Hiya, it’s me Willie! What you got there? Is that a treat. Can I have it? Hmmm, Not paying attention? I’ll sit for you. Hmm, still ignoring me...I’ll give you kisses. Still not giving me that treat. PLEASE, food what do I have to do? You see, I’m a big dog. But I am the biggest cuddly love bug a person could want. All I want is to please my people! Sure, I get overzealous sometimes, but I will be the best running partner and after my run I will snuggle up and watch TV with you. All I need is a best friend forever. Could that be you?
Meet Georgia, a four-year-old husky mix that was adopted from us as a puppy. Georgia is house trained, loves humans and kids and even goes to the dog park. Georgia’s owners are no longer able to care for her due to aggression between her and their other older dog. Georgia loves to go for car rides and has a fun husky personality! Georgia will make a great addition to the proper patient loving family. Could that be you?
Gus is an adorable little 12-14 week old husky mix(mom was husky) boy that get along great with other dogs and loves people. Gus would do best in a home with lots of structure, boundaries and time to train and exercise him. Huskies are NOT couch potatoes.
Stay tuned as we get to know them
So, if you are looking for a beautiful, energetic, fabulous, outgoing, free spirit kind of husky, well then, I’m your girl!! I happen to be around 3 years old and love my humans as well as the 2 husky foster brothers that I get to hang out with. They’ve been giving me cues on how to act like a husky and they tell me I need another dog around to show me the ropes, they insist. I would love an adventurous family that can spend a lot of time with me in their big, fenced in backyard. So, if you think I’m your girl, you know where to find me. XOXO Aspen
Bio coming soon!
Hi, I'm Apollo! I'm a devilishly handsome 3 year old male with gorgeous blue eyes that even Frank Sinatra would be jealous of. I am a perfect gentleman and know all the commands. I can sit, stay, leave it, take it and shake. I enjoy going on adventures and would prefer someone active who likes to hike or run. The couch potato life isn't for me. I enjoy spending time with other dogs, especially the little ones. They make excellent snacks! I probably shouldn't live with them or cats. I'm much better behaved with dogs my size, especially the ladies. I'm looking for someone who will give me structure and take the time to exercise and train me. The vet did say I have some cataracts starting but doesn't think they affect me too much. He said they just need to be monitored. I won't let a silly little thing like cataracts slow me down though! I promise to be the best companion ever! Can you be my new family? If you're not ready to adopt but are interested in helping me out I could use a foster home until I find my forever family. Releashed Rescue will provide you with everything you need!
Denali is about 2 years old and has lived his life on a chain. Denali is quite the character(the class clown at our kennel) and loves to run circles around us as well as run toward us and then veer off in the knick of time. He does well with other dogs but will growl upon first introduction but more in a playful way. Like most huskies, Denali plays rough. Denali is very treat and food motivated so will be an easy train for the right home that can offer structure and a routine. We have not seen anything but LOVE in this dog and will be an awesome addition to the family that can show hi how to live in the human world!
Annalise is a grey and white beauty. Annalise was an owner surrender and out of time at a high kill shelter. Owners probably used her up from overbreeding. She loves to play but is also perfectly content to sit on the couch and watch TV. Annalise would be considered a senior probbly 9-10 years old. She is sweet once she gets comfortable but fearful and barks at new people. Annalise was treated for ectopic ureters and is doing great but will need to be on estrogen and proin for life. She would do best in a quiet home with out children. she loves other calm male dogs but wil not tolerate crazy ones! Don't you have the room for a lovable girl?
Hello! I’m a pint size bundle of 6 month old Husky fun with the heart of a 280 lb line backer who is looking for a new full time gig. As you can see from my previous resume history during my time as the President of Bed Hogs Unlimited, founding member of the Welcoming Committee and the former dictator of the Neighborhood Watch Group, I LOVE people. With these kind of skills you probably understand why I do not like to be separated from my people EVER. If you are looking for the best personal assistant, I’m your guy. I promise I will not ever leave your side. Ever. Even when you have go to the bathroom. I’m there. I’ll fetch the TP and make zero comments about the stench.
I love to ride in the car and as it gives me a chance to showcase my mad road trip DJ skills. And you know what that means….we can vaca together! OMG, can we go to Barkwells?!?!
No six figure salary required, I’ll work for room, board and unconditional love. I hate filing and cannot run the copy machine, so those menial task should to be left to the felines. Speaking of which, I’m pretty good with cat management considering yesterday was the first time I’ve spent any time with one. Other possible Canine colleagues would need to know I get very protective of my people want to be right next to you so another submissive Canine who doesn’t have the same M.O. would be the best suited colleague.
“Crate" is a five letter word and I don’t want to talk about it. In fact, you put me in a crate I will vocally reenact a scene from Macbeth and another scene from 8/10 night in Eipstien's cell. My foster mom is teaching to sleep in one, but I’d much prefer to sleep at the foot of your bed or curled up on your lap.
I know sit and I’m quickly learning down. I’m highly food motivated, currently on ‘bridging’ level of house training and presently temping at an aerospace company as a professional napper.
Have your people call my people and let's close this deal before Thanksgiving break.
Resa is a beautiful blue-eyed piebald husky. She's a bit undersized and extremely shy so she will require a home with another balanced "alpha type" dog to learn from and help her "come out of her shell." Her true personality and fun-loving nature is really only revealed when she's playing with other dogs. She will need a family with PATIENCE, who will allow her the necessary time to adjust to her new surroundings and and give her the space needed to become her true self. Lots of structure and a consistent routine that includes daily exercise will help her learn to trust and bond with a new family. If you have the patience and are willing to take things slowly this lovely girl may be the dog for you.
