Pets at Our Rescue Group:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

GCRR is a non-profit rescue focusing on rescuing dogs from the local kill shelters. We try to focus our attention on the dogs in Cochran/Bleckley County and surrounding areas. We do however take dogs from other Georgia shelters.

About Our Rescue Group:

Georgia Canine Rescue and Rehabilitation is an non-profit rescue that focuses on the rescue, rehabilitation and rehoming of shelter dogs. We are a very small rescue and are in the process of becoming 501 (c) licensed. We rescue animals in need, sometimes they have suffered a very neglectful life and have never known love. We make it our responsiblity to place them in homes where they will be given the life they deserve including: love, attention, understanding, training, patience, medical care, proper nourishment & housing and companionship. Therefore, we screen each applicant very throughly. Our adoption fees generally range from $120-$250 based on how much rehabilitation the dog requires while waiting to be adopted to a good home. If these things are acceptable to you then please visit our adoptables. Unforunately due to the high over-population of dogs in our area we only take owner surrenders in special case situations. All dogs undergo a brief temperment test, including dog-dog testing, socialization and general handling. We will not adopt out any dogs that show any human aggression and/or dog aggression. All dogs will be current on vaccinations, heartworm negative and spayed/neutered prior to adoption. Adoption fees do vary dependent on the medical care needed per pet. We adopt out all breeds of dogs and do have certain restrictions and guidelines for those interested in adopting any of the following: American Bulldogs, Am Staffs, American pit bull terriers, Rottis, Dobies, and any prodominent mixes. If you have questions about the guildlines please feel free to contact us at anytime @ pittieprotector@yahoo.com

Pit bull terriers, Rotties, Dobies and prodominent breed mixes require a home visit and meet and greet with any of the adopters other pets and family members.

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.
