Let’s Help Felicity Find a Home! Dog Adoption of the Day #AdoptDon’tShop
Felicity has been sharing a kennel with three other dogs around her same size because there is just not enough room for all the dogs currently there. She needs a home so bad!
If you’re not going to have a pet be indoors with you the majority of the time, give it lots of love, prepared to pay vet bills in an emergency and make a life time commitment then a pet is not for you. This is something we are passionate about and really want to get the message across to adopt not shop and that it’s a lifetime commitment of love!
Information from Felicity’s Adoption Post
Felicity is around 8 years old and arrived at the shelter in early November. Nearly 60 days (and counting) is a LONG, LONG time to spend in an overcrowded shelter. These circumstances are not Felicity’s fault nor is it the shelter’s fault, it’s a problem that can only be solved by the community’s choices.
Last week we took a visit to Felicity’s shelter. We stepped inside the kennel that Felicity has been sharing with three other dogs. The first thing we noticed was how the other dogs were trying to (naturally) escape and stood right by the entrance to the kennel door begging for freedom. But it was Felicity who was more interested in human attention and affection and rubs. Felicity calmly walked over and cozied up to the humans. And that’s really all she wants right now! A home and a human.
Instead, Felicity is growing increasingly more frustrated and stressed in the shelter. And resulting scuffles are happening. As it would with any humans sharing a small space for an extended period of time. She has been OK with other dogs who mind their own business, but she does not care for dogs in her face. Felicity would do great as an only pet OR, at this point, going to a home with another calm dog who can give her space. Especially for the first several weeks while she needs time to decompress. A slow introduction would benefit all.
Fulton County Animal Services wrote, “Don”t let the slight gray around the muzzle fool you. This sweetheart has a lot of pep in her step. She enjoys other dogs and is quite playful and active when outside with her kennel mates. [Mind you, outdoors with space is the key here. This is very different from being cooped up in a small kennel!]
Felicity is a mild mannered and calm girl that would be a great low key companion. The shelter is no place for a senior girl. Please come visit with her and share her photo with your friends. We want to get her out!”
