Pee Wee was rescued from a high kill shelter. We suspect that he was abused by a man, because he would get very scared and bark when a man would walk near him. This made him a very difficult dog to place. We brought him to a dog trainer to help him deal with his trust issues. Shortly after he graduated from his obedience class, after being with us for 1 year, the perfect family met him at Petsmart in Marietta. A couple of weeks later they made it official and he was a permanent member of their 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.
Precious, timid Honey scored at her very first adoption event! Hurrah for Honey who got a wonderful new family and a furry friend named Oreo to play with too! Honey and Oreo – sounds like a sweet combo! Thank you for adopting!
This all-female (except dad, of course) family wanted a male pup to balance the scales a bit. I’m sure the feminine attention will be more than welcome to the sweet puppy they picked and named Herschel. Congratulations Herschel!
From pitiful to pampered in a matter of months. Rosa was rescued from a cruelty case in November. She was skin and bones. Despite everything, she showed she still had trust in humans and would try to crawl in your lap and curl up like a dog a quarter of her size! Craig saw Rosa…
This was our Christmas gift — Meadow, in our program since April 2014, adopted! No words needed except THANK YOU FOR ADOPTING! Her long wait is over!
