Meet AUSTIN - In Foster Home

Please note - Austin is in a foster home while going through heartworm treatment. His foster family will likely be adopting him after his treatment is complete.

This cutie is Austin! He arrived at the shelter as a lost boy on 10/25, and sadly, no one has come to reclaim him. He sure is adorable, and somebody will be lucky to adopt him! The volunteers describe Austin as very sweet and gentle. He is quiet in his kennel, and he sits very nicely when asked. Austin seems a little sad and confused in the shelter. Can you help turn his frown upside down? He'd sure love to meet you! If he sounds like a good fit for you, please make an appointment today.

Austin is approximately 1 year old, and he weighs 21 lbs. He is UTD on vaccines, and neutered; he will be microchipped when adopted. Sadly, he has tested positive for heartworms but with treatment, he should be good as new in no time. Austin is waiting in run 317; his ID # is 650291.

Please note, all of the pet listings on Friends of Shelter Animals for Cobb are done by volunteers, not shelter staff. If this pet came in as lost (not an owner surrender), we don't know how they might be with children, other pets, or if house trained. You can bring your pet to the shelter for a meet & greet with your potential new best friend. When calling the shelter about a cat or dog, please use THE ID NUMBER, names are oftentimes made up by volunteers.

This pet and many others are available for adoption from the Cobb County Animal Shelter 1060 Al Bishop Dr. Marietta, GA 30008, call (770) 499-4136 for more information.
