Dogs are surrendered by their owners for many reasons, most often not because the dog did anything wrong. Kris was surrendered after his owner started having to travel for work and felt guilty leaving Kris in boarding so much.
Kris came into our program Monday night and was adopted in 12 hours without even getting listed online. Yowza! Wish they all were in such demand. Congrats to him and his new family!
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.
Big sweetheart Otis found his forever home! He went into a trial adoption 2 weeks ago to see how he did around the family’s cats and he’s apparently passed the test! Congratulations to the new family! Thank you for adopting.
Junior came our way when his owner dumped him and his “brother” Buford from their car then sped off. The dogs held no grudges so we tried not to too. Junior believes when one door closes (even if you’ve just been tossed out it) another one opens. He’s right since this happy lady, Lora, opened…
Benny is one of our long term cats that we’ve had for over a year. He went home with a nice woman who’d been contemplating a new pet for a while. She visited us today and fell in love with Benny. Happy purrs sweet boy!
Angie who’s deaf and had been abandoned in a fenced industrial property along with her brother Blake has been given a new “leash” on life! Thank you so much for giving this pretty girl a chance! Congrats to the new family!
Sophie and Turnip we part of a litter of orphaned kittens. Our amazing bottle feeding volunteer helped nurse them to health and now they have found a home! Happy purrs sweet kittens!
