CHUCK- Male - 2 Years - Akita Mix

Chuck has definitely captured our hearts! He is a sweet, affectionate 45 pound pup, and loves to give hugs with his head. Chuck is very easy to have around, and content to catch a nap in the sun. He has proven to be extremely tolerant of other dogs, and could easily live in a home with canine companions. Humans are his favorite species, though!

AXEL - Male - 1 year - Pitty Mix  

Axel is a 50 pound, rich dark espresso brown mix. Axel loves to play, is eager to please and loves attention. His WHOLE face smiles and he's such a happy boy, who goes into a full wiggle when he's happy. He likes other dogs would love to have a dog that will play with him in his forever home, but if you don't have a dog, that would be all right too! 

His slogan is "Will Love for a Good Home", and he hopes his wit will get him a leg up over his cycle mates! He knows dogs who look like him are sometimes overlooked, so he wants to make sure that you all know that he is more than just a pretty face - he is witty and awesome!


SECRET - Female - 18 month Pitty Mix

Secret weighs in at around 50 pounds and has the most beautiful fawn and white coat. She is very watchful and attentive, and takes in all of her surroundings. She loves to play with toys, and basks in the attention of her handlers.

She is sweet and gentle with people. Secret had a microchip with a registered owner when she found her way into the shelter, but that owner was not able to be located. Secret has had puppies in the not-so-distant past, but all that is behind her now, and she is now ready to be someone's baby. ​​





NUGGET -  Male - 1 Year - Boxer mix

​​Nugget is a 1 year old, who should probably weigh about 45 pounds. Nugget is polite and well mannered. He loves toys and plays well with other dogs. He's studious and very focused on his training. He is eager to please and easy going. Affection is very high on his list of favorite things!. He would be great with children, as a playmate for another dog, or a running partner for active types!

He wasn't in the best condition when we pulled him - he was underweight, and he has heartworms. But he is gaining weight, and Canine CellMates, thanks to Pharr Road Animal Hospital, will be taking care of his heartworms. His spirits are high though - and he knows that before long, he will have a family who will love him forever.

After filling out the application, please submit it online, or print, scan it and email to: adopt@caninecellmates.org. As soon as we have received your application, a member of our Adoption Coordination team will be in touch with you. If you do not get a response within 24 hours, please reach out to us - a technical error may have occurred, and we may not have received your application. Next, we would like for you to attend one of our meet n' greets to meet your potential new pup face to face (dates and times will be announced on our Events page). Lastly, we will conduct a home visit and introduction to your family (both human and non-human). The adoption fee for Canine CellMates dogs is $275 - our dogs are fully vetted, microchipped, spayed or neutered,

on heartworm preventative and obedience and crate trained.                         


Canine CellMates dogs are selected from Fulton County Animal Control, a high intake county shelter. Each dog chosen for the program undergoes extensive temperament testing to determine their suitability for our program. Under the supervision of Jeanette Holloway and training assistants, the dogs and their handlers spend nine weeks learning basic obedience, and graduate from the program by passing an obedience test similar to the AKC's CGC test.

Canine CellMates dogs are available for adoption immediately and will be able to go to their forever homes after graduation. We carefully screen all adoption applications to ensure the right match between dog and person.  Canine CellMates graduates are fully vaccinated, micro chipped, spayed or neutered on monthly heartworm preventive, and obedience and crate trained.

KALI - Female - 2 Years - Pit Mix

​Meet Kali! Kali is a beautiful blue pit, with the sweetest face and softest coat! This poor girl was living in a shed, and though showing signs of being pregnant, puppies were nowhere to be found. After she came in, she developed mastitis. Untreated, this can be deadly, as it can lead to septic shock and even death. She was treated for this, and an upper respiratory infection, something also very common in shelter dogs. Now, this sweet girl is going to have a different ending!
Kali immediately endeared herself to the handlers with her sweet disposition and love of affection. She could easily wiggle her right into your heart as well!


ZARA - Female - 10 months - Rhodesian Ridgeback mix

Zara has yet to meet anyone she doesn’t love. At a recent trip to the vet, she was a social butterfly, and wanted to meet everyone she saw! She has the softest, most soulful eyes that are sure to steal your heart! 

Zara is a 10 month old, 50 pound Rhodesian Ridgeback mix, who might get just a bit bigger. Zara is still very much a puppy, and she dearly loves toys! She would make a great running companion, a playmate for another dog in your home, or your older children's new best friend! 

EVIE - Female - 2 years - Mastiff Mix

​This may be the sweetest girl you ever meet! Evie is very laid back and easy going. She is focused during training, learns quickly and is eager to please her handlers. She is both loving and affectionate, and dearly loves a tummy rub!.

At 75 pounds, Evie has very soft eyes and loves, looking deeply into your eyes in true bonding moments. We think Evie has the soft gentle disposition and temperament to be an amazing companion or therapy dog.
