Sunkissed Acres

Providing rescue, respite and retirement to animals in need in northern Georgia for more than two decades


Hundreds of horses have come to the farm, most have endured unspeakable cruelty and neglect. They come to us unable to stand, unable to trust, and they are given careful attention and veterinary care, a soft place to land.Others are victims of the economy, and others loss of interest. Many others still,are horses that are loved and cared for, but their owners have fallen on hard times. These horses will remain in their homes with the families who love them. Sunkissed Acres assists these horses by providing grain, hay and any veterinary care needed until the owner is back on their feet.

No matter how they come to us, they will know kindness, respect, and care. They will be loved.

For Horses

Hundreds of horses have come through our gates over the years, and we are well known for our work with senior horses, the horses that most consider "unadoptable." We believe that the seniors are the perfect first horse, last horse or in-between horse for those who understand their needs and expect nothing more than love in return.

For Dogs

We have a long history of rescue and rehoming of wonderful dogs. They've gone on to equally wonderful homes all over the US, and make it our priority to match these perfect dogs with the people who will cherish them.
