All of our wonderful, adoptable cats and dogs come fully vetted, and spayed or neutered. An application and home check is required for all pets adopted from us. Our adoption fees are:
* $125 for cats and kittens (or $225 for two cats or kittens)
* $195 for dogs and puppies
Southern Animal Rescue was founded in November 2008 by sisters Kristin McKnight and Lauren McKnight, Chamblee Abernethy, and John Rigney. Leslie Curry and Liz Kroll, long-time animal rescuers, joined our team in early 2010. We are animal lovers and advocates, and all have cats and dogs of our own, as well as regularly foster rescued animals.
Our mission is to rescue and re-home abused, neglected and homeless dogs and cats in metro-Atlanta, to educate pet owners to properly care for their animals and to reduce the number of feral cats and kittens through the humane practice of TNR (trap-neuter-return).
We are active and vocal advocates for abused and abandoned pets in our local communities and with our State law makers. We believe that rescue alone will never save enough lives nor bring about a long-term solution to Georgia's pet overpopulaton crisis. In all that we do, we strive to create communities where, one day in the not-so-distant future, our rescue work is no longer required.
We are a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization and run by all non-paid volunteers. Your donations go directly toward veterinary care for the animals we rescue. Since November 2008, we have:
* rescued over 200 cats, kittens, dogs and puppies
* successfully trapped and released over 50 feral cats
* managed and cared for four feral cats colonies around Atlanta
