August HOPE Hearts at the Effingham County Animal Shelter.


August is here and Fall is right around the corner. We have 5 dogs and 3 cats that have been selected for the August HOPE Hearts. HOPE will provide the adopter to these pets a FREE basic spay or neuter at our preferred veterinarian. We cover all expenses with the basic spay or neuter. We do not cover any vaccinations, pain meds to go home with, nail trims, baths, or any other procedure that is not associated with the basic spay or neuter. This is a great savings to the adopter and it is our way of saying Thank You for saving a life and creating a home for them.  Dog adoptions are $50 and Cat adoptions are $40. Each include one vaccination and a rabies shot.

These babies are at the Effingham County Animal Shelter in Springfield, GA. If interested in one please call the shelter at 912-754-2109.

JULY HOPE Hearts!!!!!!!!! Check out the July Babies!!!!!


July is here and we need to announce who has a HOPE Heart on them for the month of July. Check out the fur-babies.

Our list was for 4 dogs and 3 cats this month to receive a FREE basic spay or neuter for the month of July. We had a HOPE Heart on Hudson but he just got adopted this morning so no need to post him on here. Love happy endings like that. Adoption fees for dogs are $50 which includes a rabies and 5-way shot before leaving the facility. Cat adoptions are $40 which includes a rabies and 5-way shot before leaving the facility. If adopted on Mon,Tue, Wed the pet must stay at the shelter until Thursday afternoon to where the vet of record can administer the shots. If adopted on Thur or Fri, the pet must stay until Monday afternoon to where the vet of record can administer the shots. This is a new policy to make sure all animals are vaccinated before leaving the facility once adopted.

Remember when adopting one of the HOPE Heart dogs you must contact HOPE first and we will get the OK to the preferred veterinarian’s office so you can set it up. If we DO NOT give the OK, you DO NOT get a FREE spay or neuter. If you go to your own veterinarian, we will NOT pay for the spay or neuter either. It must be at our preferred veterinarian.

Here we are already rolling into June and we need to announce who has a HOPE Heart on them for the month of June. Check out the fur-babies.

Our list was for 5 dogs and 2 cats this month to receive a FREE basic spay or neuter for the month of June. Well Johnny 5 a hound and also Skittles a dachshund were on the list but were both adopted before we got all the pictures to get everyone posted. That is such great news.

Cat adoptions are $40 which includes a rabies and 5-way shot before leaving the facility.

Remember when adopting one of the HOPE Heart dogs you must contact HOPE first and we will get the OK to the preferred veterinarian’s office so you can set it up. If we do not give the OK, you do not get a FREE spay or neuter. If you go to your own veterinarian, we will not pay for the spay or neuter either. It must be at our preferred veterinarian.

PATCH – A male Pit mix that is white with brown spots. This poor guy was a stray and neighbors could not find a good home for him. They are hoping that he will be able to find a wonderful home. He came in with Moxie.

WHISKERS – Female cat that is grey and white and black. She was turned in by a citizen that found her and did not want anything to happen to her. She is very lovable and again a large cat. She was very clean for a white cat so we believe she may have been an inside cat as well.

MAY Hope Hearts – Full Spay/Neuter month


HOPE has selected 3 shelter animals at the Effingham County Animal Shelter in Springfield, GA. We selected two dogs and one cat to receive a FREE basic spay or neuter upon adoption at one of our approved veterinarians.  Once adopted the adopter will be provided with HOPE paperwork within their adoption packet from the shelter. It will explain everything we cover and the few things we do not, how to reach us, and what they need to do.

Its real simple – Adopt, call us, we get with the veterinarian and approve the free basic spay or neuter, we call you back and the adopter calls the veterinarian to set the appt up for their convenience within the 30 days as required by law. Nothing to it and the adopter gets a FREE basic spay or neuter. Whats not to love about that. That is potentially up to a $90 savings.

Here are the babies that received the May HOPE Hearts:

Chesney received the HOPE heart for a FREE basic neuter.

Jangles, Bunker and Chopper… Just who are they?


Meet just a few of the wonderful dogs the Effingham County Animal Shelter in Springfield, GA has to offer. I know it’s a shelter, what really could they have to offer that is good? Right? That’s what most people think when they start looking for a dog or cat. But the shelter gets to know each dog and cat and this can aid in helping you get the right one for you, not a biased opinion from the owner that is trying to get rid of it or just sell it.

JanglesMeet Jangles. Jangles is a Terrier mix. Poor Jangles was found one morning after being dropped of in the outside drop pens. But after being at the shelter for a little while it is apparent he is very good with other dogs, loves to play with them and adores being around people. He has some leash manners and adjusts very well to new surroundings. He really is a great little dog and would work great for a smaller apartment or smaller home environment. Just look at that face, how could you not want to come by the shelter and meet him? Jangles also has a HALF-HOPE heart on him for the month of April. His adoption is $45 which includes his rabies shot and his neuter through HOPE would cost $35.

 

bunkerMeet Bunker. Wow can’t say enough good things about Bunker. He was also an owner turn-in. They had financial reasons to do what they did but they also “Paid it Forward” by paying for his adoption fee. They truly want their Bunker to get into a great home. Bunker is a black Boykin Spaniel. All his vet records are with him as all vet visits were done at the Effingham Animal Hospital. He loves to ride in cars, has great leash manners, knows commands, and very well behaved. He just needs a new home to love him and be able to take good care of him. Bunker is really a ready-made dog just waiting to go home! His adoption is FREE.

 

Chopper (2)Meet Chopper. He is a beautiful white with brown spots Am. Bulldog mix. Chopper was an owner turn-in as they just could not keep him anymore. Not that they didn’t want him but just thought it would be best for their situation that he be placed into a better home. He is neutered and was vaccinated. His vaccinations were done in Jacksonville, FL so the shelter could not confirm. Chopper is housebroken as well. He does not get along with other dogs so Chopper would need a home without other dogs. They are not sure about cats, but a safe bet to just keep him as the only pet. His adoption is $45 which includes rabies shot since his vaccinations could not be verified.

If interested or have any additional questions in any of these three dogs please contact Bill, the Adoption Coordinator, at the Effingham Co Animal Shelter at 912-754-2109. Please go by the shelter as it is off Hwy 119 and Hwy 21 behind the Effingham Co Prison and check out these three dogs or any of the other animals they have up there. They are all on limited time as the shelter fills up quickly with all the strays and drop offs they get daily.

Please spay and neuter your pets. It helps with the over-population in the county!

Thank you from all of us at HOPE
