The shelters in north Georgia take in thousands of dogs every year. NGAA encourages people to go to the shelters to adopt and to follow the shelters on Facebook and share posts as widely as possible. NGAA helping dogs/photos.

NGAA offers some direct adoptions, but our primary role with dogs at this time is transferring them from shelters to adoption centers where they have a better chance of finding homes. Follow us on Facebook to see photos of dogs from local shelters or follow the shelters. >>>

We've transferred over 2100 dogs in the past five years and have also adopted out hundreds. We provide foster care for dogs as necessary, as well as vet care before transfers or adoptions.

We sent 14 puppies on this transport to an adoption center in Pennsylvania (pics on right are puppies right after arriving in PA).
