With any big dream, it takes a lot of work to take on such a commitment. When facilities are starting up such as this, they have growing pains. One of those things is having a facility that is fully functional. The sooner we get together to assist, the sooner we will have a fantastic facility in the St. Augusta area.


Green Acres Animal Rescue is a non-profit organization that provides a safe environment for dogs and cats that are homeless, abused, elderly, neglected, or abandoned. Once rehabilitated, some of the wonderful dogs that come through this shelter will be trained and then donated to Vets suffering from PTSD.
