Meet Aidan (formerly known as ‘Blaze’). He was one of many fortunate animals rescued from a hoarding situation by Homeless Pets Foundation about a year ago. I was hesitant at first to adopt a 2 year old dog from such a difficult background–I was concerned he would have behavioral issues. But, Aidan is a complete sweetheart–he loves sunbeams, taking walks, and snuggling up to me while I am reading a book. “Rescue” really isn’t the right word to describe Aidan–he has given us so much more than we did him. -Carrie Fanin
Dr. Phil Good, owner of Town & Country Veterinary Clinic, received his Bachelor of Science with highest honors in Chemical Engineering from Georgia Tech in 2006. Phil finally came to his senses, realizing he’d much rather work with animals than in a chemical plant. Dr. Good obtained his doctorate in veterinary medicine from UGA in 2011.
And just like that we say so long to the last of the Cairn Terrier mix litter AND their mama, Charlotte. The cute gal holding baby Griffin saw him online and it was love at first sight. Mama Charlotte caught the eye of the cute gal on the right at our Petsmart adoption event Sunday…
The family who picked Troy spent a long time picking out which of Toni’s eight babies was the perfect one for them. They’re looking to mend hearts broken from having to say goodbye to their family dog a few months ago. Best wishes to the new family! Thank you for adopting.
Have you ever felt happy and sad at the same time? That’s how our volunteer who bottle-fed all those motherless pups feels this weekend as she places each of the beautiful babies into the arms of their new families. Congrats to Dory and her new people! Hopefully we will get updates, progress reports and pictures…
