Our vision: A Georgia with no more homeless, neglected, and abused pets!

Our mission:

To rescue and re-home abused, neglected and homeless dogs and cats in metro Atlanta; to educate pet owners to properly care for their animals; and to reduce the number of feral cats and kittens through the humane practice of TNR (trap-neuter-return).

Chasing ghosts! Helping you type! Our furry felines will always keep you on your toes.

Each of our dogs has a special story that is sure to capture your heart.



100% of your tax-deductible donation goes to the care of our rescued pets! We have no facility, overhead, or staff expenses.

"Just browsing", but not quite ready for a forever pet? Have the time of your life fostering one of ours!
