Helping save lives, one soul at a time. 

     Welcome! We are a small 501(c)3 non-profit rescue located in Acworth GA that helps pets in our community through “SAAVE” (Save, Alter, Adopt, Vaccinate and Educate) programs. We do not receive federal or state grants to help with our efforts. 

     We hope you find the information on this site helpful. Our goal is not only to save lives but to educate and assist when we can. Your love and support make that happen. Thank you so much! Your dedication to us has made it possible to help with many situations where the animals desperately needed human help and were out of time and options. Please take some time to look through our site. There are many things to be involved in and to help better our organization help more lives.
