Sheltie Rescue of GA, Inc. is a non-profit organization, composed solely of volunteers, dedicated to saving Shetland Sheepdogs (Shelties) who have been surrendered by their owners, neglected, abused, or are strays. Established in 1994, SRGA is the oldest and most respected organization of its kind in Georgia. We have placed more than 1500 dogs into permanent homes.
All applicants must submit an Online Adoption Application in order to be considered to adopt one of our available dogs. Once your application is received, we will contact the references you provide us for their input: the veterinarian(s) you list and your family friend. Please make sure to advise them we will be calling and give them permission to release information to us. After we've spoken with your references, one of our volunteers will do a screening interview with you to get a feel for your family as a potential home for one of our Shelties, to get an understanding of what you are looking for in a companion, and to try to determine the Sheltie we have that would best fit into your environment. There are no guarantees that all applicants will be approved and no guarantees that the dog you request will be the one with whom you are matched. Our goal is to find the best possible home for the animals in our care, not necessarily to put them in the first home that is interested.
