Georgia Peaches Puppy Rescue
Mission: Georgia Peaches Puppy Rescue (GPPR) is a Seattle-based organization which raises funds to provide transport, health care, and education so that puppies from disadvantaged situations such as high kill shelters and crowded rescues in the Southeastern United States can find permanent homes in the Seattle area. Very few puppies are available in the Seattle area to adopt from shelters because of our strong spay and neuter practices. Because there is the opposite problem in the Southeast, Georgia Peaches Puppy Rescue works hard to prevent euthanasia of these puppies in overcrowded shelters by flying them here where they are adopted very quickly and easily into loving, forever homes.
Other Ways to Get Involved:
Volunteer - there are an array of volunteer opportunities available, including providing assistance for fundraising events, adoption events, and home visits.
Foster - Georgia Peach puppies fly from Georgia and elsewhere on a regular basis and need good, loving foster homes until they each find their respective forever home. Fostering a puppy (8-20 weeks-old) is generally very short term (2 weeks on average) and fostering a young dog (5-8 months-old) may be closer to 4-6 weeks. Because this type of fostering is very short term it really works for some people’s lifestyle. Also, in multiple dog households, it is often easier to have a puppy.
Sponsor - Adoption fees do not cover the costs of rescuing their Peach Puppies. Often they encounter health issues that cost hundreds of dollars. They want every pup they adopt to have the healthiest, happiest start possible so their vetting is the most rigorous of just about any rescue you will find. Sponsor a puppy from a high kill shelter for $300—Georgia Peaches will make sure it gets to Seattle, is vetted and healthy, and adopted into a good family.
