Content Warning and Trigger Warning: Euthanasia of Companion Animals
Given the overwhelming number of dogs housed at DeKalb County Animal Services, our team is faced with making extremely difficult and expedited decisions regarding their pathway to a home. The dog profiles you see on this page have the most critical need of leaving the shelter behind, including dogs already on the euthanasia list, urgent dogs, and priority dogs.
Many of the dogs listed below have minor behavioral or health issues which, when paired with our extreme overcrowding, lead to deterioration in a shelter environment. Due to our space capacity and limited resources, we can no longer house them at the shelter and are seeking immediate placement with a foster or adopter where we know they will thrive.
To foster or adopt a dog you see on this page, please only contact firstname.lastname@example.org. We kindly ask for your patience as we work to respond to all adoption and foster inquiries received to this address. If for any reason you have not heard back from us within 24 hours, please send us a follow-up.
