Our Mission

Where the Wild Things Are Rescue is a 501(c)3 non-profit rescue, who utilizes fosters and volunteers to rehabilitate and find forever families for sweet, loving, adoptable dogs from the south and beyond. Founded in Augusta, GA in 2020. We rescue the lost, the abused, the neglected and abandoned with a specialty in handling guardian breeds (Pit Bulls, Rottweilers, Mastiffs, Shepard’s and beyond…) however, we hold no preference towards who we rescue and provide a safe haven for all breeds. Our mission is to save all Wild Things in need!

When we commit to rescuing a dog, we make sure the dog is well cared for and properly vetted. We spay/neuter, vaccinate, test for heart-worm, provide flea and heart-worm preventative, and deworm at our experienced veterinary partner locations. We treat illnesses before adoption, most often heart-worm, but have also treated PARVO and distemper, and provided for necessary surgeries for dogs with serious injuries. The dogs stay in local fosters or boarding for at least 2 weeks or until they are healthy enough to travel.

On top of rescuing we educate and encourage our community to be a responsible pet guardian by promoting and supporting the spaying and neutering of your fur kids to help stop the spread of further lost or abandoned wild things throughout the CSRA area. When a Wild Thing is rescued, they immediately go into foster homes where they get training and experience living in a home environment before adoption. That means they are taken into a home and get to live among a family and their pets to be socialized safely. Some of the lucky ones even get adopted upon arrival! We want all our dogs to be in the best possible adoptive home, so we are diligent in finding the right match. Our thorough process includes personal references, a veterinary references, a home visit and annual follow up. As an all-volunteer, non-profit 501c3 organization, all of our resources go directly to rescuing, rehabilitating, and re-homing our Wild Things. It takes a lot of resources, money, time, space, and brainpower to rescue responsibly and we can use all the help we can get. If you would like to foster or, volunteer your time and skills, or donate funds or goods, please let us know. It takes a loving community of dedicated people to save these deserving dogs and we welcome your help.
