Meet the members of our

Secret Crush Club

Many of our shelter pets' adoption fees have been paid by a secret admirer. So, use the money you save to buy them the best bed they've ever had - to match your home, the nicest home they'll ever have.

If you find yourself falling in love with any of these secret crush club members, you can find more information about each animal under the Adoptable Dogs and Cats tabs. 

 

Agapi
Agapi is a four-legged therapist, teddy bear, and best friend all in one. She is always there to listen, but she loves a good cuddle too. She has your back no matter what, and she thinks you are the greatest. Agapi is ready to find that person she has been hearing about--the one that will take her home and love her for the rest of her life.
Agatha
Agatha and Einstein are an incredibly sweet, mellow, and well-behaved couple who would love to find a home together, as they’ve lived their entire lives together. They mostly like napping and sometimes taking short walks. Please e-mail Laura at lmckelvey@pawsatlanta.org if you are interested in meeting them.
Einstein
Agatha and Einstein are an incredibly sweet, mellow, and well-behaved couple who would love to find a home together, as they’ve lived their entire lives together. They mostly like napping and sometimes taking short walks. Please e-mail Laura at lmckelvey@pawsatlanta.org if you are interested in meeting them.
Black Beauty
Black Beauty was abandoned in very bad condition. He was emaciated and confused, but he was just as sweet as ever and did not hold that against people in general. He knows most people are could and would be happy to spend every waking moment with them, but he is cool to be on his own a bit too. Just as long as you cuddle him and play with him when you get home! We think he had to fend for himself for quite some time and is not very keen on other dogs so he would do best in a home without other pets.
Brandy
Brandy may only have three legs, but that doesn’t bring down this 5 year old Bulldog, American/Boxer. She’s easy-going, patient, and loyally protective of her family. Please e-mail Laura at lmckelvey@pawsatlanta.org if you are interested in meeting her.
Butter
Butter is a 3 year old Retriever, Labrador/Mix who’s energetic during play time, but gentle and affectionate when it’s time to cuddle. He would do best in a quiet home without children or other dogs so he can have all the attention! Please e-mail Laura at lmckelvey@ pawsatlanta.org if you are interested in meeting him.
Carmelo
Carmelo is so ridiculously hunky and cute. He's 5, so this lug nut is a little more mellow than most, but can still kick himself into "play" gear pretty quickly. Carmelo is friendly with people, all people, including the little ones. We're not sure if he'd enjoy a dog companion in his home. He is a low-maintenance guy who doesn't need to be fussed over. But, he loves a little attention and he's big on belly rubs. If you're looking for a confident, well-adjusted family dog, please consider Carmelo.
Daydream
Daydream’s personality is as pleasant as her name suggests. She’s always happy and loves everyone she meets. This 7 year old Shepherd/Mix is very shy, so she needs someone patient and a home without children or other pets. Please e-mail Laura at lmckelvey@pawsatlanta.org if you are interested in meeting her.
Dempsey
Dempsey's what we call a "go-getter" in the shelter: fun, full-throttle, generous with the licks and love. He's a huge fan of playtime and pretty high-energy, though he does seem to balance out his "go" periods with ample naps once he's back inside. Dempsey is a big, exuberant boy, so he would do best with young adults. His love for tennis balls runs deep, but his love for you will run even deeper.
Henry
Henry is a big 8 year old Mastiff/Mix full of love and happiness. He enjoys taking leisurely walks and then snuggling up for cuddles. He was recently diagnosed with Cushing’s disease, a chronic medical condition that requires medication, but in an adult only home without other pets, you’ll find him to be the best of company.
Jasmine
Jasmine is the most gentle 5 year old Chinese Shar-Pei/Mix you will ever come across even though she lived on the side of the highway for 3 years. She doesn’t have a single mean bone in her body but she’s oh so shy, so she needs to find a quiet, scheduled home with no children. Please e-mail Laura at lmckelvey@pawsatlanta.org if you are interested in meeting her.
King
King is charming, playful, and loving. He lived with another dog and both were turned into a local animal control by their owners despite being GREAT dogs. He seems to do well with other dogs too! He is a big ol' goofball and would be great in an adult only home. If you're interested in meeting this handsome guy, email Laura at lmckelvey@pawsatlanta.org.
Krispy Kreme
