Please Help Boomer

Hi, my name is Boomer and I am one of the Griffin Mud Dogs that was rescued in Griffin, Georgia from a hoarding situation.  The Georgia SPCA has given me a new chance at life, but because of the conditions I lived in at my previous home, I have heartworms.  I have already been neutered, vaccinated, micro chipped and I am currently being treated for kennel cough so my costs are already mounting.  I will need my heartworm treatment by the end of August so I can start looking for my new family.

Get the facts about Canine Influenza

Due to the outbreak of Canine Influenza in the area, local vets are recommending avoiding areas where lots of dogs gather. The virus is very contagious, though rarely fatal.  Dogs who are young, old, or whose health is compromised are most at risk. Since the health of both dogs visiting our vaccine clinics and our adoptable dogs are our first priority, we have decided to cancel the vaccination clinic scheduled for this Saturday, July 25th. Click here for information about Canine Influenza, including transmission, symptoms and prevention, and, as always, please contact your regular veterinarian with any concerns you have.


Give us your vote and help us build a Shelter!

We are competing for $25,000 and a year of mentorship from Wells Fargo to help us begin the campaign to build our own Shelter!  We've rescued and adopted over 8,000 dogs and cats since we opened in 2007, and there are so many more animals who deserve a second chance at a loving home, but our space limitations are a barrier to increasing the number we can rescue.  Please go to this link every day through July 19, and cast your vote for the Georgia SPCA, and ask your friends to do the same.  We need your vote -- and so do the animals!

New Partner for Pets!

You may already know that we have many ways you can "give while you shop" -- that is, when you make a purchase from one of our partners, it benefits the Georgia SPCA.  We've added a new partner today, with the BISSELL Partners for Pets program.  When you purchase any pet product on, a portion of your purchase price will be donated through the BISSELL Pet Foundation to the Georgia SPCA!    Purchase a product through this link, enter the code ADOPT at checkout, and select Georgia SPCA from the list of participating organizations, and we will receive $1 for purchases under $40, $5 for purchases from $40-99.99 and $10 for purchases over $100.
