Maggie came to the shelter on March 29 as a stray pickup. She is a lab mix between one to two years old and not altered. Maggie is little miss personality. She smiles a lot. So the employees and volunteers have taken to calling her 'smiles a lot.' Maggie is full grown, about 30 pounds and just a bundle of joy. She is always happy to see visitors and eager to demonstrate her beautiful smile and intelligent eyes. Maggie will make a great companion dog for an individual, or a family dog for a growing family. She is good on a leash and calm once she has the opportunity to be with someone for a while. Come see Maggie soon, she is one sweet little gal and would love to have a forever home with you. Please consider giving her something the really smile about.
If you’re interested in adopting Maggie or any other dog or cat, please visit the Douglas County Animal Shelter 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.
