19 More Georgia Dogs Saved from Gas Chamber



This animal rescue effort is In memory of a nursing mother dog who laid over her pups to protect them as they were put into a gas chamber. She died .... and her pups survived the horrors of this barbaric method of euthanasia.

Nineteen dogs destined for death in Georgia now have a new leash on life, and are waiting for adoption at our Tinton Falls, Newark and Forked River shelters. The gas chamber is an extremely cruel and thoughtless way of handling the pet overpopulation, yet sadly, it is business as usual in many states in the South. Georgia is fortunate to have an organization called Death Row Dogs whose entire effort is directed at saving stray and owned dogs from the gas chamber. According to them, 90,000 dogs are euthanized annually in Georgia, most by gas chamber.

In late January, 2006, fourteen dogs from Georgia were saved through the joint efforts of AHS and Death Row dogs, and all were lucky enough to find wonderful homes. Without endangering any of our current canine population we are pleased to be able to save an additonal nineteen at this time.These new dogs that recently came in were a bit scared and stressed from their journey, but by all accounts are just as deserving of loving decent homes and lives.

The dogs were driven up from Georgia on Saturday, June 17th, and have been examined by AHS veterinarians. All dogs are up to date on their inoculations and many have already been spayed or neutered. Most of the dogs can be seen either here on our website or on Petfinder.com.  The dogs range in age from about 1 to 3 years, and include mixed breeds, Retriever types, Hounds, terriers and mixed breeds. All are of sound temperament, and we suspect, will be extra grateful for the chance at a home.

The dogs pictured on this page are all at our Forked River shelter.
