They have been instrumental in not only finding homes for abandoned dogs, but also teaming with local animal control to save the lives of dogs all over Butts County. Since becoming involved with the Butts County Animal Shelter, their group has transformed it from a 90% kill shelter into a shelter with a 90% adoption rate.
