Ozzy’s amber eyes peered out his cell door as he intently watched the activity in the county shelter. County workers were going about their daily chores of feeding and cleaning. “The feeding part is good”, Ozzy thought to himself, “but having a hose spray cold water into the cell while standing here is not ideal.” Yet, this young chap didn’t dwell on it. Maybe he was too young to understand or maybe his persevering attitude allowed Ozzy to remain upbeat. Then suddenly Ozzy spotted his favorite worker. With tail wagging and barks of excitement, Ozzy greeted his friend. “I’ve got some people I want you to meet, Red,” his friend said. Red is the nickname his friend had given him and Ozzy thought that was really cool. Once out of the cell, his friend led Ozzy outside where the intake team of Our Pal’s Place was standing. Ozzy danced in excitement being outside in the fresh air and having people interested in him. His young exuberance brought smiles to everyone’s face. Once in the Pet Adoption Facility of Our Pal’s Place, Ozzy learned his new routine as he met many new human friends. In the beginning, he frequently thought of his pal who called him “Red”, but eventually the memories gave way to new experiences such as learning good manners with his K9 Coach and playing in the yard with new doggie friends. Now Ozzy rests comfortably on his bed and dreams of a person who is active like he is, enjoys playing and hanging out together, and most importantly will be loyal to him as he will be to them.

About Our Pals Place

About Our Rescue Group...

Our Pal’s Place is an animal advocate organization with a pet adoption facility and education center, located in Marietta, Georgia. Our mission is to provide solutions that improve the future for animals. We also run a summer camp program teaching children the importance of spay & neuter and kindness to animals.

Our purpose is to rescue animals from euthanasia at local animal control shelters. When entering the shelter, we first meet the animals who are on "death row". If we believe we can find the animal a good home, we bring them into our organization. We provide safe housing, food, basic training, necessary rehabilitation and a lot of TLC! The animals receive full veterinarian care and are spay/neutered. Meanwhile, we work to find these homelss animals a "forever home".

Rescue and adoption is an important step to helping homeless animals, but will not resolve the overpopulation problem, eliminate animal cruelty or prevent dog fighting. For this reason, Our Pal's Place is dedicated to providing solutions to current animal welfare issues through our education center and community outreach programs. In a positive, fun environment we teach solutions and provide hands-on learning experiences for youth and adults.

Throughout the adoption application process, Our Pal’s Place will act in accordance with what we feel is in the best interest of our dogs. Our decisions are based on what we know about our dog’s temperament, background and current needs. If multiple applications are received for a dog, we will review all applications equally vs accepting the first application. All decisions are made jointly by the Adoption Management Team.
