Boggs Mountain Holding Pet Adoption

Boggs Mountain Humane Shelter is trying to find good homes for pets that are still in the facility while the Georgia Bureau of Investigation is looking into recent allegations surrounding the shelter’s lucky dog program.

To do this, the shelter has announced a major adoption initiative, with the first of several adoption events taking place this weekend.

On Saturday, between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., an adoption event will be held in the area between Walmart and Home Depot here in Clayton.

Kirk Knous, a member of the board of directors of Boggs Mountain Humane shelter, encourages everyone to come out and adopt a pet.

“We’ll have a wide selection of puppies, kittens, as well as adult dogs and cats, so please come by,” said Knous. “Bring your family with you so you can pick out a pet.”

Knous said there are currently around 70 animals still in the shelter, which is down from around 120 when the shelter was first closed.

The shelter is currently open for adoptions only, Tuesday through Saturday, from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m.

The internal investigation by Boggs Mountain and the investigation by the GBI is still ongoing.
