Please consider rescuing one of several dozen dogs and puppies pulled from high-kill animal shelters in Georgia.

The adoption fee is $350 and all the dogs are spayed/neutered, have all the age-appropriate shots (unless the adopters choose to have any other vaccinations given after adoption), have been dewormed, and have been started on heart worm prevention. The adoption fee includes 6 months of the heartworm prevention for dogs over 6 months of age and younger than 8 years of age.*

*The type of heart worm prevention this age brack were put on lasts for 6 months. The others will have one month's free and a coupon for a discount off a six-month supply if they choose to use that particular brand

The rescue saves animals from high-kill shelters and also takes in many abandoned dogs running lose or puppies that are dumped on their door step. They have taken in many animals that are on death's door in the past few weeks that they are overrun with animals that have no shot of being adopted down there.

If you see a dog/puppy photo you are intereted in just email colbertvet@yahoo.com and they can email them the adoption application ahead of time. Otherwise, paperwork will be available the day(s) of the event.

My apologies on late response. Baffled, the name you need to look for is Colbert veterinary rescue service. Not only am I CEO I'm also a vet assistant working side by side with doc. We personally perform every necessary procedure to each and every dog that comes to us. I personally just like all the others here in Georgia that are involved with the rescue emotional, physically, and even financial invest in each and every dog that comes to our rescue. I, again, PERSONALLY pull most of these dogs for high kill shelters and animal control and spend my time and money to pick them up. Which around here that's not just right around the corner it takes anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour an half one way to pick the dogs up.

Also, baffled instead of bash this event, our rescue and the angels that help us, why not EDUCATE yourself first! Come meet us, talk to us, ask us what we do, ask us how we know each and every dogs name and personality traits, ask us why we do what we do!!!! After that if you still have harsh thing to think and say that is fine, everyone is entitled to their opinion. And FYI, the civil war is over and if our southern dogs can bring happiness to their new northern families, live and let live. I applaud you for your local rescues, wish we in the south had more local people to rescue but it is quite the opposite here. Good luck and god bless you baffled I hope you can see the truth thru your rosé colored glasses.

For anyone who doesn't understand why adoption fees exist and are often hundreds of dollars, just read the article at the below link. It is sort of a "Dog Adoption Fees 101" or "Adoption Fees for Dummies" sort of article that just hits the basics. Link: http://dogs.about.com/cs/rescue/a/aa031503a.htm

Thanks JRP. Great link! I hope all the fabulous families who adopted over the weekend took comfort in their new pups and vice versa! I hope all are safe and sound.

I have an idea, let's all bash a great cause with stupid comments. $350 for a puppy is extremely reasonable. I had gotten a puppy last year for "free". Well, she was free, until we had to have her broken tail amputated, get her shots and vaccinations, and have her spayed. I think the price of all that was around $2,000 for a puppy we got for nothing.
