Sheltie Rescue of Georgia Inc.

Locust Grove, GA

Our Mission

Sheltie Rescue of Ga., Inc. is a non-profit organization, composed solely of volunteers, dedicated to saving Shetland Sheepdogs (Shelties) who have been surrendered by their owners, neglected, abused, or are strays. Established in 1994, SRG is the oldest and most respected organization of its kind in Georgia. We have placed more than 1100 dogs into permanent homes.

"Rescued" Shelties come in all ages, colors, sizes and personalities. Rarely do we have puppies under the age of (one) 1 year old.

Potential new homes are thoroughly pre-screened. With most Shelties, we require a fenced yard and must see children under the age of five interact with the dog prior to the adoption.

All applicants must submit an Online Adoption Application in oder to be considered to adopt one of our available dogs. Once your application is received, we will contact the veterinarian you list as a reference for their input. Please make sure to advise them we will be calling and give them permission to release information to us. After we've spoken with your vet, one of our volunteers will do a screening interview with you to get a feel for your family as a potential home for one of our Shelties, to get an understanding of what you are looking for in a companion, and to try to d
