Thank you for your message.  Miki (Tessa) is doing great!  Within 24 hours my husband and I both said she seemed as though she had always lived with us.  It was amazing how she just settled right in and “took over!”  Two of the cats scattered and hid but the third (the oldest) just sat and looked at him.  She took to him right away.  See the attached picture of her and Kimba napping.  Sierra has adopted her and they nap together all the time – also see attached photo of the two of them!  She knew her new name within an hour and she seems house broken from the beginning, going to the door and then looking back like saying “let me out please.”  She zooms to the yard, does her thing and zooms back like she might be missing something.  She plays and plays and then just drops for a nap and then up and playing again.  The other two cats took about three days and now just ignore her.  She did develop a cough within 24 hours by Tuesday afternoon and we took her to the vet Read »

GatsbyLook how beautifully Gatsby has grown up (formerly Sirius Black).  Thank you all again!

DSC00351I first ran across Misha when a neighbor was fostering her. I fell in love when I saw her walking ever so shyly on her leash. But, it was a good 3 weeks before I got up the courage to go to APR…..I was not planning on adopting another dog. This timid, pathetically shy sweetie pie sat in the corner just cowering as if to say, “Please don’t pick me…oh no, they spotted me..” She ran way 3 times in the first week (out of a bricked courtyard!)….always ending up at her foster mom’s house 1/2 mile away. Now she will stay by my side for hours on end. 6 months after adopting her she got a strangulated hernia and we spent north of $10,000 to get her well. For the first year, I truly thought her tail was broken as it never came up from between her legs. Well time passed and so did Misha’s anxiety and fear. She learned Read »

Cami2-2015 Cami2011I was looking through some old photos and ran across a picture of Cami when we first brought her home in 2011. Compared to a current photo, it is hard to believe she is the same dog. When we first brought her home she was scared, skinny, and sick with kennel cough. After a few weeks she began to blossom into the sweetest girl ever. She is loyal, loving, and extremely protective of me and the kids. We are so happy to have her as a part of our family. Thank you for all that you do in rescuing and caring for animals.

PennyHi! We adopted Penny, formerly Charlotte, back in the fall of 2014. She had been on the road quite a while, and had some issues. We want you to know that she now is the most adorable, loving, sweet funny dog and makes our family better. She is “Penny the Office Dog,” and comes to work with us often. We are so very happy that you brought us together! We LOVE our baby!

Mark's SelfieWanted to send you Mark’s latest “selfie“.  We adopted him 1 year ago this month and he is a true joy. He is a hunter and has caught multiple critters in our back yard  (we live in the city). He occasionally goes to doggie daycare and is a great traveler. He especially likes Barnsley Gardens.

Thank you for taking care of him so he could add so much to our daily lives.

IvyHello APRA,

Wanted to take the time to give you a two year update on Miss Ivy (formerly known as ‘Brie’).  Our sweet pom lady was adopted March of 2013 and we can barely remember life without her spunky, hilarious self!

Ivy completely adapted into city life with us, and about a year ago we welcomed a rescued Westie/Cairn terrier from Cairn Rescue USA as her little brother. The two are inseparable. Her brother has even helped Miss Ivy overcome her fear of crate training. Now they both sleep in their cozy dens at night.

Life with Ivy is amazing. We are forever grateful for the care and love she received at APRA before she “picked us” as her family.

Atlanta Pet Rescue & Adoption is currently overloaded with medical special needs cases and we are only able to make sure these precious animals get the care they deserve with your support! Each of these dogs are all being treated by veterinary specialists, and we are racing through our Mercy Memorial Fund trying to give these animals the second chance they deserve.

Here’s a little bit about each current special case at the adoption center:
