All our dogs are spayed/neutered and fully vetted. Senior dogs receive extra bloodwork and we try to do dental cleanings on any dogs that need them. Most of the dogs in our care are crate-trained and cat tested. We test with kids when we can. Our process can seem involved and long - we appreciate your patience. Adopting a dog is not like buying a candy bar in the checkout lane; it should never be a last-minute decision or one that is not fully thought out.
Augustus “Gus” is a 4-year-old beagle mix who came to us from an overcrowded metro Atlanta shelter. Gus is the happiest beagle we’ve ever met! He’s still got some puppy energy and would his forever family to take him on walks and hikes. Gus gets along well with dogs, but is too interested in cats to live with them. Gus is up-to-date on vaccines, neutered, heartworm negative and microchipped.
Like what you see? Fill out our online application! We work on a first received, first approved, first adopted basis. We definitely encourage people who are interested in adopting, even if they haven't found the right dog yet, to fill out an application. Our process can take as long as two weeks (we work day jobs!) so having an already approved application speeds things up considerably when you see a dog that catches your eye.
