GREEN COVE SPRINGS – All of the dogs surrendered by a woman in Middleburg on Jan. 23 have been adopted or moved to a shelter, Animal Services Director Ernest Hagan said.

"These are the happiest dogs,” Sumner said. They’re all in such good moods. Some are older, some are young. We’ve got something for everyone.”

All animals are available to be adopted for free, and each has been spayed or neutered, fitted with a microchip, and had their vaccinations updated.

A litter of puppies that were six days old when Animal Services received them is now available, Hagan said.

“We have a very varied selection of animals to choose from,” he said.

Including a dog named Olof.

“He’s everybody’s favorite,” Hagan said. “He loves attention. He’s really just a big, playful goof.”

The adoption process starts at the Animal Services shelter at 3984 State Road 16 near South Fork Black Creek. The kennel is open Tuesday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

“Just go to Animal Services to start the process,” Hagan said. “They’re all in good health. They’re all happy. They just need a good home.”
