Mission and Vision
  • Mission
  • Rescue 2 Restore is a mutually beneficial program
    aiming to improve the quality of life for youth
    housed in juvenile detention centers around the
    state of Georgia while providing a second chance
    for rescue/shelter dogs that would otherwise have
    been euthanized.
  • Vision
  • OFFER HOPE AND CHANGE, where youth will gain a
    sense of responsibility and companionship, and
    the dogs will become adoptable.

Program Establishment
Rescue 2 Restore was established in June 2014 as
a component of the Georgia Department of Juvenile
Justice, Division of Volunteer Services. The
department identified animal programming as a
successful method to provide youth with life
skills, while educating the youth on animal care
and compassion. Behaviorally, animal programs
have proven to alleviate depression and encourage
good behavior. Rescue 2 Restore is responsible
for building community partnerships and providing
the youth with positive animal interactions and
lessons.

Scope of Service
  • System Wide Services
  • Training Providing structured dog training
    programs in the facilities that house animals.
    The training program will teach the dogs skills
    to make them more adoptable, while teaching the
    youth patience and using positive reinforcement
    to create positive results.
  • Education One time and recurrent volunteers will
    educate the youth on a variety of animal issues
    including proper animal care, animal abuse and
    cruelty, pet therapy, working and service dogs,
    careers in the pet industry, and competitive dog
    sports.
  • Community Partnerships Through community
    partnerships the youth will be able to give back
    to their community through programs in the
    facilities and community service after release.

Community Partnerships
  • Dog Training Programs In these programs the
    youth give back to the community by providing
    training to dogs that would otherwise be
    euthanized at local shelters. Through these
    partnerships the youth are able to help the dogs,
    rescue groups, and eventually families in their
    community who seek to adopt a well trained dog.
  • Dog House Building Youth will be able to build
    dog houses to provide proper shelter for dogs in
    their community. Thus assisting both families who
    cannot afford adequate housing for their pets and
    the animals that benefit from proper shelter.
  • Community Service Partnerships Youth will have
    opportunities to volunteer through community
    outreach and animal welfare projects.
