One Love Animal Rescue, Inc.

The mission of One Love Animal Rescue, Inc. is to help abandoned, neglected, abused and unwanted pets by partnering with shelters, rescue groups and the community to facilitate the adoption of these animals into permanent and loving homes.

Their goal is to save one life at a time by promoting local animal shelter adoptions and raising awareness in the community about responsible pet ownership. One Love Animal Rescue, Inc. strives to highlight the importance of spaying or neutering pets which will aid in the reduction of overpopulation. They believe that appropriate and positive reinforcement training and socialization of these shelter animals will lead to well-adjusted family pets, thereby decreasing the number of abandoned animals in shelters. The organization’s dream is that one day, all the shelters will be empty because every pet will have a home.

One Love Animal Rescue, Inc. of Savannah, GA is a licensed non-profit 501(c)(3) rescue organization; all donations are tax-deductible and directly benefit the animals entrusted in our care.
