About Our Rescue Group:

Athens Canine Rescue is a non-profit organization of foster homes in Athens, Georgia. We have no shelter facility and we rely upon a network of foster homes to house our dogs until they are placed in permanent happy homes of their own. ACR only takes in dogs that are friendly, companion animals. As rescue dogs, ACR pups have often been neglected by previous owners, and rarely arrive impeccably trained. They are very trainable however! Whether young or adult, ACR dogs are invariably loving, willing to please and incredibly grateful.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
