We are full!

We are currently at capacity and cannot rescue any more dogs until further notice. We are short-staffed on volunteers and need to take care of our senior, special needs and sanctuary dogs while working on adoptions for our adoptable dogs. When we are able to accommodate a dog, we will pull from local kill shelters. We apologize, but we are unable to make ANY exceptions at this time.


Are you looking to volunteer, adopt or foster? You can find the respective online forms here:

Third-Party Posts

We also can no longer post third-party/courtesy listings on our websites because of potential legal issues. If you have a dog you are trying to re-home, there are several online databases with good traffic designed solely for this purpose, including and our Facebook page, Georgia Jacks.

ALSO NOTE: Most rescues will not/cannot legally accept dogs who bite. If you are listing your dog elsewhere, please be very clear that the dog is fear-aggressive or aggressive.

Consider What You Are Doing

Please, consider what you are doing if you are looking to surrender a dog. This little soul depends entirely on you for survival. He is not expendable. (You would not give up your kid or your “inconvenient” elderly parents so easily, would you?) Unless circumstances are extensive, please consider being a responsible pet owner and keeping him in his home, where he belongs.

Training questions?

We do not have any certified dog trainers on our volunteer staff and, therefore, cannot legally dispense any type of training advice. We highly recommend reaching out to a qualified trainer before giving up and surrendering your Jack to any shelter or rescue. These are a few of the Atlanta area trainers who have donated their time to our rescue and whom we feel comfortable recommending. Please, contact them directly:

Please read the page before contacting us. It addresses many questions you may have, including owner surrenders, where you can list your dog, who to contact for training issues, and how to volunteer, foster or adopt. Thank you.
