About Us

Southern Comfort Animal Rescue, Inc. is 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization that rescues and rehomes abused, unwanted and abandoned companion animals.

Southern Comfort was founded in 2001 in Savannah, Georgia, to provide shelter and find temporary foster or permanent homes for pets left behind when troops in nearby Ft. Stewart's 3rd Infantry Division shipped out to Iraq and Afghanistan.

In 2006, the organization moved to Glenwood, Georgia. Southern Comfort fills a critical need in Wheeler County, which has no other rescues or animal control.

We specialize in physical, social and emotional rehabilitation of our rescues. All animals are examined, vaccinated, spayed or neutered and receive any and all medical treatment before being placed in carefully screened forever homes.

Southern Comfort is a "no-kill" rescue and only euthanizes in cases of irremediable suffering or vicious and dangerous animals.

We also work to raise public awareness of the plight of homeless animals and promote the benefits of adopting an animal in need through community outreach and education.

Southern Comfort Animal Rescue is a 501c3 (not-for-profit) organization. We exist because of the generous donations of our supporters. There are many ways, both monetary and otherwise, that you can help us in our mission to help homeless animals find loving forever homes.

Monetary Donations
SoCo Rescue gladly accepts any new or used building materials. We are always looking to improve the housing quality of our rescue animals and will use whatever we can obtain. Currently, we employ the use of our home as a means to house many of our animals. While we can not boast about having a big, beautiful facility, we do take great pride in providing our rescued pets with the very best in vet care and much love. Please consider making a monetary or material donation to help us continue to provide the very best for our rescued animals.

If you would prefer to donate by mail, send to: Southern Comfort Animal Rescue, 1484 N. Hwy 19., Glenwood, GA 30428.

Here's how using the iGive link can help SoCo:

iGive really is as simple as it sounds. iGive members can generate donations by shopping at any of our 900+ stores. There are no costs, obligations, nor any hidden fees.

iGive is a free service to causes and members. SHOPPING: It's all automatic! You don't need to enter any codes, notify the store, or iGive. When iGive members shop via our special links (starting at the web site, the iGive Newsletter, or having installed the iGive Button, tracking enables us to identify the purchases of each individual iGive member with a member ID number. Causes always receive 100% of the donation amount which is advertised on our web site ( receives fees separately from the amounts that go to the cause).

You shop the same way as you would without starting at iGive. When you do start with iGive, our stores automatically send us the needed information (order amount, order date, and your ID number which identifies the user to but is meaningless to the online store) so that we can track the donation to each member's designated cause. When you successfully link to an iGive store, your visit will be immediately visible in the You recently visited box.

Here's all you have to do:

1. Click on the link above.
2. Use iGive to browse sites that you normally use, like Expedia,, Barnes & Noble, PETCO, & many more. SoCo will get $0.01 for each qualifying browse.
3. When you make a purchase through any of the hundreds of sites, listed with iGive, SoCo will receive a percentage of your purchase and at NO cost to you.
It's that easy and, again, at no cost to you. The merchants pay the donations. So please add iGive and help SoCo Rescue.
