Homer came to SoCo as a happy little guy.  He's a bright boy that caught onto routine pretty quick.  He loves people but can be assertive with other dogs. Homer can be selective about the friends he chooses and a meeting prior to adoption is required.  Homer would do well as an only dog in a household without small children.  

Homer did test positive for heart worms on 5/20/16.  While the test can't determine the amount of heart worms that a dog has, a vet can and typically determines the "level" of infection based on a number of factors, including the amount of time it takes for the test results to appear.  In Homer's case the results took the full allotted 10 minutes to appear and the "line" was very faint, leading our vet to interpret his level of infection as "very slight".  Our vet recommended that Homer be kept on a monthly heart worm preventative and then retested in six months.  This method of treating heart worms is referred to as the "Slow Kill" method.  For more information on the different methods of treating heart worms we recommend following this link:  You can also contact our vet to discuss Homer's level of heart worms and treatment by calling the Sandersville Animal Clinic at (478) 552-0016.

Homer does seem to be in relatively good health otherwise.  He is current on all his vaccinations and he is neutered.  Once in his new environment Homer will need a refresher course in house breaking.  If interested in this wonderful little guy please submit an application to

About Southern Comfort Animal Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Our rescue is licensed through the State Dept. of Agriculture, with regular inspections being made by them. We are in no way a "puppy mill", rather we take in the stray, abandoned and sick/injured pets and get them back to adoptable status.
We are a non-profit 501(c)3 organization and do accept and survive on donations from adopters and/or the general public.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We do not have a facility that has set hours of operations. This is not a problem for our adopters because it allows us to meet them with prospective pets in many locations - most are much closer to where they live. We travel to many places in Georgia so if you see someone you like, let us know and we'll see if we can meet you somewhere relatively close by.

Our Adoption Process...

We have a simple process to follow in adopting an animal from us: fill out an application, wait a few days and pay our fee when everything is approved!
We have a bit more that we do. After reviewing the application we have to check references and with their vet, then we can send the pet to his new home.
