Meet Athena


Lovely Athena is medium sized female German Shepherd who is approximately 5 years old. She weighs about 70 pounds. When she arrived at the shelter she was very pregnant and also tested positive for heartworm.

Soon after her arrival with rescue Athena safely delivered six beautiful, healthy puppies. Once the puppies were weaned and in their forever homes Athena started treatment to get rid of the heartworm. We are happy to report her final injection treatment will be done on December 29, 2022!!

Athena cannot wait to find her forever family to start her new life on her own terms! She is the most delightful girl to every single human she has met. She is a total lovebug and social butterfly with her humans and seeks out petting and affection.

As for other dogs as housemates, she says "nope." We don't know her full past, but we can say she wants nothing to do with other dogs. If you'd love to be the one who helps Athena start the next chapter of a wonderful life full of cuddles and adventure, we'd love to hear from you.
