Each week, the Douglas County Animal Shelter highlights a cat and a dog
as the “Pets of the Week”. All animals at the Shelter are looking for
loving and permanent homes, and it is hoped that the “Pets of the Week”
highlight will help bring attention to all of the animals currently
housed at the Douglas County Animal Shelter.
Squirt #9533 is a Jack Russell with a very calm personality. He is a young adult but already full grown. He may seem shy at first but after a few minutes he will be in your arms!
Callie #9535 is a medium adult domestic short hair/Cornish Rex calico. She is a very nice kitty who would make a great lap warmer this fall!
There are currently 163 cats and 72 dogs at the Shelter, and the Shelter is overcrowded. Some of the animals have already been spayed or neutered. All adoptable animals are listed on www.petfinder.com.
Cats available for adoption include domestic short hair, domestic medium hair and domestic long hair varieties, as well as two Russian blue kittens. Most of the cats are very sweet, get along with other cats, and are litter box trained.
Dogs include pit bulls, pit bull mixes, Shepherd mixes, a purebred German Shepherd, Labrador Retriever mixes, Australian Shepherd mixes, Chihuahua mixes, Shih Tzu, Poodle mixes, Shar Pei mixes, Terrier mixes, Pug mixes and more. Many of the dogs know simple commands, are very loving, seem to get along well with other dogs and somewhat house-trained.The Douglas County Animal Shelter is open Tuesday through Sunday afternoons, and is located at 1755 County Services Road (off Cedar Mountain Road) adjacent to the Cedar Mountain Landfill approximately 4.5 miles northwest of downtown Douglasville.
