One of our main priorities at Safe Pet Project is getting our mountain pets microchipped so if they become lost they can be reunited with their owner quickly and safely. A microchip is a tiny rice-sized, glass-enclosed microchip that’s embedded under your pet’s skin. When it’s scanned with a microchip scanner, it reveals a unique number that’s displayed on the scanner’s screen. That magic number can then be entered into a pet recovery service’s database, bringing up the pet owner’s contact information that’s on file.

January 14, 2023 is the date of our next community microchip event. To help pet owners get their pets microchipped we will be offering the microchip for FREE!

Date: Saturday, January 14, 2023 from 10 am to 2 pm
Location: Safe Pet Project Thrift Store

- Pets must be 6 months or older;
- ALL dogs must be on a leash (no retractable leash) and cats in a carrier;

- When you arrive at our store, please talk to one of our volunteers that will be in the parking lot. We ask you to keep your pets in the car until you have the form filled out and it's their turn to get microchipped. We don't make reservations, it's first come, first serve.
- The event doesn't start until 10 am.

If you have any question, please call us at (706) 400-7076.

The needs of our mountain animals sadly are never ending. As this week comes to a close we want to thank our Safe Pet Project volunteers for all they have done and made possible this week alone. We are so thankful for their love for animals and the hours and commitment they give to animals in need. Looking back at this week.

Edna is a beautiful blind senior Chihuahua who was taken into the "No Paws Left Behind" Program this week. We are so excited to report that she has already been adopted. Her new mom is dedicated to adopting Chihuahuas that are in need.

Willa the beautiful hound which was rescued from a terrible situation where she and 13 other dogs were living in a small area without food for 4 days. Shortly after her rescue we learned she was pregnant. She is now the loving mother of nine beautiful puppies. She is a wonderful mother and adores living with her foster mom.

Bailey is improving with her broken pelvis. She is receiving physical therapy to allow her body to mend as a much as possible prior to her surgery. She is living with her potential adoptive family. She is such a fighter and amazes everyone with her strength and her love for life.

The wonderful couple trying to find Henry a new home turned to us for help. Now as a part of the "No Paws Left Behind" program Henry was adopted today. After he is neutered he will be heading to his new home and his new life.

Cerse an ever so sweet pitbull was attacked by 3 other dogs from her own home. She has Parvo and is also fighting a very serious major infection. We are praying for her recovery and her chance to live the safe and loving life she deserves. We will keep you updated.

Rescuing animals from sad situations and saving animals with major health problems isn’t easy. It truly takes a loving, strong and dedicated team. Safe Pet Project is blessed to be a part of that team. Our volunteers thank our team partners; the amazing folks at Nottely Oaks Animal Hospital, our generous financial donors, thrift store donors and our thrift store shoppers. Not a day goes by that we don’t pause and thank God for each one of you.

12/16/2022

We wanted to give everyone an update on Bailey. Bailey is now called “Miracle Girl”. The doctors are so pleased that although she will continue to need surgery in the future her body is beginning to mend and repair itself. In light of this the plan is for her to undergo therapy on a water treadmill, receive acupuncture and receive physical therapy as she heals. It will be a long recovery but this girl is a fighter. There will be a point in her recovery that she will need surgery but the best thing now is to monitor her natural healing, monitor the improvements from her therapy and then determine the best time for her surgery.

We can’t thank everyone enough for their prayers and support of Bailey. She is an amazing dog that can’t wait to run and play. We love ya Miracle Girl.

Adoption pending!

Hello everyone, my name is Henry. It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas and I sure would like to be living with my perfect family before Christmas gets here. I am a Feist mix and a young male approximately 8 months old. I am about 25 pounds and should not gain much more weight. I am good with people and children. I was surrendered because the kind folks that took me in from my previous owner in order to help me find a new home felt that they needed help in locating that perfect home.

I am so thankful for Safe Pet Project working with Nottely Oaks Animal Hospital to place me in the "No Paws Let Behind" program. This program allows me to find a safe and loving home. I would be great with kids since I am young and we could entertain each other.

I know several commands and I am housebroken. I am a little shy when you first meet me but with a few treats I can be your best friend. I have all my vaccines and was told I would be neutered very shortly. I also will be microchipped prior to adoption.

