Based in McDuffie County, GA & run by our director, Maria Salvaggio. We are a volunteer based rescue that pulls dogs and cats from surrounding kill shelters to give them a second chance at life. We save approx. over 1000 animals every year. Our rescue is a large farm that allows a kennel free environment for all our furry friends. We do not adopt in state- instead, we transport to New Jersey and other northern states monthly for adoption events. All of our animals are temperament tested, vaccinated appropriately, and given a certificate of health to leave the state of Georgia by our licensed veterinarian.
The first step in our adoption process is applying with our online adoption application. This gives us a screening and a good look into you, your family, and your lifestyle. It is extremely important the application is read thoroughly and answered to the best of your ability. IF YOU RENT: as stated clearly on the application, your application WILL NOT BE processed if our team does not receive either a letter of consent from your landlord OR a copy of the pet policy in your lease. Either document must be emailed to [email protected]. The next step is a volunteer reaching out to you either via phone call or email with follow up inquiries. If your application is approved, we will ask if you want to participate in our pre-adopt program. Our pre-adopt program allows you to commit to your chosen dog, sight unseen, by placing a $200 NONREFUNDABLE deposit that will be credited to your overall adoption fee. If you chose not to pre-adopt, we can not promise that the dog you are applying for will still be available for adoption come the scheduled adoption event. From there, our volunteers will coordinate pickup and paying adoption fees.
