We always say there is no ‘I’ in ‘rescue.’ And to that end we wouldn’t be where we are without the strong relationships we have forged in rescue. Listed below are some of the folks we not only call ‘partners’ but also friends.
When we say Ruff Dog Rescue GA is our ‘sister’ rescue, we aren’t kidding. Ruff Dog Rescue - GA was founded by Lisa Johnson who is the sister of RDRNE’s president, Tere Morris. As founder and president, Lisa continues to steer the organization with the help of a small group of dedicated volunteers. RDR-GA assists dogs in some of the most underserved areas of Georgia. Not only do they pull dogs from tiny, rural shelters, many without public adoption programs, but they work in the community to help provide resources to ‘owned’ dogs.
The homeless dog problem in Georgia is critical and we work with Lisa and RDR-GA to bring many in-need dogs to our facility in the northeast. We often bring entire litters of puppies from Georgia, where they are a ‘dime-a-dozen’ and help adopt them into qualified homes throughout our adoption area (which, thanks to better spay/neuter compliance, is less saturated with homeless puppies).

Terri Maher, owner of Sinopa Shibas Certified Training and associate of RDRNE, has been helping our adopted pups fully adjust to their new homes and families. During the pandemic, she adjusted, as we all had, and went to virtual training. It has been a huge success in reaching out to our alumni no matter where they live.
Terri specializes in the following issues:
Puppy basic and advanced training
Resource Guarding issues
Adolescent Destruction, etc
Terri's training process is tailored to your needs and specific problem. Each dog has their own quirks and should be treated with individual training programs. And best of all, Terri offers training sessions via zoom so you and your pup can learn in the comfort of your own home.
