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.

How can I make a donation?

Please visit our general donation page. (Your donation is tax-deductible and you will receive a letter with our Tax ID number and information.) If you would like to donate to or sponsor a specific dog, you can do so by viewing their profile.

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?

Visit this page for full information; then download and complete the adoption application form. FAX or email it back to us. We will follow up with your vet and references, then give you a call to discuss any other questions and/or make arrangements for you to come meet your new sweetheart.

How much is the adoption fee?

Our adoption fee is $250. This fee covers spaying/neutering, shots, chip, shelter pull fee and/or any other costs associated with rescue. Many of our dogs spend months with us before getting adopting; suffice to say, we do not make any money off of them.

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.

I can’t adopt or make a donation right now. What are some other ways I can help besides a donation?

There are plenty! We always need volunteers around the rescue ranch to clean kennels, walk/play with dogs and repair things. You may also apply to be a foster.

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.
