LIST OF NEW ADDITIONAL ANGELS IN NEED OF OUR HELP THIS WEEK
If you want to adopt an animal in need, please request an adoption
application from the shelter via email stating which dog or cat you wish
to adopt. Please include the identification number and not just name
alone. Completed applications are faxed back to the shelter for the
approval process. Please be patient during this time - approved adopters
will be contacted once it is completed. Full veterinary services and
boarding are available at Four Paws Veterinary Hospital and transport of
the animal to the hospital is arranged.
GA AND OUT-OF-STATE RESCUE:
Please contact the Barrow officers for specific information. Approved
GA licensed rescues can pull animals free of charge with the veterinary
care being the responsibility of the rescue. Out of state rescue, please
contact Barrow for more info. At this time, the shelter does not have
specific out-of-state transport help, but may be able to assist with
local, short distance transport if needed and the volunteers are
available to do so.
The adoption fee for any cat is $100. The fee includes: spay or neuter,
physical exam, fecal exam, deworming, rabies vaccine, distemper
vaccine, and microchip. For licensed Georgia rescues there is no charge
to pull a cat, but no veterinary services come with the cat. Out of
state rescues, please contact us for details. *LAST DAY means the date
the cat is scheduled for euthanasia. If we have a cat posted whose last
day has passed, that cat should be considered extremely urgent. Please
call about those cats immediately as they may be subject to euthanasia
at any time. We remove postings on available cats when they leave the
building or their adoption has been completed. If you are a rescuer who
has spoken for a cat or a person with an adoption application on a cat,
do not take offense. We have had rescues and adoptions fall through in
the past and we work hard to make sure no cat falls through the cracks.
The adoption fee for all dogs is $100. The fee includes: Spay or
neuter, physical exam, fecal exam, deworming, rabies vaccine,
distemper/parvo vaccine, and microchip. For licensed Georgia rescues
there is no charge to pull a dog, but no veterinary services come with
the dog. Out of state rescues, please contact us for details. *LAST DAY
means the date the dog is scheduled for euthanasia. If we have a dog
posted whose last day has passed, that dog should be considered
extremely urgent. Please call immediately about those dogs as they may
be subject to euthanasia at any time. We remove postings on available
dogs when they leave the building or their adoption has been completed.
If you are a rescuer who has spoken for a dog or a person with an
application on a dog, do not take offense. We have had rescues and
adoptions fall through in the past and we work hard to make sure no dog
falls through the cracks.
TRANSPORT FOR OUT OF STATE ADOPTERS AND RESCUES:
Transport is the responsibility of the adopter/rescue respectively. At
this time, the shelter does not have specific transport help. There are
multiple resources available for this and please ask those involved in
the rescue community for recommendations and references if needed. For a
list of transport resources, please send a request via email.
IF YOU WISH TO SAVE AN ANIMAL IN NEED - PLEASE DON’T DELAY!
Contact the shelter as early as possible to begin adoption/rescue
preparations. Euthanization typically is on Wednesday mornings and
Barrow is closed to the public. Contacting the shelter NO LATER THAN
5:00 on Tuesdays is in the best interest of the animals as it allows
sufficient time to make adoption or rescue preparations without risk of
last-minute issues. The shelter makes every available effort for the
animals, but they need your timely and respectful cooperation to
continue these efforts. Wednesday: please email the Barrow Co. officers BEFORE 8:30 AM if an animal is still in need of rescue.
SPONSORSHIP TO HELP THE ANIMALS IN NEED is greatly appreciated. If you wish to sponsor one of the animals, please send an email to email@example.com (comcast.net) stating who you wish to sponsor. The information is
forwarded to the officers at the shelter. Sponsorships are meant as
‘pledges’ only for future donations to the approved rescue that pulls
the animal(s) to assist with their medical needs.
WANT TO BE ADDED OR REMOVED FROM THE MAILING LIST? If you would like to be added directly to the Barrow County weekly list of animals in need + updates, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org (@comcast.net). Please
specify dog, cats or both if desired. If you wish to be removed, simply
send an email with 'remove' in the subject line.
WHAT ARE THE HOURS?
Saturdays, and Sundays – CLOSED to the public (but they can still
correspond with people on Wednesdays); other week days – OPEN 8-5. Call

done by Gayla of Barrowbuddies. She takes time in her busy life each
week to do this and is a true blessing to the Barrow animals.
