About Our Rescue Group:

We are a grassroots, not for profit, all breed animal loving group. Together, we have a considerable amount of experience with dogs and dog care. We are working closely with SOAPS- Sweet Onion Animal Protection Society, located in Georgia. We chose SOAPS because we believe in their mission statement. Education is very important to solving the over population of unwanted animals. We also pull dogs from our local shelters. Our bottom line is to save dogs. We are horrified and saddened by what goes on in kill shelters and are committed to doing something about it. We are starting out very small and we have some GREAT dogs who would make a wonderful and deserving addition to any family!

"He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog.
You are his life, his love, his leader.
He will be yours, faithful and true,
to the last beat of his heart.
You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion."

Come Meet our Pets:

We will be at the Stratford Stars Days October 8 till 5pm.

Our Adoption Process:

We charge a fee to help defray the costs associated with transport, vetting and boarding. We ask that people interested in a particular dog fill out a free application. They will be subject to a home visit and a vet reference check prior to adoption. All family members are to be present for the home visit. We will be looking for unsafe conditions, proper containment and general observation of the surroundings to determine if the applicants are ready and prepared for a pet.

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 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.
