Iris-Bonded with Walker - Donate
Hi, my name is Iris. I’m a 3 year old girl who was picked up as a stray in north Alabama with my brother, Walker. We were taken to a shelter and our owner was contacted but refused to come get us. The shelter asked AGB if they could help and a nice volunteer came to get us. AGB found out I have something called heartworms. If I don’t get the medicine I need I could die! But my new rescue friends said they will never let that happen. They are going to get me well and help Walker & I find a new family together. I’m a sweet, loving girl and just want to find someone who will love me forever. Could that be you? If you think so, and you have room in your heart for 2 super lovable siblings, please fill out an application and ask to meet Iris & Walker. PS…AGB has set up a fund to pay for my medical needs. If you could give a few dollars to help me get well I would really appreciate it. Thanks!

Walker - Bonded with Iris
Hello, I’m Walker. I’m a 3 year old boy who was picked up as a stray in north Alabama with my sister, Iris. We were taken to a shelter and our owner was contacted but refused to come get us. The shelter asked AGB if they could help and a nice volunteer came to get us. AGB found out I have anemia, itchy skin and bacterial and yeast infections. AGB’s doctors are treating me for these conditions and I already feel so much better. I’m a sweet, friendly boy who would be your very best friend if you’d just give me the chance. I love my sister so much and can't stand to be without her, so we need to find a family who has enough love for the 2 of us. What do you say? Why not fill out an application and ask to meet us, Walker & Iris.

Max VI - ADOPTED
12/9/16 - We always love it when volunteers and former adopters contact us about adopting another dog, and in this case another senior dog. Summer, pictured on the left, was adopted in 2013 by Amy and Matt, and now they have added Max to their home. Max was left at the groomer's and never picked up. None of us could imagine someone abandoning such a sweet, beautiful boy except that he had Heartworms which AGB of course treated him for. When Summer and Max met it was love at first sight, and new parents were smitten as well. Amy tells us that Summer and Max are rarely ever more than a few feet apart. What a wonderful ending to a sad story! Thank you Shannon and Jay for fostering him. Happy life beautiful Max!

Haley- DONATE- ADOPTION PENDING
Hello everyone, I’m Haley. I’m about 7 years old & I weigh 33 lbs. I was found scared out of my wits running down a busy highway. Luckily for me, a nice lady stopped & picked me up. She contacted AGB & they took me in. I don’t mind telling you, I was in rough shape. I had been on my own for quite some time and that is no way for a sweet and sensitive girl like me to live. AGB vaccinated me, treated me for fleas, hook & whip worms, spayed me & removed a growth they found. My hips were also hurting something awful & they have started me on medicine for that. I was malnourished so they are feeding me good, which is something I haven’t had for a while. They found I have heartworms which are very serious, but they promise to get me well & to help me find my very own family. That sounds like Heaven to me. All I really want is to be healthy, happy & loved. In return I will be your best friend, protect you & love you with all my heart. What do you say? Does that sound like a good deal to you? If so, I hope you will put in an application & tell AGB you want to meet me, Haley. PS…If you can donate to my medical fund, I would really appreciate it. Thank you!

Creel - ADOPTION PENDING MEDICAL RELEASE
Hello there, my name is Creel. I’m 12-18 months old and weigh 42 lbs. My family turned me into a shelter and the shelter quickly contacted AGB because of my special needs. They noticed I don’t walk very well so AGB’s doctors did some X-rays. They found I had previous fractures in my legs and I need surgery to repair my legs and help me live a healthy, pain free life. I am a sweet and loving fella and I’m so grateful that AGB is willing to help me get well and find a family to love me. If you have a heart for a sweet fella who needs a little tender loving care, I hope you will take the time to meet me, Creel. PS… AGB has set up a fund to help with my medical expenses. Any amount you can give will really be appreciated.

Gigi - ADOPTION PENDING
Hello friends, Gigi here. I’m 3 years old and weigh just 31 lbs. I recently had a litter of puppies in a shelter. After I got all my pups weaned, the shelter found a place for them and contacted AGB to take me in and get me healthy. You see, I am heartworm positive, have some broken teeth and a mammary infection. Taking care of my pups in my weakened state was hard, but I had to make sure they were ok. Now that I know they will be alright, I am so happy to be getting some treatment so that I can get well and find a forever family of my own. I’m friendly and sweet and I just need a little kindness and affection to help me blossom into your very best friend. If you have it in your heart to take in a little lady who has been through some tough times, I hope you will ask to meet me, Gigi. PS… AGB has set up a fund for my medical bills. Any amount you can donate would make me smile. Thank you.

Freddie - ADOPTED
12/6/16 - Freddie is now adopted and re-named Bear! This spunky nine year old was found by a Good Samaritan and taken to a vet where they discovered he had a microchip. The owners were called, but no longer wanted him. That's not the case anymore, since he is now living in a downtown condo, enjoying the view, and being the center of attention from his new parents! Thanks Susie Q for the foster and good luck little Bear.

Charley IV
Hi, I’m Charley! I’m 4 years old and weigh 64 lbs. I’m a sweet boy who likes people, playing, walks and car rides. I’m friendly towards most dogs and a fairly easy going dog. I don’t like fireworks or cats. (Well, I like to chase cats, but I’m told that’s not nice.) I’m house trained and know how to sit on command. I’m healthy and ready to find my forever family. Could it be you? If you are looking to bring a furry best friend into your life, I hope you will submit an adoption application to AGB. Make sure you tell them you want to meet me, Charley. I can’t wait to meet you!

Adele
Hello, it's me. I was wondering if after all these years you'd like to meet. My name is Adele (like the singer - I used the lyrics from her song “Hello” in my greeting). I’m an older gal, probably 9-10 years old, but I am fun and friendly. I weigh 52 pounds. I was picked up in North Alabama as a stray and sent to a shelter. I found the shelter to be a noisy, scary place even though the people there were kind to me. They contacted AGB for help. AGB got me to a doctor who treated some wounds on my legs and had to pull a tooth that was bothering me. I am feeling much better now that I am in my foster home. I am a calm, well behaved girl and everyone who has met me tells me I’m very sweet. If you are looking for a sweetheart to call your own, I hope you will submit an adoption application and tell AGB you want to meet me, Adele. PS...I am available for the seniors to seniors program which means my adoption fee will be waived for adopters 65 and older.
