These three Bostons are determined to beat the rope. Kind of reminded me of watching Tarzan as a kid. Watch this!
Feline 3: This is a litter of 5 owner surrender kittens
This litter of kittens has $100 in sponsorship funds to go to the approved rescue who pulls them.
The animal or animals in this photo MUST have rescue commitment by 4pm on April 30th. Please watch the clock as after 4pm I am unable to do anything further to guarantee their safety. These animals are located in the Cartersville, GA area. ALL rescues or adoptions for these animals are handled ONLY through us at Etowah Valley Humane Society BUT they are not physically located at our facility.
To be considered a rescue in the State of GA you must hold a current license through the Georgia Dept. of Agriculture. Out of state rescues are welcome BUT must hold either of GA out of state license OR work with a currently licensed GA rescue to do the pull for you. Occasionally, we can also work out an adoption to an individual on dogs or cats in this album though for the most part, the reason for this urgent album is due to not enough space being available at EVHS to bring these animals in for adoption with us. Certain animals in the album will be labeled RESCUE ONLY in which case, that means they can ONLY go to a licensed rescue. Otherwise, if you are an individual and see a dog or cat you might be interested in adopting from the urgent album, please feel free to inquire. If you would prefer an animal that is already vetted and that we can tell you more about please visit our website at www.etowahvalleyhumane.org
. Each time a dog or cat is adopted from our facility, we are able to bring one more over from the urgent album.
I didn’t even know this was going on, but the northern states have done a better job at having dogs and cats spayed and neutered than the southern states. But, there’s a demand for puppies and kittens in shelters up north.
A partnership has sprung up with overwhelmed shelters in Georgia with northern humane societies that save hundreds of lives every month. The dogs that are transported are healthy and have been vet checked before being put with all the other dogs. Preparing for transport day is a big job. Thanks to these volunteers – these dogs are on to their new lives as adopted dogs!
Kitty Cookies & Doggie Donuts by Cherie K. Miller
What to do about a poop eater….
I volunteer for a local humane society every weekend doing doggy and kitty adoptions. One little high energy dog named Hunter came out to adoption a lot. But then, I noticed a definite change in his habits. He was a terrier-type, kept in a smallish-cage at the Humane Society. Exercise happened once a day – but always on leash. There just wasn’t enough room and space for anything else to happen for Hunter. And, unfortunately, he’d waited months for an adopter.
So – in the van on the way to adoption one day my teenaged helper said, “EWWW, he’s eating his poop.” Many dogs are famous for going after the “kitty cookies” left in a litter box, but when a dog eats its own poop –it can be a symptom of a bigger problem. It was for Hunter.
