Pets at Our Rescue Group:

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 west central Georgia.
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 300+ 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.

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 in 2012 expanded the area we offer our pets as a result of the wonderful pet transport company we use that 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.

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.