As her name suggests, Krispy Kreme is the pinnacle of sweetness. She's constantly smiling, and absolutely happy, even in a shelter. She's a well-adjusted, social girl, who instantly wants to be best friends forever. Krispy Kreme is 5, so she's nicely settled and doesn't require a lot of exercise. We think she's good with other dogs, but if you have one, bring yours to meet her. Krispy Kreme would love to find a laidback, easygoing human looking for a really good dog like her.
Lady
Lady is an easy-going, good-to-the-bone 6 year old Terrier, Pit Bull/Mix who is house-trained, quiet, and non-destructive. She loves a good, full-body cuddle. She needs to go to a home without any other dogs. Please e-mail Laura at lmckelvey@pawsatlanta.org if you are interested in meeting her.
Lady Tripp
Lady Tripp is accustomed to the good life and can't wait to find someone to spoil her rotten again. She has lived with and plays well with other feline friends. She's a playful, curious girl with a big heart and a lot of love to give. She may seem a little shy, but, she's just ready to move into her new home. Lady Tripp is currently waiting for her new family at Java Cats Cafe, so please e-mail Laura at lmckelvey@pawsatlanta.org if you are interested in meeting her.
Lyanna Mormont
Lyanna is a small, sweet girl with stunning markings. She's waiting for you at Java Cats Cafe, so please email lmckelvey@pawsatlanta.org if you're interested in meeting her.
Malocchio
As our resident 10 year old Boxer, Retriever/Labrador, Malocchio is lovingly called “Grandma” because of her old spirit. She’s a relaxed dog who is the best listener when you need to talk and will go on calming walks with you.
Mickey
Mickey is a playful, rowdy, 4 year old Foxhound, American/Mix who attaches to the person who cares for him like glue. He’s still learning about all the world has to offer and needs someone who can help him find his new place in it.
Mother Gothel
Mother Gothel is a sweet 7 year old Shepard/Mix who would love to spend every minute of every day cuddling with you if she could. She loves people of all ages, but isn’t a huge fan of other dogs, so she would do best in a home where she doesn’t have to share the attention!
Oakley
Oakley is a staff favorite. She loves people and craves their company. This 6 year old Boxer/Mix can be shy at first, but with a treat and a little time to relax, she opens up to be her loving self. She would prefer to be an only dog. Please e-mail Laura at lmckelvey@pawsatlanta.org if you are interested in meeting her.
Orian
Orian has a gentle spirit and a heart of gold. He is a little sad right now because him and his siblings lived in a home for their whole lives before coming into the shelter. Don't make him wish on the stars for his new home any longer! Orian is currently at Java Cats Cafe, so please e-mail Laura at lmckelvey@pawsatlanta.org if you are interested in meeting him.
Percy
Percy is a gentle, quiet 6 year old Retriever, Labrador/Mix. He’s thoughtful and inquisitive, so being at the shelter has been confusing for him. He can come off as shy, but we think he’s just looking at each and every person trying to figure out who his forever person will be!
Pumpkin
Pumpkin is an incredibly quiet and sweet 10 year old Shepherd/Mix. She loves all dogs, but her favorites are dogs who just want to lounge around with her. She doesn't have an aggressive bone in her body, but would do best in an adult only home because loud noises and fast movements scare her.
Rezendes
Before finding shelter, Rezendes' world was small and the humans in it were not kind. Now that he's safe with us, we hope Rezendez can get a second chance with someone worthy of his trust and love. He would do best in a quiet, adult home with someone who will give him the time and space to settle in and feel at home. If you're looking for a dog you can help, we would love to see this gentle, loving boy find his happy ever after.
Silver Bells
Silver Bells is more than just a song sung by Bing Crosby. It's also the name of a stellar dog! She is smart and attentive. She makes new friends everywhere she goes, but prefers people to other pets. They tend to have more treats!
Spirit
Spirit came to us emaciated and under-socialized, but at 4 years old, this Boxer/Mix is now ready for the best life can offer. She adores nice walks, car rides, fluffy dog beds, and the company of other dogs. She’s a bit over eager with cats and would do best in a mellow home with older children or just adults.
Tara
Tara is a 1 year old Retriever/Mix who is ready to relax and recline, but still needs an adult who can get on her level and play. A relationship with her will take trust and patience, but once you win her over, the loyalty and friendship you will receive is unmatched!
Wisconsin
When Wisconsin arrived with his mom and siblings, he was days old and all ears. Now, he’s a 1 year old Terrier, American Staffordshire/Mix who’s still all ears. He’s a wicked-smart, sweet boy who is friendly with all people and dogs once they’re properly introduced. Please e-mail Laura at lmckelvey@pawsatlanta.org if you are interested in meeting him.
