Without Donna and the GA JRT family, we would never have found a dog like Carson.  Their commitment to rescuing, rehabilitating, and genuinely helping their dogs learn to trust again is a gift to all of us, and we feel lucky to be a part of the always-expanding family.


” Penny is a delight. I can’t imagine our life without her … Thank you, Mama Donna, for saving this girl for us!”


“I’m so thankful to everyone at rescue who worked together to save and care for Fancy to give her a second chance in our home. I am so blessed to be part of this amazing group and to be able to work with these wonderful dogs – and people – everyday.”


“We will never be able to thank Donna and the rescue enough for saving these 2 precious babies for us!”

Ernie Gets Adopted

Ernie Goes Home

We’ve been sitting on some great news for four days and now we can no longer hold it in: Ernie, the Mighty Snake Killer is now Ernie, the Mighty Forever Man! Yes, after being dumped at the shelter with his big brother, Bert, during Christmas week last year and waiting patiently while Bert moved north a couple of months ago and found his forever home, Ernie now has a family to call his own … and what a wonderful family it is!

Kennedy's Next Steps

We'd love to share an update on Kennedy. As you may remember, this beautiful boy was diagnosed with degenerative arthritis of the spine a few months ago. He's now in foster care and receiving additional evaluations, laser treatments, and drug therapies.
