Orion - Needs to be in a home!'s Story...
In early October little 11 lb. Orion was hit by a car and dragged. Animal Control found him and called his owner (via info on his microchip) who said she couldn't afford any medical bills and told them to put him down. They refused since he was otherwise healthy and only around a year old. (Yeah!)

We took him in, got him the medical attention he needed and cleaned him up. He's not using his back right leg yet and we're waiting to see if he will or if it will need to be amputated. When Orion first came in he was sad and in pain but still friendly and sweet. Now he's feeling better and his wounds are healing he's also a PEPPY little guy! He runs and hops around on his three good legs. (He no longer has to wear the cone, that picture is from when he first arrived.)

He really needs to be in a home - either a foster home while he waits adoption or, preferably, in a permanent adoption home. Currently he's in a cage and not able to exercise much or attempt to use his bad leg. We need him in a home where he can move around more freely. If you can adopt or foster Orion, please complete an adoption application (just note in the pet name section that you are only interested in fostering). You will not be responsible for any medical treatment costs for him while fostering (as long as you bring him to us for check-ups). Email or call 770-971-0100 for more info.

Adoption fees include spaying/neutering, micro-chipping, vaccinations up to date at the time of adoption, one free check-up at Town & Country main vet clinic within 14 days of adoption and a free session with Tenasity dog trainers!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Orion - Needs to be in a home!, a Marietta Rat Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Rat Terrier for sale in Marietta, or seeking a Rat Terrier dog from a breeder in Marietta.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Marietta already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Marietta breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Rat Terrier breeders who help with Rat Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Marietta paves the way for another one to be saved.
