Since they were surrendered by their owner, this put Abbott & Costello at the top of the euthanasia list in a crowded shelter. No longer wanted, their prospects were bleak and their luck had run out.

Sadly, Tessa was always left behind, and our staff members watched this affectionate cat lose her spirit. Until a bold new program matched Tessa with an unlikely adoptive family - almost immediately.

The purpose is to give homeless Georgia pets a better chance at adoption by sending them… READ MORE >
