Adopt → Forget-Me-Nots

Occasionally there are animals in our care who wait longer than most for a new home. Despite being amazing pets, they are overlooked by potential adopters for one reason or another. Once you meet them, you’ll understand just why we feel they are so special!

If you wish to meet any of our long-term residents, please visit us 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



Corey Grant Has Nothing On Me

He may not have long hair as the original Sampson, but he is just as handsome. Sampson could be part German Shepherd or Blue Heeler. No one knows for sure.

But whatever his breed(s), he is a devilishly handsome chap with a charming and playful personality—that is, once you get on his right side.

Sampson picks his humans carefully, allowing only a few in his esteemed inner circle. We can’t exactly pinpoint what makes you “in” or “out” in his world. Gender and hats may play a role, but not consistently. Surely, anyone worthy who truly wants to be “in” would eventually be granted admittance.

He may think it’s his job to protect his human from other people, but he seems to love other dogs. We think Sampson would do very well in a home with a mature, calm and confident dog.

This dog is a complex creature, and as such he needs a savvy and patient adopter who would welcome the challenge and the accomplishment, dignity and satisfaction that come from overcoming difficulties. If you rescue Sampson, he will rescue you right back.



I Am What I Am

Tiny is a Cane Corso and is absolutely beautiful. Tiny is full of personality, and loves blankets, soft toys, scarves, and purses. If you come into Tiny’s room with a scarf, you likely won’t leave with it! Despite her size, Tiny is very gentle and sweet, although she can be stubborn on a leash. Tiny loves car rides, and tries to get into any car that’s available. Maybe she’s hoping for them to take her to her forever home?

Let’s be real. Why is an awesome dog like Tiny at Paws Humane? Well, the reason is that Tiny has Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency (EPI). This means that she can’t properly digest her food, and that she will need medical care for the rest of her life. The medicine Tiny needs to keep her alive will cost approximately $46 per week, or $2,500.00 per year. With the medicine, Tiny will be as happy as any other dog. Without it? Tiny will be very, very sick.

We know Tiny’s family has to be extra-special to take on Tiny’s medical care. What they will get in return will pay them back a million times over. So, please share and help our Tiny-girl find her family. She would be so grateful that she may even let you hold her blanket. Don’t do it…it’s slobbery!
