Thanks to those who donated for her vet care and to her foster peeps, May's recovery is going so well, she is almost back to full puppy-hood! This girl has come a long way from the broken puppy she was when she was brought into rescue. Now she goes on long walks with her foster siblings, and, even more miraculously, goes up and down stairs and can walk on all flooring surfaces with barely the trace of a limp. Sweet as sugar, she is housebroken and will be fully vetted by the time she is adopted. Although she is not yet spayed, we are ready to interview those who are interested in adopting this brave soul whom her foster dad says has the heart of a lion. If you have fallen in love with this pup (as we have), 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.
The Alpharetta Public Safety Foundation is sponsoring the K-9 5K Foot Chase on Thursday, October 18th at 7:00 PM. The race begins at the Alpharetta City Hall, and all are welcome, including children, families, and of course, dogs - big or small!
Come support a worthy cause and enjoy a cool autumn night, running with the big dogs (the police)!
