A Day Is All They Have Left

Come see them and allow them to show you just how special they each are once they are given a chance to be adopted.

Each of these dogs has been placed on this weeks IN DANGER LIST at Douglas County Animal Control. They are all sweet animals deserving of a forever home. If they are not adopted or rescued by 7 PM Thursday, they risk being put down Friday morning for space. At least half of these dogs were on last week's list and that dramatically increases thier risk of being put down if not adopted or rescued by Thursday afternoon at 7 PM. Please consider coming to the shelter today to have a look at these wonderful dogs and consider adopting one. You may be the only chance they have left at life.

If you are interested in adopting one of the many beautiful and sweet dogs or cats that are available for adoption, please take the time to visit the Douglas County Animal Shelter located at 1755 County Services Road (off Cedar Mountain Road) this week. The summer months are the critical months to adopt and rescue dogs and cats, so please consider giving one of these dogs or cats a loving and forever home.

To see other animals available for adoption at Douglas County Animal Control, view the DCAC PetFinder listings on their website.

Or please visit the shelter pets posted and profiled daily at Rainbow Connections on Facebook.

Pet listings on each of these pages are updated daily; therefore, some animals featured may be adopted prior to your arrival at the shelter. That after all is the goal. If the pet you have seen promoted and are interested in has been adopted, please consider giving another of the many loveable pets an opportunity to be your forever friend. Come see them and allow them to show you just how special they each are once they are given a chance to be adopted.

Adoption fees for dogs and cats at DCAC is $25 and there is a $10 micro chip fee. $35 for the opportunity to make a friend for life and the opportunity to give a fur kid a forever home is a small price to pay. 

All dogs presently receive intake inoculations for kennel cough, parvo and distemper (cats receive distemper as part of a five way vaccination). All pets adopted from the shelter are required to have their rabies shots and be spayed or neutered within thirty days of adoption, unless they are kittens or puppies and they are given extended time. The Douglas County Animal Shelter phone: 770-942-5961. If the line is busy, please keep trying as there is often limited staff to answer calls. However, messages left will be returned as time permits.

Through the efforts of dedicated shelter staff and volunteers adn citizen in the community, we were able to see enough dogs and cats rescued and adopted by Sunday to cancel euthanasia day today at DCAC. The day was postponed on last Friday, but with the concerted efforts of all involved, the day was cancelled today. There will be another scheduled day this coming Friday.
