Come Celebrate Christmas Eve at The Shelter!

Much like the Inn that was full two thousand years ago, our shelter is full right now and there is no room

The Douglas County animal shelter will be open to the public on Christmas eve from noon until 4 PM for adoptions and rescues. Volunteers will be present to assist the public. The shelter has many loving and deserving dogs and cats who need forever homes this Christmas.

Much like the Inn that was full two thousand years ago, our shelter is full right now and the animals need the public's love and assistance to help them find forever homes before it is too late. Please consider coming by the shelter on Christmas Eve and visit with the animals.

Every animal adopted saves two lives. The animal that is adopted and the space provided for another animal to have the opportunity to find a forever home. So please consider coming to the shelter on Christmas eve and hopefully welcoming a new and deserving love into your life.

The Douglas County animal Shelter is located at 1755 County Services Rd. off Cedar Mountain Rd, six miles north of downtown Douglasville. If you take Chicago Ave north from Douglasville, it turns into Cedar Mountian Rd. and 2.1 miles past north Douglas Elementary school, County Services Rd. runs off to the right at the Landfill and the shelter.

Adoption prices for all dogs and cats are $35 and that includes a micro chip. All dogs and cats have received their initial intake vaccinations and many dogs have also had their rabies vaccinations. So too have many of the cats and there are many dogs and cats available that are already altered.

Remember, shelter dogs and cats are the best breed. They realize their plight and they never forget those who cared enough to love them and give them homes and a second chance at life. You can't go wrong with a shelter animal. Come see us tomorrow on Christmas eve and make this a Christmas for you and your family to remember!

Two dogs were adopted today and two others were re-claimed. One woman found her missing dog that she has had since 7th grade. (13 years) He had been missing for two days and she came to the shelter with her mom looking for him. After helping her check all the kennels, we soon discovered that her little dog Snickers wasn't there, but just as hope was fading, a road officer brought in a dog that he had just picked up wandering. It was Snickers, badly injured with cuts to his legs, but alive. The family re-claimed Snickers and took him to see the vet for treatment. Another dog missing all week was located by his owners and two shelter dogs found their forever homes via adoption today. And none of this would have happened absent Tracy Thompson's willingness to work on Christmas Eve to try and help abandoned and lost dogs find homes. Thank you to Tracy and to all of the dedicated shelter staff who work so hard each week to make a difference for these animals.
