This wonderful, abandoned young cat was being fed by a lady who's spouse would not allow her to bring him inside. In fact, the husband was giving her a hard time about even providing him with food outside their home. The family was about to go away on vacation for two weeks, which would have left the poor boy out there on his own with nothing to eat.
A sponsor agreed to pay for his neuter, vax and combo. Unfortunately, Dean Martin (so-named because he's a classic charmer), came up positive for FeLV. He's perfectly fine in all ways (that one eye is completely better now). With so much love to give, he is just too precious to be euthanized. Please help this member of the Rat Pack find safe haven!

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.
