Georgia Rescue, Rehabilitation & Relocation
Special people for special dogs and special cats
Founded in 2011, GRRR is a small 501(c)(3) rescue organization that serves Chatham County in coastal Georgia as well as surrounding counties in the area. Based in Savannah, we are dedicated to rescuing senior dogs and small breed dogs from owners who are no longer able to care for them, from public shelters without a "no-kill" policy and from situations where a senior or small breed dog has suffered abuse or neglect. We are committed to helping all senior dogs and believe that no matter what the age or health condition, every rescued senior dog deserves to find their last stop loved. All dogs rescued by GRRR are spayed or neutered, receive full veterinary treatment, immunizations and microchips. We are a foster based organization and all rescued dogs are placed in loving foster homes while awaiting adoption into carefully screened forever homes. Many of our senior dogs rescued are placed into forever foster homes where GRRR supports all financial costs for the dog while they live out their remaining months or years.
Lil’ Baxter is one of the sweetest little boys you will ever meet. We recently rescued him from Chatham County Animal Services in Savannah after he was surrendered there, no fault of his own. He is currently with GRRR in a loving foster home where he interacts well with the other dog in the home. He is twelve years old, full of happy energy, loves to walk on a leash, watch movies with his person and go on car rides.
Lil' Baxter would love to meet with you!
GRRR Rescues Randi from Coffee County
This sweet senior Yorkie girl joined GRRR after being dumped with other dogs on a dirt road in Coffee County. We brought her to safety after being transported from central Georgia. Her loving GRRR foster mom has named her Randi. She is slightly visually impaired, very shy and very sweet. After vetting and giving her the ability to acclimate and decompress, we will be seeking an incredible forever home in the near future.
Blind and deaf Dolly is rescued by GRRR
Yesterday we rescued blind and deaf Dolly who is approximately fourteen years in age.
We brought her here from Coffee County, Georgia. This incredibly sweet little girl recently lost her dad and she joined our forever foster senior program. On her first day with us she went see Dr. Mulvey for her intake exam and was placed on two medications to assist her heart function. We welcome Dolly to the GRRR family!
In July of 2020, we were contacted by a local senior citizen home regarding a sweet senior blind poodle named Petey. His mom was a resident at the senior home but due to diminishing capabilities, she was no longer able to care for her beloved Petey. Recognizing our work with senior dogs, the senior home asked if we would take him into our forever foster program providing Petey with his last stop loved. Pictured here are scenes of Petey and his loving foster family where he happily spent his last year. Petey passed away peacefully yesterday surrounded by the incredible love his foster family surrounded him with daily over the last year. While it is a sad day for those who loved him, we celebrate the love he knew and was surrounded with in his last year of life. We are sad that you are gone, but the last year and a month with you were the best.
15 year old Sparky joins GRRR
We recently rescued fifteen year old Sparky earlier this week after he lost his beloved dad. We are happy to report that he has settled into his new life surrounded by the love of an incredible family who believe in giving senior dogs a happy new life. This picture was sent by his foster parents and was taken as he happily cuddled up for an evening of TV on the sofa with his new mom and dad. Last stop loved!
Riding bikes for senior dogs
Heavy rain and wind did not dampen the spirits of a dedicated group of people who rode five miles on bicycles on February 11, 2023 in the Last Stop Loved Cupid Ride for GRRR senior dogs. With over 60 registrations and sponsorship by Furrytail Wedding, Lo Go Goods, Galloway House Inn, Oasis Senior Advisors, Pop Squad Balloons and Robin Robinson Greco, it was an incredible and memorable afternoon event! The ride and fundraiser is all due to the wonderful people at Savannah On Wheels located at 405 West Hall Street in Savannah’s historic district. GRRR is beyond grateful for their creation and facilitation of this annual event. Recognition of our work in rescuing senior dogs and providing them homes where they will find
their last stop loved is what we cherish so we are
grateful to all those who support our work.
Thank you to everyone who participated and made
this a very happy day for our senior dogs!
