Featured dog: Honey: Adopted!!!
Honey is a sweet brindle hound/terrier mix that came to ORHS in May 2018. She was pregnant at the time and has since had her litter of 7 babies. She was a great mama to her pups and is now ready to be adopted. She is very sweet and loves to receive attention from the staff at ORHS. She likes to go on walks and play with her toys. She is especially fond of her squeaky toy duck that she will fetch and roll around with it while hanging out of her mouth. Her adorable under-bite makes her irresistible to all the staff at ORHS and we are hoping someone else will find it irresistible as well.
Featured Cat: Tweed
This sweet little kitty was brought to us from a local middle school after being found with one of her back paws strangulated by a string or long carpet fiber. The paw was extremely swollen and misshapen; it seemed almost a sure thing that Tweed would require amputation. Our wonderful volunteers immediately started following the prescribed medical plan: Tweed’s swollen foot received hours and hours of hydrotherapy and massage, along with oral antibiotics. Little by little the size of her paw reduced...then a little bit of fur started growing on the bare skin...and the wound from the carpet fiber healed. Thanks to this outstanding care, Tweed will not require amputation of her injured foot! This adorable tuxedo is very sweet and social. She loves to play with other kittens and, they way this girl runs, you would never know she has been through such an ordeal. Tweed will make a great companion and an exceptional addition to any family.
Im-PAw-Tant NOte from whiskey Bradley
Loyal canine companion of Drs. David and Patti Bradley, owners of Lake Oconee Dentistry. My friends at the Oconee Regional Human Society asked me to write to you because Lake Oconee Dentistry is doing something REALLY GREAT this month and you need to know about it!
July 31st is National Mutt Day, or as I like to call it, “National Mixed Breed” Day. This special day was created back in 2005 by animal welfare advocate Colleen Paige to bring awareness to the plight of mixed breed dogs. You see approximately 80% of dogs in shelters are mixed breeds. National Mutt Day is all about embracing, celebrating, and saving mixed breed dogs.
I, myself, am a mixed breed dog, rescued by the Bradleys six years ago. And so is my sister, Sadie! Not to brag, but mixed breed dogs tend to be healthier, better behaved, and live longer!
When it comes to saving mixed breed dogs and find them fur-ever homes, no group does a better job than the Oconee Regional Humane Society. ORHS places hundred of dogs and cats a year. This noble mission would be im-paws-ible to achieve without a small army of volunteers and financial assistance. So, in honor of National Mutt Day, and mixed breed dogs everywhere, Lake Oconee Dentistry is doing something to help the kind folks at ORHS:
Lake Oconee Dentistry is offering FREE x-rays with any $10 (or more) donation to the Oconee Regional Humane Society. That’s a value of up to $142 depending on the number of x-rays needed. Simply call Lake Oconee Dentistry at (706) 468-3233 by August 10 to schedule an appointment. It can be for a regular cleaning or for a nagging issue that needs to be looked at.
When you come into the office, your donation will be placed in the designated ORHS box. One hundred percent of all donation will go towards medical care and fostering these animals until they find their furever homes!
What’s more, Lake Oconee Dentistry has agreed to match every donation, dollar for dollar, up to the first $1,000!
This doggone good deal allows you to stay on top of your oral health while also helping the IRHS and dozens of animals that come through their door every day!
Don’t miss this amazing op-paw-tunity! Call the office today at (706) 468-3233 to schedule an appointment. Be sure to mention this letter to receive free x-rays with your donation. But hurry! You must give the team at Lake Oconee Dentistry a call by Friday, August 10th! Thanks for being a friend to ORHS and for your continued commitment to their mission. They have made a difference in the lives of a lot of dogs…including ours!
With Canine Affection,
Whiskey and Sadie
P.S. Your donation can help put a smile on a dog’s face while polishing up your own smile at the same time! Call (706) 468-3233 to schedule your appointment and free x-rays!
Adoptions at Farmview MArkets
ORHS has weekly adoption events at various locations around the area. On Saturday, July 14, 2018, we were at Farmview Market in Madison, GA. We love to share our animals with others and spark interest in finding our precious dogs and cats forever homes. We were able to find homes for a few of our residents, but we do still have others that need homes. Please feel free to stop by our next adoption event on Saturday, July 21 at the ORHS Center, located at 1020 Park Ave, Greensboro (located behind Pickle Barrel Restaurant) and check out our wonderful animals as well as the Furniture Sale that will be happening that day. We will be there from 9am to 3pm for the Furniture Sale and 11am to 3pm for adoptions.
This gorgeous girl came to us from animal control right before she had kittens...literally, RIGHT before she had kittens! Yes, she gave birth to 7 beauties 3 hours after her arrival! But now that her kids are weaned, Priscilla is ready for a home of her own and she would be thrilled to have a sun room or screened porch. This is a sweet young lady who thoroughly enjoys lounging in the sun but is still very playful. If you’re looking for a pretty companion with a great personality, then Priscilla is your girl!
Jenny came to us last December. Some people had found her and her siblings in a box. Emaciated and worm-ridden, two of the five puppies were unable to be saved.
Jenny weighed only a pound and a half! She was a fighter though and she started to recover with the help of great veterinarians and the love of a foster family.
Jenny was adopted in February but sadly, through no fault of her own, she was returned by her new owner. She is a sweet girl with an extremely passive demeanor.
She plays well with other dogs and wants to be held, although she has grown a little large for most laps! She walks great on leash, is crate trained and appears to be housebroken. She looks like she will stay a petite medium size and wants nothing more than to please a new owner!
