Gorgeous dogs & lots of pups need our help! Transport #68....

DEADLINE FOR FUNDS IS TONIGHT!!


UPDATE, 7:30pm - We're getting there, but we still need more help!! Thanks and warm puppy kisses to everyone who has contributed so far!! :)

HELP!! This morning we found ourselves in a tough spot. Despite our fundraising efforts to date for this transport, we are about $1700 shy of covering our estimated expenses. The transport van is scheduled to leave tomorrow. If we send it without raising more funds, we put the entire SSP organization in financial jeopardy. If we cancel the transport, we have absolutely nowhere to go with 4 dogs and 51 puppies (and you all know what that implies).

If TODAY we raise enough funds to cover our immediate expenses (just vetting and transport, NOT including the spay/neuter for the Puppy Promises families), then we can resolve our immediate crisis of moving the animals. WE DESPERATELY NEED YOUR HELP TO DO THIS!!!

Can you spare even $5 or $10 to help dig us out of a jam today??? Donations of any size would be enormously appreciated. We thank you all in advance for any support you can provide.




Please take a look at the adorable faces below who need your help to give them a second chance at life.

All donations are tax-deductible and 100% goes directly to the dogs. Any and all donations are greatly appreciated! :) Even $5 can go a long way in saving a life...


TOBY
Toby is an adorable 9-month-old Aussie mix who needs a forever home to call his own. His vetting and neuter have already been done thanks to a wonderful local rescue, so he only needs $50 sponsorship to cover his transport to the Northeast.

Sponsorship: $50
Raised so far: $50
FULLY SPONSORED!!






JOSIE & CLYDE
Josie and her son Clyde are gorgeous purebred boxers. They were to be surrendered to a very high-kill shelter, but luckily some nice police officers intervened and contacted local rescues to try and help. We found out about this pair just in time, and now we hope to get them to Connecticut where they will find wonderful forever homes. :) A very generous local rescue is paying for the vetting for these 2 dogs, so we only need to raise $50 each to cover their transport costs to the Northeast.

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


Josie on the left, and Clyde on the right:



4 BOXER/SHEPHERD PUPS
These 4 cuties signed up for our Puppy Promises program! This means they will 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. Each pup needs $50 in sponsorship to cover their shots, deworming, and transport to the Northeast.

Sponsorship (all 4 pups): $200
Raised so far: $200
FULLY SPONSORED!!



VANILLA and HER 9 PUPS
Vanilla and her newborn puppies were surrendered to one of our fosters. Vanilla so deserves a forever home of her own, and these pups deserve a chance at a good life. Please won't you help us save them? Sponsorship for the entire family of 10 is $650, which will cover shots & deworming for the pups, full vetting & spay fo momma, and transport for all to the Northeast.

Sponsorship (for the entire family): $650
Raised so far: $338
Still needed: $312




4 LAB/SHEPHERD MIX PUPS
These 4 pups are also part of our Puppy Promises program. Each pup needs $50 in sponsorship to cover their shots, deworming, and transport to the Northeast.

Raised so far: $106

10 WEIMARANER/AUSTRALIAN SHEPHERD PUPS

Sponsorship (all 10 pups): $500

6 LAB MIX PUPS
This litter of 6 is part of our Puppy Promises program. Since these pups are older, we will also be spaying/neutering them prior to transport to their rescue.
