Adopt-A-Pet: Alpha Dog and Hazel

The Habersham County Animal Shelter is experiencing one of its most heartbreaking seasons, the surrenders of pets that comes before the holidays. As the shelter starts to fill up with these surrenders, now is the perfect time to consider adding a new member to your family to make special winter memories with.

No tree is complete without a cat asleep under it, and no snow day is just right without a dog having the best day ever alongside you.

Meet Alpha Dog

Meet Alpha Dog, a sweet adult male cat looking for his fur-ever home.

Alpha Dog was one of over 150 cats rescued from a hoarding case in Clarkesville, and has grown stronger and happier ever since the Habersham County Animal Shelter took him in.

“I was skin and bones, and I wasn’t feeling well at all when I came to the shelter,” he says. “Now that I’ve been somewhere safe for a few months, I’m starting to put on weight and feel more comfortable meeting new people.”

Since he came to the shelter, Alpha Dog has gone from a rugged-looking street cat to a fluffy, charming cat looking for a loving family to call his.

“I’m finally getting healthy,” he says. “Now, I’m ready to find my family.”

Meet Hazel

Meet Hazel, an adult female terrier pit mix with the cutest grumpy face.

Hazel might look grumpy, but she’s friendly as can be with both humans and other dogs. She likes to explore outside and play with her friend Pogo, but more than anything would love to be part of a family.

“I’d describe myself as an old soul,” Hazel says. “I appreciate the little things, sunshine, new smells, pats on the head— all those parts of the day that make life special.”

Hazel has been at the shelter since early October and would like to have a home of her own for the holidays.

“Relaxing with my human or warming my belly by a fire sounds like the perfect way to spend a winter day,” she says. “I hope I spend this Christmas with people who love me, not alone at the shelter.”
