Animal Rescue

We provide shelter and care for lost or abandoned pets in the Effingham County area while helping them find new homes.

Welcome to Effingham Animal Rescue Sanctuary

We are a foster-based sanctuary completely run by volunteers.  All of our animals are in foster homes until they are adopted.

Our adoption applicants are thoroughly researched and carefully interviewed before any adoption decisions are made.  We encourage approved applicants to bring family members and pets to meet the new pet.  The pet can go home at the time of the meet if so desired.
