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.

Lily & Mike Goldstein

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

Joy Cauthen

“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.”

Jeana Nolen

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