About Our Rescue Group...
Mush Rescue, a nonprofit organization, is dedicated to the rescue and placement of Siberian Huskies. Based in Metro Atlanta, Mush Rescue was founded in 2008 to help displaced Siberians in the community and surrounding areas.
Mush Rescue is not a shelter with visiting hours. We are comprised of a network of foster homes run entirely by volunteers. Our chapter directors, officers and trustees are also volunteers. What brings us together is our love for Siberians and the desire to help these displaced animals find forever homes.
As a nonprofit, federally tax-exempt 501(c)3 organization, our expenses are funded entirely by adoption fees and donations. We rely on the generosity of others who, like us, understand and admire the complexity of this unique and highly intelligent breed, and who want to help combat the effects of pet overpopulation in our community.
The Siberian Husky is an extremely smart but often misunderstood breed, which is why so many end up in rescue. Their high energy and need for mental and physical stimulation require an owner who is willing to put a great deal of time and effort into their care. Because of this, Siberians are not recommended for the first-time dog owner.
