About burt:

Burt came from a hoarding situation.  None of the dogs were socialized, none know how to walk on a leash.  

Burt is very scared.  He has never shown any aggression at all.  He needs to learn about a loving, wonderful home, and family!

The stray hold, at the Toccoa-Stephens County Humane Shelter, is 5 days. That allows owners a fair amount of time to come looking for their pets. On the sixth day, the animal becomes the property of the Toccoa-Stephens County Humane Shelter and is offered for adoption. An animal may be pre-adopted, however, if the owner comes forward, within the 5-day stray hold, the animal goes back to the owner. The adoption fee is refunded at that time.

Adoption process:

● Fill out an application

● Fill out a contract

● Pay the adoption fee

*Stray animals may be Pre-adopted before the stray hold is up.  However, If an owner comes forward before the animal is picked up by the adopter, the pet would be returned to the original owner and the adoption fee would be returned to the adopter. When pre-adopted, the animal is scheduled to be altered.  When that is done, as long as no one has claimed the pet, the pet can go home with the adopter.


Unfortunately, we are not able to hold animals without the adoption process being completed.

That includes the payment of the adoption fee. Adoptions are done on a first-come, first-served basis. Applications can be emailed and payment can be made via phone and at WWW.PayPal.me/TSCHS.  

Otherwise, we can not hold animals.  After the adoption fee has been paid, arrangements will be made to have the pet altered.  No pets leave without being altered. 

Toccoa-Stephens County Humane Shelter listings are maintained by shelter staff. Dates are estimated and extended if the dog remains available. This dog's status can change at any time. Act quickly if you are interested in saving this dog.

DogsInDanger does not accept pledges. If you want to pledge for, or sponsor, this dog, please contact the shelter.
