More about Perfect Pets Rescue.
In metro Atlanta, dogs and cats of all ages and breeds are turned in at county-run Animal Control facilities, abandoned, neglected or abused every day.
Some dogs and cats are turned in to us by owners who no longer want them, or who can no longer care for them. Usually, though, most owners in this situation turn their pets over to the county-run Animal Control facilities, and there is a 70 percent chance the dog will be euthanized. An owner surrendered older dog or and cat, or poorly-socialized purebreds, mixed breeds, and sick or injured dogs are usually euthanized immediately. The others might be put up for adoption, but with so many animals coming in each day, often there is no room to keep even the healthy, adoptable ones for very long in these shelters.
This is where Perfect Pets Rescue, Inc. steps in. We rescue most of our dogs from area shelters and once rescued, they are vaccinated, treated for intestinal and external parasites, spayed/neutered, heartworm tested, and microchipped. Many dogs need to get medical treatment beyond this.
All animals are fostered and get used to the "good life". Eventually, every dog is placed in the kind of home where it will never again know the fear and pain it has lived with most, if not all, of its life.
In time, an amazing transformation occurs. Their emotional, physical and spiritual wounds heal. Scared dogs are transformed into healthy, playful, affectionate pets. They learn to play. They learn to trust. They learn to live without fear or confusion. They become the pets they were meant to be and live the lives they were meant to live.
Please keep in mind that we are a small registered non-profit 501(c)(3) organization at this time, and can only rescue few dogs at a time. Volunteers willing to open their hearts and their homes to our rescue dogs are also crucial to our continued success. We want to express a heartfelt "thank you" to our foster homes that opened their heart and homes to one of our wonderful dogs. We couldn't do it without you guys!
