Terrific Tootsie

Terrific Tootsie

Considering her rough background, Tootsie is amazingly forgiving. Exiled to the outdoors her entire life, kept only to produce litter after litter of puppies, Tootsie came into Macon Animal Control some time ago.

The over-breeding affected her health, but the shelter and volunteers saw to it that Tootsie received the care she needed.

Fully recovered, now, Tootsie is spayed, has all her shots and is on heartworm prevention.

Tootsie loves people in spite of the way she lived before coming to the shelter. She spent some time at Endless Love Pet Palace, and proved to be playful and energetic.

Can't Adopt? You Can Still Help Homeless Animals

Can't Adopt? You Can Still Help Homeless Animals

Homeless pets -- lost, abandoned or unwanted dogs and cats that wind up at area Animal Control shelters or with rescue groups -- are an ongoing problem in the Macon area. Thousands of pets become homeless yearly, and many of these are euthanized.

If you can't adopt or foster a dog or cat, you can still help these animals get a second chance at a loving home.

Donate essentials. Macon, Monroe County and other area animal control shelters accept donations of dog food. Often, the shelter shares the food with rescue groups, but the shelter sometimes runs short when there is an influx of animals.

Monroe County Animal Control only handles dogs, but other shelters can use both cat and dog food, plus cat litter. All of the shelters regularly need puppy pads.

Toys and treats are also welcomed.

Donors Helping Pay for Low-Cost Spay/Neuter Surgeries

Donors Helping Pay for Low-Cost Spay/Neuter Surgeries

Two major donors have come forward to help pay the $20 per pet fee for spay/neuter surgery at the mobile vet clinic coming to GEICO in February.

Thanks to a $300 donation from Heart of Georgia Humane Society and a $200 donation from Anna Roberts and Rivoli Realty, plus help from other donors, the fee for 37 of the spay/neuter surgeries are covered.

Cost for the surgery, plus a microchip and rabies shot, is only $20 per pet. The clinic is designed to help senior citizens and low-income residents get their pets "fixed" to stop unwanted litters of puppies and kittens from flooding Macon Animal Control constantly. Many of these unwanted babies die because no homes can be found in time to save them.
