If you ever consider adopting an English Bulldog, I highly recommend checking out Georgia English Bulldog Rescue for adoptable dogs, and just as important, in-depth information about the needs of these dogs. They can be very expensive to care for due to special needs.
An annual dog parade on St Simons Island raised money for No Kill Glynn, according to The Brunswick News.
No Kill Glynn County is a nonprofit, volunteer-driven organization that works to reduce euthanasia of cats and dogs by finding them foster homes prior to them being placed permanently.
Sunday’s parade, with the theme “Viva Paws Vegas” drew about 100 people and their dogs to the neighborhood. While there, dogs walked the red carpet and performed tricks before marching in a parade around the block. Prizes were awarded for best costume, best trick and best in show.
Chandra Kendall, a volunteer with No Kill Glynn County, said the afternoon was a success.
“We had a total of 43 four-legged participants, with a lot of talent, barking and laughs from their handlers,” she said, adding that the event raised around $6,200.

A different event happening tomorrow is Georgia Animal Rescue Day. Note any familiar faces in this pic?
Look at this cutie pie! This cute, quiet little girl is named Felicity. She came to the shelter on 2/13 because she was on a grand adventure and got lost along the way. She is just as sweet as she can be! Felicity is a tad shy but she is playful once she gets to go outside. She needs to continue that playful personality with a family that is active and adventurous. If you have a big backyard, that would make her day everyday! She would like to have that second chance to have a family once again and not stay in a shelter for too long. She is smart little baby as she can sit when asked and she may know more. She would love if you would take the time to teach her what she doesn’t know. Can you help her find her way to her forever home? She would like that so much. Nice bed, lots of toys to play with, good meals and lots of love and attention from you. If you can help her make her dream come true, then she is your girl!
Felicity is current on vaccines. will be spayed, heart worm tested and micro chipped upon her adoption. Come see this little doll and get to know her one on one. She could be the one you have been searching for all this time. She will be waiting for you in Run 300 and her ID is 653643. Felicity is just a year old and weighs 29lbs of pure love!
Meet this sweet little boy we are calling Icarus. Icarus was on a grand adventure to see what the world could offer him and was discovered all alone and kindly was brought to the shelter on 2/13. Sadly, no one has come to reclaim this precious baby. Icarus is 5 years old and weighs just 10lbs. Icarus is very, very sweet and just wants to be held as much as possible. He loves it so much! He is very quiet in his run, never making a sound. He is frightened because of his new environment. He really needs your help in getting out of the shelter so he can thrive into a loving, quieter home. He would be the perfect couch potato to snuggle with. He is a awesome little boy with a lot of gas left in his tank and he is more than willing to share the rest of his life with you. Its what he deserves!! Can you provide him with everything that he needs and more? He needs you now more than ever. Icarus is a smart little guy as he knows how to sit when asked and he may know more. What he wants is for you to be patient with him and guide him for the rest of his life. Love this little boy unconditionally.

Please say hello to the handsome little guy we are calling Montgomery. Montgomery really wanted to explore the world and see what it had to offer but it was cut short and he was brought safely to the shelter on 2/6. Montgomery is 10 months old and weighs 50lbs. He is very sweet and cute. He pretty sad, scared and confused right now and you can see it in his eyes. He cries in his kennel for attention and someone to love. A volunteer is making him feel so loved and wanted by spending time with this precious baby. He is appreciating the affection and he is coming out of his shell. He is very sweet and cute as a button. All he wants is a home and a family where he can grow up the right way and not in a loud shelter.
Puppies are a lot of work and commitment and you need to be absolutely sure that you can be there for him always and everyday. Not when it is convenient for your schedule. He is a smart cookie as he knows simple commands such as sit when asked and he may know more. Montgomery is an awesome baby doll and deserves a home who will take the time to make him feel so special and the best thing in their family. Can you please help him get out of the shelter so he can blossom into the confident young lad we already knows he is? He wants to happy with you and we want that for him too. Please come see him soon and he what he is all about. He is probably the missing piece to your life. He certainly has been patiently waiting for you. He is still a baby who needs a second chance to grow up to be the most awesome pup we already know that he is. Please consider making Montgomery apart of your family forever. He will be forever grateful. He walks well on a leash so he would make a great addition to an active family who will be willing to walk him often and take him on grand adventures.
Montgomery is current on vaccines, will be neutered and micro chipped upon his adoption. He will be tested for heart worms also upon adoption. Please come see Montgomery in Run 16 and fall in love with him. You won’t regret it. Montgomery’s ID is 653488.
Haaaave you met Max?! This is the bestest boy. He’s great on leash, good with other pups, has been fine with kids, not so good with cats. He knows a lot of basic commands and is happy to show them off!
The Albany Humane Society is holding a Valentine’s Day fundraiser, according to WALB.
“When you donate to our ‘Be My Valentine’s Day Fundraiser’ you help mend and heal the broken hearts and souls that come into Albany Humane each and every day,” said [Albany Humane Society Director Payton] Jarrell.
If you’re looking for a last-minute Valentine’s Day gift or just want to support the rescue as your Valentine you can do so by donating to the Albany Humane Society.
“So if you’re giving the gift as a Valentine’s Day to your loved one, you can actually input your email and then they will get an E-Valentines Day Card directly sent to them,” said Samantha Threadgill, Development Director for Albany Humane Society. “It’s for single people if you want to be the valentine of an animal instead of a human or for people who want to give a gift to your loved one.”
The good news is that Valentine’s love is lasting all week for the Albany Humane Society as the campaign will run until Sunday.
