Pets at Our Rescue Group:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

We are located in Atlanta and the majority of our adoptions are within the state of Georgia. We do take out of out state applications and they are reviewed on a case by case basis.

About Our Rescue Group:

Furkids/SmallDog Rescue and Humane Society, Inc. is a 501c)(3), tax-exempt organization dedicated to find loving families for homeless dogs in the Atlanta area. Every year, over 90,000 animals are killed in Georgia shelters. Our volunteers rescue many dogs from local shelters and foster them in their own homes until a suitable forever home is found. We do not shy away from taking sick or difficult dogs into our program. Thanks to donations, we are able to provide excellent medical care for all of our little orphans. Our volunteers work tirelessly on training, socializing, and giving the dogs all of the loving care that they so much deserve. Thanks to our friends and supporters, we have been able to save many lives in each of years. It is caring individuals like you who can make a difference in the lives of our wonderful orphan animals. We hope you enjoy your visit to our website, and come visit us at Petco in Sandy Springs, every Saturday from 12 noon til 4 pm. We're at the corner of Hammond Drive and Roswell Road, in the Whole Foods shopping center every Saturday. We're also at the Petco in Alpharetta (10980 State Bridge Rd.) from 12 p.m. – 3 p.m on the last Saturday of the month. See you there!

Our Adoption Process:

A completed adoption application is the first step in our process. The application can be found on our website. An Adoption Counselor will review your application, and contact you via email, so please double check your email address on your application.

Our adoption fee is $275.00 for animals under 8 years of age and $125.00 for animals 8 years and older. The fee includes spay/neuter, heartworm check (and treatment if necessary), current vaccinations, microchipping, and in some cases life saving surgery or medical treatment.

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.
