Every donation, big and small, makes a difference in the life of a rescued pet.

Animal Rescue Foundation receives $0 from national organizations, the government, or your tax dollars.

We rely 100% on the support of our community through private donations, fundraisers, and grants.


We are currently closed to the public. Adoptions are by appointment only. Appointments may be requested by filling out our online adoption application:

Donations are very appreciated during this time. Supply and food donations may be dropped off in the bin outside of our front door or shipped to 711 S Wilkinson St. Milledgeville, GA 31061. We also have Amazon and Chewy Wishlist’s that will ship purchased items directly to us. Further info can be found under the “you can help” section.

We are accepting volunteers on Saturdays and Sundays from 10am – 2pm. All volunteers are required to attend a brief training session before coming in. Further info can be found under the “you can help” section.

As always, thank you for your support!

Featured Adoptable Pets

Meet Reese!

Reese is an 8-9 year old mature and friendly girl. She is house trained and just wanting to spend the rest of her life in a loving home being spoiled.

Reese can get annoyed with hyper dogs, so she would probably do best in a home with other calm dogs like her, or with no dogs at all.

Unfortunately, Reese has spent many years of her life in the shelter waiting to catch someone’s attention. Come give this girl a chance at a life outside of the shelter!

Meet Penelope!

Penelope is a beautiful ~3 year old tortoiseshell with a fun and adorable personality. She is an absolute sweetheart! She can be sassy at times, but that just makes her even more lovable. 

Penelope is ready for a forever life outside of the shelter. In her past time, she enjoys head rubs and scratch posts. She is a calm girl that will make a great pet to someone who will give her the chance!
