About Our Rescue Group:

Animal Rescue of Northwest Georgia is a non profit, no-kill organization dedicated to improving the lives of dogs, cats & people in Georgia by rescuing unwanted, abandoned and special needs dogs and cats; treating, vaccinating, spaying/ neutering them; and then placing them in carefully screened and loving homes.

We believe we have a lifelong obligation to every animal that comes to us, which is why we try to make the best possible placement of each animal to the right person.

The Buckhead branch of Animal Rescue League of NW Georgia operates out of the Atlanta area.

Our Adoption Process:

In order to adopt, you will complete an application form and be interviewed in person to ensure the best match of adopter and pet is achieved. An adoption fee is charged to support our rescue efforts.

All dogs are spayed or neutered, given age-appropriate vaccinations, dewormed, treated for fleas, and if old enough, tested for heartworms and given their initial dose(s) of heartworm preventatives.

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.
