Winder, GA: Cat to be Put Down on 8/3/10

2010-07-223 Lily - Domestic Medium Hair-White Mix

Lily is a sweet girl. According to her owner, she is deaf. Her owner was an elderly woman who had to move in with other family members and could not take Lily with her. She is around 3 years old. LAST DAY 08/03/10 Please call before 5:00pm.

There is pull help/pick up from the shelter as well as transport help to the eastern Atlanta and east I-20 area available. Please contact Sara Williams at

If you can adopt or rescue, here's the contact info:




Sponsors are welcome for any of the animals. Please email and we will add any sponsorships to the pleas. Sponsorships are meant to be 'pledges' only to be given directly to the approved rescue who pulls the animal

Barrow County is very rescue friendly. Free for GA licensed rescues; out-of-state rescues, please contact the shelter for details. The adoption process does not have to be completed in person. Complete vetting and boarding are available at Four Paws Animal Hospital. Specific adoption Information and hours are below.
**Please refer to ID/Run numbers when inquiring about specific animals if available

HOW URGENTLY IN NEED ARE THE ANIMALS? Call AND e-mail BEFORE 5:00 p.m. on Tuesdays. See contact information above. Generally, animals are subject to lethal injection after five (5) days of impoundment. Injections typically occur on Wednesdays, but because the shelter becomes SO FULL at times, they may occur more frequently. Contact NOW!

CATS: The adoption fee for any cat is $100. The fee includes: spay or neuter, physical exam, fecal exam, deworming, rabies vaccine, distemper vaccine, and microchip. For licensed Georgia rescues there is no charge to pull a cat, but no veterinary services come with the cat. Out of state rescues, please contact us for details.

*LAST DAY means the date the cat is scheduled for euthanasia. If we have a cat posted whose last day has passed, that cat should be considered extremely urgent. Please call about those cats immediately as they may be subject to euthanasia at any time. We remove postings on available cats when they leave the building or their adoption has been completed. If you are a rescuer who has spoken for a cat or a person with an adoption application on a cat, do not take offense. We have had rescues and adoptions fall through in the past and we work hard to make sure no cat falls through the cracks.

Wednesdays, Saturdays, and Sundays – CLOSED to the public (but they can still correspond with people on Wednesdays); other week days – OPEN 8-5. Call ahead before coming out around holidays.

The shelter is always in need of kitty litter and other items (towels, cardboard boxes that hold a case of drinks, chewy dog treats, etc.!!! PLEASE DONATE IF YOU CAN!!!
