Wanted - You!

Looking for a way to give back to the canine (or feline, although I don't know why you'd want to) community? Want to meet fellow animal lovers and have a good time? Want to use your brain or brawn power to find new homes for animals and end euthaniasia in our shelter? Join us!!

There are plenty of ways to get involved, and some of it can be done right from the comfort of your home. Cyber-volunteers can help from their home computers, entering dates of our events on Petfinder and other sites. No computer wizards required - this is easy stuff. Phone helpers make calls to pets owners interested in our spay/neuter program.

If you have marketing or graphic design skills, our programs and brochures could use your talents. If you enjoy meeting people and educating the public, our events would be perfect for you.

We've got a great group of enthusiastic and talented people. But we've still got room for you, whether it's for only one hour every other month or 20 hours a week!

For more info, drop us an email at, or come to a meeting on the 3rd Tuesday of each month at the Monroe library on W. Spring St and say hi! We'd love to get acquainted.

New stuff

Time for another update. We've been pretty busy getting our plans scheduled for the year. Adoptions, fundraising events, pet shows, and plenty of other fun stuff.

First, we'll be popping up at Walmarts all over Walton County. Look for us in Monroe the first Saturday of each month beginning in April, and in Loganville on April 18. We'll have brochures and lots of information about adoption, spay/neuter, animal care and WAG.

Here's something new - let your old cellphones go to the dogs! We'll be collecting use consumer electronics (cellphone, iPods, laptops, digital cameras, digital video cameras and used ink jet cartridges) for recycling. Every piece donated provides funds to help the animals. So clear out your junk drawers and help us at the same time.

More coming soon. In the meantime, pet a dog!
