Dogs highlighted in blue are in need of a foster family

Bama II
Hi everybody, I’m Bama. I’m a six-year-old male who is going to start treatment for heart worms, but that’s no biggie. There’s also a thing on the schedule called neuter that I’m trying to figure out what it involves. I got turned into the shelter at Rainbow City when my family decided to give me up. I blush as I tell this on myself, but there was the matter of me escaping the fence when I was chasing

Mr. Jett
Hello from Mr. Jett. I’m a gentleman of 31 pounds, who was found on the side of the road by a nice disabled lady. I think she liked me a lot, but couldn’t afford to keep me for long. It was really nice meeting her, but I’m hoping there’s somebody out there who wants a happy-go-lucky fellow to hang out with long term. I love spending time with others, whether they’re on two legs or four. You won’t have

Jet
How do you do? Jet here. I’m a seven-year-old male who weighs in at 87 pounds. I’m really sad to say that my owner went to a new home up in the sky, heaven, I think the humans call it. So now I need to find a new place, too. I was very much loved in that home, so I’m a very loving fellow. I’m house trained and get along super with other dogs. Rides in the car are among my favorite things and I know

Harry
Hello there from Harry! I’m a healthy two-year-old dude who hails from Huntsville. The animal services people there picked me up, but nobody ever came to claim me. Go figure on that one. Their loss can be your gain, because everybody here says I’m a great guy. There were lots and lots of other dogs at the shelter, maybe about 20, and I got along with all of them. I’m active and alert, so I don’t miss

Cooper II - RAINBOW BRIDGE
UPDATE Oct 22nd - It is with heavy hearts that we announce that Cooper II has passed on to the Rainbow Bridge. Cooper was having seizures and had a head tilt which is classic sign of a brain tumor. Arrangements were made to send him to MS at a hospital that specializes in neurological problems. It was confirmed that Cooper had a mass on his brain and other tests ruled out other less invasive medical

Macy
Hello, from Macy. I’m a seven-month-old girl of 51 pounds. I’m healthy and up to date on vaccines and stuff like that. But it’s really sad that my family is moving away and can’t take me with them. Boo hoo big time. We wish it weren’t so, but I need another place to go live. I’m good at riding in a car. That’s so much fun. I need some help to learn not to pull hard on a leash, but I’m a quick study.

Lilliana - ADOPTION PENDING
Hi, I’m Lilliana and I’m as snowy white as the whipped cream you humans like to put on top of an ice cream sundae. I hope you’ll think I’m as sweet too, because I need a new home. I got lost and a lovely lady took me in for about six weeks, but couldn’t find my owners. She was brokenhearted to say goodbye to me, but her husband recently had a stroke, so she felt I should go to a home that had more

Molly V - ADOPTED
Greetings everyone, I’m Molly. I’m five years and seven months old and a very healthy brunette girl. My previous owner had to give me up for adoption because of a change in living conditions. I’ve learned a lot and know sit, stay off and down, plus I’m house trained. I walk nicely on a leash. I’m submissive with other dogs and cats kind of spook me. I might try to make myself small if a cat is in the

George - ADOPTED
Hello from George. I’m pretty excited to be the AGB 300th orphan! I hope that helps me stand out from the crowd. I’m eighteen months old and 26 pounds of furry fun. I came from the Winfield shelter where I was picked up as a stray and I’m so very happy to be here where they’re helping me find a home. Isn’t that the best word in the English language…home? It would be so wonderful to have a place where

Fitz - FULLY FUNDED
Greetings from Fitz. I’m a six-year-old guy, at 56 lbs, who was picked up as a stray by BJAC. Recently, I’ve had a tough time because somebody shot me in the right front leg, which caused a severe fracture. The radiograph shows it was probably a .22 caliber. My leg has almost healed by itself, but they’ve got me on kennel rest for a couple of weeks or so, just to be sure that the bone heals properly.

Fiona - FULLY FUNDED
Hello fine folks! Fiona is here and ready for my belly rub now, please. I’m a loving and lovable girl of 40 pounds and 3- 4 years of age. I tried volunteering at a farm where they had these critters with super skinny legs. When I’d run towards them, they would take off, feathers flying. Guess those farmers didn’t appreciate my attempts at chicken herding, so now I’m here and looking for a new home.

Ernie - ADOPTION PENDING
Greetings good folks! Ernie here, at your service. I’m 56 pounds and about 4 years old. I came down here from the Ft. Payne shelter in a car with a rather hyper young Lab lad, who was bouncing around a lot. But I’m a laid-back dude, who didn’t let that upset me one bit, and I was able to maintain decorum the whole way. I don’t mean to be stand offish, but I guess you could even say I’m a bit shy until

More

Gretta
Hi people out there. It’s Gretta here, a 61 pound, three-year-old lady looking for someone who appreciates my Golden charm and good looks. The nice people here have been helping me with an ear infection, but otherwise, I’m quite “hale and hearty” (healthy & strong) and ready for that forever home. I came from a shelter in Fort Payne and they say I rode quite well in the car. I do enjoy the chance to

Molly IV - ADOPTED
Hi there, I’m Molly, a two-year-old young lady weighing 60 lbs, who’s hoping you want to be my new family. My old family got a new nearly hairless addition that cried really loud and demanded so much attention that they decided to give me up. They think somebody else may have more time to spend with me. I was getting checked out by the doctor and I had some bad news—I have heartworms. I really need

More

Effie - ADOPTED
Hello everybody from Effie. I’m a 7- 8 week old fuzzball ready to bounce into your life and bring you endless entertainment. I’ve been at the vet because I had parvo, but they’ve gotten that all taken care of and I’m feeling like myself again. Right now, they’re making sure I can leave with no residuals of the virus, so that I’m completely ready to go to a new home. I imagine I’ll get adopted really

