Even just $5 can help save a homeless dog's life!

Saving Shelter Pets, Inc is currently planning Transport #66 from Georgia to the Northeast. Unfortunately, we are officially BROKE and are in need of donations now more than ever! During our last fundraiser for the puppies, we only raised half the amount needed, and therefore we have spent ALL extra money that was previously in our bank account.

We knew the declining economy would take its toll on our rescue efforts, but we never thought it would get this bad. :( So many dogs and puppies are depending on us, and unfortunately, we cannot help them this time unless we have sponsorship prior to the transport.

Please take a look below at the faces of the dogs who desperately need our help. If you can even spare just $5, you will be making a HUGE difference in the lives of these poor animals! Deadline to raise funds: Thursday, February 12th, midnight EST.

All donations are tax-deductible, and 100% goes directly to the dogs you see below! As always, we thank you for your support of our efforts to help the homeless animals in Georgia.


SONNY
Sonny is just a baby at only 3-4 months old. She belongs to a family that had previously signed up for our Puppy Promises program, but failed to tell us about this little girl. :( The family can not take care of Sonny and is being forced to surrender her to animal control. We can't bear to see her end up in the shelter, so we're hoping to get her onboard our next transport with your help! Sonny needs $175 in sponsorship to cover her vet exam, shots, spay, and transport to the Northeast.

Sponsorship: $175
Raised so far: $108
Still needed: $67





Lila
This gorgeous redbone coonhound is just under a year old and doesn't even have a name yet. She was dumped at our foster's home, along with the other pup in the picture (whose original owner was recently found - yay!) Just like Dawn, this poor girl has mange as well, and we're hoping that she'll be healthy in time to get on the next SSP transport. She needs $200 in sponsorship to cover her vet exam, shots, spay, mange treatment, and transport to the Northeast. First SSP supporter to donate towards this little lady can give her a name. :)

Sponsorship: $200
Raised so far: $110
Still needed: $90





4 SHARPEI PUPS
These adorable, smushy-faced little pups were also dumped at our foster's house. They already have a rescue in the Northeast ready to take them -- all they need is sponsorship to get there! Each pup needs $50 in sponsorship to cover their shots, deworming, and transport to the Northeast (for a total of $200 sponsorship for the entire litter).

Sponsorship (all 4 pups): $200
Raised so far: $200
Fully Sponsored!!





3 AUSSIE MIX PUPS
This box full of cuties just signed up for our Puppy Promises program! This means they will thankfully avoid a trip to animal control, and they will be dewormed, vaccinated, and fostered by their owners until our next transport. Not only does the Puppy Promises program save these pups' lives, but it will also pay to spay their mom (no more puppies for her!) and any other animals in the owner's household. Please help us keep these pups in our program -- instead of animal control! Each pup needs $50 in sponsorship to cover their shots, deworming, and transport to the Northeast (for a total of $150 sponsorship for the entire litter).

Sponsorship (all 3 pups): $150
Raised so far: $75
Still needed: $75





2 TERRIER PUPS
These little guys also signed up for our Puppy Promises program. They are not even 2 months old yet. Please help us keep these pups in our program -- instead of animal control! Each pup needs $50 in sponsorship to cover their shots, deworming, and transport to the Northeast (for a total of $100 sponsorship for the entire litter).

Sponsorship (both pups): $100
Raised so far: $100
FULLY SPONSORED!




Peaches
Peaches is a Dekalb Animal Control dog who is desperately seeking a forever home of her own. She has waited patiently for almost a year and one of our rescues has asked if she can come north. We would love to see her get out and into her own home. Peaches has a partial sponsorship already, she only needs $100 to cover her boarding and bus fare.

Sponsorship: $100
Raised so far: $100
Fully Sponsored!!




12 BORDER COLLIE PUPS
Yep, you read that right -- 12 pups!! Also part of our Puppy Promises program, this adorable bunch is desperately seeking help to get to their rescue in the Northeast. Animal control is no place for these cuties! :( Each pup needs $50 in sponsorship to cover their shots, deworming, and transport to the Northeast (for a total of $600 sponsorship for the entire litter).

Sponsorship (all 12 pups): $600
Raised so far: $385
Still needed: $215





Alvin
Alvin is a special case, he has been passed over for adoption here in the south as he is the last pup of a litter of puppies fostered by one of our supporters. This fun loving guy really just wants a forever home, and we have found a place for him to go, we just need a little help getting him there. All Alvin needs is a $50 bus ticket to ride and he'll be home free.

Sponsorship: $50
Raised so far: $50

4 HOUND/BOXER PUPS
Unfortunately, black dogs don't stand a chance in Georgia shelters. Thankfully, these pups were signed up for our Puppy Promises program instead of being dumped at animal control. All they need now is a little help to get to their rescue! Each pup needs $50 in sponsorship to cover their shots, deworming, and transport to the Northeast (for a total of $200 sponsorship for the entire litter).

Sponsorship (all 4 pups): $200
Raised so far: 125
Still needed: $75





5 SIBERIAN HUSKY PUPS
This litter of 5 Siberian Husky puppies also signed up for our Puppy Promises program. Each pup needs $50 in sponsorship to cover their shots, deworming, and transport to the Northeast (for a total of $250 sponsorship for the entire litter).

Sponsorship (all 5 pups): $250
Raised so far: $155
Still needed: $95





4 BULLDOG PUPS
Unfortunately, we do not have photos yet of these 4 pups, but you can bet that bulldog pups are always A-D-O-R-A-B-L-E! :) They also are part of our Puppy Promises program. Each pup needs $50 in sponsorship to cover their shots, deworming, and transport to the Northeast (for a total of $250 sponsorship for the entire litter).

Raised so far: $125

DAWN
You may remember Dawn -- she is a 17lb whippet mix who was found on the side of the road --- and, thanks to your generous donations, has just completed treatment for her mange. She loves to play fetch and is hoping to make her way to the Northeast so she can find a family to call her own! All previous vetting costs have been paid, so Dawn now only needs $50 in sponsorship to cover her transport to the Northeast.

Sponsorship: $50
Raised so far: $50
