Rhubarb's Story...
Rhubarb is ready to be harvested into forever! This tiny scruff came to us from our partner rescue in South Georgia. He is young and still needs help learning people are safe and a good thing. He is a little demure, but warms up quickly with affection and treats. This gentle fellow is waiting to be planted into your family! Unfortunately, when Rhubarb arrived to us, he had some old injuries that were causing discomfort and pain in his front, left leg. He has 2 old fractures that have healed on their own. The bigger problem is his elbow is possibly fused. We will have him seen by our good friends at Paces Ferry Vet Clinic for further diagnostics. If you can help defray the costs of this, please click the Sponsor Me tab to help make a tax-deductible donation. Update: 4/15/15: Unfortunately, Rhubarb will have to have his front, left leg amputated on 4/21. We expect a speedy and full recovery from that! Update, 4/21/15: Rhubarb had his leg amputated today and is recovering and resting well after his surgery. Update, 4/22/15: Rhubarb is back at the shelter and doing well!! He wants a forever home! If you would like to adopt, please visit Atlanta Pet Rescue's 'How to Adopt' page for adoption information, application form and adoption hours. Love the dog, but now is not the time to adopt?

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Rhubarb, a Atlanta Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) for sale in Atlanta, or seeking a Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) dog from a breeder in Atlanta.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Atlanta already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Atlanta breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) breeders who help with Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Atlanta paves the way for another one to be saved.
