Refuge Rescue

… is a volunteer-based 501(c)3 charity and dog rescue group founded in August of 2015. We rescue dogs of all breed and all ages. Our organization is located in Woodstock, Georgia and we adopt our dogs to pre-approved homes in all areas. 

Our Mission is

… to save responsibly as many dogs as we can from high kill shelters and to find them forever homes.

… to educate the public about animals in high kill shelter throughout Georgia and the responsibilities involved with pet ownership, such as spay/neuter, heartworm and flea prevention, and vaccines.

Contact us today at (678) 250-DOGS (3647).

Featured Dog Leela

Leela is a 4-year old and well-behaved dog who has been with Refuge Rescue for several months. She currently lives at our kennel facility but would love to have her own home. She loves to be around people and with a proper introduction, she gets along with dogs. 

Leela loves nothing more than to go on walks and lean up against you for attention and stomach rubs. Please consider adopting Leela. And if you don’t have the space open, maybe you can foster her temporarily until her forever family finds her. Click here to learn more about Leela.
