Since May 2,2005, Alcovy Pet Rescue,Inc. has been a Georgia state-licensed,501(c) 3 Non-profit Organization. We are dedicated to the rescue of adoptable companion dogs, cats, and small animals in order to prevent needless euthanasia of these healthy animals. We believe that dogs and cats, as living creatures, are entitled to a quality of life with respect and compassion. Inasmuch as humans are responsible for having domesticated pets, we have a moral and ethical obligation to care for the dogs and cats, especially those we have domesticated who are abandoned, unwanted, or otherwise in need. We want to instill in our community an awareness of all the dogs and cats whose lives we share, to promote and encourage responsible dog/cat ownership and to stress the importance of spaying/neutering of all companion dogs and cats.
While we do take some owner surrenders on a case by case basis,we intake most of our animals from local metro Atlanta (kill shelters) Animal Controls. Shelter animals are not broken. They have simply experienced more life than than other pets. If they were human, we would call them wise. They would be the ones with tales to tell and stories to write……..ones dealt a bad hand who responded with courage. Don’t pity a shelter animal. Adopt one ! And be proud to have their greatness by your side.
