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!”

Russell Madness moviegoers

Russell Madness

We had a wonderful morning at the #RussellMadness screening at Atlantic Station. We are so thankful to Fandango Family for inviting us to attend this special event to educate moviegoers about Jack Russells and spread the word about rescue. We met lots of wonderful families, savvy dog parents/bloggers and, of course, the lovely host, Mara Davis. We didn’t have a chance to watch the movie, but we heard it was great. It releases on Blu-Ray, DVD and Digital HD on March 10. Check it out!

Year in Review 2014: February

February was the month of love! Our dogs kissed so many folks at Smooch-a-Pooch and we, unfortunately, kissed our sweet Skip goodbye.
