Petzone Dog Rescue, a non-profit (501c3), No-Kill shelter in Athens, GA.

We rescue dogs from high kill shelters and animal control facilities and Save the dogs from being euthanized when they run out of space or simply been there too long. We then bring them to Petzone and make sure that all their medical needs are attended to, get them fully vaccinated and then spay/neuter them before putting them up for adoption.

Once they are up for adoption, they stay at our rescue shelter - which is set-up like a doggie day care, they do not spend all day in crates. Our dogs are put in packs so they have friends to play with. We keep the dogs as long as it takes to find them a pack of their own; a fur-ever home!

Unlike other no-kill shelters, we do not only rescue the "cute" or "adoptable" dogs. Our rescue takes in sick, injured, ugly and old dogs, as well as the cute and adoptable ones.

Our facility has an adoption center, low cost spay/neuter clinic and vaccines, a dog trainer, full service grooming and a thrift shop, all in one place that supports our rescue efforts!

Our goal is responsible dog ownership - we are making a difference... one dog at time!
