Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:We adopt to individuals/ families in all the north eastern states.
About Our Rescue Group:We are a small all volunteer state licensed non-profit rescue in rural Georgia. Our county does NOT have animal control so the citizens and deputies are allowed to shoot stray animals since there isn't a place for them to go.
It is sad that the state of Georgia doesn't enforce every county to have animal control but does allow the shooting of strays
That is where CARE comes in and tries to find the owners' of the strays. And as space is available we take in the dumped and unwanted, owner surrenders and the numerous unwanted litters of puppies. We stay full and very busy in this county saving what we can.
We appreciate you considering to adopt one of our pets as their life hasn't been a bed of roses some are fearful at first until you give them a chance to know what it's like to have a family to love and be loved. Once given that chance you couldn't ask for a more loyal or devoted companion. We are so glad for the 200+ families in the Mid-Atlantic states that have given our unwanted, homeless, Georgia country dogs a chance and are now living the life all companion animals should have. Hopefully, we have a pet for you.
THANK YOU ! ! NEW YORK and surrounding states for the tremendous response to our available pets we have posted and now have forever homes up there.
Come Meet our Pets:We don't hold adoption events in the area as our adoptable pets are in the state of Georgia. Since August 2010 we have been very successful adopting to the Mid-Atlantic states of MD, DE, PA & NJ and are now in 2012 extending the area we cover as a result of the wonderful pet transport company we use delivers once a week to the north eastern states.
Our Adoption Process:Minimum requirements:
1. At least 25 yrs. old
2. Valid driver's license
3. Vet reference
We have an application and phone interview process.
Adoption fee is usually $200-250 plus $50 health certificate charge and the transport fee which is paid to the transporter upon delivery of your pet.
All of our pets are quarantined a minimum of 2 weeks before being put on-line for adoption. They have been vetted which includes spay/neutering, age appropriate vaccinations, heartworm testing if over 6 mos., fecal w/deworming and started on flea and heartworm preventative and microchipped.
Our puppies have to have a minimum of 2 puppy shots before we have them spay/neutered and offered for adoption. We know the heartbreak and horror stories of puppies not being properly vaccinated and breaking with the deadly virus, Parvo, a couple of days after adopting and the new family being faced with the decision to euthanize their new puppy because they couldn't afford the $$$$ to treat it at the vet's.
So our policy is to hold on to our pups longer to hopefully prevent our clients the heartache & financial drain that this sometimes deadly virus can create.
