Ziggy

ziggyThought you might like to see a current pic of our precious Ziggy (formerly Bungee). He is the love of our lives….thank you so much for saving him for us.

I am so grateful that someone at the Humane League of Lake Lanier spotted him, and his “failure to thrive” at the dog pound. He was withering away, missing his family. He has been thriving just beautifully for several years now with sister (Boston mix rescue Itsy) and his cousin (kitty cat rescue Oliver). Thank you to the Humane League of Lake Lanier. Keep up the great work!!!!!!

Update from Leigha

Hi Beth,
I saw the new website and want to share a happy tail about Leigha. She’s been with us for over a year now and we couldn’t be happier. She has been a perfect addition to our home. She’s such a wonderful pet, she’s quiet and calm and really funny. She loves her nightly walk and mostly sleeping on the couch all day. Although Leigha is almost 9 she shows no signs of slowing down and we’re all very excited to celibate her ninth birthday.

Leigha enjoys being the only dog and sneaking into bed with Mark and I in the middle of the night. She’s become very spoiled.

Hope all is well.
Sincerely,
Sara, Mark, and Leigha Abel

P.s. Leigha is wearing socks because we were visiting family who do not have a dog friendly house. But Leigha was a model citizen.

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!

Can I rename my rescue pet?

When adopting an adult animal many people worry that changing their pet’s name may be confusing or make it difficult for their pet to adapt.

Don’t worry!  Picking a name is a fun and important part of bonding with your new pet. Keep in mind that the current name may be fairly recent and, even if it’s not, that name may be associated with inconsistent training or expectations.  A new name is a clean slate for you and your pet. Once you decide on a name, your pet will quickly learn that word means treats, attention, and love.

Here are a few tips:

Take your time.  After bringing your new pet home it may take several weeks of adjustment before your pet’s personality shines.  Take that time to get to know your pet and don’t feel that you have to pick a name immediately.  Waiting several weeks to find the right name is just fine.

Easy to pronounce.  A long name may be more difficult for your pet to pick out of what you are saying.  Names ending in an E sound (like Cookie, Maggie, Rocky, etc) are very popular because they are easy to say and easy for dogs to recognize.  Imagine yourself yelling the new name at a dog park to make sure it’s understandable (and something you’re willing to yell in public).  Also keep in mind that a long name will inevitably get shortened to a nickname, so make sure you’re okay with a shortened version.

Not too similar to commands.  Try to avoid any names that are similar to command words you will be using to avoid confusion.  For example, the name ‘Beau’ sounds very similar to ‘No’ and could send mixed signals to your pet.

“We thought you might like to see a couple pics of the star of his class! He is very smart and learned every new task very quickly! We are proud parents!”
