Jaye never shys away from the tough cases. During times where we've needed emergency fosters, Jaye has been there. When we desperately needed a foster for a hospice dog, Jaye stepped up. There's never a case too hard to handle for Jaye and this type of dedication and patience inspires us every single day. Read more about Jaye's story in our latest volunteer profile:

My first dog was a pit bull named Lulu. As a first-time dog owner, I had no clue what to do. We relied on the kindness of friendly faces at our local pet store and throughout this dog-loving city. Over time, I got the right gear and figured out a few things along the way. Of course, I also got a few things wrong.  
Lulu didn’t judge.  
She greeted each day with love and enthusiasm. Some of my best lessons came from the other end of the leash. Lulu taught me to recognize each day as a new opportunity.  In honor of Lulu, I want to share a few tips that will beneficial for dog owners, particularly if it’s your first time with a dog.

Otter 2Hi friends! Otter here -

I’m going on week 12 of life, and just wanted to tell you about all the cool things that have been happening so far!

In case you haven’t yet heard, I was born in the shelter. The shelter was nice and the people were friendly, but it was no place for a puppy. So me, my 8 siblings and my mom got to go stay with a foster in their home until we were old enough to be adopted. She took such good care of us but alas, it was time for us all to go our separate ways.

A guest blog by our Community Engagement Manager, Sarah Rosenberg

We were invited this past week to visit with a group of high school students at the Connections School of Atlanta. To many, this is considered a “special needs” school. To the Connections School, it represents an educational community that embraces neurodiversity and celebrates its students’ differences.


On February 25th, our Fulton County Animal Services officers, along with the Atlanta Police Department, found a seven-month-old puppy with duct tape covering its entire face, eyes and neck. She was found in the woods in terrible condition and immediately brought into our care. We named her Eve.
