Saving Lives

Good news, Great news from Walton FD - the oxygen masks we supplied a few years back worked again!

******************************* From Walton Co. FD

On November 18, 2011 Walton County Fire Rescue along with Monroe Fire Department and Loganville Fire Department responded to a structure fire on H.D.Atha Road. When the fire department arrived we had a large out building at a 40% involvement. We were notified by the homeowner that he had his pet dog in the outbuilding. Our firefighters were able to make entry into the smoke filled building and recover the dog. The dog was a Boston Terrier and was suffering from smoke inhalations and shock. We applied the Rescue Mask, (that you supplied), and within 3 to 4 minutes the dog had recover enough that he was running around as though nothing had happened. Thanks again!  Jon Marsh Battalion Chief Walton County Fire Rescue

Animal Friends

Here are some new WAG friends: Camille Malcom, Graham Lucas, Ella King and Sara Cate Blackstone. These awesome 8 year olds had a joint birthday party but instead of presents, they decided to raise money for homeless animals. What an awesome job they did, raising nearly $1,000! Amazing.

They stopped by the WAG office to deliver their gift and some pet food. We were really glad to meet them! Lots of animals will be helped by their generosity.

Thanks again girls!

Holiday Happenings

Lots of fun stuff coming up! The Monroe Christmas parade will be on Dec. 1 and we'll be there as usual with our rescue dogs. Also the Loganville Christmas parade on Dec. 3, need happy walkers for that event, too. Parades are lots of fun and we have plenty of goofy Christmas caps to wear! As if that's any sort of incentive.


Take a look at these cuties! We pulled them from the shelter last week - turns out they were covered in lice and malnourished. But they're getting great care and will be up for adoption soon!

Pet lovers unite!

Look for pet-friendly help or services in our area? Check out, a resource guide to various pet and non-pet related businesses. Everyone listed is a WAG supporter.

Look up a business and give them a call. Let's help those who help us!

Keepin' busy

I was rather busy last week. We took over 500 lbs of dog/cat food to the WAG pet food pantry at FISH in Monroe. Great donations from Purina, Walmart and Petsmart!

Also took this sweet old blind girl to Cornelia on Saturday to meet her new owner. Sad story - her human died and someone cleaning out the house just put her out on the street to fend for herself! Humans are puzzling creatures. She ended up the shelter - most old dogs don't last long. But thanks to seeing her picture on their website (, Jeanne from NC welcomed her into a new home.

I love happy endings!

Boss Brothers Saturday

Check us out on Saturday, 9/24/11, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Boss Brothers Country Store on Highway 78 in Loganville. Paradox Spay/Neuter clinic is hosting a low-cost vaccination clinic, with $10 rabies shots - other vax are available, also microchipping.

See you there!


A Home at Last

Let the trumpets blare - WAG has a place to call home!

We turned a very old and neglected house into our own office, complete with a cat room, volunteer office and our very own flushing toilet. And we're very excited - especially about the flushing toilet thing!

Thanks to Diversified Development for renting the house to us cheep cheep. It had been vacant for about 10 years, so WAG volunteers were very busy for a few weeks scrubbing and painting to get things looking good. Thanks to Albright's Flooring for a bargain priced bathroom floor, Tapp Plumbing for donating their time to get the bathroom ship-shape, Jason Autry, the Zajacs, the Phillips, Javier Bob, Tom and Stephanie Campbell, Bill Dean and Gustavo Ruiz for LOTS of elbow grease. Thanks also go to our anonymous donors who dug into their basements or wallets to help us with furnishings/future rent.

And if that wasn't good enough, students at Loganville Christian Academy helped put icing on the cake with an awesome landscaping job. Now we have pretty rose bushes in front, a crape myrtle tree and stepping stones to the front door thanks to the 5th grade and senior volunteers. Woo Hoo!

The house is located at 3904 Oak Grove Road, at the corner of Oak Grove and Brand Road. Easier to remember is that we're directly behind the Racetrack gas station on Hwy. 78 just past Petsmart. Better yet, we're within walking distance of Petsmart, so we can use the house to support our weekend Petsmart adoptions. And we love volunteers, so let us know if you have time to help with office or other tasks!

Ring Ring Ring Ring Ring RIng

Thanks to Windstream, anyone trying to call WAG is hearing nothing but lots of endless ringing. Don't worry - with the efficient customer service we're receiving, it will be fixed sometime during this decade. Maybe.

Sorry for the snafu!

A New NEW meeting place

OK, Corralejo has great food, but we've found a better meeting place - our own office!

We've been fortunate to find a small house on Oak Grove Road in Loganville, right behind the Racetrack gas station on Hwy. 78. Owned by Diversified Development, the land is being marketed as commercial property, but the owners offered WAG an affordable rental rate for use of the house until the land sells.

So stay tuned!

new meeting location

Our new meeting spot: Corralejo Mexican Restaurant, 730 Highway 138, Monroe, GA. The restaurant is next to Chick-Fil-A. Meeting starts at 6:30 p.m. on the third Tuesday of each month. Come join us - the food's great!
