September 26th, 2009 12:08 pm by Kelly Garbato

Below you will find the second of two action alerts from Kinship Circle, detailing disaster relief needs in the Southeastern U.S., which is currently drying out from recent flooding (and preparing for another bout of heavy rains, to boot). This particular alert focuses on Cobb County Animal Control in Marietta, Georgia, which is inundated with animals. Even if you cannot foster or adopt a dog – or make a monetary donation to help with rescue expenses – please spread the word.

SUMMARY 9/24/09: From Janice Riccio, Quietzsch [at] aol.com —
Due to the massive flooding in the Atlanta area, and specifically Cobb County, many people displaced by floodwaters left their pets with Cobb County Animal Control. The shelter was slammed before the floods, so they had no room to house newcomers. They were desperate to find rescue for dogs already housed there or face euthanasia…

I’ve taken in 9 dogs and have no place to house them, other then boarding at two vet offices. This is very temporary, and although the vets have generously boarded the dogs at a discount, this will add up quickly — not to mention the other costs for rabies vaccines, altering, etc.

SEND MONETARY DONATIONS TO:
Call vet offices directly to make donations for flood-affected dogs (shown below).
* Averill Animal Hospital / 415 Villa Rica Way / Marietta, GA 30064 / 770-422-2402
* Etowah Veterinary Hospital / 4953 Canton Road / Marietta, GA 30066 / 770-926-8888

All of dogs below are current on routine shots, including rabies. All are microchipped, dewormed, and tested negative for heartworm.

Kinship Circle - 2009-09-25 - Cobb County Dogs Need Rescue 01

BEAR is a super sweet 3 year old chow/shepherd mix girl. Shelter staff say she is good with kids and pets and is leash trained. Her bottom is all in a wiggle when you pet her.

MAC is a 3 year old, unaltered male collie mix. He is so much cuter in person! He arrived with a flea allergy, since treated. He’s bathed and his fur is growing back nicely.

BIG RED is a fantastic dog! He is a young retriever mix who follows commands, is leash trained, and loves to play ball.

Poor ELLIE… Such a beautiful and sweet 4 year old girl whose family could no longer keep her. She is spayed, leash trained and housetrained.

BALENTINO is an adorable 3 year old boy. His family was unable to keep him, though he did everything right. He is housetrained, leash trained, good with kids and pets, and very well behaved.

Kinship Circle - 2009-09-25 - Cobb County Dogs Need Rescue 02

BARNEY is such a cute little Chihuahua mix who is 4 years old, and 15 lbs. He came to the shelter with his buddy Fred.

FRED is Barney’s sidekick. He is 4 years old and 13 lbs. You couldn’t go wrong with these 2 lovebugs.

KRISTY is a 5 month old golden mix puppy. She won’t be too big when she grows up…she is only 18 lbs. now and so sweet! We likely have rescue placement or a potential adopter for her.

LEAH is a super sweet 3 year old girl, maybe basset/lab? She is spayed, house and leash trained. The shelter says she is good with kids and pets. She was adopted a couple of months ago, but the family decided their lifestyle was too active for a pet so they dumped her back in doggy jail.
