Meow! My name is Ugly Betty
Ugly Betty's Info...
I am already spayed and up to date with shots.
Meet Ugly Betty, affectionately named that because of her, um, "different" appearance. She's a tortie, but is mostly black with orange randomly sprinkled in. Unfortunately, it isn't really her appearance that keeps her from getting adopted. Though she's been in foster care and had constant contact with people since she was three weeks old, she is still very skittish around people, and will only allow you to pet her once you are "approved", and then only fleetingly. It was a year before she started sleeping on the bed with her foster parents, and she does get more affectionate when the house is dark and quiet. Now she jumps on the bed and head-butts her foster mom nearly every night. She is also known as "Wrap-Around" Betty, because when she rubs against you, she throws her whole body into it and you often have a tail in your face.
We know Betty isn't the most adoptable cat, but she really deserves a chance to have a home of her own, where there aren't so many other foster cats and so much change going on around her. She does have a reduced adoption fee. Please ask about Betty - email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.

The Circle Begins
Circle of Friends Animal Society was founded in January of 2007 by eight friends with eighty years of experience in animal welfare between them. They had worked in many organizations over the years and wanted to use their knowledge and skills, add all the best practices and most innovative ideas they had discovered, and follow a different path than a typical humane society. They set out to create an organization that would address the multiple concerns of animal welfare with positive, humane solutions.
Circle of Friends believes that animals deserve kindness and that being kind to animals brings forth our best human qualities and creates a more compassionate society. We believe that every life is precious and do not put a price tag on that life. If an animal needs an investment of time, money, and effort to have a chance at a happy life, we will not turn that animal away. We believe that educating pet owners and providing services to help them is key to creating a community in which animals are valued and treated with compassion. We do not limit ourselves to helping dogs and cats and will assist any animal, of any species, to the best of our capabilities.
We ALWAYS have cats for adoptions in the Macon Petsmart Adoption Center. Someone is there to speak to from 6-7 p.m. on weekdays and 11-4 p.m. on weekends.
Every Saturday we are at the Petsmart in Loganville on 78 from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. with dogs for adoptions.
After we receive your application we will review it and discuss it with you. We talk with you about the animal’s energy level, temperament, individual training requirements. We also talk about your living situation, expectations, and what you are looking for in a pet. We reserve the right to require a home visit (for all “bully” breeds this is a requirement, but we may ask for one with other animals as well) before going ahead with any adoption.
Adoption fees begin at $150 for dogs and $80 for cats. They are all spayed or neutered, UTD on shots, tested/treated for heartworm or FeLV/FIV, de-wormed and on flea prevention.
Once the paperwork has been completed and the animal is considered “ready to go,” you may take him or her home with you! We love to hear about former COFAS dogs and cats who have found their forever homes - so do keep in touch!
Please note: Our animals are spayed or neutered once they are considered of age for the procedure. In very, very rare cases we will give the adopter a certificate for the procedure to be done at a later date by our approved veterinarian.
Also, from time to time we will have dogs or cats at adoption events or listed online that are not considered ready for adoption. They may need medical procedures or additional behavioral training before they are free to go. We feel that in these cases it is beneficial for the animals- they are able to get exposure to potential adopters as well as the socialization experiences that come with meeting lots of people and animals. If you meet a dog at our adoption events but he is not ready to leave our care quite yet, you are welcome to put an application in on him. However, our applications are not considered first-come first-serve; we want the animal to go to the most appropriately matched home as possible. This is not only for the dog or cat’s sake, but to make sure his or her new human family is happy, too!
