Who We Are

ACAP is dedicated to the welfare of animals in need. We wish that we had the resources to help everyone who needs to find a new home for their dog/cat, but sadly we are a small group with limited human and fiscal resources.

If you need to find a home for your pet, we suggest that you contact SPOT. The web site is There is a link there with information on placing your pet.

We are a state-licensed, 501 (c) (3) non-profit corporation. We are an all-volunteer canine rescue organization located in the metro Atlanta area.

Our mission is to find loving homes for the deserving animals in our care and to provide community education to promote responsible pet ownership.

Adopting a friend

We are volunteers with full-time jobs, so please allow 24 - 48 hours for response to your inquiry.

The standard ACAP adoption process is as follows:

Please note that we fund the medical care, food and boarding costs from our own pockets. We are not subsidized by any state or national programs. The adoption fee marginally covers what we have spent in the case of a healthy dog. For those requiring surgery, dentals or other special procedures, our costs far exceed the adoption fee. We occasionally discount the fee on a case by case basis.

There are instances, particularly in the case of young puppies who cannot be released to their new homes right away, where we may request a non-refundable deposit. Unfortunately, this was implemented after several individuals completed the application process, other applicants were turned away, and these individuals "changed their mind" leaving the dog in question without a new home.

We Sure Could Use Your Help!

Since we are a volunteer, non-profit rescue organization, we are funded solely by the donations of selfless individuals wanting to do their part to ensure that our dogs get the care that they deserve. The adoption fees we receive are not comparable to the money we spend on food and medical care, so any and all donations are greatly appreciated. For tax-deductible monetary donations, simply click one of the two links below or send by mail to the address listed at the bottom of this page. To see how your donations will be put into use, visit our Sad Tails page

We also glady accept other donations such as pet beds, towels, blankets, crates, kennels, doghouses, leashes, collars, toys, treats, food, flea treatment (Frontline, Advantage, etc.), heartworm preventative, food & water dishes and vet services.
Our animals are fostered in homes or a rescue shelter.
