Meet Our Longest Residents!

Meet Pique! This guy (his name is pronounced PEEK) is an energetic, friendly and loving Labrador Retriever mix. Pique is 8-months-old and came to us as puppy in February. He has spent most of his life in our shelter, growing up in front of staff and volunteers while waiting for his new home. Pique loves walks and to is happiest outside in our play yard. While walking through our shelter, some people may be overwhelmed by dogs like Pique, who jump up and down with so much energy. In fact, most of these dogs, when taken outside, aren’t nearly as energetic as they seem in their pens. Pique has never learned how to behave in a house, so he will need an owner who has the patience to teach him manners and obedience. This guy is a smart dog, though, and he’ll catch on quick. Pique loves people and enjoys cuddling and leaning on anyone around. There is no doubt that Pique will be an amazing dog for someone. Pique is a sponsored pet, his adoption fee was covered by a local ordained minister, Clark Ashton, so that his new family can spend a little more on treats, toys and food. If you think Pique sounds like the dog for you, find out more about him here: http://www.atlantahumane.org/adoption/adopt-pet-dog.asp

This is Jamie! This girl is our longest cat resident, clocking in currently at a 7 month stay. Jamie is a beauitful cat with a great personality to match, so her extended stay with us has left many staff and volutneers puzzled. Jamie stands out a little from other cats because of her distinctive “bangs” or “hat” of grey fur on her head. She also has striking green-yellow eyes. Jamie’s a young girl, only 3.5-years-old and will still play if given the chance. She is very friendly and loves to be petted. At times she can want to do her own thing and has an independent streak. Jamie would make a great pet for just about anyone. Since she has been at our shelter for longer than 60 days, her adoption fee has been reduced by half to $42.50.
