Cher has found her way home! Cher became homeless months ago when her owner passed away. She was so loyal she had to be carried away from her departed owner’s side. Her reward for all that was to be left at animal control.
We took her in and now the Sharp family has come to her final rescue. Six-year-old Cher won’t have to worry about being left behind again! The Sharps wanted to rescue an older dog and Cher’s sad face caught their eye.
She’s now called Shakti and proudly sports a fancy new leash and collar which we admired when she was brought in for a spa day by the Sharps! THANK YOU for giving Shakti something to live for again!
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.
A family came to Petsmart Saturday hoping to fill the hole left in their lives by their recently departed 13 year old Golden Retriever. Must have been a big hole because they decided to adopt two puppies to fill it! We love when siblings can stay together. This sleepy duo, Pop and Tart, must have…
Happy faces all around! This blue-eyed beauty generated a LOT of interest but only needed one home and has found it! Thanks to all who wanted to adopt Vanity. Her new name is Bertie and we think she looks right at home already! Thanks for adopting!
Congratulation to Cornsilk who generated a lot of interest because of his extreme cuteness but was a bit tricky to place because of his quirks. He was rescued from a hoarder and did NOT have a happy life there. As a result he fears women, children and things that go bump in the night. Enter…
Bear, the black German Spitz, has found his forever home. Last weekend he went into a 2-week trial adoption (which we offer on our adult dogs) and his new parents called after one week and said the trial is over, he’s here to stay! Congrats to all! Thanks for adopting!
In February 2015 we rescued Bissou and other dogs from a yard where they were chained to the ground. None were “fixed” so of course Bissou had just given birth to 8 potluck puppies when we came on the scene (each looked like one of the males in the yard – different breeds!) Bissou was…
Chevy’s past is a mystery. He came into the Homeless Pets Foundation at 32lbs back in March…as a full grown boxer. To say the least, he was severely emaciated and needed nutrition! With some love from Homeless Pets and a great new family, he’s now a strong, healthy 75lbs of pure love 🙂 Chevy’s new…
