Roo is a pure bred, red american pit bull terrier whose story started off sad but has a happy ending. Roo was brought in by his former "owner" to a vet's office to be put to sleep as his "owner" allowed him to run loose and he was run over by a car. One of his back legs was mangled so badly, it needed to be amputated but his "owner" did not wish to pay for that. One of our volunteers happened to be around the vet's office at that time and persuaded the man to surrender him to her instead which thankfully he did. Roo succeesfully underwent surgery to remove the back leg and has made a full recovery. We do not have listed as special needs because he moves around very normally with three legs. He is happy go lucky and just a sweet heart of a dog. He has a wonderful temperament and just loves to snuggle and receive attention. He is good with some dogs depending temperment (untested with cats) and likes kids. He is a good boy and deserves a wonderful home. He is neutered, current on shots, on heartworm prevention and crate trained. To download an adoption application, you may visit www.myhstc.org or email kimberlyterrell23@gmail.com.

About Humane Society of Terrell County

About Our Rescue Group...

The Humane Society of Terrell County (HSTC) is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization with a registered mailing address in Dawson, GA. We DO NOT have a shelter. We are an all volunteer based rescue operating as a network of foster homes that care for pets in our homes until they can be adopted into loving homes.

HSTC is always in need of donations, volunteers and foster homes. You can find out more about our rescue, our pets and ways you can help by visiting our website at www.myhstc.org. Our telephone number is voice-mail only and is checked several times per week. Email is the best way to contact us. You can always message us through our website as well.

Come Meet Our Pets...

HSTC partners with the local PetSmart store in Albany Georgia in adopting our cats into permanent homes. We rotate our cats every two weeks to keep them from getting too bored or stressed while in the adoption center. Our foster homes are happy to work with anyone that would like information on any of our cats that are not currently in rotation and housed at the PetSmart adoption center. Please do not hesitate to email us for information on how to meet your new best friend!

HSTC holds small adoption events at PetSmart in Albany, GA on the first and third weekends of each month where you can meet some of our dogs available for adoption. PetSmart Charities holds national adoption events during the months of February, May, September and November and HSTC participates in each of these national events. HSTC does not hold our normal first and third weekend events during the months of the national adoption events. We are happy to schedule a meet and greet with potential adopters who would like to meet particular dogs once an application is approved.

Our Adoption Process...

The adoption fee for dogs is $85 and cats $75 (we will discount if more than one pet is adopted at the same time or the adoptee is taking on some type of medical care). We do allow out-of-state adoptions, however, transportation is the responsibility of the adopter.

We require a completed adoption application with a vet reference provided. We screen all applications prior to a meet and greet and we will call your vet to verify your information. Adoption applications are approved on a case-by-case basis, taking into consideration matching the needs of the pet to an owner. Some long distance adoptions may also require a home visit from a local animal rescuer in the adopter’s area.

HSTC is an all volunteer organization - we have no paid staff and we DO NOT have a shelter. The majority of our pets are in individual foster homes with fosters who work full time jobs - some of our dogs are in boarding at one of our vet's offices. We make every effort to respond to questions and make contact on applications within 24-48 hours of receiving them. Please be patient with us.
