Golden Boy is aptly named for his golden good looks and sunny disposition. He’s an energetic, lovable boy not shy about expressing his enthusiasm for everything life has to offer. Volunteers shared that he is not only a golden boy but a lover boy. He gave our photo team lots of kisses and loves pets and butt scratches. He has a big, friendly, goofy personality and loves people especially if they are going to give him some attention. He enjoys playing but mostly just likes being around people. Meet Golden Boy and see if he’s the perfect boy for you.
You can always count on Dewy to roll over for belly rubs! He is a big bundle of fun and promises to be the most loyal companion! He enjoys long or short walks right by your side and is known for his hilarious zoomies. Once he is settled in a home he is a pretty low maintenance dude. He is very chill and really just likes to hang out near his people. He is super smart– house trained, crate trained, & knows tons of tricks. Dewy would do best as the only pet in your home so he can hog all your love. Set up a meet & greet with Dewy and his foster family to make him yours!
The following dogs are highly likely to be euthanized if not rescued immediately.
Irwin is an 11-month old Hound mix puppy who is available for adoption from the Polk County Animal Shelter in Cedartown, GA. If someone adopts this hound, I’ll personally make sure they are reimbursed the adoption fee.
Arizona Diamondback is a male mixed breed puppy who is available for adoption from the Humane Society of Northeast Georgia in Gainesville, GA. If he were my dog, I think I’d say he’s a Lab mix.
Mayor McCheese is an adult male mixed breed dog who is available for adoption from the Humane Society of Northeast Georgia in Gainesville, GA. Looks like a Hound mix to me. In fact, he looks a lot like Dolly.
Royal Animal Refuge has a number of other puppies available for adoption.
Marlon is looking for an active home. He is fully grown at approx 45 lbs. He is dog and kid friendly. His prior owners stated he had separation anxiety when left alone so we think a home with another dog would be best for him. Boxers have a lot of energy and need exercise! Marlon is house and crate trained- he has learned to not enjoy his kennel but we are working on it with him.
Jedi is looking for an active home. He is full of puppy energy and being an active breed we want him with owners who can keep up with him. He is extremely smart, treat motivated and doing great with walks on leash. He is also crate trained! He would do fine in a home with other dogs, cats or children.
Holly and her sister Dahlia were rescued at the last minute (literally) before euthanasia. Fosters stepped up and we are so thankful we could save them! These girls are the absolute sweetest! We believe they are a mix of boxer/lab/staffordshire terrier. They are currently being treated for mange but their skin is healing up beautifully already! We don’t expect them to be too big fully grown. They will most likely be in the 40-50lb range.
Holly is super social, playful and has the cutest ears that stand up! Her ears make her personality even better! She loves playing with her sister and will make a great addition to any family. Her foster family is working on house training her and she is crate trained. She would be fine in a home with other animals, children and cats. Her foster mom has been leash walking her with a harness on and she is doing great!

This beautiful lady is named Taylor. While a tad shy at first (who wouldn’t be in such a strange new place?), she blooms immediately into a sweet, affectionate girl like the lovely flower that she is! Her beautiful, unique coat is even more mesmerizing in-person, and she’s got the personality to match. When you meet her, she’ll eagerly show off how well-mannered she is, but she’d love to (and will very quickly) learn more tricks than just a very patient sit. Taylor is quiet and calm in her kennel, to boot. Come meet this precious angel soon – we guarantee you’ll fall in love! She can be found in kennel 8, ID# 639389.
Are you looking for your best friend? Someone sweet and also a head turner? You are in luck. Let me introduce you to this sweet and beautiful girl we are calling Emmy Lou. She was lost and brought to the shelter on 9/9/22. Emmy Lou is eager to please and learns quickly. She would love to learn more when you bring her home. You just need to be patient and give her time because she is still a puppy. Emmy Lou is current on vaccines and is already spayed. She will be micro chipped and heart worm tested upon adoption. Come and see what this little girl is all about, fall in love with her and make her yours forever. She will be waiting in Run 333 and her ID is 639431.
This beautiful lady is named Sylvia. She happens to be the SWEETEST, smartest dog in the whole, wide world. Don’t believe us? Come meet her and she’ll prove it to you! Don’t let those sad eyes fool you – Sylvia adores giving and receiving love and attention, and she’ll happily show you her sit, lay down, stay, and shake. Sylvia was turned into our shelter as a stray, but clearly owned and loved at some point. How could her previous family not be desperately looking for her? We have no idea. What we do know is that whoever adopts this angel is going to be the luckiest person/family in the world. She can be found in kennel 77, ID# 639488. Make an appointment quickly for this girl!