Please contact Debbie at Safe Pet Project 706-400-7076 Ext 2.

Molly has been adopted!

Hi there. I’m Molly, I’m part of “No Paws Left Behind” and this is your lucky day. What are the odds that a beautiful female, purebred Labrador Retriever is up for adoption. I am just that Lab! I am a chocolate Lab that is a little more than 1 years old and I weigh about 55 pounds.

Let me tell you about myself. I can retrieve, catch, return and drop. I am extremely active and love to play. If you have a fenced in yard that would be a bonus. I do need plenty of exercise because of my youth. I am use to cuddling inside next to people. I love people and want as much attention as you can give me. I also know many commands, I'm housebroken and love everyone. I would be better off if someone stayed home or worked from home since I don't like being alone.

Due to circumstances beyond my control I had to be surrendered. I really like being the only dog in the household because I am very active and seem to irritate older dogs. I can't help it. I am an extreme wiggle butt and really get excited when I see people. I do calm down after a few minutes. Did I mention I'm only about 1 year old?

I'm spayed, I have all my vaccinations and will be microchipped prior to adoption.

If interested please contact Debbie at Safe Pet Project 706-400-7076 Ext 2.

Hi friends, My name is Hokey. I'm a handsome newer dog in the "No Paws Left Behind" program. This program allows me to find a safe and loving home just in time for Christmas. I am a Lab/Pit mix with a beautiful coat of chocolate and brown with a white star on my chest. I am extremely happy and a real wiggle butt. I love to play ball and if you have a fenced in yard we could play all day.

I don't really understand why but unfortunately I was take to Animal Control to be euthanized. I'm so thankful I was rescued by Nottely Oaks Animal Hospital and Safe Pet Project and placed in the "No Paws Left Behind" program. Thank Goodness! I am presently at Nottely Oaks enjoying all the attention and love from the staff.

I am approximately 4 years old, trained, housebroken and love kids. I am around 60 pounds, very sweet and love treats. Please call to come by to meet me and you will see how I can make you laugh. Did I also mention I love treats? If you are interested please call Debbie from Safe Pet Project at 706-400-7076 Ext. 2

Hello I’m Bailey. I’m a 12 week old hound mix puppy. I need your prayers and I need your help!

I’m in the “No Paws Left Behind” program of Safe Pet Project and Nottely Oaks Animal Hospital. I was taken into the program because I had severe trauma to my pelvis and I can no longer use my hind legs and therefore can no longer walk. My former family isn’t sure what happened to me and they are no longer able to take care of me. Sadly, they gave me up to be euthanized.

The doctors at Nottely Oaks Animal Hospital examined me and X-rayed me. They say they have never seen a broken pelvis as severe as mine. BUT they also see my unbelievable strength and determination to live to move beyond this injury. They have found an excellent veterinary surgeon at a clinic in Asheville. He feels he can repair my fractured pelvis so I can live, find a new home and have a good, long life.

My “No Paws” family has made an appointment for this week for me to have the surgery to have my pelvis repaired. It is estimated that the surgery will cost $6,000 to $7,000. They aren’t sure where they will get the money but they are as determined to raise the money as I am to walk again and not be euthanized.

Will you please join my family of angels and donate to help me? Please! Thank you for your prayers and thank you for donating to help with the cost of my surgery next week. ❤️

Bailey

We are happy to announce we are back to providing our Spay & Neuter Incentive Program full time! Cats are $60, and Dogs are $100 - we partner with Tri-State Spay/Neuter Clinic in Murphy! The surgeries are performed there... you can go to our website to purchase your voucher: https://www.humanesocietyofblueridge.org/spay-neuter-incentive-program

The Spay & Neuter program costs have risen since our inception of the program, but they are still significantly less than that of a regular vet - we hope this helps!

We are so thankful to everyone who expressed their love and concern for our beautiful Willa and her soon to be born puppies. We have the best news possible. We have found a wonderful foster mom who will welcome Willa into her loving home. Willa will be living in Mineral Bluff Georgia and will be just up the road from her extended family members from Safe Pet Project, Freedom For Fido and Nottely Oaks Animal Hospital.

Great news! Kona has been adopted.

