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.
This blog is truly full of "happy tails" -- stories about animals who were rescued by the Georgia SPCA and were adopted into their forever homes. To add your own, click here.
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!
Christine Kopsho shared a "Happy Tail": "This is Savannah (formerly known as Gene). She loves the outdoors and the snow. She is such a blessing to us and we adore this beautiful pup!"
Wille's story, as told by his foster mom, Yvonne Stirling:
"Isn't 10 months too much time to invest to find one cat the perfect home? Not for the Georgia SPCA! The cost of time was a small price to pay to save a terrified two-year-old orange tabby named Willie.
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.
George and Charlie went to their new home about a week ago. Guess you could say they're settling in nicely!

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!
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.

Cathy Campbell Jordan Wrote: "Amiga (formerly Mandy) has been with us for a week and a half. She is fitting right in, and we all love her! She and the dogs have become friends, although the dachshund doesn't trust her. Small wonder, since Amiga hides and then jumps out at her. :"-) Amiga is gaining weight, and her fur is growing out. She's a sweet, purring, people-loving cat. Thank you, Ga SPCA, for mi Amiga!"
Happy endings are not as common in real life as they are in fairy tales. Which is why the story of Honey the cat seemed destined for a sad conclusion. She was found in Douglasville, in wretched condition, with a computer chip that identified her as coming from the Netherlands. For weeks the Georgia SPCA was trying to find her owners or, at least, a home for the holidays. And ...then...today.....well, let's take you back a bit.
