Joel

The door opened and... We could see him, but he couldn't see us. Joel's whole body was matted, and his face was tangled with painful burrs that were making it difficult for him to see. He needed immediate care. Our Shelter Medicine Team carefully groomed Joel and cleaned his infected ears and dirty teeth. After [...]

Rescued Poodles

UPDATE: One of the Standard Poodles has already been adopted, and the other two are finishing up treatment for their ear infections after receiving a much-needed grooming. Don't they look great?! After one of their owners passed away and the other was diagnosed with cancer, these poodles needed somewhere to go. Their care had become [...]

Levi

Levi's previous owner didn't know what to do. She brought him to us begging for help, and we knew that this little guy still had some fight left in him. His back legs are partially paralyzed, which makes it impossible for him to run and play like a normal dog. He drags his injured legs [...]

Dabble

Our friends at a tiny animal rescue in Irwinton, GA reached out to ask a big favor... they weren't sure what was the matter with a little puppy in their care, but they knew something wasn't right. He couldn't bear any weight on his front left leg, and it seemed to cause him [...]

40 Dogs Rescued from Puppy Mill

Today, our Animal Cruelty Unit brought 40 severely neglected dogs to Atlanta from a puppy mill situation in south Georgia. All 40 animals will need extensive medical evaluation and care, and many are matted head-to-toe and suffering from heartworm disease and other illnesses. The dogs range in age from 7 months to twelve years, and [...]

Toby

As soon as he entered our care, we knew something wasn't right with little Toby. One of his front legs caught the attention of our Shelter Medicine Team, and they soon realized why this little guy was having trouble walking. They carefully examined him and realized that this tiny puppy had a severe [...]

Eloise

We heard tiny, desperate meows coming from a small crate that had been dropped off in front of our Admissions department and immediately rushed to see what was inside. Much to our surprise, we found two tiny kittens that needed love and care. Upon closer inspection, one of the two kittens was screaming [...]

Shelley

Shelley was one of 32 dogs rescued from severe neglect. They were living in their own filth without any access to much-needed Veterinary care. As soon as we saw Shelley, we knew she was in some of the worst shape imaginable. Her tiny, frail body was matted from head to toe, and she could barely [...]

Abigail

Abigail was rescued from a cruel and neglectful situation in Murray County, GA. She and 77 other dogs were living in squalor with dirty water, little food, and no access to much-needed medical care. Your support allowed us to bring these sweet souls back to Atlanta. Sweet Abigail was covered head to toe [...]

Petunia

Her face should have been soft, bright white, and hopeful. Instead, she was tinged brown, fleas crawling all around in her matted fur, and her eyes were pleading for help. Perhaps for the first time, Petunia was safe. And she would soon know what it felt like to be cared for and truly loved.  Our [...]
