Winnie is one of a family of dogs that was rescued by one of our foster homes from an elderly woman whose kids were using her home to sell drugs. Despite their auspicious beginnings, Winnie and her family are very sweet, good dogs-it is a true testament that most canines can live in the moment and over come most anything with a little TLC. She looks like a small yellow lab mixed with a little shepherd/weighs around 30-35 pounds. Winnie loves all people and is great with kids but she can be a bit bossy with other dogs (she either needs to be an only dog or go to a home with another submissive dog that will allow her to be in charge). Winnie is active and likes to play-she is outgoing and just all around fun loving. Winnie absolutely adores to play fetch-she will retrieve as many times as you want to throw a tennis ball to her-she is a great dog and will be a great pet in the right home. She is spayed, current on shots and on heartworm prevention. Please help us finish her happy ending by giving her the forever home she deserves. You may obtain an adoption application at our website at or you may email us for more information. She is an older dog now but would still make a good pet; she is 8-9 years young!

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 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.