Cinnamon
UPDATE: August 27th -- Thank you all you Golden Angels for contributing to my medical fund. I am very lucky to have so many awesome angels who are out there watching out for me! You all have a special place in my heart. Hi there, from Cinnamon, an 18-month-old girl of only 31 pounds. When you see me, you’ll know it’s true about that old saying that good things come in small packages. I was surrendered

Tobie
Tobie here, wearing a big Golden smile in hopes of winning your heart and sealing the deal on starting our forever home together. I am a very handsome dude if I do say so myself. As to the basics, I am nine years old, neutered, weigh 80.9 pounds. Other than minor issues of a fatty deposit and some worn teeth, I am in great health and good to go to a fortunate family. I have a super sweet disposition

Hobie - FULLY FUNDED
Hi there! I’m Hobie, a handsome two-tone sort of guy, as you can see in my photos. I’m 13 months old and weigh in at 36 pounds. I got lost, but a nice lady found me and even took me to the vet to be checked out and groomed. That’s where she met the people from this rescue organization and got me hooked up to find a new home. Nobody can figure out where I came from, so I’m ready, set, go to find my

More

Zane - ADOPTED
Hi, I’m Zane Alexander, a 7-year-old male of 55 pounds and I arrived with my friend, Zarian Reign. We came from a home that really loved us, but they couldn’t take care of us anymore because of a cut in work hours. Our humans were leaking a lot of water from their eyes when we left, but I guess they thought it was best for us. For me (Zane), I was in an abusive home for six months before I lived with

More

Jazz - ADOPTION PENDING
Hi there, it’s Jazz here. I’m a 10-year-old lady of 63 pounds who needs to find a new home. My former mom was on disability and was no longer able to care for me. I had tummy surgery seven years ago, so I take an inexpensive medication and I stay on a special diet of 2 cups of prescription I/P dog food daily to keep me from having stomach problems in the future. I know commands such as sit, come and

More

Brennan - FULLY FUNDED
Hi folks, I’m Brennan, a 49 pound dude from Louisiana. I was in the Vermillion Parish shelter and they had me scheduled for something called euthanasia the next day. It must of been something kinda bad, like a carton of milk expiring, because the next thing I knew, a nice human called Martha with J & L Golden Rescue had me snatched outta there and on the way to Birmingham! There was a lovely lady Golden

Chipper
Hi there from Chipper. Everything my sister, Cookie, said is true. I am a 5 month old male pup and weigh 14 pounds. I am pretty darned handsome, don’t you think? We were turned into the Athens shelter, but a nice man from AGB picked us up really fast, so we were there almost no time at all. He thought we were great travelers on the trip to Birmingham and it was fun to ride and see the sights. Now

Sambo II - FULLY FUNDED
Hello there people, from Sambo II. I’m a 4 year old, 60 pound dude, and a handsome one, if I do say so myself. I’ve been a bit of a wanderer for a while, and now I’m looking to settle down. My family moved and somehow we got separated from each other. I was picked up by Mountain Brook animal control and stayed with them until a neighbor in charge of finding me a home came and got me. They posted me

Felicia - ADOPTED
UPDATE: August 21st -- Just wanted to say thank you to the special Golden Angels who took care of my medical needs! I can now focus on getting healthy for my furever family!

Do you want a new furry friend?

More

Sissy
Greetings from Sissy! I’m an eleven-year-old lady, who has been through a bit of a sad time. My 93-year-old human Mom went to that place that people call heaven. We adored each other lots and I’ll admit that she spoiled me a little. Maybe that’s why at 84.5 pounds, I’m a little on the fluffy side and could stand to lose a few pounds. Now I need to find someone who is big-hearted enough to help me learn

More

Ace
Hiya everybody! Ace is here and ready to meet you! At 18 months old and 56 pounds, I still have a lot of pup in me, so if you’re looking for that pep and playful sort of spirit, I can bring it on. I got kinda lost at one point, so somebody picked me up and took me to the shelter in Monroeville. It was a long drive to Birmingham, but it sure was the most fun ever! Wind in my ears, alright now! But it

Dexter - SPECIAL NEEDS
UPDATE October 8th -- Dexter here and I just wanted to update you all on how I have been doing. My foster Mom is taking wonderful care of me. It appears I have some sort of allergies going on, so I am taking allergy medicine so I don’t feel miserable from the effects it can have on me. I also may need other medications occasionally if my allergies flare up, as it can cause me to itch and my poor

Lexie II - ADOPTED
Hi there! It's Lexie and I'm hoping to be the Golden girl in your life. I'm ten years old and at 92.4 pounds, a bit of a marshmallow for sure. There were a lot of dogs and cats at my former home, so maybe my owner didn't realize I was eating too much. Anyhow, my owner went on to that place you humans call heaven and I was turned in to the Decatur shelter because there were no relatives to care for

More

Dakota Blue
Greetings all! Dakota Blue at your service. I am a ten-year-old, 56-pound male, who suffered abuse in my puppyhood. I was tied to a tree, starved and hit with sticks and a bat until a compassionate gentleman rescued me and took me into his home. Now I'm feeling as blue as my name, because this lovely man became very ill and recently passed away. My gentleman raised me well and now I feel all alone.

Casper - ADOPTED
Hi everyone Casper here. No not the ghost. I am a real live boy. I am a little over a year old and weigh 44 pounds; a growing boy. There’s a good chance that I have Great Pyrenees in me, which would explain my big paws. As you can see I am enjoying the awesome outdoors with my foster family. It is great. My foster mom says I have the prettiest brown eyes and my nose looks like a polar bear. I get