Hi my name is Kona and I am a very special dog. The first thing you may notice about me is the color of my crystal blue eyes. You may also notice I know some basic commands. I was trained through Colwell Detention Center as a Cold Nose Graduate. I am currently in the “No Paws Left Behind” program of Safe Pet Project and Nottely Oaks Animal Hospital. This program allows me to find a safe and loving
home just in time for Christmas.

I am a Husky/Lab mix with a beautiful temperament. I love children however, since I am over 58 pounds I have a tendency to wag my tail and can tip over toddlers. Older children that like to run, play ball and hike would be much better for me. I have lived with a family with children however they unfortunately could not keep me. I have all my vaccines, I am neutered and microchipped. I am approximately 1 to 2 years old, housebroken and love kids. I am very sweet and love treats. The staff at Nottely and Safe Pet Project really have fun with me but I really need a home of my own.

Please come by to meet me and you will see what a handsome and loving dog I am.

UPDATE: We have found a wonderful foster mom for Willa.

Foster Home Wanted: An animal lover with a big heart, time to spend with a very very special dog and a nursery area for the soon to be born puppies.

Meet Willa. Willa was rescued through the joint loving efforts of Safe Pet Project, Nottely Oaks Animal Hospital and Freedom For Fido. When rescued, Willa had experienced a very tough life. She hadn’t even been fed for 4 days. As sad as her past was, we are determined to give her the amazing life she deserves going forward.
We are looking for the perfect foster home for Willa.

Willa has a lot going on in her life. She is heartworm positive (under treatment) and is pregnant. We anticipate she will deliver in about 2 weeks. Ultrasound shows she is carrying 5 puppies.

Can you provide the foster home Willa and her babies need and deserve? If so please call Safe Pet Project in Blairsville, Ga at 706-400-7076, Ext. 5 or send us a private message.

We know the perfect foster family for Willa is out there. ❤️

“Hi there! My name is Mulligan. I am 4.5 y/o. I am a neutered male, current on all three vaccines and have been tested negative for FIV/FeLv, I’ve also had full blood work panels done. I’ve been an indoor kitty that occasionally goes out on a screened in porch. I love using scratching posts and love attention. I am a very sweet boy, but I desperately need a new home where I can be the only cat! I get severely stressed around other cats and it makes me angry at the world, but once I’m away from them, I turn back into my super loving sweet self. I’ve lived and been around dogs, as long as they are laid back I’m okay with them, but if it’s a high energy dog that wants to be all up in my business, I’ll probably smack them a few times for good measure. I’ve never really been around kids, but I think I’d be good with kids like ages 9 and up… smaller kids might be a bit too annoying for me. I’ve had a few health issues in the past, but they have been mostly due to the stress caused by the other cats I live with. That being said, I do like to eat things I shouldn’t… which meant I had to have a surgery once for eating something really stupid. If you think you could offer me a cushy home w/o other cats in it, please let my mom know ASAP! Her number is 706-897-9874 (and she’d be willing to help out by sending some cat related goodies along with me. Extra incentive to take this ginger boy!) Oh, also, I’m currently to be found living in Blairsville, GA.”

UPDATE: Thatcher has been adopted.

Hi there! My name is Thatcher. If you’re looking for the perfect addition to your family then look no further. I am a lovable, energetic, happy little trouble maker! Actually I'm not a real trouble maker but I very rambunctious. It is the puppy in me. Actually I'm almost 2 years old but I need a very active family or another dog my age to constantly play with. I really need a fenced in yard so I can run and play with my family members.

It truly was my lucky day when Animal Control contacted Nottely Oaks Animal Hospital and Safe Pet Project to rescue me from being euthanized. I have been selected to be in the "No Paws Left Behind" program. This program is very special. Which means I'm very special. It helps me find a loving and safe home. I'm 17 pounds of pure fun. I have all my vaccines and am microchipped.

I just want to play, play, play all day long and most of all be near people. It will take at least a few seconds to fall in love with me. I would be great with children. I could grow up with them. However, I do like to steal toys but I don't destroy them. Also, if you like camping I'm sure I would enjoy that too! I am very smart and wiggly. I know many commands and I am housebroken. I do sleep in a crate at night so I stay out of trouble.

If you're interested please contact Debbie at Safe Pet Project: (706) 400-7076, Ext. 2.
