Hannah Needs Our Help

Hannah needs our help. We've said it before and, unfortunately, we're saying it again. But we love her, and we'll ask again and again, if we have to. Let's hope we don't have to after this time.

Rocky enjoyed a “Day Away” today with his staff pick, Kim. This boy has been with us for way, way too long and we never understand why. He’s so amazing, sweet and smart.

Summer Vol Day Splash

We came, we saw, we sweated, but … we got stuff done. Everyone was ready to get down ’n dirty and do what needed to be done for the dogs today at Summer Vol Day on Saturday.

A Tribute to Jackie

It was with very heavy hearts that we said goodbye to one of our long-time sanctuary sweethearts this morning. Not a lot of people "knew" Jackie—even the volunteers who come to rescue every week—because she was an indoor dog ... and that’s what made her so special. Over the last four years, she had become one of our own.
Sweet Cream Donation

Sweet Dreams are Made of This

We just wanted to give a very special shout out to Sweet Cream Co. of Columbia, South Carolina. They recently surprised us with an amazing donation check of $315 for the sales of their doggie pops in March and April.

Foster to Adopt? Our fave opp!

Our little lamb Barkley has moved from his medical foster home to his new (possibly permanent) foster home. Yay! For those wondering if fostering before adoption is a possibility, absolutely! We actually prefer this route to adoption. It’s a great experience for the dogs and the adopters all around.
There were so many great items in this year's silent auction -- all donated by wonderful sponsors with all proceeds going to the dogs.

Another Fabulous Fundraiser!

Last night was our 3rd Annual Paw Over Some Jack and Chow Down fundraiser, our “big” fundraiser with Chap's Chow Rescue at Plants Creative Landscapes' warehouse in Decatur. Thank you to everyone who came out (despite the heat) to support the rescues. Everyone was having such a great time, we even went beyond our usual 9 o’clock cutoff time. Thank you to all of our sponsors, volunteers and, of course, attendees for making this another great year that went to the dogs … literally!

Join us for our 3rd annual fundraiser for Chap’s Chow Rescue and Georgia Jack Russell Rescue, Adoption & Sanctuary this Saturday, June 13, in Decatur. It's an event not to be missed! Food, drinks, live music, silent auction, raffles, wine wall and cool giveaways.


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!”
