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!”

Whole Lotta Fun at Whole Foods

“We’ve got sunshine … on a cloudy day … When it’s cold outside, we’ve got the month of May …” Rain, schmain! It didn’t stop any of us from heading out Saturday morning and enjoying the day at Whole Foods Market Buckhead.

Although Thanksgiving is over, we are still very thankful. For what, you might ask? So many things, but especially … drum roll, please … another successful adoption! This time, our little Sasha has found her forever home.

Kennedy Project: Mission Accomplished

Happy Thanksgiving! We are thankful for so many things today, but especially for all of you. Because of your concern and generosity, we surpassed our original fundraising goal for Kennedy in just a matter of days! Not only did we raise enough for his wheelchair and laser treatments/pain medications, he will be getting a much-needed dental/extractions and some paw protectors. We've said it before and we'll say it again -- we could not do this without you.
