Fulton County, GA

Our Dogs

If you are interested in adopting one of our dogs, the first step is to fill out our application.  A member of our Adoption Coordination team will be in touch with you.  The second step is to attend one of our meet n' greets - dates and times to be announced.  The final steps of the adoption process are a home visit and adoption fee.

 The dogs in the Canine CellMates program are all pulled from Fulton County Animal Control, under the management of Lifeline Animal Project, a high-kill facility. In the process of selecting the dogs, each one undergoes extensive temperament testing to determine their suitability for the program. Under the supervision of volunteer professional trainers, the dogs and their handlers spend eight weeks learning basic obedience. Equally important, the dogs are socialized around a variety of people and other dogs during this period.

Canine CellMates’ dogs are eligible for adoption after the eight-week training period and completion of the CGC test, although potential adopters can submit applications and be approved as adopters before the training period ends. Canine CellMates will carefully screen all adoption applications to ensure the right match between dog and person. Click here for adoption application. After filling out application, please re-save it or print and scan it and email your completed application to: adopt@caninecellmates.org.

Like all dogs adopted from FCAS, the Canine CellMates graduates are fully vaccinated, micro chipped, spayed or neutered, and have started monthly heartworm prevention.

 Canine CellMates will also include an Aftercare Network, a group of volunteers willing to work with adoptive families and their dogs to help integrate and keep the dog in the new home. Adoptive families will be asked to attend 4 follow-up training sessions after adoption, to ensure that the families know how to recognize and reinforce positive behaviours, and how to correct undesirable behaviours. Needs that arise after those suggested training sessions will be addressed on a case-by-case basis by this team of volunteers.

Below are the dogs currently in the Canine CellMates program.  Please follow the progress of these dogs in their journey in the program on our Facebook page - https://www.facebook.com/CanineCellMates.
