A Promise to Parker

parker coll

When the family was evicted from the house, they packed up what was important. Clothes, furniture, books, dishes and whatever else they could cram in the car were taken away to their new home. But not Parker. This sweet boy and his sibling were left behind with the trash, expected to fend for themselves. No food, no water, and no shelter. Only six months old and already abandoned by humans. The two dogs eventually landed in a crowded shelter with no guarantee of life beyond the three-day hold period. His brother was finally adopted, but no one saw the promise of love in Parker’s eyes. Their loss. Fortunately someone offered to foster Parker, so this amazing boy has become our latest WAG rescue dog. Foster homes…

Featured Dog

holly

Holly is a great girl, but has so far gone unnoticed. Is it the white hairs around her muzzle that give her that “mature” look? Or is it because she’s not as flashy as other dogs? Not sure, but we see the magic behind the photos. Holly is a happy girl, about 45 lbs and 6+ years old. She’s also an awesome companion. She’s being fostered on a farm and enjoys following us while we do chores, usually riding in the golf cart or running behind. Holly loves going for rides in the car and would be happy to spend the day with you. She’s housetrained and crate-trained, but wouldn’t mind sleeping in your bed! Holly has good manners and does well in the house….

Puppy Prevention Success

prevent1

It’s been a busy year for the Puppy Prevention Program. A total of 108 puppies enrolled in the program since January. All have been spayed/neutered and gone onto new homes. Here are just a few of the moms who’ve been spayed, retired from puppy-rearing and will spend the rest of their lives being nothing more than loving family pets. Thanks to their caring owners for allowing WAG to help their moms and babies!

Community Support

We’d like to thank the Walton County Foundation for once again supporting Walton Animal Guild’s Spay Neuter Assistance Program. WAG received a grant in the amount of $2,500 toward our 2015 SNAP programs, which will go a long way toward helping more low-income pet owners in the community. We’re very grateful for the Foundation’s continuing confidence in our organization.

Honoring Scooter

scooter10

The sudden unexpected death of a pet is a heartbreak for any animal lover. When Pierre and Judy Kimball recently lost their beloved dog, Scooter, they were understandably devastated. Scooter was a frightened dog rescued from Floyd County that the Kimball’s took into their home to foster. He blossomed and soon became what the rescue community calls a “foster failure”. They loved him too much to let him go anywhere else. Scooter enjoyed life as one of their much loved pets and burrowed his way into their hearts. Sadly, the day after Christmas Scooter escaped from the fence of a home the Kimball’s were visiting. Lost in an unfamiliar area, Scooter couldn’t find his way back. He was later found dead in the roadway after…

Charlie’s new world

Charlie

Meet Charlie! This skinny boy spent several weeks living in a ditch next to Walnut Grove High School, huddled in the weeds during the recent rain and cold temperatures. He was very skittish and wouldn’t let anyone come near him. But fortunately a special animal lover decided to spend time and hot dogs to lure him into their car and save him from a bleak existence of running and hiding. Now Charlie is living a WAG dog life, hanging out with other foster dogs and learning to enjoy regular meals, dog snacks, afternoon walks and chasing the golf cart. Once we got past his fear, he is a sweet, loving boy. About 9 months old and only 49 lbs right now, he needs to gain…

Sad faces.

Every holiday season, between the joy of spending time with family and friends, are the same television scenes: slickly produced commercials from national humane organizations featuring pitiful, sad faces of animals needing help. Dozens of these commercial flash across the screen each day.<br /><div><br /></div><div>Hundreds of those sad faces are right here in Walton County. Dogs abandoned on dirt roads. Boxes of kittens dumped at the shelter. Skinny, mange-infested puppies. None of these needy animals will appear on television, but all need our help. </div><div><br /></div><div>Walton Animal Guild has worked behind the scenes for years to make a difference in our community.

Mom’s retired!

Here are a few of the mother dogs that we’ve “retired” from the breeding game in 2014. As moms of the puppies enrolled in our puppy prevention program, WAG provided each with a free spay surgery. These furry ladies are now enjoying a puppy-free life with their owners, while their babies are happy and loved in their new homes. We call that a win-win!<br /><br /><div class=”separator” style=”clear: both; text-align: center;”><a href=”http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-4S1Z3b78qDI/VJj0hjbvyXI/AAAAAAAABv0/a0rdK5adZME/s1600/Betsy.JPG” imageanchor=”1″ style=”margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;”><img border=”0″ src=”http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-4S1Z3b78qDI/VJj0hjbvyXI/AAAAAAAABv0/a0rdK5adZME/s1600/Betsy.JPG” height=”251″ width=”320″ /></a></div><br /><div class=”separator” style=”clear: both; text-align: center;”><a href=”http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-3qlyAGoB1aM/VJj0kFUlNXI/AAAAAAAABv8/FaxhifI_erY/s1600/Dixie.jpg” imageanchor=”1″ style=”margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;”><img border=”0″ src=”http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-3qlyAGoB1aM/VJj0kFUlNXI/AAAAAAAABv8/FaxhifI_erY/s1600/Dixie.jpg” height=”276″ width=”320″ /></a></div><br /><div class=”separator” style=”clear: both; text-align: center;”></div><br /><div class=”separator” style=”clear: both; text-align: center;”><a href=”http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-e8ENkF2sQKI/VJj0-EwvyjI/AAAAAAAABwM/DJcJjSBNgDI/s1600/Furgy.jpg” imageanchor=”1″ style=”margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;”><img border=”0″ src=”http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-e8ENkF2sQKI/VJj0-EwvyjI/AAAAAAAABwM/DJcJjSBNgDI/s1600/Furgy.jpg” height=”240″ width=”320″ /></a></div><br /><div class=”separator” style=”clear:…
