Welcome to Releash Atlanta

Releash Atlanta is a 501c3 not for profit charitable organization with intentions to increase the adoption rates in Atlanta by:

1) Assisting families that want to adopt, but find going to a shelter sad, difficult or overwhelming, by using our shelter/rescue network and contacts to find the type of dog you requested, for you. You tell us what you want and we do the legwork. By providing this service and making adoption easier, we hope to place rescue dogs with families that would otherwise not adopt.

2) Providing a resource for over 40 local Atlanta rescue organizations to get more exposure for the dogs in their programs through our multi rescue events and social media campaign.

3) Giving families that need to give up their dogs a place to turn by putting them on our social media campaigns, facilitating "meet and greets", determining good homes by utilizing our adoption application and ultimately helping to keep these family pets out of the already inundated high-kill shelter.

Releash Atlanta is 100% volunteer run and we stand ready to help the community, the potential adoptive home and the potential foster home find a companion that will thrive as a part of their family. We are here to assist them as well as our rescue partners in every way possible throughout the adoption process and will continue to be a resource after they have welcomed their new family member.

We strive to make Atlanta a better place for our homeless pets, our rescue partners and shelters as well as all of the loving, adoptive homes out there!
