Pets at Our Rescue Group:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

We adopt to people in the Greater Metro Atlanta and surrounding Area until more volunteers in other areas sign on to help!

About Our Rescue Group:

We are the first rescue in the state of Georgia specific to rescuing poodles and poodle mixes.

Georgia Poodle Rescue is a legal entity formed under Georgia Poodle Club Incorporated. We are a licensed and permitted non-profit corporation, in the application process of obtaining our tax-exempt 501c)(3) status and located in the new city of Milton, Georgia, formerly known as Alpharetta unincorporated.

We were created to rescue, rehabilitate, and provide sanctuary for unwanted poodles, poodle mixes, and other animals as resources allow. Once these poodles have been properly rehabilitated and trained, our goal is to adopt them into appropriate, loving, and responsible “forever” homes.

We do the work for you! We want our adopted dogs to be adopted into their forever homes on the first adoption and not be bounced around from home to home. To help ensure our dogs get a good chance of this, we are the first rescue organization that we know of that commits to providing ALL of the following to dogs adopted from us: training in a cage-free home environment in basic obedience, socialization, housetraining, how to walk on a leash, pack leadership protocols (with instructions to the lucky new owners), up-to-date vaccinations, spaying/neutering, and microchipping. Adoption fees vary between $125-$350 per dog, which allows our organization to continue feeding, housing, training and providing medical and nutritional care for the poodles, especially for those poodles that will most likely be with us for the rest of their lives due to their age or other issues. The adoption fee also includes a free one-year membership in Georgia Poodle Club Incorporated and lifetime discounted dog boarding at the exclusive Blue Willow Farm.

If you cannot adopt from us, we greatly accept all generous funding and other donations to help our organization continue helping the poodles.

Our private shelter is limited to 20 dogs at this point in time until we can raise funds to expand our space. As such, we are always in need of good foster homes and volunteers to help us out at our events. We are also in the process of forming various committees and are looking for people to help lead, manage, and volunteer on these committees. If you are interested or have any thoughts to help out, please contact us at georgiapoodlerescue@gmail.com.

Our full contact information is: email at georgiapoodlerescue@gmail.com , phone at 678-624-0444, and US mail at 980 Birmingham Road, Suite 501-230, Milton, GA 30004.

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.
