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. Our small budget doesn’t allow for flashy commercials, but our financial needs are just as important.</div><div><br /></div><div>WAG is an all-volunteer organization with no paid…

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:…

Giving shelter.

Cold weather is coming. When temperatures drop, there are plenty of animals who need the warmth of a doghouse to escape the elements.<br /><br />We recently took several bales of hay, shavings and a plywood doghouse to Walton Co. Animal Control to be distributed to families in need. Each bale of hay provides bedding for approximately 5 doghouses. The colorful doghouse was built as a student project by Madison D and will keep some grateful dog very cozy.<br /><br /><div class=”separator” style=”clear: both; text-align: center;”><a href=”http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-ifvqAw-DTxc/VJpYgydZXoI/AAAAAAAABxA/IGqK9dEpJyU/s1600/doghouse%2BMadison.jpg” imageanchor=”1″ style=”margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;”><img border=”0″ src=”http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-ifvqAw-DTxc/VJpYgydZXoI/AAAAAAAABxA/IGqK9dEpJyU/s1600/doghouse%2BMadison.jpg” height=”320″ width=”239″ /></a></div><br />WAG will provide additional donated/purchased doghouses to families by referral from Walton Animal Control officers through the Huts for Mutts program.

Zoe, Companion Dog Extraordinaire

Congratulations to one of our WAG alumni dogs, Zoe (in the green costume). This brindle Plotthound mix recently received her certification as a licensed Emotional Support Animal! Zoe was adopted by the Lincoln family and has made herself a valuable companion to their daughter Thia. This certification will allow Zoe to accompany Thia lots of different places and help enrich both of their lives in the years to come.<br /><br />Way to go, Zoe – we’re very proud of you!<br /><br /><br /><div class=”separator” style=”clear: both; text-align: center;”><a href=”http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-sziDh8QKwME/VFxSVyaYxkI/AAAAAAAABuY/J3Jjucs7dzo/s1600/Zoey.jpg” imageanchor=”1″ style=”margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;”><img border=”0″ src=”http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-sziDh8QKwME/VFxSVyaYxkI/AAAAAAAABuY/J3Jjucs7dzo/s1600/Zoey.jpg” height=”363″ width=”400″ /></a></div><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><div class=”separator” style=”clear: both; text-align: center;”><a href=”http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-Jfv7k8DPBt8/VFxSfHyijyI/AAAAAAAABug/i3SAbc-Kq2g/s1600/Zoey2.jpg” imageanchor=”1″ style=”margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;”><img border=”0″ src=”http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-Jfv7k8DPBt8/VFxSfHyijyI/AAAAAAAABug/i3SAbc-Kq2g/s1600/Zoey2.jpg” height=”180″ width=”320″ /></a></div>

A second chance for Jake

Wow, take a look at this handsome blue-eyed hunk of doggy love! We rescued Jake (fka Ranger) from the Walton Co. shelter this week when no one else stepped up for him. He’s a good looking boy, but unfortunately tested positive for heartworms. So after he’s neutered and vaccinated he’ll spend the next 60 days with us undergoing heartworm treatment.<br /><div><br /></div><div>The treatment starts with thirty days of daily prescription medication. At the end of the thirty days he’ll get a intramuscular injection in his back to kill the heartworms. After another thirty days pass he’ll get two more injections within a 24 hour period. It’s painful for Jake- no doubt about it – but also the quickest way to kill the dangerous heartworms and…

Sheltie/something mix. Banjo recently completed heartworm treatment and is ready for his new home. He’s an awesome dog – cratetrained and housetrained, gets along with other animals. But Banjo is a people dog – he’ll choose humans over canines any day! When all my other foster dogs are off playing with each other, Banjo always sticks near us. He makes a great companion while working in the yard or around the house. Banjo is a sensitive boy, not sure he’d be comfortable in a home with very small children. But he’s a wonderful dog and someone will be very lucky to…
