Sammy Goes Home!

Congratulations to Sammy on his new family. Sammy, a German Shepherd mix, was skinny and tested heartworm positive when we rescued him from the shelter about 9 months ago. We treated his heartworms, fattened him up and told him we'd find him an awesome home. And it finally happened. The Boyd family was looking for a canine companion for their two boys, ages 8 and 10, and Sammy seemed like the perfect fit. So he's finally out of the barn/kennel area and inside a home where he belongs. Yay Sammy!!!!

Here's Sammy sacked out in front of the TV with his new pal!

Park Place or Bust

We had a great time at the Park Place HOA Block Party in Loganville on Saturday, May 26. Our amazing volunteers Lacie and Sydney were there to help us out. One of our new rescued dogs, Bruno (Brett's brother), helped out at the information table. Plus one of our rescued dogs, Chip, found his forever home - the icing on our weekend cake! Thanks to the Park Place residents for their hospitality.

Brett gets a bus ticket!

Here's one of our newest rescues, Brett. The 6 month old Lab/Doberman mix was rescued along with his brother, Bruno, from the Walton County shelter. Brett is an enthusiastic young guy who, like many teenage dogs, needs a few doggy etiquette lessons. But he seems to be a very loving dog and we're happy to offer him the chance at a new life.

Duke's Designer Kennel

So our boy Duke decided to redesign the front of his kennel to allow for easier in/out access. Not good - obviously 11.5 gauge wire is no match for him.

A trip to Tractor Supply and $569 later, we try again with 8 gauge welded wire, plus an extra steel gate just for the fun of it.

Who, ME???

WAG 'n Walk cancelled

To all our friends –

After consulting lots of weather maps, there’s no getting around the gloomy and heavily wet weather forecast for tomorrow. In the interest of our sponsors/vendors, we’ve decided to wave the white flag to Mother Nature and cancel the WAG ‘n Walk for May 4. Our plan is to reschedule for a fall date to be determined. All sponsor/vendor fees will be credited to the new date and we hope you’ll join us then.

For walkers who raised donations, we're working on the best way to get those turned in - bear with us a couple of days. Rain may be forecast, but there are still animals needing rescue and your help is very much appreciated by all!

Thanks so much for your support.

A wet WAG 'n Walk?

Is Mother Nature a pet lover? The forecast makes us wonder..

But the WAG 'n Walk is RAIN OR SHINE and there's no rain date. If rain is heavy, perhaps the most exciting activity will be in the "Complaining Tent," where event organizers stand around bemoaning the rotten weather.

So plan to grab an umbrella or rain poncho and let's try to have some fun.

The Walton Tribune joins the party!

Welcome to our WAG 'n Walk sponsor the Walton Tribune - the newspaper in the know in Walton County and beyond! They're great pet lovers, too. Thanks so much for your support!
