Puppie Love Donates $5,000!
A Letter From Our President: MOAS Advocate Program Begins
Our friends at Puppie Love® graciously chose us as one of the two shelters that would receive a $5,000 donation to help treat animals in need. Here’s a portion of their press release on their generous donation to our shelter:
“Without our Puppie Love® customers, we could not make this donation happen. Like most shelters, MOAS relies heavily on donations, especially for their medical cases. They just had a 4 month old Beagle puppy (Nicholas, pictured below) surrendered to them with a broken femur and pelvis (requiring surgery), along with testing positive for Parvo. He is currently at the University of Georgia receiving treatment. They are also treating an 8 Year old Hound (Molly, pictured below) that is Heartworm Positive, needs an FHO surgery, and also ACL surgery. Our Puppie Love customers are helping this organization to continue their mission, which is to save as many lives as possible. Learn more about this amazing organization on their Website, Facebook, and Instagram at the links below 😊”
We can’t thank Puppie Love® enough for their generous support!
Help us Save Canelo's Leg for Christmas!
More and more these days, people want to adopt shelter animals, but they also want an animal that knows basic commands, is perfectly house-trained, and won’t jump up on them, gets along with kids or other animals, etc., etc. At a shelter as busy as ours is, it’s sometimes hard for our staff to know everything that a potential adopter might want to know about an animal or to help train an animal to be able to provide everything that a potential adopter might want. Now, all adopters should be prepared to work with their new pet to develop a routine and train them to meet their own expectations, but the more work we can do to prepare a pet with those skills that are generally sought after, the more likely they are to find a good home and to stay in that home after being adopted.
Help Us Earn a $1k Matching Spay/Neuter Donation!
This year all Canelo wants for Christmas is his two front paws. This adorable 8-month-old shepherd mix puppy was surrendered to Madison-Oglethorpe Animal Shelter when his owner was unable to care for his injury and was also moving away and couldn't take him. He has been in pain for a long time, and we need your help! He is an incredibly sweet boy who loves to snuggle, play with toys, and chew on bones. Canelo requires specialized surgery to save his leg, and we’re trying to raise $3,000 to cover the cost. We’ve already raised over $700, but we still need your help!

Madison Journal Today: Shelter showcases some of the best of human care and concern
Meet Buster! This pup has had a really hard life so far. We don't know much about what it was like before he came to the shelter as a stray, but it definitely wasn't good. Buster is extremely emaciated (you can see every rib and notch in his spine), he has no body fat to help keep him warm in this colder weather, and he's heartworm positive on top of it all. :(
On the plus side, he's a happy, wiggly pup who loves nothing more than being with people. He's so excited when anyone comes up to his kennel, and he makes a high-pitched barking cry whenever you leave his side. The condition that he's in and the fact that he still loves people so much will just about break your heart.
