Facts about Blitzen

  • Breed: Labrador Retriever Mix
  • Color: Black - With White

Look at Bitzen's face! He's all enthusiasm while he waits for his new family.  Blitzen was surrendered by his owner because he jumps, but he's only about 18 months old and sometimes it's really hard to behave when you're just a kid.  He is heartworm positive but is on the slow-kill treatment while at the shelter.  

I am currently participating in a training program at Lee Arrendale State Prison to help make me the perfect family member! I'm available for adoption at any time! Saving me lets another shelter dog come into the program too! Adopting me saves TWO lives!

 Adoption Inquiries should be made to Gabby, instructor of the program by emailing: foreverfriendsrescuedogs@gmail.com

 The mission or Forever Friends is to save dogs from being euthanized at the Habersham County Animal Care and Control Shelter while providing inmates with the training to teach basic dog obedience and to learn animal care and grooming skills.
Through this program, both inmates and dogs are rehabilitated, providing valuable support to our local community. The dogs are trained in basic obedience skills, are crate trained and house broken so that they are more easily adopted. The women in the program are learning valuable social and vocational skills that will help them become more productive members of their communities upon release, this reducing recidivism.



The adoption fee for all animals, adopted from the Habersham County Animal Shelter, is $110.  The price of the adoption includes:

Dogs: spay or neuter, microchip and registration, rabies vaccination, DHLPP vaccination, Bordatella vaccination, SNAP Heartworm Test, deworming and one month of complimentary, catastrophic, insurance.

Cats: spay or neuter, microchip and registration, rabies vaccination, FVRCP vaccination, FeLV/FIV Combo Test, deworming and one month of complimentary, catastrophic, insurance.

We invite you to come see all our adoptable pets here at the shelter! HCACC will often have more animals in house than posted online. If you don't see what you're looking for here, please contact us or come visit!

We are proud of our new 'Play Area' for the Dogs! We encourage adopters to bring their current dogs if looking to add a new fur-member to their family so we can help you pick the right new pet for everyone in the household! Dogs can now interact with potential family members off leash in our 'Adoption Pavilion'!
