Melonie

When Melonie was brought to the Atlanta Humane Society, we immediately knew we had to help. She had a growth the size of a cantaloupe hanging from her left side, and she was so scared. Our Shelter Medicine Team immediately took x-rays and could see that sweet Melonie's growth was the largest hernia they had [...]

Henry

Something wasn't quite right with Henry. His development wasn't... "on track" with his other litter mates. His head began to tilt sideways and he struggled to keep his balance.  Our Shelter Medicine Team examined him and prescribed a nutritious diet and placed him in a loving foster home to help him outgrow this little neurological [...]

Abigail

Abigail was rescued from a cruel and neglectful situation in Murray County, GA. She and 77 other dogs were living in squalor with dirty water, little food, and no access to much-needed medical care. Your support allowed us to bring these sweet souls back to Atlanta. Sweet Abigail was covered head to toe [...]

Joel

The door opened and... We could see him, but he couldn't see us. Joel's whole body was matted, and his face was tangled with painful burrs that were making it difficult for him to see. He needed immediate care. Our Shelter Medicine Team carefully groomed Joel and cleaned his infected ears and dirty teeth. After [...]

Rescued Poodles

UPDATE: One of the Standard Poodles has already been adopted, and the other two are finishing up treatment for their ear infections after receiving a much-needed grooming. Don't they look great?! After one of their owners passed away and the other was diagnosed with cancer, these poodles needed somewhere to go. Their care had become [...]

Levi

Levi's previous owner didn't know what to do. She brought him to us begging for help, and we knew that this little guy still had some fight left in him. His back legs are partially paralyzed, which makes it impossible for him to run and play like a normal dog. He drags his injured legs [...]

Dabble

Our friends at a tiny animal rescue in Irwinton, GA reached out to ask a big favor... they weren't sure what was the matter with a little puppy in their care, but they knew something wasn't right. He couldn't bear any weight on his front left leg, and it seemed to cause him [...]

As soon as he entered our care, we knew something wasn't right with little Toby. One of his front legs caught the attention of our Shelter Medicine Team, and they soon realized why this little guy was having trouble walking. They carefully examined him and realized that this tiny puppy had a severe [...]
