Each week, the Douglas County Animal Shelter highlights a cat and a dog as the “Pets of the Week.” All animals at the Shelter are looking for loving and permanent homes, and it is hoped that the “Pets of the Week” highlight will help bring attention to all of the animals currently housed at the Douglas County Animal Shelter.
Kate #9261 is a beautiful black female domestic short-hair cat. This pretty puss is a quiet, well-mannered adult but enjoys a catnip toy to bat about.
Clint #9513 is a big, beautiful and highly intelligent male German Shepherd. He greets Shelter staff with a hearty handshake and is very well-mannered and a sweet dog.
There are currently 121 cats and 77 dogs, a ferret and a goat at the Shelter, and the Shelter is overcrowded. Some of the animals have already been spayed or neutered. All adoptable animals are listed on www.petfinder.com.

Dogs include pit bulls, pit bull mixes, Shepherd mixes, a purebred German Shepherd, Labrador Retriever mixes, Australian Shepherd mixes, Chihuahua mixes, Shih Tzu, Poodle mixes, Shar Pei mixes, Terrier mixes, Pug mixes and more. Many of the dogs know simple commands, are very loving, seem to get along well with other dogs and somewhat house-trained.The Douglas County Animal Shelter is open Tuesday - Sunday afternoons, and is located at 1755 County Services Road (off Cedar Mountain Road) adjacent to the Cedar Mountain Landfill approximately 4 ½ miles northwest of downtown Douglasville.
