We are, obviously, Dog Lovers and want you to join us in saving pets and getting great exposure to dog-lovin people.

All dogs and their humans are welcome!

Our purpose is to give dogs a unified stronger voice about the importance of pet adoption.  Rescue Dog Games brings these strong pet rescues and organizations together to bring awareness to the need in the Atlanta area “to adopt—not shop”.  Atlanta Rescue Dog Games’ festival organizers look to a future in the Atlanta area, where shelters, organizations, rescue groups can work together on many fronts to help the bottom line—which is saving dogs’ lives!  The American Humane Association estimates that each year, 3.7 million animals are euthanized. We must stand together and help the dogs in shelters in Atlanta. Rescue Dog Games gives the public an opportunity to meet, sign up, and volunteer with one of the agencies and, of course, to meet and adopt their next best friend.

The festival will also feature the VIP (Very Important Puppy) Fashion Show featuring adoptable dogs from the participating pet rescues and Atlanta VIP dogs & their humans. 

"One of the best festivals in Atlanta - and it helps non-profits and rescue organizations. What's not to love!?"  

March 15, 2020 brings an event like no other… an interactive, fun field day of silly and competitive games for dogs and their humans to participate in together. It will be an event filled with festivities, interactive dog game stations, dog related vendors, and dog photo booth, an interactive dog art project, Park Tavern food and beer garden and Rescue Dog People! 

The festival shines a light on the importance of pet adoption and encourages people to get outside and PLAY more. There is great value in enjoying the present moment - and even more through play with your dogs! Playing with your dog not only helps humans reduce stress but is a beautiful way to return some of dog’s constant unconditional love.
