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 some 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




This is Tiny, our larger-than-life orphan, with an equally large personality. Tiny is a four-year-old Cane Corso and is absolutely beautiful. She does have some definite preferences when it comes to things she enjoys. Tiny loves blankets, soft toys, scarves, and purses. She is a total girly girl. Despite her size, Tiny is very gentle and sweet, although she can be stubborn on a leash. Some may wander why an awesome dog like Tiny is still at PAWS Humane. Well, the reason is that Tiny has Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency (EPI). This means she can’t properly digest her food, and she will need medicine for the rest of her life. Unfortunately, the medicine is costly, approximately $46 per week. With the  medicine, Tiny will be as happy as any other dog. Tiny’s future family will have to take on her medical care. What they will get in return will pay them back a million times over.


Perdita is a one-year-old Dalmatian mix. She’s a sweet girl that was found as a stray by Animal Control. Luckily, she was brought to PAWS for a chance to find a home. At one point, she was adopted by a welcoming family; however, she was returned because she does not get along with their cat. Although Perdita is a loving girl, she requires a proper introduction with other dogs to ensure they become best friends. Perdita likes to be in the spotlight, so the more time you spend focusing on her, the better she will be. She loves to play catch and spend one-on-one time with her owners. She loves attention and is always happy and energetic! If you enjoy being outdoors, Perdita will hike with you and enjoy the freedom of running along outdoor pathways with her new owner. According to her last owners, she did not make a bathroom mistake in the house while in their care. She has been spayed, microchipped and vaccinated. We would love for Perdita to find her new home very soon!



Set Fritos Free! Fritos is a loving almost four-year-old Retriever mix who has been at the shelter far too long. We’ve learned a lot about Fritos in her more than 450 day stay at PAWS Humane. Here’s the truth about our sweet girl. She loves all toys, especially tennis balls. She even enjoys playing catch. Fritos will retrieve the ball, bring it back to you, play with it for a second, and then drop it for you to throw again. This is one of her favorite hobbies. Also, you might say Fri Fri (as we occasionally give our dogs nicknames) is a water dog. She had a blast during summer time splashing and bobbing for treats in her baby pool. We have noticed that Fritos is much more comfortable around people in her inner circle, so she will need continuous training to warm her up to strangers. If you are thinking about adopting a dog, please stop by and meet this cute, slobbery, sweet Brindle baby.

Mama Cass

Mama Cass is our amazing three legged wonder dog! She’s almost 2 years old and she’s as sweet as cotton candy! She came to PAWS Humane with a broken leg; unfortunately, many of the areas on her leg were healing incorrectly. Therefore, the broken leg had to be removed. Despite missing a leg, there’s no game that Mama Cass won’t participate in! Whether it’s chewing on a bone, chasing a toy, etc., Mama Cass doesn’t let her past medical history keep her down. She still loves to play and run around outside. She also loves when people bring her treats, toys, and balls. Mama Cass enjoys her life at PAWS, but she is looking for a place to call home. The shelter life can be exhausting for such an energetic girl! If you enjoy giving away tasty treats, come on by and meet Mama Cass! She’s a great companion if you love playing outdoors! Her favorite outdoor game is “catch”. Overall, Mama Cass would be a perfect fit for your family. She has been spayed, microchipped, and vaccinated.
