Fall Vol Day 2016

Today marked another amazing vol day. They just keep getting better, each and every time. This time, we had both an amazing group of Emory volunteers out, along with members of our regular Team Russell, to get the job done. The weather was perfect. The chili was amazing. The camaraderie, exercise and TLC for the dogs? Beyond fabulous!

Penny's Peeps

There is nothing that makes us happier than seeing the right dog find the right home, even if it takes awhile ... Well, actually there is something we love more -- amazing parents who keep us updated!


We love our dogs … and it shows.

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.

I would never wish for a dog to have a long stay in rescue, but this time it worked out in our favor. We just love Georgia and are so grateful to GA JRT Rescue for saving her and housing her long enough for her to find her way into our hearts and our home!

Andy filled a void in our lives and completed our family. We are so grateful to Ga JRT Rescue for finding Andy and taking such good care of him until he found his forever home with us in Loganville, just around the corner from the ranch!
