Mission

Our mission is to stop pet over-population and senseless euthanasia of companion animals through spay and neuter programs and strategic partnerships. Fix Georgia Pets (FGP) provides grants to clinics, shelters, rescues, etc. across our state to reduce the number of pets that end up in shelters and stop this senseless suffering and killing of companion animals. As a state, we cannot end overpopulation and stop senseless euthanasia without focusing efforts on proactive spay/neuter programs in the highest risk communities. FGP is very similar to the United Way of Greater Atlanta in the sense that we aim to support clinics, shelters, rescues, etc. across Georgia. We don't do the work, we support those who do the work.

Notes from the nonprofit

Fix Georgia Pets supports those organizations around the State of Georgia that need our help to provide low cost or free spay and neuter surgeries for companion animals. Many people are unable to pay the high cost for these surgeries. Together, with our FGP partners, we help find these organizations all around our state and give them grants to perform such surgeries. Our goal is to raise enough funds to support 50 different veterinarian clinics, veterinarian hospitals, shelters and rescue organizations all around the State of Georgia. Together we can help end the overpopulation and stop the euthanasia of healthy animals in the State of Georgia.

Goals & Strategy

Learn about the organization's key goals, strategies, capabilities, and progress.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

1) Increase fund raising by getting more exposure to other potential donors around the State of Georgia
2) Provide at least 10 low-cost spay and neuter days around the state by partnering with our Fix Georgia Pets Partners, clinics, vets and other rescue organizations. Focusing on both:
a. the “Community pets”
b. the “Rescue pets”

• We will increase our fundraising efforts by putting on:
1. Annual Gala Event - Fall
2. Annual Golf Tournament - Fall
3. “Ticketed” event – Spring/Fall
4. Find ways to increase awareness. i.e:
 In-Home gatherings: donors offer to host a group of potential donors where FGP has the opportunity to showcase what we are doing.
 Host “bingo” nights at various dog parks around the state using the “Friends & Family” link of pay $5 +/month to FGP.
 Offer a raffle for a “pet basket at various breweries
 Several ideas are being presented all the time.

• We will organize several spay and neuter days by working together with our Fix Georgia Pets Partners, clinics, vets and other rescue organizations that are already vetted by our FGP Grant team.
1. We have 2 annual meetings with our FGP Partners to plan for these events, one in spring and one in the fall.

2. We create a calendar of events, showing where these “spay and neuter days” will take place all around the State of Georgia.

3. We make sure we service both the “community animals” and the “rescue dogs”.

By focusing on both communities, we help keep these companion animals out of the shelters and/or be available for adoption (FYI: every dog or cat must be spayed or neutered to be adopted).

Fix Georgia Pets have the capabilities for meeting our goals through fund raising and providing low cost or free spay and neuter days around the state. We have the relationships with the various organizations ( our FGP Partners, clinics, vets and rescue organizations and shelters) around the state to make this happen.

As of March 20,2023, we have the Fix Georgia Pets Partners meeting schedule in April. Our Gala is scheduled for Oct. 13th and the Golf Tournament is scheduled for Nov. 13th. We also have 2 In Home gatherings scheduled for this Spring. We are currently scheduling one of our "ticketed" event for May or June in Atlanta and one in Macon, GA for September. Lots of planning going on.

We also are getting lost of volunteers to help us with each event. Many people are eager to help. Lots os meeting and "zoom calls.

We are also working on getting corporate sponsors and FGP patrons.

Lots gong on!
