Wilson...one lucky dog!

As we moved from 2013 to 2014 and were thinking about what we hoped would be a better year ahead for ourselves, our families and loved ones, Wilson was out on the streets.  He suffered from demodectic mange (the non-contagious type), a yeast infection in his skin, a double ear infection and double eye infection.  Most of his fur was missing.  All he had was a patch about the size of a nickel.

Gizmo Future Dog Therapist

Sonya shared a "Happy Tail" -- "I adopted Gizmo a year ago, March 21.  I specifically acopted him with the goal of dog therapy in mind.  While that training has gotten postponed due to various unexpected circumstances, I still do plan to begin training with him. He is such a sweetheart! His number one like is being held, loved, and adored by his human family. Next comes most any small squeaky toy. We all love him so much, taking him with us whenever we can.

Calendar boy Charlie

Rebecca shares their "Happy Tail" - "Back in 2007, we dropped by the SPCA to see some of the dogs up for adoption since we had recently put down our 18 year old Dachshund Cocoa. In the reception room, here was a skinny basset hound/dachshund mix named Charlie playing with a kitten. Since most of my dogs I’ve owned were not the “best of friends” with cats, I was so surprised with his playfulness.

Cooper's story

Bethany shared this "Happy Tail": This is our baby Cooper after playing around the grill outside! We got him almost a year ago from the Georgia SPCA. Back then his name was Thomas! We love Cooper so much! Thanks to the amazing people at the SPCA for making our family complete!

Happy Cash

Remember Piglet? He's now named Cash, in honor of his adopter's favorite singer, Johnny Cash. Here's a photo of Piglet when we first rescued him from Floyd County Animal Control, and a photo of him now. His foster mom babysat him last weekend, and was very happy to find he remembered her. He's grown into a very happy, well behaved boy, and has a wonderful home.

Loving Oliver

Jen Rasnake shared a "happy tail":
Thank you very much for offering the low cost vaccination clinic it is such a help. Your volunteers were very nice and it was such a quick and easy process. I am passing on the info to others. I adopted a dog (Oliver in the pic) from you last Thanksgiving and have been soo happy with my little guy. Keep up the good work!

Beautiful Brownie

Here's a Happy Tail from Brownie (on the left), who was with the GA SPCA for quite some time before being adopted last month. Brownie says life is good, she has slimmed down and loves the early morning walks in the park with step-sister Della, also adopted from GA SPCA in 2010. Keep in touch, Brownie.
