Briarcliff Animal Clinic occasionally has pets for adoption. If you are interested in adopting from us, you can call the clinic at (404) 874-6393, or stop by and visit. An appointment with one of our veterinarians is required to adopt (complementary), so that we can discuss with you your new pet’s health and medical needs before they go home. Adoption fees are $95 for cats and $135 for dogs, and our adoptees come spayed or neutered, and current on vaccines, testing and parasite prevention. This fee must be paid by check, made out to Briarcliff Animal Foundation.
Grace is a 7-year old, spayed female torti DSH who was adopted from us back in 2009. Since then, she has grown to be a very sweet (and plump) girl! She was surrendered back to us just before Christmas because her living environment proved to be too stressful for her. She was living with another cat, a dog and a small child, and we think it was too much for her. She is the perfect snuggle buddy though, and may be happiest as the only pet. She has a few pounds to lose but is otherwise healthy- more to snuggle! If you are interested in adopting Gracie, please let us know and come visit- her adoption fee has been paid for by her previous owner!
Boka is a sweet girl from Fulton County Animal Services who is being fostered by long-time Briarcliff clients until her HW treatment is complete on May 1st! She will be boarding at Briarcliff for her heartworm treatment. She is a 9 year old female staffordshire terrier looking for a home to live out her golden years! Below is info from her current foster home:
“Boca was at the Fulton County shelter for 4 months after her surrender. Although heart worm positive at surrender, she could not start heart worm treatment while in the shelter. She was released to her foster home on February 16, 2016 and was immediately started on her 30 day heart worm pre-treatment regimen. Boka is doing well and relieved to have a break from the shelter. Boka is a wonderful companion. She is very loving and happy to follow you around wherever you go. She is medium to low energy. A ten minute walk seems to be her pace for now. She does well walking on a leash and riding in the car. She enthusiastically assists in the kitchen when meals are prepared. She is house trained and crate trained. She went into the crate on her own on her first night in foster care and is content to quietly sleep there the whole night. She is also happy to get cuddle time in the bed. She hams it up by giving snuggles and kisses. She also loves to have her belly rubbed and will lie on her back as long as you will scratch. She has been observed looking at herself in the mirror, but she is such a beautiful blue girl who could blame her! She is not a friend of the feline. She has started training with Atlanta-based Frogs to Dogs. She is participating in Day Camps and in home assessment. Boka is excited when around other dogs and will need a strong pack leader and training if in a house with other dogs. That said, the trainers have been positive about her ability to be socialized and trained. Alternatively, Boka would make an excellent single dog companion. One thing for sure is that she loves people. She is not hesitant about meeting new people and quickly shows her sweet personality. Boka will start her heartworm treatment on March 20, 2017 and will be available for her forever home on May 1, 2017. If you are looking for a new companion, this sweet girl is a real catch. Contact BAC if you would like to come by and meet her. We will be posting updates on her progress.”
Boka is for adoption through her current foster parents, not through BAC. If you are interested in adopting her, let us know and we can get you in touch with them!
