Maggie came to the shelter on April 1 as an owner surrender. Maggie is listed as being good with kids, friendly and she is considered an all around good dog by everyone who knows her. Maggie is part American bulldog and part Labrador retriever, but her spirit is more laid back Lab.
She has a beautiful white coat with caramel highlights on her face and tail and she has a sweet and patient demeanor with everyone she meets. Maggie would make a great addition to any family looking for that special dog to be part of their loving home.
If you’re interested in adopting Maggie or any other dog or cat, please visit the located at 1755 County Services Road (off Cedar Mountain Road). The shelter is open Tuesday through Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on Sunday from 2 to 5 p.m. The shelter is closed to the public on Monday, but open to rescue organizations on Mondays.
Pet listings are updated frequently, however, animals featured may be adopted and that after all is the goal. If the pet you are interested in has been adopted, please consider giving another of the many available pets an opportunity to be your forever friend and allow them to show you just how special they are when they are given a chance.
Adoption fees for dogs and cats is $25 and there is a $10 micro chip fee. $35 for the opportunity to make a friend for life and to give a furkid a forever home is a small price to pay. All dogs and cats presently receive intake inoculations for kennel cough and distemper and 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. 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.
