Cuddles

Sweet Cuddles had horrible matted fur when he came into our care. The mats were so tight, Cuddles couldn't move without being in pain. We needed to provide Cuddles comfort immediately and the mats were so bad, we had to shave him down. But, we didn't want Cuddles to be embarrassed by his new haircut so decided to turn him [...]

Agnes’ Second Chance

Agnes was sick, emaciated, and scared. She was being treated for parvovirus at a local transfer partner when a painful mass popped up on her side and exploded. She received a drain for the mass so it wouldn't get infected. Somewhere along the way, Agnes also developed an upper respiratory infection. We treated [...]

Update on Maggie

Maggie's skin was red, sore, and extremely irritated when she first arrived at the Atlanta Humane Society. She was cold and emaciated and had lost almost all her fur from mange, an itchy skin infection. She wouldn't eat and would barely move.

Wilma’s Second Chance

Every inch of her body was covered in yeast. She was constantly scratching, and her skin was constantly flaking off. The infection had spread so much, the hair around her eyes had fallen off. When we looked in her floppy little ears, the infection we found had clogged up her ears completely. We put her under [...]

Rosie’s Second Chance

Rosie came to AHS from a transfer partner with a pre-existing leg fracture that appeared like it had not been treated properly. Our veterinarians did x-rays on her leg, and decided to see if the fracture would heal on its own with some rest. Otherwise, they knew they'd have to amputate. Rosie spent three weeks in a foster home, under strict cage rest [...]

Pixie’s Second Chance

We don't know what caused Pixie's eye to swell up, but she was so injured, her eye was all but completely swollen shut. It was painful, and you could tell this sweet girl just didn't feel good. She would lazy around in her crate and would slowly roll over for comforting belly rubs when you passed by her. Our transport [...]
