Where are you located?
We are located on an acreage in Conyers, Georgia, which is about 30 miles east of Atlanta. We do not list our location publicly to protect the dogs. We will arrange a date and time for visitation during the pre-approval process interview.
What are your hours?
We are not a business location, so we do not have set hours. Our owner works like the rest of us, so weekends and evenings are preferred. Sometimes, we can arrange for a volunteer to meet you during the weekday, if it’s the only possibility. We will arrange a visitation time and date during the pre-approval process.
Are you a 501(3)c organization?
Yes, are we. You may claim any donations made to us on your taxes.
Do you receive money from the local, state or federal government?
Not a single penny. This is a rumor many people believe to be true about non-profit animal groups. We rely entirely on donations from individuals and businesses. We do not receive any type of funding from the government.
Where can I view your adoptable dogs?
You can view them right here on our website on the Our Dogs page. You can sort by sex, age and special needs. Please, note that not all of our dogs are adoptable at this time. Some of them have behavioral issues that must be addressed (no funding for training right now) before they can go to new homes. They can, however, be sponsored.
How do I adopt?
Do I need to have a fence? Is there a home check?
Yes to both. Many of our guys and gals have arrived here throughout the years because they like to roam and weren’t properly “contained.” We do make exceptions on occasion, but really prefer a fence. Whenever possible, we also do home checks to make sure the environment is right for our rescues.
Why did you change your name recently?
We have mostly been known for rescue and adoption in the past, but as some of our rescues get older and out of adoption range, we are becoming more of a sanctuary now.
