Update, May 13 - DEADLINE is TONIGHT!! We MUST raise the funds to save these adorable dogs, and it's REALLY getting down to the wire!!

We're SOOOO close!!! Can you spare just a little to help us meet our fundraising goal?

We are broke (like everyone else these days), and we do NOT have the money to cover the bills for these dogs. This fundraiser is critical to SSP!! PLEASE help us help them, and so that we may continue to rescue more in the future. Donations of any size are welcome - every little bit helps!!

SSP Transport #69 is gearing up to head north!! We have a few shelter dogs from Georgia that need funds to cover their vetting, S/N surgery, and transport costs to get to their rescue in the Northeast. And of course it wouldn't be an SSP transport without a few litters of adorable Puppy Promises puppies! These kids need vetting and transport funds too, and part of the money raised for them is used to spay their mother and sterilize any other unaltered pets in the family household!! Yay!!

Here are the candidates that need funds to get out of Georgia and on their way to a new life. Won't you please make a donation to help them? Any amount helps. Thanks as always for your support!!



This fluffy little Chow mix just craves attention and cuddling - he actually cries sometimes when you talk to him! He needs to be in a loving home, not sitting all alone in a shelter.

Funds needed: $200
Raised so far: $165


Alert eyes, wagging tail, HUGE paws - yep, it's a Lab pup!! All Sam wants is someone to love. Please help Sam get to rescue so he can find a Lab family to take him home and love him, so he can adore them forever.

Funds needed: $200
Raised so far: $175


This sweetie lost his first home because his family didn't feel like taking care of his skin condition. The vet says it's nothing more than allergies, and he just needs a second chance. With your help, we can do that!

Funds needed: $200
Raised so far: $150


Willow is camera shy so we don't yet have a picture of her - but we're told she is an adorable little Shar Pei princess!! And a shelter is NO place for a princess. Let's get her north to find a family she can reign over and call her own!

Funds needed: $200
Raised so far: $155


Look at those eyes and that sad hound face - need we say any more! This poor boy clearly wants to get out of that cage and into a home with a family that loves him. How can we turn him down?

Funds needed: $200
Raised so far: $155


Attention Doxie lovers!! Oliver is a pure-bred Doxie, and will surely be adopted in a flash from a rescue the Northeast - we just need the funds to get him there. Can you help?

Funds needed: $200
Raised so far: $160


This lovable little guy is a JRT mix - and he's going stir crazy in the shelter. Let's get him out of there and into a home that will give him plenty of space to run and jump and play!!

Funds needed: $200
Raised so far: $155

Blue Heeler Pups, litter of 3

These three fuzzy kids are Puppy Promises puppies, looking for funds for their big trip north. They heard that families in the Northeast will love them and take care of them, and they know that nobody in Georgia wants them. Please donate so they can travel on this next transport.

Funds needed: $150
Raised so far: $75

Pittie pups, litter of 10

What's cuter than a wheelbarrow full of Pittie puppies? Not much!! SSP has two rescues that will take care of these kids from Puppy Promises. Many Pitties never stand a chance in Georgia or anywhere else, so please help us get these little ones on their way to a better life.

Funds needed: $500
Raised so far: $275

Ridgeback pups, litter of 7

These guys certainly look like a big tub full of cuteness and fun! It's not their fault that their family can't take care of them and doesn't want them. But, with your help, we can get them into loving homes to call their very own.

Funds needed: $350
Raised so far: $240

Ridgeback pups, litter of 3

Yes, it's another litter of Ridgeback pups! These fuzzy kids are waiting patiently and dreaming of traveling north, to find loving homes and families of their own. Will you help SSP make their dreams come true?

Funds needed: $150
Raised so far: $105
