Brothers of the Heart

Brothers of the Heart

Best friends forever. Bonded. Soulmates.

Those are some of the ways Blackie and Sammy are described by those who have met them down at the Bibb-Macon animal control facility at 1010 Eleventh Street in Macon.

Turned in by their owners, who could no longer keep them, these young dogs huddle together in their kennel, confused and unsure about why they are there and what will happen to them.

Sammy is a full-blooded Labrador retriever with the typical happy-go-lucky, "let's play" demeanor when he's taken out of the kennel. Blackie is a lab mix and a little more reserved -- a little shy, maybe, or a little more afraid of what the future may hold. He stays as close to Sammy as he can, for reassurance, to be near a familiar loved one.

Pet Pardon at the Pound Ends Tuesday; Adopters and Fosters Needed

Pet Pardon at the Pound Ends Tuesday; Adopters and Fosters Needed

On January 9, the Macon-Bibb animal control facility entered its third Pet Pardon, pledging not to put down any animals through January 22.

Engineered once again by Shane Smith of Paws for Hope and Faith, the pardon was signed by director Sarah Tenon, and this pardon includes a unique event within the event: an off-site adoption period Saturday.

While the facility is open on Saturdays, except for holidays, for on-site adoptions, this is the first time animals have been allowed to leave the confines of the shelter for broader exposure to the public.

Sailor is Love in a Pretty Package!

Sailor is Love in a Pretty Package!

Sailor is a beautiful, energetic, 20 lb. 3 to 4 year old spayed female pup that loves kids and other dogs.  She is potty trained and crate-trained.  She has recently been trained to sit for her food, but that needs to be reinforced as it is a new routine and she is very young.  She is the perfect age for learning new things.  Sailor loves to be around people and is curious about all things.  A secure, fenced in backyard is a wonderful thing for her, she loves to play and run around in it.  She will play well by herself with toys for a good amount of time, but she is a Velcro dog.  She will follow you everywhere.  At night, because of the allergies, we open the door to her crate and tell her to go in, shut the door, and say goodnight.  The crate is next to the bed and she sleeps well all night in it even though our other dog sleeps in our bed.
