much for her. We can cat test her as well for interested adopters.

Forest is a young male Black Mouth Cur & Carolina Dog mix who is available for adoption from TLC Pet Rescue in Stockbridge, GA.

Forest is a 9 month old black mouth cur/ Carolina dog (our best guess) that we just sprung from the shelter. He was on his last day facing euthanasia and no puppy deserves that. This boy currently weighs 55 lbs and will gain a little bit more before he’s fully grown. Forest is a total love bug! He loves everyone he meets and is super dog friendly. He could also care less about cats and just ignores him. He also loves toys and stuffies! Forest walks well on leash and would make a great companion for an active person and/or family. He is also house and crate trained.

Adoptable (Official) Georgia Dogs for October 20, 2021

Wade is a male Terrier mix who is available for adoption from Baldwin County Animal Control in Milledgeville, GA.

Wade is a beautiful fawn and white pittie boy with soulful eyes! He’s a playful pup that loves spending time with our volunteers and playing in the yard. Wade does well with other dogs, however he is not submissive to other males if they’re sassy first since he has not yet been neutered. Wade is a sweet boy that walks well on a leash, he even sits and gives paw on command!

Adoption fee: $150; includes spay or neuter, vaccinations (dhlpp and rabies), deworming for intestinal parasites and flea treatment. Heartworm test (including first 30 days of prevention) can be added for an additional $20.

The Baldwin County Animal Shelter is often operating at capacity, this means that for every dog or cat that comes in, another must leave via rescue or adoption, or risk being euthanized for space. Multiple dogs and cats come to the shelter EVERY DAY, which means animals must also be moving out at the same rate. Unfortunately, sometimes there are larger adult, “pitbull” or mix-breed dogs that are continually overlooked for their younger or more “adoptable” counterparts. Please consider adopting a new best friend today!

Bansai is a male Boxer mix who is available for adoption from Baldwin County Animal Control in Milledgeville, GA.

Bansai is a young adult, male boxer mix appox 2 years old and 55 pounds. He has a playful, silly personality and ears to match! Bansai is neutered, up to date on vaccinations, heartworm negative, current on prevention and ready for a family to love him!

Bansai loves people and loves to play with female dogs, but can be a little bit selective with his male doggie friends. Since Bansai really loves to play hard and wrestle with his friends, he would do best in a home without small dogs, cats or small children, though he is not aggressive.

Jack Jack is a senior male purebred Rottweiler who is available for adoption from Baldwin County Animal Control in Milledgeville, GA.

Jack-Jack is a full-blooded male rottweiler (with a cropped tail) that came to the shelter because his elderly owner passed away. He is 7.5 years old and approximately 150 pounds. (He is a bit overweight, but he’s also a BIG guy.) Jack-Jack is neutered, up to date on vaccines and friendly with people, including strangers, in the shelter environment. He even walks nicely on a leash and mostly tries to avoid your fingers as he takes a snack from them! BUT he is typical of his breed and must get to know a person before they attempt to “control” him. AND he will be territorial in his home environment. *For these reasons, rottweiler or mastiff breed experience is required.* A meet and greet with existing dogs will also be required. ABSOLUTELY NO CATS.

Fiona is a medium-sized, young female American Staffordshire Terrier & Black Mouth Cur mix who is available for adoption from Hands to Paws Rescue in Augusta, GA.

Fiona is a sweet girl who steals the hearts of everyone she meets. This special girl needs a strong, dedicated leader who can give her the structure she needs. She is friendly with all dogs and all people. She has a lot of anxiety due to her past that comes out through high energy, so she benefits from strict structure and direction.

She is doing great in her foster home with lots of guidance and exercise. She is incredibly smart and obedient and has good door manners. She loves to run and explore but will also cuddle you and give hugs. She is good off-leash and in the house. She is an amazingly kind and loyal dog who just needs a leader to follow.

Cleatus is a male Terrier mix who is available for adoption from Hands to Paws Rescue in Augusta, GA.

Cleatus is estimated to be about 2 1/2 years old. He’s a good boy and loves people, but can be a little too much smaller children. He would love to be a lap dog even though he’s close to 55lbs. He knows how to sit and wait at doorways (on leash) and walks well on a harness. He goes to his crate when asked and doesn’t put up much of a fuss. He loves car rides and going for walks. After careful introductions, he warms up to other big dogs but he’s not good around small animals such as cats and poultry. He needs a home preferably with another doggo friend. He is heartworm positive and will be undergoing treatment

Sycamore is a young male Labrador Retriever mix who is available for adoption from Hands to Paws Rescue in Augusta, GA.

This goofy, young 1.5 year old is ready for adoption! He is a beautiful and sweet boy with spurts of boundless energy and couch potato laziness! Oh well! He deserves to be lazy as he had a rough start in life… Rescued at four months he had been hit by car with and suffered a broken hip. Veterinarian is waiting build up of strength and muscle mass before determining course of action. Rescue will take on responsibility of treatment once the best course of action is determined. Sycamore loves to play with his squirrel toy and his foster sisters Trixie and Shirley. He does best with dogs that are submissive. And due to his strength and size no children under eight.

He is doing very well with his potty training (but everyone makes mistakes sometimes) and doesn’t mind hanging out in his crate during the day with some toys to chew on. He’s a young guy and loves playing with and chewing on toys.

Peppie is a 10-year old senior male Poodle mix who is available for adoption from the Circle of Friends Animal Society in Greensboro, GA.

Peppie and Nana (Chihuahua) are a bonded pair. Their owner passed away and no one in the family wanted to take them on. They are both seniors but still very playful and friendly. Peppie is 10 yrs old and Nan is 7 yrs. They are both easy dogs and would really like to stay together. They are currently in a foster home and doing well with all the other dogs. If you have room in your heart and home for two please consider this pair. Their shelter will do a special adoption fee of $250 for the pair to keep them together.
