SUMMARY 9/24/09: From Janice Riccio, Quietzsch@aol.com
Due to the massive flooding in the Atlanta area, and specifically Cobb
County, many people displaced by floodwaters left their pets with Cobb
County Animal Control. The shelter was slammed before the floods, so they
had no room to house newcomers. They were desperate to find rescue for dogs
already housed there or face euthanasia…

I’ve taken in 9 dogs and have no place to house them, other then boarding at
two vet offices. This is very temporary, and although the vets have
generously boarded the dogs at a discount, this will add up quickly — not
to mention the other costs for rabies vaccines, altering, etc.

SEND MONETARY DONATIONS TO:
Call vet offices directly to make donations for flood-affected dogs (shown below).

All of dogs below are current on routine shots, including rabies. All are
microchipped, dewormed, and tested negative for heartworm.

cobb 1
BEAR is a super sweet 3 year old chow/shepherd mix girl. Shelter staff say
she is good with kids and pets and is leash trained. Her bottom is all in a
wiggle when you pet her.

MAC is a 3 year old, unaltered male collie mix. He is so much cuter in
person! He arrived with a flea allergy, since treated. He’s bathed and his
fur is growing back nicely.

BIG RED is a fantastic dog! He is a young retriever mix who follows
commands, is leash trained, and loves to play ball.

Poor ELLIE… Such a beautiful and sweet 4 year old girl whose family could
no longer keep her. She is spayed, leash trained and housetrained.

BALENTINO is an adorable 3 year old boy. His family was unable to keep him,
though he did everything right.  He is housetrained, leash trained, good
with kids and pets, and very well behaved.

BARNEY is such a cute little Chihuahua mix who is 4 years old, and 15 lbs.
He came to the shelter with his buddy Fred.

FRED is Barney’s sidekick. He is 4 years old and 13 lbs. You couldn’t go
wrong with these 2 lovebugs.

KRISTY is a 5 month old golden mix puppy. She won’t be too big when she
grows up…she is only 18 lbs. now and so sweet!  We likely have rescue
placement or a potential adopter for her.

LEAH is a super sweet 3 year old girl, maybe basset/lab? She is spayed,
house and leash trained. The shelter says she is good with kids and pets.
She was adopted a couple of months ago, but the family decided their
lifestyle was too active for a pet so they dumped her back in doggy jail.

  1. Hi,

    I work for the GA SPCA. I am able to temporarily foster any kind of caged animal – pretty much anything except cats and dogs. I am already fostering animals for the SPCA, but no small animals have come in. Please call me ASAP if you need any fosters. I will jump in my car and come get them. My house has been inspected and approved for fostering. I can bring that documentation if you need it.

    Thanks!!
