The latest news and pets for adoption from Friends of Shelter Animals for Cobb County.
Sunny Needs Help Paying Dental Bills
Friends of Shelter Animals for Cobb County need help with Shih Tzu Sunny's dental bills. If you can donate please visit Angels Among Us Animal Sanctuary and click on the link to donate. Please indicate it is for Sunny's dental care. We need to raise about $300.
People who didn’t want a senior dog any more dumped Sunny in Cobb County a couple of weeks ago. Angels Among Us Animal Sanctuary stepped up to take him into their program. Sunny has been placed with a wonderful foster home. He is doing great despite being blind and fairly deaf. He's a spunky old dog.
