Georgia Peaches are young dogs and puppies from Georgia who need a forever home! They are highly adoptable dogs—many of which were scheduled for euthanasia at high kill shelters. Their ages range from 8 weeks to 1 year. While we focus on Georgia and hope to expand to other areas of the South one day, we believe that a "Georgia Peach" puppy really stand for a disadvantaged puppy from anywhere in the world that is in need of rescue.
Question: Why Georgia?
Answer: Georgia Peach Puppy Rescue addresses the needs of a sub population of young dogs in a state that is over populated due to spay/neuter issues. In the Southeast US, there is a surplus of puppies and it is not uncommon for entire puppy litters to be euthanized. The shelters in Georgia are often crowded due to dog overpopulation as well as owner surrenders, and because of that the euthanasia rate is high.
Question: Why would you bring puppies from Georgia—don’t we have lots of them here in Seattle?
Answer: Puppies are something we do NOT have a surplus of in Seattle. Because we generally adhere to spay and neuter laws, there are less accidental litters. A family that wants a rescue puppy has a challenge on their hands. Some give up the quest and ultimately turn to breeders. Georgia Peaches Puppy Rescue aims to give homeless puppies that have been on death row or are unwanted, a chance to come get adopted in the dog loving Pacific Northwest. And in turn, these Georgia Peach puppies give locals here in Seattle the option to bypass a breeder and make a choice to support puppy rescue!