***Update Blue is in training with Angie Woods, the Atlanta Dog Whisperer. He will need a foster/adopter to work on his new manners once he graduates in mid-October.
Meet Blue. Blue is a 1.9 year old blue-eyed black and white AKC husky. Blue appears to be house broken and knows some basic commands(he has a certificate of graduation from Petsmart dog training). We accepted them from a family that truly had no other options but to take to the shelter. Blue walks like a husky on a leash and has lots of energy. Blue will take a special family to give him a home with lots of structure, time to train and exercise them. Could that be you?
Winter is a 1.5 year old blue-eyed white husky. Winter appears to be house broken and knows some basic commands. We accepted them from a family that truly had no other options but to take to the shelter. Winter will take a special family to give her a home with lots of structure, time to train and exercise them. Could that be you?
King is the sweetest dog in the world. He is a wonderful boy that will take some time to adjust to a new home. he came from an extreme neglect situation and is doing well with me but still is skittish around new situations or people. It is amazing how resilient animals are! He was malnourished and living in a pen for years with little human contact. he loves other dogs and will play for hours but will wait to come in the door until the coast is clear of humans. He does not love the human touch but will tolerate it and shows no aggression when touched, just discomfort. King will thrive in a calm, quiet household with another dog and lots of love.
King and Queen are wonderful dogs around 11-12 years. They will take some time to adjust to a new home.

They do not love the human touch but will tolerate it and show no aggression when touched, just discomfort. King and Queen will thrive in a calm, quiet household with another dog and lots of love. King and Queen are very bonded and i fear might regress if separated.
Meet Harper - a 9 month old neutered, bi-eyed, "woolly" male husky. Of course, it's hard work being this handsome - literally! This guy's thick coat will require extreme care in the grooming department and daily clean-up. He is a shedding machine! Because of his very thick fur, he will likely require devoted early risers for his exercise and extra mental stimulation during the summer months when it will be too hot for him outdoors. Harper is very affectionate and eager to come for pets when called. He is a bit on the small side for a male husky his age at approx. 25-30 lbs. Though he still requires basic obedience training, he is very treat motivated. He will surely be another high-energy, typical boy husky requiring lots of exercise, training and affection. He comes from a home with small children and other dogs, however he is taking some time to warm up to his foster family's husky. He has never been around cats and therefore probably would do better in a home without them. Harper will do best in a home experienced with the breed and with lots of time to devote to his training and high-energy nature. Huskies generally don't do well for long periods alone and can be destructive if allowed to get bored. Stay tuned for more updates as we get to know Harper.
Please welcome Onyx to the Releashed Rescue pack. Am I allowed to have a favorite(don’t tell anyone but this boy is my new fav). Onyx is an approximately 6 year old, red and white blue-eyed male husky that has been in animal control since June. He was in Tennessee and we just couldn’t get him here but they held him because he was their favorite too. Onyx is a super sweet boy that is soo happy to be playing in a yard. He walks well on a leash and is super friendly with people and dogs. Onyx would do best in a home with lots of structure, boundaries and time to train and exercise him. Could you be his new family?
Who’s a cute boy? Yeti is a 36 lb. adorable little 1-2 year old red and white boy that gets along great with other dogs and loves his people. Check out those baby blues too. He is an absolute sweetheart. Yeti was found running stray and like many huskies his owners never came to the shelter to reclaim him. Yeti would do best in a home with lots of structure, boundaries and time to train and exercise him. Huskies are NOT couch potatoes.
Stay tuned as we get to know Yeti.
Why is your adoption fee so much?
Please be aware that the adoption fee is $300. Each dog and puppy has received all of their age appropriate vetting. Due to our vetting and boarding costs, which are usually more than the adoption fee, we cannot accept a lesser adoption fee.
Recently someone asked, "Why would you charge $300($400 for puppies under 6 months) for a rescue pet? Why not just place it in a good home?" The answer is because we need adopters who are willing to support all rescue pets, not just the dog they adopt. A young, healthy dog might cost us $150-$400 in vet care, and many people will want to adopt it. An older dog with health issues or a heartworm positive dog can easily cost $500-1500 in veterinary expenses, and it may require months of foster care for rehabilitation; yet we can only ask a minimal adoption fee.
Fees from the younger, more adoptable dogs help offset the cost of caring for the others. Most of our dogs have a sad story to tell, and some have suffered through years of neglect or abuse. We hope that you too are willing to give an opportunity for a better life to ALL of our dogs by supporting them through adoption fees. Without these funds, our rescue efforts would not be possible.
What is included in your adoption fee?
All dogs have been fully vaccinated (DHPP, bordatella, and rabies), spayed or neutered, microchipped, and are heartworm free. (vaccinations may exclude puppies who have not completed all three rounds of DHPP or may not be old enough for rabies)
Sanctuary dogs are foster dogs that unfortunately have been deemed unadoptable for various reasons. It may be due to medical issues, age, extreme shyness, behavioral issues that would make them unsafe to the public or for various other reasons. These dogs will spend the rest of their lives with the rescue being taken care as well as possible until it's their time to cross the rainbow bridge. The rescue does our best to keep their lives as enriched as possible including play, food, vet care, lots of love, exercise, time outdoors, etc.
