News from the Animal Shelter

Are you wanting a cat or dog but just not sure???? If so, think about fostering from our shelter. When you foster you don’t cover medical costs. The shelter will cover the medical and some other costs too. Several of our cats are nervous in the shelter with 18 other cats around them. We know they would be great in a home. Please give us a call or text to meet the cats and talk about fostering or adopting. We need homes for these babies.  We don’t have a dog right now (that could change in a flash) but the county shelter and Big Canoe Animal Rescue both have lots of wonderful dogs.

Call or text 678-414-1047 to visit Our Bent Tree Animal Shelter.
