AHS Saves Puppies and Dogs from GA Gas Chamber



In mid-January, 3 adult dogs and 9 puppies* faced euthanasia in Georgiaís gas chambers unless help could be found to save their lives. But they didnít have to die ... they were rescued and accepted into our Forked River facility.

Staff holds all nine puppies* -
10-12 week old hound/Lab mixes

At right, a staffer helps one of the newly-arrived dogs feel at home.

Nine hound/Labrador mix puppies, aged 10-12 weeks will be ready for adoption in about one week, as will the other dogs. Most pounds and shelters in Georgia only give their animals 3 days to find a home and then they are euthanized by one of the most cruel methods possible, the gas chamber. Several groups in the South regularly visit these shelters, evaluate the dogs that are there and rescue those they feel are adoptable. At that point they reach out to shelters who might be able to help. In this case, they got in touch with AHS.

John Bergmann, our General Manager and Zoo Director in Forked River, says he saw the pictures of the puppies and offered to take all of them. `I had the room for three adult dogs which I took, but when I saw the nine puppies, I had to make the room.'

* We are happy to report that all nine puppies have been adopted into loving homes.But the very loving young adult dogs still wait for their own forever homes.

It is the mission of AHS to help as many animals in need as we possibly can. It takes long hours from devoted staff to do our job well. The costs of veterinary and day-to-day care escalate on a regular basis, even as more animals need our help. It is only through your kindess that efforts to save dogs and puppies like these are possible. Please make a donation today and help us save more lives.
