Welcome to Releash Atlanta

Releash Atlanta

Releash Atlanta is a 501c3, not for profit, 100% volunteer run, GA Department of Agriculture licensed charitable organization that works tirelessly to save dogs from high kill shelters throughout the state of Georgia.

We receive pleas for help around the clock, 7 days a week for desperate dogs in need of help. These dogs are often loving, happy family pets that end up behind bars through no fault of their own. We dedicate our lives and resources to saving these souls. We operate 100% on the donations we receive from the public, and every penny of those donations go directly to the dogs in our care, or to the ones that soon will be. We have no paid employees and never will, so you can donate knowing your gift is going to save a life, not to a salary! 

Once dogs are in our care, they are immediately rushed to a vet to be thoroughly examined, vaccinated, heartworm tested, microchipped, spayed/neutered, and ultimately treated for whatever ailments they present with. Once they're healthy, they head to their foster home where they hang out with our awesome foster families until a loving forever home is found!  

We save all breeds from Yorkies and Shih Tzus, Pit Bulls and Doberman Pinscers to mutts large and small! If a dog is in need, we are here to help and do as much as we can with the resources we have. 

We also assist 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 request. 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 support breeders or petstores.

We stand ready to help the community 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! Please consider joining our team as a foster familiy!! WE NEED YOU!

We think every home needs at least one dog! And we believe that dog should be adopted from a local shelter or rescue! Don't agree?

We are here to find your next best friend through a local animal shelter or rescue group, and we do it all for free!
