Happy Anniversary, Katie!

Katie arrived at rescue in spring of 2011, looking as cute as can be. She was petite ’n sweet and was adopted within no time. She was gone for several months, but, unfortunately, things did not work out with the children in the home, so she was returned. She was starting to develop some serious skin allergies and other health issues, so we kept her to heal her up.

SweetWater Scrabble

Former GA JRT rescue, Ricky (that's him passed out on the right), and his friend, Isis Maria, recently indulged in an all-night board game marathon. Things got a little carried away ... and they took selfies. But now they're using that selfie to promote their favorite rescue in hopes of bringing home a $2,000 grant for vet bills.

We're Going ON the Grid!

We just launched a GivingGrid with a goal of raising $6,000 for the rescues by the end of next year. What's so cool about this? You can donate any amount, at any time, during the year and upload a fabulous photo of your own Jack(s) or even yourself to fill your square and share with others. Yes, we'll remind you about it periodically.

Happy New Year!

Make a toast, friends! What a year it's been! These are just a few of the moments that made 2015 such a great one. Thank you to all of the volunteers, fosters, adopted parents, and sponsors who make this rescue a reality everyday!


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!”
