Buster was a long-time Homeless Pets member, but eventually he found his forever family! Not only is he feeling the love now, but he gives just as much back to his family! He even has a man cave to hang out in now! Just a reminder that there is a perfect match out there for everyone and how important it is to consider adopting a rescue!
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.

Since she was people-focused and calm, she’d just sit there and look into your face and many potential adopters were intimidated (though Lily was usually thinking, “Do you have a cookie?”) Lily turned out to be…
Weeks ago during a cold snap these little dogs were found in a parking lot inside a tiny cat carrier. We were unsure they’d survive the exposure, the trauma of being abandoned and the change of environment at our shelter. It took lots of patience and TLC to get the 8 year old brother and…
We’re not bragging when we say we work hard to rescue and re-home every animal in our program. It takes lots of brawn, brain, time and talent.
