Shelter Emergency!!!!

Many many dogs and cats poured in on Friday and Saturday at the Chattooga County AC Shelter. The Director called me Saturday morning to say they will be putting at least 20 dogs down, and even more cats at 8:00 Monday morning. They will not wait, and they cannot hold. They are completely out of space. Cats are being kept in carriers on the floor! There is no space to hold any, and the vet won't board any.

There are many dogs that aren't pictured below. At least 9 dogs have come in since the pictures were taken. There is another Lab mix female that we skipped over by accident too. And there are several being held for court cases. And a lady turned in 25 of her mother's cats, since mom had to go to the hospital for heart surgery.

This shelter can only have 38 dogs at one time, and 24 cats. Please help if you can, and please pass this along to anyone who may be able to help.

Please Note: The shelter has new hours, and is open on Monday until 6:00 pm and is closed on Wednesdays!

Shelter hours: 8:00 - 6:00 Mon., 8:00 - 4:00 Tues., Thurs., Fri.

8:00 - noon on Sat., Closed on Wed., After hours, by appointment.

It is ALWAYS a good idea to call this shelter before driving there. Sometimes they don't work regular hours. They start closing about 15 minutes before closing time so come before that if you want to see any dogs.


Maimie's Pups 08-0256 Maimie got rescued but her pups are still here. They were very unused to human contact when they first came in but now they will let you pet them and pick them up and they will take treats from your hand. They are good looking dogs and deserve a chance. They have been wormed and had their 2nd puppy shots.

Puppies 08-0311 Two little lab girls came in with a Border Collie mix who has been rescued now. These 2 are still waiting. They were 2 of our 'Painters' who created paintings that were auctioned at our Paws for Art Charity event to raise money for low cost spays and neuters. (Painting was followed by a bath in a wading pool. That is why the water is a funky color.)

Radar 08-0298 Radar seems to be a Doberman / Shepherd mix or a Rottie shepherd mix? who knows. He is a little skittish. Licks you one minute and growls a little the next.

Mitzy and Bitsy 08-0313 There are 2 of these Brindle Plott hound mix puppies. They survived being used for target practice a the local dump - now they have to survive the shelter. Both are very sweet and get along great with other dogs and kids. They were 2 of our 'Painters' who created paintings that were auctioned at our Paws for Art Charity event to raise money for low cost spays and neuters.

Candie 08-0315 seems to be a Shar Pei mix. She has the 'hippo' head. The poor thing looks like she has been bred ever time she has come into heat her whole life. She has some kind of big lump on her left side - maybe a mammary gland tumor. She is a very sweet girl. We thought at first that she was growling at us but we realized that she was just trying to talk to us and she does it all the time. Very pretty smoky color.

Trooper and Scout 08-0238 are both very nice Lab mix boys. They seem to be related - maybe father and son.

Ozzie 08-0349 looks like she could be a Great Pyrenees mix or a Golden mix puppy. She has some mange or other skin condition so it is a little hard to tell her breed. She is just a puppy though and has all baby teeth still. Very sweet and doesn't understand why no one will let her snuggle.
