May's recovery is going so well, she is almost back to full puppy-hood! She is going on long walks with her foster siblings, can go up and down stairs and walk on all flooring surfaces. Although not yet spayed, we are ready to interview those who are interested in fostering-to-adopt this brave soul until the time she is ready to be spayed, after which her adoption can be completed. If you are interested in such an arrangement, complete our online application and come meet May, our wonder dog!

About Our Rescue
Our mission is to find loving permanent homes for abandoned and surrendered German Shepherd Dogs in Atlanta and surrounding areas. All of our beautiful German Shepherd Dogs have been rescued from area shelters or surrendered by their former owners. They are currently living full-time with foster families in the Atlanta area until permanent homes can be found.
All of our dogs are examined by a veterinarian, up to date on their vaccinations, checked for heartworm disease and treated if needed, and either spayed or neutered prior to adoption. All of these dogs have spent time with their foster families training to learn basic commands as well as leash walking. Almost all our dogs. with the exception of young puppies, are housebroken and crate trained.
For all our dogs, spending time in a foster home rather than a shelter allows for socialization of the dogs with new people and other dogs. This helps us to understand the dog's personality and temperament. Knowing and living with our foster dogs on a day to day basis allows our foster families to determine what type of home would be best-suited for their individual foster dog.
Our foster homes have no more than one to three foster dogs at one time, so our dogs do truly live "as part of a family". All our foster dogs also spend a minimum of two weeks, usually more in their foster home so they can be observed for any undetected health or behavioral problems as well as get adjusted to "family life" again.
A $350 adoption donation is requested, primarily to offset the costs of providing veterinary care and sterilization for our rescued dogs.
