About Us

Long story short

Athens Canine Rescue is a non-profit organization of foster homes in Athens, Georgia. We have no shelter facility and we rely upon a network of foster homes to house our dogs until they are placed in permanent, happy homes of their own. ACR only takes in dogs that are friendly, companion animals. As rescue dogs, ACR pups have often been neglected by previous owners and rarely arrive impeccably trained though they are very trainable!  Whether young or adult, ACR dogs are invariably loving, willing to please and incredibly grateful.
