SmallDog Rescue and Humane Society, Inc. (SDR) is a 501(c)(3) Georgia nonprofit charitable organizationtion dedicated to finding loving families for homeless dogs in Georgia.We rescue “at risk” dogs from local shelters and animal control facilities. “At risk” dogs are those who have run out of time at shelters, have medical conditions, or need more socialization before being placed in a home. We also rescue many highly adoptable small breeds – Chihuahuas, Shih Tzus, Pugs, Poodles, Dachshunds, Maltese, Terriers, Bichon Frises – it is a truly a myth that only mixed breeds end up homeless!
Our volunteers work to socialize our dogs and provide them with loving care. Through our foster homes, we assess the dogs in a home setting, allowing us to better understand the kind of home and family the dog will need.
Careful Placement: All applicants are thoroughly interviewed. We consider an applicant’s previous pet ownership history. We work hard to match the lifestyle and personality of the people to the temperament and energy level of the dog.We say “once an SDR dog, always an SDR dog.” We want to build lifelong relationships with our adopters and are always here for them to answer any questions and assist in any way we can.
Pet overpopulation in the United States is a very real problem. Every year, in Metro Atlanta alone, 90,000 dogs and cats are euthanized, simply because they have no place to go. We believe that these dogs shouldn’t die simply because they are homeless.
Saving lives and finding forever homes happens only with the support of people like you. Our mission is supported by our donors, adopters, sponsors, and friends. Through donations, we can ensure that every dog that comes into our care is made happy and healthy until an adoptive home is found.
