Adopt a GARD Dog!


Adopt a GARD dog!Georgia Animal Rescue and Defence, Inc. helps homeless animals find the loving homes they deserve.  If you are interested in adopting one of the pets below, please complete the online adoption application to the right or email us at with any questions.  If emailing us about a particular dog, please put the dog's name in the subject line of your email.  Please allow us up to 48 hours to respond to your email.

Once you are approved, please complete an online adoption contract to the right.  You may then pay the adoption fee online to the right, or you can pay us via check in person or by mail.  Our adoption fee varies depending on the dog and the circumstances (i.e., extensive medical treatment).  Most adoption fees range between $100 and $400.   Please inquire about each dog individually.   Our transports to the Northeast require an additional $100 to $150.  You may also choose to pay to have your dog flown to you.  We fly out of Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport.

CATS : Unfortunately GARD currently does not have the facilities to properly house and care for cats.  If you have a cat that needs to be rehomed, you can bring it to our mobile adoptions to try to find a new home for it.  The following requirements apply: cats over 4 months must have their rabies shot, cats must be feline leukemia negative (if a litter, the mother or one kitten must be tested).  Veterinary paperwork must be brought as proof.  GARD does feed several feral cat colonies and operates a TNR (Trap-Neuter-Release) program (which includes spaying) for these colonies.  Any donations towards these efforts to help our cats is much appreciated.
