Meg's Story...
Why Choose me?

Excuse the poor, red-eyed photo of Meg, but she hasn’t been here long and she is too frightened to come out of her kennel for a picture right now. Meg and her puppies are homeless strays who were too shy to approach anyone so they were caught using a humane trap. Destiny was the first of her family to be trapped, then two days later Animal Control was able to get the rest of the family. Although Meg is petrified, she let the staff weigh her and squirt some worming medicine down her throat without showing any aggression, so with a little time and patience on the part of volunteers, we hope to have some happier news and pictures of Meg soon.

Update 2/25: Meg is still scared at Animal Control, and I had to have help taking her out of her kennel. I carried her most of the way, but there were times when she would walk a short distance on a leash. After I took some pictures, I spent time sitting with Meg on a bench. I put her in my lap and just held her. Eventually, as I was petting her and talking softly to her, I felt her relax. This was progress for Meg! She’s not where she needs to be yet, but she was responding to kindness and attention. Meg is a sweet and beautiful girl. She just needs time to trust. Unfortunately, time is not something there is a lot of at Animal Control–especially when it is so full.

Act quickly to adopt Meg. Pets at this Shelter may be held for only a short time.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Meg, a Athens Pit Bull Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Pit Bull Terrier for sale in Athens, or seeking a Pit Bull Terrier dog from a breeder in Athens.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Athens 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 Athens 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 Pit Bull Terrier breeders who help with Pit Bull Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Athens paves the way for another one to be saved.
