Every dog has his day!
No truer words were ever spoken. Each one also has his or her own story. Some of those are recounted here, for your enjoyment, amusement, or heartfelt sympathy.
New Spirit volunteers work hard to make sure that our dogs get that day in the sun!
Siggins was found in an outdoor shelter, dirty, matted and so debilitated that he could not wag his tail. The victim of what appeared to be years of neglect by his owner, he was picked up as a stray after being hit by a car. Due to his age, about 12 years, he was not a good candidate for adoption in the shelter.
Fortunately, he caught the eye of a rescue worker and was pulled from the shelter. After months of rehab, his injuries healed as well as could be expected for a senior dog and he was eventually adopted by a loving couple that wanted to give an old dog a good home. His story is the essence of rescue.

This is Mila, an Australian shepherd and Lab mix. she is spayed, up to date on shots, takes monthly HW and flea med, 3 yrs old and about 50 lbs. Mila is crate trained, housebroken, good with other dogs, and adult humans, medium energy level, loves car rides, but has not lived with a cat. She is not great with children.

Abby is a sweet, friendly 5-year-old purebred Aussie in search of a new home. This beautiful black tri weighs 65 pounds and she is housebroken, crate-trained, knows her basic commands, walks OK on a leash and rides well in the car.
Abby loves adults but has not had a lot of exposure to children. She is fine with small dogs and larger male dogs, although some larger female dogs make her nervous. Abby also thinks of herself as the “kitten whisperer”, having assisted with some litters of foster kittens a few years ago – she loved it! Abby is described as a medium energy, medium-to-high Velcro dog. She loves to play ball, fetch, chase and swim. And when playtime is over, she loves to snuggle and simply be wherever her humans are.
Abby’s ideal home includes an active family with plenty of time for her. A “non-bossy” dog would be fine with her, and a fenced yard would be fabulous.
If Abby sounds like your kind of girl, please contact her owner directly at email@example.com. Abby currently lives in Fountain Inn, SC.
August is a kindhearted, 7-year old purebred Aussie in search of a new home. He is a handsome blue merle weighing roughly 65 lbs and has an undocked tail. He is housebroken, crate-trained, obeys basic commands, walks well on a leash and loves spending time playing fetch or taking a ride in the car.
August loves adults, and would do best in a home without children. He embraces interaction with small dogs (he is one at heart!), but takes longer to warm up to larger friends. August is a medium energy dog who is loyal, obedient and sure to be by your side daily & at the foot of the bed each night (he loves snuggling if allowed!). He loves his stuffed animals/chew toys, chasing a tennis ball and the opportunity to take long walks where he can sniff and investigate. When playtime is over, August loves being wherever his family is. He does well in doggy daycare as well as with overnight boarding.
August's ideal home is one that includes lots of activity. This includes a family that has plenty of time for walks, dog parks and outdoor play. He was bred on a horse farm in VA and would love the ability to explore a large fenced yard or farm.
If August sounds like he would make an amazing addition to your family, please contact his owner directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. August currently lives in Alpharetta, GA.
