29805-Shadow

Available! - Rescue Only!, Urgent! Owner Surrender!


  • Age 2 years
  • Breed Chow Chow/ Retriever Mix
  • Gender Spayed! Female
  • Impound Date 02/04/2010
  • Ledger # 29805
Shadow was another owner surrender. Poor little girl does not know why she is here. Her owners say that she is housebroken and good with other animals including cats! Shadow’s owners also say that she does well with children of all ages. Because Shadow is soo scared, she needs to be placed with a rescue that can really bring this girl out of her shell and get to know her beautiful personality. While taking her picture, Shadow showed interest in being friendly and loving but every loud noise she hears makes her flinch. Please come down and meet this sweet girl and give her a second chance.


29754 Toby

Available!
Please refer to the dogs by their ledger number (not their name) when contacting the shelter.



  • Age 5 years
  • Breed Golden Retriever/Chow
  • Gender Male
  • Impound Date 01/25/2010
  • Ledger # 29754
Toby was placed in the same pen as Sparky, but they are totally different in personality. Toby could also benefit from some leash training, but is a much calmer dog. He seems to crave human contact, and was delighted when we went into a play area and he had a chance to interact with me. He came over several times and put his head on my lap. He has definitely had previous owners, and would be so happy to have an owner again. He’s a laid back dog, and I think he’d get along well with anyone. There was a dog in an adjoining pen, and he barely paid attention to it. Older dogs so often get overlooked in favor of young puppies, but Toby is worth taking a look at. He’ll give you a lot of love.
Toby is in rabies quarantine until 2-8-10 and is not available until that time.

Okay - I have a rescue that is coming to pick up Shadow. They have room for her and will arrange for transport and vetting. The web site to the rescue group is here: http://lcarf.org/

If anyone can spare any money to donate to their program that would be awesome! I am working with a friend of mine there and a woman named Deb to get her picked up.

If they have room they will take Toby too.

The pound doesn't adopt out of state, so one of the rescue people's father is going to go in and try to adopt them and then transport them to the rescue in NY. Please keep your fingers crossed for these two!!!

I think that a GA rescue could also pull for your rescue - there are some listed on www.athenspets.net that work with the pound regularly - including Adopt a Golden Atlanta. They are listed on the "How can you help?" tab.

There is also a volunteer run forum at www.athenspets.forumotion.net Some times one of the volunteers can help with pulling or finding someone who can pull. You do have to join the forum to post.

I have a contact near Athens that might be able to help also - I believe she is a rescue and has pulled dogs for other, out of state rescues. Let me know if you would like me to put you in touch with her.

Here is an email update I just got:

Just to update - we've been trying to get in touch with the woman who coordinates rescue to adopt out of state - if not we have a few people in state who might be willing to get them out then we can organize transport - we already have interested fosters/furever homes!!

This is so exciting!!

Thanks so much for continuing to try for Toby. Please let us know as soon as you hear. Does the shelter know you are working to find Toby rescue?

According to the Athens Pets forum, Toby was just released from quarantine today. No word on whether he has any apps. Hope your group is able to get him - he's beautiful!

Copper's Mom - thanks for correcting the link to Angels Among Us. I copied it from a post on Athens Pets and it worked for me there. I didn't check it here.

Apparently Toby's family has known he was at the pound for a while, but Toby was in quarrantine and they weren't allowed to reclaim him until his time there was up. And, his name is actually Clyde!
