Important Note

Angus is best friends with Queenee. Please adopt both of them so they can stay together!
Angus is a 13-year-old senior who lost his home when the husband passed away suddenly, and the wife had to move without her beloved pets. He is an inside-only companion dog who is:

- In excellent health
- Fixed & current on vaccinations until Sept., 2017
- Fully house trained
- Walks great on a leash
- Rides good in a car
- Friendly with other dogs
- Loves people

Angus is low energy and loves his naps. He would do best in a quiet home with no children under 10 years of age. Sure, senior pets still love to have fun, but instead of going for an hour-long run or endlessly batting at a toy, they are happy to revel in the simple pleasure of taking it easy. Angus loves slow strolls to go potty, getting to sniff around, and time to bond with his handler. If you have a special loving heart for an old boy who is looking for a place to call home again, please contact us.

NOTE: Angus is listed as bonded with another senior dog named Queenee, his mate. They also have a 10-year-old son named Teddy who is posted separately, because we weren't able to bond three dogs together. Angus has been with Queenee and Teddy since he was a young dog. Our rescue would prefer that they are adopted as a family, but if we were able to find each one a separate loving home, we know it would be the next best alternative for them. Adoption fee is $150 if adopted together, or $75 each. (jb)

About Giles County Humane Association

About Our Rescue Group...

We believe that family pets are family members who fill our lives with joy and meaning. We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit rescue group that strives to make a difference in the lives of animals within our rural community in south central Tennessee. Through education, awareness and our S/N Program for Giles County residents, we know that the result will be a huge reduction in the amount of local animals being euthanized. Rescues exist because of the overpopulation of cats and dogs. About 2.4 million healthy, adoptable cats and dogs—about one every 13 seconds—are put down in U.S. shelters each year. Often these animals are the offspring of cherished family pets. Spay/Neuter is a proven way to reduce pet overpopulation, ensuring that every pet has a family to love them.

The Giles County Humane Association lends a voice to those animals who cannot speak for themselves.


Come Meet Our Pets...

All our adoptable pets are in foster homes where we socialize them with people and other animals. Along with local adoption events we are an agency partner with the PetSmart store in Spring Hill, TN, in The Crossings shopping center. Our cats can be seen during store hours in the Cat Adoption Room, and our dogs from 11am to 3pm on Saturdays. If you are interested in meeting one of our furbabies, simply contact us, and we will work with you to schedule a meeting. Since we are an all-volunteer rescue, please be patient, as it may take up to 72 hours for a response. Thank you!

Our Adoption Process...

Who says you can't buy love? Our adoption rates say different. Please contact us for the specific adoption fee, which covers the pet's spay or neuter, vaccinations, testing, and worming. We require interested parties to complete our adoption application with veterinarian and personal references. If approved we will work with you to schedule a meeting with the pet, and if you decide to adopt, our contract is the last step. We do not adopt to homes with intact pets or to people under 21 years of age.
