Boomer came to the shelter on April 26 as a stray pick up. He is a male about two to three years old and he is not neutered. Boomer is under weight and needs that special someone with an abundance of TLC to help him learn to trust again. He has already come a long way from the shy little guy that first came to the shelter. He is a Labrador-golden retriever mix and he has that big dog appeal that you can only get from a lab or retriever.
Boomer has gotten over his shyness and he loves people and attention from visitors. Come see Boomer this week and give him a chance to show you how special he really is. One great dog who needs a second chance and a loving family.
If you’re interested in adopting Boomer or any of the other dogs or cats, 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 each 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 the opportunity to give a furkid a forever home is a small price to pay. All dogs presently receive intake inoculations for kennel cough, parvo and distemper (cats receive 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.
