SSP Transport #72 - Dog Days of Summer

SSP Rescue #72 - Dog Days of Summer

UPDATE, Wednesday August 19 - LAST DAY FOR FUNDS!! The animals MUST have funding to get to their rescues. PLEASE DONATE - Every little bit helps!! Deadline is TONIGHT!!

We are still reeling over the untimely passing of Lexie, one of our dogs from this transport (see our latest blog entry), but we still must raise funds for the other dogs going to rescue. PLEASE help if you can!!


The dogs shown below are all hoping to travel north on our Rescue #72. And we have received $1225 in donations in the past month thru Facebook Causes and recurring donations, so we only need half of our usual sponsorship donations for each dog. :) :)

This is the first time in our 3+ year history we've had funds available to partially offset our expenses for a rescue operation, and we sure hope it's a trend that continues!!

Please help us with the funds needed to get each of these VERY deserving dogs vetted and on their way to happy lives with loving families. Donations of any amount are always welcome, and are tax-deductible as allowed by law. Thanks as always for your valued support!!

CLICK HERE TO DONATE



Litter of 3 Terrier pups




Check out the ears on these little cuties!! They're from our Puppy Promises program, and they each need $25 for their vetting and transport to rescue (plus spay/neuter for their mom and other animals in their current household). Please donate to help SSP get them on their way!!

Total Needed: $75
Funds Raised: $25
STILL NEED: $50


Litter of 6 Lab/Shepherd pups


These kids are part of our Puppy Promises program too, and they are excited to get to their rescue up north because they know that families are waiting there to adopt and love them. They each need $25 for vetting and transport (and spay/neuter for their mom and other household companions).

Total Needed: $150
Funds Raised: 25
STILL NEED: $125


Litter of 2 Lab mix pups



These two little guys are orphans who have no one to take care of them in Georgia. Luckily they found SSP, and we promised them we'd get them a rescue!! One of our NJ rescues has committed to them, so we just need funds (only $25 each) to get them on their way!! Please donate to help us keep our promise to them.

Total Needed: $50
Funds Raised: $50
FULLY SPONSORED!!


Gunner and Shelby


This brother and sister pair are gorgeous, aren't they? Gunner, the little boy, is all black with a spotted tongue and his sister Shelby has very unusual brindle coloring. Their unique looks should make them popular with adopting families in the Northeast. They need just $25 each for vetting and transport expenses to get on their way.

Total Needed: $50
Funds Raised: $25
STILL NEED: $25


Litter of 7 Lab mix pups


This big litter of Puppy Promises pups has nowhere to go in Georgia, and they need SSP's help to stay out of the Murray County shelter. They'll be adopted quickly in the Northeast, and $25 each gets them their vetting & transport (plus spay/neuter for their mom & other pets in their household).

Total Needed: $175
Funds Raised: $65
STILL NEED: $110


Chip
(waiting for picture)

Chip is an adorable Doxie mix puppy with a fondness for snack food!! His foster mom named him "Chip" after he stole a bag of Doritos and hid under her couch with them. Chip is an orphan, found wandering all alone on a road in rural northern Georgia, and he needs just $25 to get to a rescue and make a fresh start on his life.

Total Needed: $25
Funds Raised: $0
STILL NEED: $25


Lexie


Lexie is a sweet little Hound/Doxie mix who was running out of time in the Murray County shelter, when an SSP volunteer saw her sweet face in an e-mail. We arranged for an extension on her time at the shelter, and now we need funds to save her life. Will you help us get Lexie out of the shelter and in to a rescue? Donations are needed for her vetting, spay surgery, and transport.

Total Needed: $100
Funds Raised: $75
STILL NEED: $25


Lacey


This girl has a pretty smile, but unfortunately - she doesn't have a home in Georgia. With a little help from SSP and our supporters, she can find a fabulous home through a rescue in New Jersey that couldn't say no to that face! She is already vetted including her spay, so she needs just $50 for her journey north. Then she'll really have something to smile about!!

Total Needed: $50
Funds Raised: $20
STILL NEED: $30


Sally


Poor Sally knows that hounds are everywhere in Georgia so she has a tough time standing out in the crowd. The best hope for this girl from DeKalb Co is to hop on an SSP transport to the Northeast, where adoptive families will surely appreciate her sweet and trusting nature. She is vetted and spayed already, so she needs just $50 to get on her way to a better life.

Total Needed: $50
Funds Raised: $50

Litter of 6 Black Lab pups


There sure are a lot of Lab puppies on this transport, and here are six more!! We don't have a picture yet, but everyone knows how precious lab puppies are - how could they be anything else? These are Puppy Promises kids, so they need $25 each to cover vetting, transport, and the all-important spay/neuter for their mom and other animals in their current household.

Total Needed: $150
Funds Raised: $35
STILL NEED: $115


Bo


Bo is a handsome Golden mix boy, and really friendly too. Bo's owners were elderly, and when one died and the other went into assisted living - poor Bo was left all by himself! Bo's chances of being adopted from a Georgia shelter are not good, because he's a pretty big fella. BUT - for $100 (to cover vetting, neuter, transport), we can get this big fluffy boy to a new family in the Northeast!!


Total Needed: $100
Funds Raised: $100

Goofy


Picture a Hound/Poodle mix, with the coloring of a Hound and curly Poodle fur on its back. Well, that's Goofy! :) He loves everyone and everything he sees too! His unique look and happy attitude will surely win him lots of fans at the CT rescue that is waiting for him. SSP needs just $100 for his vetting, neuter, and transport - and then he's on his way!!

Total Needed: $100
Funds Raised: $100

Litter of 6 Hound/Lab/Chow pups


We're waiting for pics of these fluffy kids, but we hear they are adorable!! However, even the cutest puppies have trouble finding good homes in Georgia, so these kids enrolled in SSP's Puppy Promises program and a NJ rescue will take them if we can raise $25 each for their vetting and transport (plus spay/neuter for other animals in their current household).

Total Needed: $150
Funds Raised: $35
STILL NEED: $115
