Brett & Rhett are a bonded pair of mixed breed dogs, They are probably a mix of hounds and setters. Both are exceedingly shy and scared. Brett & Rhett came to the shelter as part of an abuse case and they have been terrified of the environment since their arrival. Through weeks of staff and volunteer efforts, they are finally emerging and coming out to meet people. These are two very sweet and loving dogs, but they need to be given the opportunity to trust people again and they need to remain together.
Rhett the smaller and younger of the two, is very loving and protective of his older and larger sibling. They are often seen sharing the same dog house where Rhett stands sentry at the front to watch over his buddy.
These two dogs were placed on the IN DANGER list last week and they need to be rescued or adopted ASAP. I have been working with them each week and as they get to know people they are revealing themselves to be two sweet little souls who have been traumatized and they are simply afraid of the shelter and not knowing their environment.
Come see these dogs and give them a chance to show you how special and loving they really are. I will be at the shelter Thursday and Saturday and Sunday afternoons and I will be happy to introduce you to these two sweet little dogs.
If you are interested in adopting Brett & Rhett or one of the many other dogs or cats that are available for adoption at the shelter, please take the time to visit the Douglas County Animal Shelter located at 1755 County Services Road (off Cedar Mountain Road) this week.
Douglas County Animal Control maintains PetFinder listings on their website.
Pet listings on each of these pages are updated daily; therefore, some animals featured may be adopted prior to your visiting the shelter. Finding forever homes for these pets is the goal, so please consider giving another loving pet a hoe if the one you first saw has already been adopted. Come see these sweet dogs and cats and allow them to show you just how special they each can be once they are given a chance to be loved and have a home.
Adoption fees for dogs and cats at the shelter are $25 and there is a $10 micro chip fee. That mean for $35 you have the opportunity to make a friend for life and the opportunity to give a homeless fur kid a forever home.
During November and December, DCAC is supporting Toys For Tots! Bring a toy valued at $10 or more and receive a 1/2 off adoption or bring any new unwrapped toy to donate. There are also weekly specials each month and many of the Dogs and Cats available for adoption have been sponsored for spay/neuter and vaccinations. So don't miss the opportunity to adopt your new best friend during the holidays.
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, Kittens and puppies 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.
