All they want is a something to eat, a warm place to sleep & a gentle voice to calm their fears.

We’re Suzie's Friends. If you care to help, you’ll be one of Suzie's Friends too.


They sit helpless, in cages, awaiting their fate.

In one neighboring county alone, hundreds of hungry, abandoned dogs are picked up each month, and end up in overcrowded shelters.

Coming in far faster than they can be adopted, thousands of sweet, beautiful dogs in South Georgia were put down last year.

They could have led happy lives as someone’s pet. But sadly, most of the families who could adopt them live many miles to the north.

They’re rescued by Suzie’s Friends then vetted and transported to loving homes out of the state.

In response to the sad destiny of these strays, the Suzie’s Friends project in Homerville, Georgia was begun by John and Shelley Allison.  Thirteen years later, in 2015, they solicited the help and expertise of Animal Aid USA and Allmons All About Animals in Blackshear, Georgia.

Now, lucky dogs are treated by vets and assessed by specialists to make sure they’re healthy and sociable enough for family life. Then specially outfitted vans, two of which were donated by the Allisons, transport them into the arms of loving families in other parts of the country.






They end up living the good life as someone’s pet.

Over the last 10 years over 30,000 happy tail-waggers have been rescued. It’s a success story that shows what a difference ordinary citizens can make in the world.

However our ongoing effort is costly, and simply can’t continue without the active support of people like you who love animals. See below for ways you can help — and the pups will love you forever!

So many sweet dogs have been saved.
So many more are waiting for us to come.

Over the last 10 years over 30,000 have been saved from certain death and transported out of state and into loving homes in other parts of the country who have a shortage of adoptable dogs.

We are an army of 100% volunteers who scrounge every month for enough money to keep our vehicles on the road.

The only way we can continue year after year is because people just like you will ‘step up’ and save the life of a orphaned animal.
