Last Thursday I spent the morning photographing the adoptable dogs at Dekalb County Animal Services. If you know of anyone looking to add another family member, please please PLEASE tell them about these sweet dogs desperately awaiting homes in our Atlanta-area shelters, which are overflowing with homeless dogs and cats.
For those unsure about rescuing, please know that there are so many wonderful and perfectly adoptable babies in these shelters. They are not there because there’s something wrong with them – shelter dogs aren’t “broken.” (A perfect example is our Ellie – she was pulled from animal control and we had her certified as a therapy dog, visiting retirement homes, libraries, and schools, within months of her adoption!)
So please – please consider rescue and share these faces with everyone you know. Help them find the homes they deserve.
Contact Jamie at Jsmartinez [at] dekalbcountyga [dot] gov for details about any of the pups you see below.
