Frequently Asked Questions
What is Saving Georgia Dogs?
Saving Georgia Dogs, Inc. (SGD) is an all-volunteer, nonprofit 501(c) 3 animal welfare organization & licensed rescue in Georgia. We save dogs every day on death row in high- kill shelters throughout Georgia with an emphasis on shelters using the gas chamber as a method of euthanization. Our motto is " No Dog Left Behind." We believe all dogs deserve a chance at life which is why we try and pull in order of who's next to die. We pull, board, vet & rehabilitate dogs & help get them placed in loving forever homes. Through the generosity of people like you, we've saved countless dogs since we began in July 2006!

Do you adopt your dogs to private individuals?
We hope to begin holding adoption days at local locations in GA but at present we only occasionally adopt to individuals. Currently we pull, board, vet & the then transport the majority of our dogs to our pre-approved, no-kill receiving rescues (which are located primarily in the Northeast) where they are placed in loving forever homes. Each receiving partner we work with must meet our stringent requirements.

How can I help?
SGD always welcomes & needs help! We're looking for people who love dogs & can volunteer to help with transport, fostering, fundraising & much more! If you're interested in helping, please contact us at
