This sweet boy was found as a small puppy abandoned on the highway with his 2 other litter mates. His siblings were adopted, but for some reason Tanner has been overlooked at the shelter and has now grown into a strapping handsome young boy. He is about one year old and is very sweet and friendly. Tanner is good with other dogs, and although a little shy at first, is very gentle. He walks well on a leash and goes potty outside, too. Please give this boy a forever home so he can be out of a kennel for the rest of his life. 609-948-4299.

GARD is a non-profit, 501(c)3 / 509(a)2 state licensed no-kill animal shelter dedicated to saving and protecting the lives of homeless and neglected dogs and cats in our area. We also promote spaying and neutering of all companion animals and our goal is the eventually establish a low cost spay/neuter clinic on site at our shelter. GARD was founded by Joy Bohannon, Georgia Animal Rescue and Defence, Inc. is a registered 501(c)3 non-profit animal charity and a licensed 509(a)2 no-kill animal shelter that is funded entirely by private contributions, and receives no government funding. GARD was founded by, and is privately owned by, a family of animal lovers who have dedicated their lives to saving animals and educating others regarding the pet over-population problem. Joy Bohannon, her husband Phil Rutherford, and her mother JoAnne Bohannon, sold their homes in Vermont and moved to Georgia in 2005 for the sole purpose of helping to one day end the slaughter of innocent and healthy dogs and cats in shelters. In Vermont, and throughout the Northeastern U.S., the pet over-population problem is not quite as severe as it is in the South; mainly due to harsher winter weather conditions, stricter spay/neuter regulations, and access to more low cost spay/neuter clinics. They know the over-population problem is everywhere they just chose the area of the U.S. where it is the worst to place their efforts and passion into making things better. With Phil working a full time job to pay the bills, they began volunteering with a few local Animal Control shelters for a year. It soon became apparent that the best way to make a big difference and have the control that they needed was to purchase their own property and establish a no-kill animal shelter. The GARD Animal Shelter was born in 2006.
GARD holds adoptions at the shelter every day from 2:00 to 6:00PM EST.
