Flip

Meet Flip! She’s a girl and a bit of a tomboy. They were going to send her to the rainbow bridge in Clayton County and she said “no way!” She did circles for a toy and made the shelter staff love her–they worked so hard to get her to safety. She’s a boxer mix and is athletic, very smart and high energy! She is around 8 months old and I weighs 33 lbs. Email gapeachresuce@gmail.com if you would like to adopt her.

Georgia Peaches Puppy Rescue Mission

The mission of Georgia Peaches Puppy Rescue is to provide a rescue puppy option for individuals and families that might otherwise purchase a puppy due to the low numbers of young dogs and puppies in the shelters here relative to some other areas in the country.  Of equal importance is that the demand for rescue puppies here locally helps to the life of a puppy in another state where there is an overpopulation problem. We also hope to help educate people about the plight of animals and overpopulation in other areas of the country by the nature of our rescue.

FAQ’s:

Question:  Who are the Georgia Peaches?

Answer:  Georgia Peaches are young dogs and puppies from Georgia who need a forever home!  They are highly adoptable dogs—many of which were scheduled for euthanasia at a high kill shelter.  Their ages range from 8 weeks to 1 year.  However a Georgia Peach really stands for a puppy coming from a disadvantaged environment which could be anywhere in the world!

Question:  Why Georgia?

Answer:  This project addresses the needs of a sub-population of young dogs in a state that is overpopulated due to inconsistent spaying and neutering.  In the Southeast US, there is a surplus of puppies and it is not uncommon for entire puppy litters to be destroyed.  The shelters in Georgia are often crowded due to dog overpopulation as well as owner surrenders, and because of that the euthanasia rate is high.

Question:  Why would you bring puppies from Georgia—don’t we have lots of them here in Seattle?

Answer:  Puppies are something we do NOT have a surplus of in Seattle.  Because we generally adhere to spay and neuter laws, there are less accidental litters.  A family that wants a rescue puppy has a challenge on their hands.  Some give up the quest and ultimately turn to breeders.  The Georgia Peaches Puppy Rescue aims to give homeless puppies that have been on death row a chance to come get adopted in the dog loving Pacific Northwest.   And in turn, these Georgia Peach puppies give locals here in Seattle the option to bypass a breeder and make a choice to support puppy rescue!  Lately, we have expanded to adoptions in Canada and Alaska where there is also a lower number of rescue puppies.

Yoda

Yoda had a heck of a time in Georgia. In late May she was rescued from Clayton and had severe mange so badly she almost died. She’s about 6 months old now, in Seattle at her foster’s, has hair, and is looking for her forever home!

Sally

Sally is a locally grown Georgia Peach, and was going to be put down because she had been at the shelter so long. She is still just a baby, no more than 11 months old. She is very shy at first and does get frightened easily but we are working on that.. She knows sit and down and has no food aggression. She is 60 pounds but probably could put on another 5-10 and needs exercise.

She is better around male dogs than female and she is currently getting tested around cats. She is extremely gently with children and take treats with such care. All Sally wants is love and affection. Such a special and sweet girl. Oh and yes she is house trained and sleeps fantastically in her crate at night!
