MISSION

Hero Dog Rescue is a Georgia-based not for profit organization dedicated to saving abandoned, abused and neglected dogs from high kill shelters.  We believe that no animal should die without knowing a loving home.  To that end, through our 100% volunteer operated organization, we work with dogs of all breeds and ages and place them in loving foster homes.  While in our care, all dogs receive comprehensive medical and behavioral attention so they are ready to find their forever homes. 

 

Our organization is operated solely on donations from our compassionate supporters and requested in an ethical, honest, and transparent manner.
