It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Alfie
(aka Ralph)

Alfie came to us about 2002.
His owner died, after which the relatives promptly deposited him at the local shelter in North Carolina.  Then Alfie got quarantined at the shelter during an outbreak of Parvo.  Luckily for him and for us, he got out alive, and made his way down to Georgia!
Alfie was a beloved member of the household,  a wonderful staff member, and will be sorely missed by all!

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Beethoven.

Beethoven came to us in 1996 from Orange County Animal Control in Orlando, Florida.  He was a very sad dog at the time; his owners had moved, but left him tied to the porch, and his harness had cut into his shoulders.  However, being a young, strong dog he recuperated quickly.  He became a a much loved member of our family, and an excellent employee.  He will always be in our hearts.

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Teddie.

Teddie came to us in 2003 from Macon Georgia Animal Control.  He had been adopted at Pet Smart on a Saturday, but was returned to Animal Control the following Monday when the new owner discovered that he had bad eyes and might need surgery.  We eventually had to remove his eye, but he did just fine without it.  Teddie was a very self-confidant and independent dog.  He didn't have much to do with the other staff members, preferring to work and relax on his own schedule.  We basically let him do what he pleased.  Heart disease took him away too soon, but we will love him forever.
And Now, Bring Out the Tissues  . . .
I explained to St. Peter,
I'd rather stay here,
Outside the pearly gate.
I won't be a nuisance.
I won't even bark.
I'll be very patient and wait.
I'll be here chewing, on a celestial bone
No matter how long you may be.
I'd miss you so much, if I went in alone.
It wouldn't be heaven for me.

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Munchie
(aka Munch Bear).

Munchie started at the bottom, as a greeter in our Orlando, Florida store.
His friendly manner and leadership abilities took him straight to the top!
One of his favorite quotes:
"Hard work never hurt anybody, but try telling that to some of the younger employees!!"

We adopted Munchie in 1994, and he was a great dog from day one.

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Toby.

Toby came to us from Perry, Georgia Animal Control.  A caring officer of that facility made sure he got into rescue, and Toby decided he liked it here and didn't want to leave.  Toby had heart disease;  because of good veterinary care, he surely lived a lot longer than most with the same problem. 
We'll miss him always

Here's Abby -- Intern
"I came from Athens, GA.  A nice lady at Companion Pet Rescue in Eatonton, GA made sure I got out of animal control.  They said I bit someone, but I have never bit anyone but Cricket, cause she was trying to steal my food.  They say I need to work on my concentration.  So far, that's really hard to do but I'll keep trying.  Wish me luck"
Our family is much larger, and we will add more photos as time goes on.

"I took up at this place a year or two ago.  So far, I get all the food I want and I can pester the heck out of the other cats, at which I am very successful.  My tail is incredible isn't it!"
