WE ARE RESCUE Until you have held a homeless tiny puppy in your arms as it kissed your face with slobbery puppy breath, and felt the love…Until you have held an injured or severely ill dog in your arms, and felt their pain… Until you have looked into the eyes of a tired aging senior dog, and felt their wisdom…And until you have seen and understand the look in a dogs eyes that tells you their time on earth with you is over, and you humanely let them go, You will never understand the life of a rescuer.We find beauty in the most incomprehensible places and the otherwise homely faces. It is our gift to see beyond the dirt, terror, the sadness and defeat and find the true soul that lies within. WE ARE RESCUE. Written By:Kathy Sullivan ParkesFriend and Fellow Rescuer

WHERE WE ARE LOCATED
Girard Lifesaver Rescue is located in the small rural town of Girard, Ga. We have few fosters most of our rescues are housed and cared for here at our facility. We are in a 100 year old house that has been restored as our "hotel for dogs". We have 1.15 acres and have outside and inside kennels. Our entire property is fenced in and we have two play yards for our animals to excercise and play in. Being in a county with no animal control and so many animals needing a safe haven, we stay overwhelmed. We try very hard to help as many animals as we are able to facilitate and we DESPERATELY need a few angels willing to foster some of our rescues. This opens up doors and makes it possible for us to help others in need. Nothing hurts us more than having to turn away a pet who desperately needs a safe place to go just because we are full to capacity and do not have foster homes for them. PLEASE CONSIDER BEING A FOSTER PARENT...You will be rewarded with love, affection and doggie kisses from the animals you are wiling to help get a second chance at life.
We are a Georgia Department of Agriculture licensed rescue and are in process of getting our 501(c)3 non profit tax status so that we can help even more abandoned and neglected animals in our county and beyond. We recently became incorporated. By incorporating our rescue and spay/neuter clinic into one entity, we are able to offer no cost spay/neuter surgeries. We feel this will make a tremendous difference in the lives of countless animals born in Burke County only to be discarded at dumpsters or down lonely backroads of our county.
