Foster homes are great for so many reasons, one being that they sometimes end up adopting their foster animal! Congratulations to Swiss Roll, who went home with this kind gal and her husband a while back. Swiss Roll needed to be in a home to recover from a urinary tract infection (he’s all better now). He was crying in pain and we hated the idea of him holding in his bladder as he sat in the cage at our shelter. Emily reports that Swiss Roll is a great house guest and gets along well with her cat too! Thank you for fostering and adopting him!
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.

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!
This is the way you get a dog for Christmas – bring the whole family to your local shelter on Christmas Eve and ADOPT! Shoelace went home with this family the day before Christmas for a 2-week trial adoption. We just learned he’s not coming back! Shoelace got the best gift of all, a new…
