Helping dogs stay with their family

Mission

Working in partnership with our community to educate, cultivate, and facilitate the compassionate care and treatment of animals in high kill shelters in North Georgia, as well as assist those who need help to keep their pet.

Notes from the nonprofit

We work hard every day with our Outreach program to help families keep their pets by helping them with medical costs, preventatives and food. We will also pull dogs on local shelter's "last day" lists whenever we can find a foster. We pay for everything for our fosters so they only give their time and love. Without fosters and our faithful donors, we would not be able to help anyone. Donations are becoming harder and harder to come by. The board members and staff are giving more and more so we can continue helping as much as possible!

Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Increase our outreach program. During covid this has become a critical program. In January and February, I started volunteering at a vet and spoke to several other vets and shelters to help spread the word. We need to come up with ideas to do more fund raising as we are small and we are funding most of this program ourselves.\n\nMy strategic plan (which I couldn't figure out how to use the template above), is that we raise $5,000 by 12/31/21 for this program alone. We continue to struggle for donors but are encouraging folks to sponsor dogs as we pull them from the shelters and that is helping.

Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Canine Outreach

When times get tough, we support members of our community so they can keep their pets. This includes heartworm preventative medication, vaccinations, annual examinations, and food. Our goal is to reduce the number of owner surrenders at local shelters.

We're committed to spay and neuter through education and facilitation. We work with veterinarians to provide low cost spay and neuter surgery options. We recognize that low cost may still be too expensive and provide sponsorship on a case-by-case basis. Please contact us if you need assistance

We also offer spay/neuter as an outreach option whenever possible. We do complete at least 4-5 spay/neuters a year for outreach as funds allow in addition to our rescue dogs. No dog is adopt intact.

Charting impact

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

More monthly donor. Hopefully Story board or two at events. Events are now happening weekly at our local PetsMart

Continue to raise funds via word of mouth and Facebook/Instagram (however this has slowed significantly).
Approach corporations for sponsorships. Looking for small and medium business support.

We need to recruit volunteers to help with reaching our goals. My partner and I will also work hard to achieve them ourselves if need be.

We have helped several people with food, vaccinations, spay/neuters, and monthly preventatives, along with a special surgery here and there. Lots of folks that need help due to Covid. We have done a lot of split bills with people as wel.
