"German Shepherd Dog Rescue Group of Georgia, Inc. is a state licensed, incorporated, non-profit rescue organization established in March 2004. Our mission is to find loving permanent homes for abandoned and surrendered German Shepherd Dogs in Atlanta and surrounding areas.
Our rescue does not have a shelter facility, instead we utilize volunteer foster homes to care for our dogs until their adoption. We have several foster homes located around Metro Atlanta and the north Georgia area.
All donations to this rescue are tax deductible.
100% of your donations benefit our rescue dogs. Our group members volunteer their time and efforts to this rescue without compensation."
