Xander


Xander is a Aussie / Border Collie mix who is playful and energetic, just as you would expect for his breed mix!!

Can you donate for his vetting and transport expenses, to help him get there?

Total Needed: $200
Funds Raised: $85
STILL NEED: $115


Grace


Grace is a very sweet (a slightly klutzy!) big girl, who knows that Hounds are all too common in Georgia shelters, so she needs SSP's help to get to a rescue in the Northeast where Hounds have a better chance to find a loving forever home. Please help her get to the rescue we have lined up for her!! $200 covers her vetting, spay, and transport.

Total Needed: $200
Funds Raised: $95
STILL NEED: $105


Lucy


Even with her good looks and unusual brindle coloring, Lucy's chances of getting out of the Murray Co shelter are slim. Thankfully, SSP has a rescue lined up for her!! Now, she needs you to donate for her vetting, spay, and transport. Will you please donate to help her? She needs $200 to get out of the shelter and on her way.

Total Needed: $200
Funds Raised: $100
STILL NEED: $100


Patches


Patches is a docile, sweet little Spaniel mix girl whose owner turned her in to the Murray Co shelter. SSP has found a rescue for her, and we believe that this gentle soul really deserves a second chance. She needs $200 to cover her vetting, spay, and transport expenses. Please help us get her to the rescue that is waiting for her!!

Funds Raised: $110
STILL NEED: $90
