Adoptable (Official) Georgia Dogs for June 17, 2019

Turk MBAC

Turk is a young male Labrador Retriever mix puppy who is available for adoption from Macon Bibb County Animal Welfare in Macon, GA.

Chico MBAC

Chico is a young male Labrador Retriever mix puppy who is available for adoption from Macon Bibb County Animal Welfare in Macon, GA.

Bodetus MBAC

Bodetus is a young female mixed breed puppy who is available for adoption from Macon Bibb County Animal Welfare in Macon, GA.

Macon-Bibb County may have to euthanize some animals due to an influx at the shelter, according to the Macon Telegraph.

A recent influx of stray dogs has the shelter overcrowded, and unless some are adopted soon, a few dogs in the adoption area will have to be put down to make room for more coming in. The shelter has a stray side and an adoption side, each of which hold 50 dogs.

The stray side is for those surrendered by owners or picked up and are waiting for an owner to reclaim, or they may be tied up with court cases. If they aren’t claimed, or the court cases are resolved, the dogs are tested to determine if they are safe around other animals and people. If they are, and have no major health issues, they go to the adoption side. The shelter will keep them there for as long as possible until space becomes an issue. They have kept dogs as long as three months.

Belew is pleading for anyone thinking of getting a dog to consider adopting from a shelter. She said shelter animals are good pets, and she has adopted two dogs there herself.

“They are so grateful when they come from a shelter because they’ve been here and they don’t understand why and they’ve been let down,” she said. “When you adopt them and you give them a family and a home, all these things that they’ve never had, they are just the best dogs.”

Adoptable (Official) Georgia Dogs for June 13, 2019

Anthony Coastal Pet Rescue

Anthony is a 9-week old male German Shepherd and Pomeranian mix puppy who is available for adoption from Coastal Pet Rescue in Savannah, GA.

Sierra Coastal Pet Rescue

Sierra is a 9-week old female German Shepherd and Pomeranian mix puppy who is available for adoption from Coastal Pet Rescue in Savannah, GA.

Gina Coastal Pet Rescue

Gina is a young female Shepherd mix puppy who is available for adoption from Coastal Pet Rescue in Savannah, GA.

Gina was rescued from a graveyard and is growing up to be an awesome little dog!

Her foster family has worked with her to help her come out of her shell and learn to be trusting of humans.
Smart and quick on the uptake, she has learned “sit,” “wait,” “go,” and “trash” when it is time to dispose of her baggies.

Of course, it’s easier for her to follow commands when she’s not around a lot of people or other dogs because she LOVES other dogs, and would probably do best in a home with another canine playmate to play with.

Gina will continue to flourish with someone who understand she still needs a little time, patience and lots of love.

Smokey is a 7-year old male Black and Tan Coonhound who is available for adoption from the Hall County Animal Shelter in Gainesville, GA.

For the third consecutive month, the Hall County Animal Shelter achieved a 90 percent live release rate, according to AccessWDUN.

On February 28, the Hall County Board of Commissioners formally adopted many of the recommendations set forth in an independent assessment of the Shelter by Best Friends Animal Society.

“We were thrilled to learn that Hall County Animal Shelter’s save rate has been 90-percent for three consecutive months after adopting our recommendations,” said Carrie Ducote, Senior Manager of Georgia for Best Friends Animal Society. During the Feb. 28 meeting, Ducote had said mentioned moving toward achieving a 90 percent “save” rate.

“Hall County is a great example of how any county can achieve a high rate of live outcomes with dedicated leadership, community support and a shift in shelter policies. It’s through partnerships like this that the state of Georgia and the entire country can reach a 90-percent save rate by 2025.”

At the recommendation of Best Friends, Hall County instituted a Community Cat Program to effectively control the feral cat population and a Managed Intake Program, which ensures all possible avenues are exhausted before an animal is surrendered to the shelter.
