Handipets Pets In Need

DECATUR,GA+ Blind abused St. Bernard owner in jail

Posted in Pets In Need by handipets on January 23, 2008

The St. Bernard is a wonderful,
lumbering “big baby” who has a really heart-wrenching story. She was
abused by her owner, who has been arrested and the dog has been signed
over to Animal Control. To top it off, she is BLIND (or has very, very
limited sight). But, she walks well on a leash and she is very sweet and
does not seem to very skittish at all. Because she is blind, obviously,
she would need more special care than a dog with complete sight, but
blind dogs manage very well (just don’t move the furniture around too
often!) We were lucky that it snowed last weekend when we took her
picture, since she looks so much more in her “element”.



Dekalb County Animal Services

Our Adoptable Pet List


Who We Are

DeKalb Animals Services and Enforcement is a section
of the DeKalb County Police Department, Special Operations Division. As
such, we not only provide services to the public, but also provide
support services to local law enforcement. We impound large numbers of
animals from drug busts, warrant services, and evictions as well as
strays, Dangerous/Potentially Dangerous cases, cruelty complaints, and
Abandonments. Many animals are on hold for law enforcement cases through
local and state courts.

Adopting a friend

Adoption fees
Female dog – $92.00 Male dog
– $87.00
Female cat – $82.00 Male cat – $62.00

animals receive complete vaccinations and are altered. Dogs receive
heartworm testing. Once adopted, animals are transported to our
veterinarians for vaccination, altering, and testing. However, once
services are rendered, there are no refunds. If testing is positive it
will be up to the new owner to correct any medical issues that would
have been screened out in our adoption program. Once all medical work is
completed, the new owner can pick the animal up either from us or the
vet usually the next day.

Rescue groups must have a completed
application and a current Georgia Department of Agriculture Certificate
on file in order to rescue from our facility.
