He needed immediate care. Our Shelter Medicine Team carefully groomed Joel and cleaned his infected ears and dirty teeth. After [...]

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 [...]

Eloise

We heard tiny, desperate meows coming from a small crate that had been dropped off in front of our Admissions department and immediately rushed to see what was inside. Much to our surprise, we found two tiny kittens that needed love and care. Upon closer inspection, one of the two kittens was screaming [...]

Shelley

Shelley was one of 32 dogs rescued from severe neglect. They were living in their own filth without any access to much-needed Veterinary care. As soon as we saw Shelley, we knew she was in some of the worst shape imaginable. Her tiny, frail body was matted from head to toe, and she could barely [...]
