June Shelter News


Well we haven’t reached the dog days of summer yet, but I’m sure they are around the corner!  The dogs definitely like cooler weather, and the volunteers enjoy spending outdoor time giving them walks and playing ball in the yards.  Currently, 126 dogs have found their new loving homes.  We thank you if you were one of those adoptive families or if you helped spread the word about the shelter.Word of mouth is one of the best (and least expensive!) advertising ways for us.  I’m adding our latest poster here for you to see most of the current batch of dogs that are available.   If you’d like me to send you a full size copy of the poster so that you can hang it up in your area, please email me back, and I will.   Things can change quickly; if you see one you’re interested in, don’t hesitate to call!

Ask any of the volunteers which dog is their favorite and you will get a different answer from each one. Some love the small dogs best like Zeus or Freddie, others love Sammi who has been with us the longest, some prefer ball players like Shelby, others like the couch potatoes such as Solomon. Each dog is special in its own way and is just waiting to find that perfect niche home to fit into.

We do have several events coming up. The Deli Dog Day at the Olde Corner Deli in Hartfield is this Friday June 29th from 11:30-1:30. One of the volunteers will be there with a shelter dog or two as well as information about the other available dogs, volunteer applications and dog sponsorship info. You can buy raffle tickets for a wonderful dog themed raffle basket that will be there or if you bring a donation of a new Nylabone, Kong toy or destructive-proof plush dog toy you will receive a free raffle ticket as a thank you!

One of our biggest fundraisers (and a way for you to either empty out your cupboards or refill them!) is the 6th Annual Dog-gone Good Yard Sale coming up July 27th and 28th from 9-4 at the shelter. Starting July 2nd the shelter will be taking donations for this big event. We are looking for good, saleable items, new or used, but NO electronics, mattresses, TV’s or clothing. Books, jewelry, furniture, kitchen items, holiday items, sports equipment, lawn and garden items, knick knacks, linens, records, CDs, DVDs etc. are all suggestions to donate. So declutter your attic, kitchen, garage or barn and think of donating to the dogs. Then look at all that empty space you created and stop back to the yard sale to fill in those empty spots!

As always, thank you for your support!
