Mission Statement

Road Trip Home Animal Rescue is a non-profit organization providing life saving services for homeless pets in need in Georgia. We work tirelessly to save as many homeless pets as possible and to relocate them to shelters in states where there is a demand for shelter animals.

Description

Road Trip Home Animal Rescue was founded in 2011.We are a tranport rescue, pulling dogs and cats from high kill shelters in Georgia, vetting them and preparing them for transport to no-kill shelters in the Northeast where they are quickly adopted to loving families.We also get animals from animal control and owner surrenders,The homeless animal is selected because of its temperament and adoptability. It is given a full medical exam and quarantined for a minimum of 2 weeks to determine any additional underlying conditions. If necessary,the animal receives the appropriate medical care to insure that it is healthy. A full range of vaccinations are administered. Health care is provided, ranging from regular preventative care to serious injury or illness. Once an animal is in our care we are committed to its well being. Once deemed healthy by a licensed veterinarian, the pet is tranported in an air-conditioned/heated van overnight to our partner shelters in Maine,Massachusetts, New York or shelters in other states that we have inspected outselves.These areas have been identified as having a high demand for shelter animals because they have been successful in enacting and enforcing laws that protect homeless pets.As of 3/11/2021 we have saved 13,443 homeless pets.
