About Our Rescue Group:

I moved to the north Georgia mountains 18 years ago and while I love the mountains, I was sickened to see how many domestic animals are dumped in the mountains and left to fend for themselves. I started taking them in a few at a time, and spent thousands of $ I earned as a nurse. I soon became a non-profit licensed shelter. I work the shelter as a sole volunteer with an occasional hand from my children. To date, I have placed over 500 needy animals most of them large dogs. It is defeating at times as I seem to get 3 critters in for each one I place but I try to remember that as far as the overpopulation problem, I don't make much of a difference in the world, but to those I have taken care of, I have made a world of a difference. I do not get any public funding and we are always looking for food, medical,bedding, etc. donations. I do not euthanize an animal because their medical needs are too great, they're too old or too something else( people come up with some doosies). They only need a chance and they get it with me. If you have some extra funds to spare, we would appreciate it. I am a single working Mom with 3 kids and dozens of needy big lovable lugs that need their own family to care for and love them. Come and meet our crew.

Come Meet our Pets:

We are flexible for meeting our pets. We welcome you to our home where the animals are our personal pets and socialized until they become yours. Just give us a call. I also bring some of our pets to PETSMART to show and adopt them.

Our Adoption Process:

We do interview prospective adoptive families to be sure we have a match and to be sure our pets like you. Our fees are $150.00 for adoption which covers spay/neuter, all shots inc. rabies, wormer, and heart-worm test. These fees don't quite cover our costs(check it out with your vet) but it helps defray some of our costs so the next animal we take in can be taken care of medically. I will always take my own animals back, and we hold the checks for 10 days just to be sure it is a match.

Our Adopted Pets:

We have helped lots of pets connect with loving and caring owners. Check out our adopted pets list!

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, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
