Hi, my name is CJ and I am 4 years old. I do not like to think of my life before being brought into the rescue as it was a nightmare. I had lived my life outside on a chain, battling the elements of the outdoors day in a day without much attention and very little food. Even with being starved, I gave birth to seven puppies, outside still chained to a tree. All my children have been adopted to wonderful homes and I now I would love a forever home of my very own. I live in a foster home now and as you can see from the photos, I have put on a healthy weight and I am one happy girl. I would really love to be the only furbaby in your home...I have not been around other four legged furbabies. I am very sweet. I love people and love to give kisses. I am crate trained and potty trained. I have lots of energy to play and I'm learning that it's best to sit and wait for attention. I get lots of love that way.

To apply to adopt this pet please fill out a Preliminary Adoption Application at This application does not commit you to an adoption. It is used to screen those interested to make sure the home is a good match for the pet. We try to limit our adoptions to the metro Atlanta area. We are not opposed to out of state adoptions but require adopters to travel to Georgia to meet the pet if pre-approved. We require a home visit scheduled by us with a reputable rescue in the area you live and may request a video of your home.

We verify vet history on current/previous pets to ensure pets have been spayed/neutered and vaccinated annually. Our adoption fee is $250 for all of our dogs. They have been given age-appropriate vaccinations, are spayed/neutered, dewormed, had Capstar and/or Frontline applied, heartworm tested and treated if necessary, and micro-chipped.

About Street Paws, Inc.

About Our Rescue Group...

Street Paws, Inc. is a group of individuals working to improve the lives of animals living on the streets in Georgia. We are 501(c)(3) tax exempt, incorporated with the State of Georgia and approved by the Georgia Department of Agriculture.

We work to reduce animal population through spay/neuter. Promote responsible pet ownership including vaccinations and humane education and seek suitable homes for unwanted and neglected animals.

The purpose of Street Paws, Inc. is to work with local county animal control shelters, county government and other animal groups for the prevention of cruelty to animals, the relief of suffering among animals, including the reduction of animal overpopulation through spay/neuters and publicizing the benefit thereof; promote responsible pet ownership including vaccinations, improve the lives of animals living on the streets, provide humane education to the citizenry and foster a healthy relationship between people and animals.

Street Paws, Inc. shall assist to house homeless, neglected and abused animals, provide veterinary care, seek suitable homes for animals without owners; support local shelters to maximize reclaims, adoptions and foster opportunities, to reduce euthanasia, transfer animals to other licensed animal rescue groups; and provide euthanasia when necessary. These animals are surrendered or given to Street Paws, Inc. by their owners, animal shelters, Humane Societies, and other persons.

Street Paws, Inc. is out on the streets daily taking a progressive, proactive approach to establishing a permanent resolution to the stray companion animal problem through dedicated rescue efforts, sheltering, community outreach programs, education, collaborations, and the encouragement of responsible pet guardianship.

Our current activities include:

Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) for semi-feral and feral cats. We work to get all the animals sterilized so that the overpopulation and spread of diseases is averted. Food and water stations are set up to maintain the colonies. We do not release animals that are sick or not healthy. All cats are given rabies shots prior to release. After the recommended post-op period is completed then the feral is returned to their colony. A volunteer Colony Caretaker is assigned the task of providing fresh food and water daily to ensure the quality of life for the returned ferals.

Food and water program for stray, semi-feral and feral dogs. The food and water program is a network of volunteers working to sustain homeless animals that still await rescue. We supply feeders with food, when available. Volunteers drive to stations, replenish food and water and collect field data to assist with caring for the animals until a permanent solution can be found. The feeding program is critical to the animals’ survival, as well as their health and well being while they wait to be humanely trapped, spayed and neutered and rehabilitated.

Education- Street Paws, Inc. has developed specific information about the practice of Trap-Neuter-Return of feral felines, spay/neuter, heartworms, vaccinations and a new dog fact sheet and disseminate this information via our website, flyers, and education for children in schools. We have partnered with the Southern Crescent Habitat for Humanity to provide animal welfare education to new homeowners on a quarterly basis.
