Review for Henry County Humane Society Inc, McDonough, GA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Two years ago, on July 5, I drove from East Central Florida to the Henry County Humane Society to pick up a Shih Tzu named Lindsey (now named Emmie Grace.) I had applied for her not knowing if I would be considered since it was written that there were no adoptions outside of the Atlanta area. But, after losing my 15 year old Shih Tzu in June and being devastated, I wrote how I felt after seeing "Lindsey" on Petfinder.com. When Susan called me to tell me she was mine, I was ecstatic. She and another person investigated potential places for me and "Lindsey" to stay overnight so we could have time together and rest before making the trip back to Florida. Susan also helped me with getting all the official paperwork done including that which changed her name to Emmie Grace. She got me a harness (one that I brought was too big) and a carrier that would work for Emmie. Emmie had been bathed and groomed prior to my getting to the shelter. Emmie looked so different but Susan assured me she was the same dog. After we got home to Florida, Susan had me check in with her a few times, which I was happy to do. This shelter had saved my Emmie Grace's life! She had been taken in with her brother from a high-kill shelter. I understand her brother is also living in Western Florida and both now have excellent homes. The newsletter from the Henry County Humane Society is so wonderful to read each month to keep up with the adoptions and work that is being done to help all the adorable animals at the shelter. I will always be grateful to them for saving Emmie Grace for me and for all the wonderful work they do to benefit the rescued animals.
