A lot of friends referred me to RAR. I was more than pleased on how great they were. This is my first time getting a rescue. They were kind, helped me choose a great dog and made sure that I was going to also treat the dog very well. The dogs were up to date on shots and healthy. I will definitely go through them again to get more dogs.

As a Commissioner on the Fayette County Board of Commissioners (Georgia), we were having severe issues with overcrowding in our county Animal Shelter.

Euthanizations were up and we could not find enough residents to become pet owners. There was also a shortage of dog and cat foster homes. We needed a viable long-term solution.

Our prayers were answered when Royal Animal Refuge came on the scene. They have been an exceptional community partner.

Not only was the county shelter able to off-load the over-crowding, but Royal Animal Refuge also took excellent care of the dogs in their care.

Volunteers at the non-profit give the dogs loving attention and work to make them into adoptable pets for local families.

It is truly been a privilege to work with Royal Animal Refuge and we are indebted to them for their service to our community.

I adopted my first dog through Royal 3 years ago. They quickly became more like family than a local rescue. I met so many lovely people through their rescue and they continued to keep in touch with me and my dog. Not long after I became a foster failure to a wonderful bunny rabbit. Sadly in January, my dog Monty passed away from an aggressive and rare form of cancer. Royal was there for me every step of the way. They helped me spread the word to raise money to get him treatment. When there was nothing else to be done, they were there for me through his loss. They sent me a beautiful memorial plaque with a photo of Monty. Then when I was ready, they helped me be matched with a puppy who has become my best friend. They even waived the adoption fee in Monty’s honor. The volunteers of this incredible rescue have become like family to me and my animals. I can honestly say that I wouldn’t be where I am today without them and their influence in my life. They are truly heroes ❤️

Royal Animal Refuge is an amazing dog rescue organization. Their dedication and commitment to unwanted, abused and neglected dogs is remarkable. I have observed dogs being rescued from hi-kill shelters, owner surrenders and puppers left in a Home Depot parking lot. After adopting from RAR and following them on Facebook, I began volunteering in my free time. I have personally witnessed the love, care and compassion the entire RAR Team shows these dogs.
The best thing for me to see is when one of these fur-babies finds their forever home and gets to live the life they've always deserved. They get that opportunity thanks to the wonderful work Royal Animal Refuge does every single day! ❤

I have four rescue dogs from Royal and foster puppies for them. The staff is dedicated to the dogs, fosters and adopters. I can’t really describe how much this refuge means to me and my family. They are always putting themselves out there to save and protect a dog. I would recommend this refuge to anyone who is looking for a dog, puppy, small, medium or large. Love the work they put into making a dogs life what it should be - Wag Tail Happy

The Royal Animal Refuge works so very hard everyday to make sure the animals in their care are taken care of, no matter how much work or what the cost. Since August of 2017 over 4000 dogs have been adopted. Endless hours of volunteer work, love and attention have created a community of hope, love and common purpose. So grateful to be part of this amazing team.
