The place is located in the green, rolling hills of Georgia, where we provide sanctuary and rehabilitation for giant breed dogs and other vulnerable companion animals. In addition to our rescue efforts, we provide grassroots community education and outreach and support for existing animal welfare efforts.
DIY and building projects
This is an opportunity to gain hands-on experience in non-profit management while making a real difference in the lives of rescued animals. The place is located in a small, close-knit community, but is minutes from a major interstate that provides easy access to Atlanta and Augusta.
