Passed By Pets

We need your help! These adorable pets are available for adoption, but for one reason or another, have been in our care the longest. While our average length of stay is usually around 35 days, we do have someĀ animals that have been passed by for far longer than that, making those pets our longest term residents. If you wish to meet any of our long term residents, please drop by during our hours of operations: Monday-Friday 10 a.m.-6 p.m., Saturday 10 a.m.-5 p.m., Sunday 12-5 p.m. For more information, please call 706-660-5920 or email



Vera is FIV+ (Feline Immunodeficiency Virus). She can still live a normal life, however she will require lots of love and attention. Vera will need to either be the only cat in her home, or live in a home with other FIV+ cats.

Vera is a beautiful cat who is just the sweetest feline you’ve ever met. She loves to lounge about and spend time with the people who visit her. She loves to be pet and lavished with attention. If you are looking for a cat who is a sweetheart who will love you immensely, come meet Vera!



This is a true passed by pet. Nymeria is a good, all around dog who frequently gets looked over because of her brown coat and shy demeanor. Don’t let that fool you- once Nymeria warms up to you, she is sweet and loving and full of personality. She would love to go home with a family that has some time to help her with her obedience training and potty manners.


Weasley came to PAWS all the way from Germany! He is rather picky about who he chooses to associate with and likes to live life a bit more independently. When he arrived at PAWS, Weasley’s teeth were in really bad shape and most of them needed to be removed. Because of this, he requires a wet food only diet. Even though not every person is Weasley’s cup of tea, once he meets his perfect human(s), we believe he will warm up to them and be thrilled to have a forever home.



Maxx is a dog who started out at PAWS afraid, confused, and detached. However, once we got him into a foster home where he could rule a backyard, he was a completely different dog! He loves being outdoors and will require a home with a fenced in yard, however he does enjoy spending time with his family indoors now as well. Ideally, we would love to adopt Maxx out directly from his foster home so he can avoid coming back to the shelter. If you are interested in meeting Maxx, please call PAWS to set up a meeting time.
