Who Are We?

Castaways Pet Rescue is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charity dedicated to saving dogs and cats in south Georgia. We operate through a network of volunteers and foster homes in the coastal Georgia area. Our efforts are funded by tax-deductible contributions from compassionate people and organizations who care and want to help make a difference…one pet at a time.

Castaways Pet Rescue was created in 2012 by female Veteran Jayne Aitken. She resides in rural McIntosh County and felt she was seeing too many stray animals abandoned. Jayne's local shelter was a kill shelter and she had a different vision- she wanted to do better.
