ADOPTABLE ANIMALS
The following are some of the animals available for adoption at Walton County Animal Control.  

Note on "Mandatory Hold" dates:  as soon as an animal's hold date expires, it is available for adoption, rescue, and sadly, for euthanasia. Therefore, it is crucial that animals be adopted or rescued as close to the hold expiration date as possible. We accept applications and rescues inquires during the hold period. The hold end date does not necessarily mean the animal will be put to sleep on that date, but there is no guarantee the animal will be held longer once the hold expires.

Friends of WCAC on Facebook is run by volunteers who watch waltonpets.net and make updates as they can. The shelter does not monitor the postings there, so always email the shelter directly for inquiries and applications.  Friends of WCAC is run by volunteers and Walton County does not have control over the postings

"HARLEY"

HOLD EXPIRED, AVAILABLE NOW!

NO PENDING APPLICATIONS OR RESCUE INQUIRIES!

ALREADY NEUTERED & MICROCHIPPED!

Breed:  Hound/Lab mix 

ID#: 2015 0223 (A9)

HelpingLostPets.com ID#: 390541

Sex: male, neutered

Age: approx. 3 years

Weight: approx. 50-60 lbs

Meds: --

Note: "Harley" is a great dog.  He is a quiet and docile boy and always softly wagging his tail, and rolls over when you talk sweet to him!  He was turned in as stray on 2/24/15 by a citizen who said they found him on HD Atha Rd. He has a microchip that traces to Barrow Co Animal Control. When we contacted the original adopter, they said they gave him away a while ago and didn't have information for his current owner. Since no one has come forward, it looks like he'll be needing a new home. When meeting other dogs "Harley" did a good job. He took a more submissive role with dominant dogs, not wanting to have any trouble. He did a lot of sniffing and greeting and no aggression or growling was seen.  See his health/temperament evaluation. We will have his heartworm test results posted soon. 

Mandatory hold: EXPIRED 2/27/15 

3/2/15: NO PENDING APPLICATIONS; NO RESCUE INQUIRIES

NO PENDING APPLICATIONS OR RESCUE INQUIRIES!

HEARTWORM NEGATIVE! DEWORMED! SITS ON COMMAND! HOUSEBROKEN!

Breed:  Lab/German Shorthaired Pointer mix 

ID#: 2015 0225 (A7)

HelpingLostPets.com ID#: N/A

Sex: female, not spayed

Age: approx. 11 months

Weight: approx. 50 lbs

Meds: 3/2/15 heartworm negative, pyrantal deworm

Note: "Dixie" is a very nice girl.  She sits on command, is great on the leash, and is housebroken. She was surrendered by her owner on 3/2/15 because she is pregnant and about to have puppies. She got pregnant from the neighbor's dog and the owner didn't have the money to get her spayed or to let her have pups. Her owner said since she has gotten further along in her pregnancy, she has not been able to hold it as long in the house, and would rather not deal with the other dogs and kids in the house (which is to be expected).  We've got in her a quiet quarantine area of the shelter hoping a rescue will come quickly. See her owner info card. Because she is pregnant and quite far along, she available to licensed rescues only.  No adoptions please.
