We are an animal welfare nonprofit founded in 2007 in Atlanta Georgia. We have been recognized by the State of Georgia and the City of Woodstock. Our primary focus is ending the euthanization of all shelter animals in America, through our Dont Euthanize program. Our secondary emphasis is on education and advocacy for homeless animals. To that end we have published three animal welfare books: Project Black Dog Adoption, Rescue Renew Rehome and Art of the Black Dog.
