Adoption Event Sunday June 14th

Adoption Event Sunday June 14th

Sunday June 14th we will be at the Petsmart in Cumming from 12:30pm until 4:00pm.

Come out and meet Popeye, our newest rescue!  Popeye showed up at animal control with a severely damaged eye after being attacked by a larger dog. Animal control did not want to euthanize him but couldn’t take him in with his injuries so they contacted us to see if we could help him get the medical attention he needed.  After an expensive surgery, Popeye has bounced back and is a happy affectionate little man ready to find his forever home.

Come meet him at our upcoming adoption event and please consider making a donation so we can continue to save animals in need.  Thank you for your continued support!

TOBY THE FEDERAL OFFICER


Toby is joining the USDA’s Beagle Brigade

When in need of an Officer with special talents the USDA knew exactly where to look, a local animal shelter. Toby, a homeless Beagle has become a USDA Federal Officer and will soon be protecting our borders.

Toby was found on the side of the road guarding the body of his sister who had been hit by a car. A good samaritan picked him up. When his owner could not be found he was turned over to the Humane League of Lake Lanier, a local animal shelter. Placed in a foster home, Toby is a typical happy Beagle who really likes his dinner. “He’s very food motivated” says foster mom Kelly Emery, “and that is one of the reasons the USDA was so interested in him.”

Toby was put through a variety of tests including behavior analysis, health examinations and a walk through at Atlanta’s airport. Showing the same dedication he had for his sister, Toby excelled at every test. Once he completes training, Toby will be assigned a human partner. Together they will conduct inspections at international airports sniffing for prohibited agricultural products and pests. The Government Accountability Office calls these agriculture canine teams “a key tool for targeting passengers and cargo for inspection”. Paid in kibble and belly rubs, Toby is officially a United States Federal Officer with all the protections the title entails.

“I think the lesson we all can learn from Toby”, says Humane League of Lake Lanier president Beth Mulrooney, “is that there are a lot of good pets at our local animal shelters. Whatever you are looking for in a pet, you can find it at a shelter”.

Our Hero

Some things can really just make your day. As part of a 2nd grade assignment, Alyssa Maicon had to write about one of her heroes. Her mother sent us her report:

GOING TO THE RACES!

Time to go to the races!!! The Humane League will be staffing a booth at the Formula Drift races on Friday May 6, and Saturday May 7. This is a great opportunity to spread the word of responsible pet ownership to a demographic very much outside our norm. It’s due to the generosity of Petfinder.com, Formula D, and one of the drivers, Dennis Mertzanis

We need volunteers to help staff the booth. Please contact Bill at LanierPets@gmail.com if you would like to come out and work the booth for a few hours and then enjoy some of the racing.
