Tortie Girl Finds Her Forever Home

Tortie Girl has been a favorite with SNAP volunteers and visitors ever since she arrived at our Howell Mill location.  This gentle girl loves to play, and purrs when you pay attention to her. Although we will miss visiting with her, we are thrilled that she went home with her adoptive mother this week. Are you interested in adopting?  You can visit the I-75 and Howell Mill PetSmart to view adoptable animals at any time.  The adoption center is manned Saturday afternoons, and we are also at the Buckhead PetSmart on Saturday afternoons. From the comfort of your home, you can view our adoptable animals, and even fill in an adoption form...

ADOPTED! Meet Scrabble and Yahtzee

ADOPTED! Meet Scrabble and Yahtzee

Scrabble and Yahtzee are a pair of silky midnight black kittens with expressive eyes and long, soft fur.  In fact, the only way you can really tell them apart is that the female (Yahtzee) has an unusual streak of charcoal/white in her tail; her brother is all black and both have luminous gold/green eyes.  Scrabble (male) loves to be rubbed and arches his back in pleasure when you pet him; Yahtzee is smaller and a little shy, but purrs loudly once she gets to know you. We would like to adopt this pair of siblings together because, as you can see, they are tightly bonded.  You can visit Scrabble and Yahtzee any time at the permanent pet adoption center inside the PetSmart off of Howell Mill Road and I-75 in Atlanta. SNAP volunteers are on hand every Saturday between noon – 3 for an in-person visit.  Email snap@comcast.net for more...

New PetSmart Adoption Center Opens Volunteer Opportunities!  Apply Today!

SNAP-2 IT is thrilled to announce our expanding partnership with PetSmart.  SNAP has been given the opportunity to establish a permanent SNAP adoption center in the PetSmart store located off of Howell Mill Road in Atlanta.  As you probably know, SNAP has shown adoptable pets every Saturday afternoon at the Buckhead PetSmart for the past two years.  While we will continue showing at the Buckhead location, having a new, permanent adoption center will allow us to not only broaden the reach of people exposed to the SNAP mission and adoption opportunities, but significantly ease some of the logistics around pet transportation, supplies and adoption pick-ups. This expansion also opens up new volunteer slots in the SNAP organization.  SNAP is actively seeking applicants for several new volunteer opportunities: Animal Caregivers:  Animal Caregivers are responsible for visiting the animals in the Howell Mill PetSmart adoption center, cleaning boxes and changing food and water every morning and every night.  This includes holidays even when PetSmart is closed for the day.  Although the time commitment is small, the need for reliability cannot be overemphasized.  The animals that live full-time in the adoption center rely on the Animal Caregivers for their daily needs. We welcome split shifts if necessary. Let us know if you can help for a limited period of time (for example, twice a day for a week) or only at a certain time of day (early morning or early evening). Adoption Volunteers:  Adoption Volunteers help the public meet our adorable, adoptable pets on the weekends at one of the PetSmart locations (N. Peachtree or Howell Mill).  Adoption Volunteers greet people who stop by to see our animals, answer general questions, share SNAP’s mission and invite the public to get involved even if they don’t adopt. Adoption Volunteers also take adoption applications, put together welcome packets, and play with the pets during the event! Adoption Counselors:  Adoption Counselors are experienced rescue workers who screen adoption applications, ensure animal readiness, coordinate adoption logistics, and handle adoption fees.  Adoption Counselors may work at either location, and make home visits as needed. Interested?  Email snap@comcast.net for more details and to receive an application.
