Try your local vets first. Leaving it at an animal shelter is not a great idea. I work for a shelter and with the limited amount of space, he could be taking up room that another homeless animal desperately needs. Also, most shelters require you ti relinquish ownership of the animal, meaning that it could be placed up for adoption or euthanised if space dictates. There are also boarding facilities in the area. There is one in Barrow County called Winding Creek that I hear is pretty good. There are also a few in Athens, check out http://www.athenspetropolis.com and tell them that Katie sent you, or you can check your yellow pages for “Pet Boarding” or “kennels”. I hope this helps.
