Litter of 6 Bulldog mix puppies





These sweeties from our Puppy Promises program are excited to get out of Georgia and get to a rescue, so they can start their lives in a loving family instead of a lonely, disease-ridden shelter. They need $50 each for their vetting and transport, plus the spay of their momma and her furry
housemates. We can't let them down - please help!!

Total Needed: $300
Funds Raised: $300

They need $50 each for their vetting and transport plus the spay of their momma and S/N for other dogs and cats in the household. Please help make their dreams come true!!

Total Needed: $350
Funds Raised: $320 (only 6 pups safe!)

Litter of 6 Lab/Hound mix puppies





Labs and hounds (especially black ones) have little chance to get adopted from a Georgia shelter. These kids know they need SSP's help if they're going to have any chance at life. They're Puppy Promises pups too, so they each need $50 for vetting & transport, plus the spay for their momma and her furry housemates. Let's show some love for the Georgia Black Dogs!!

Total Needed: $300
Funds Raised: $280 (only 5 pups safe!)
STILL NEED: $20


Litter of 7 Lab mix puppies





The active kids in this litter of Labs will need big yards and lots of space for their playtime, and the rescue that waiting for them in New York will make sure they get it!! They need YOUR help to cover their expenses though. $50 gets them on their way!!

Total Needed: $350
Funds Raised: $269 (only 5 pups safe!)
STILL NEED: $81

Maizy



Maizy can't understand why no one in Georgia wants her. She's a sweet little dog (a Chi/MinPin mix), and she instantly LOVES everyone she meets. The shelter is no place for this poor girl!! SSP has a rescue waiting for her in Connecticut, and she's already spayed. She needs $100 for her trip there. Please give Maizy a chance!!

Total Needed: $100
Funds Raised: $100.25
FULLY SPONSORED - THANK YOU! :)




June



June is a distinctive 12-week-old Cattle Dog mix pup. She has one brown eye and one blue eye, and unique markings thoughout her body. But alas, despite her gorgeous coloring and her adorable puppy personality, she finds herself homeless. Please help us keep this sweetie out of the Murray Co shelter!! Just $50 gets her to a rescue to start a new life.

Total Needed: $50
Funds Raised: $50
FULLY SPONSORED - THANK YOU! :)



Gunther



Gunther's story is a sad one - he's lived his entire life on the end of a 6-foot chain, and now his owner can't even afford to feed him!! Since there is no animal control facility in his area, Gunther is in great danger unless we can get him to rescue. He needs $200 for his vetting and transport, and for a fresh start in life.

Total Needed: $200
Funds Raised: $200
FULLY SPONSORED - THANK YOU! :)


Litter of 5 Yellow Lab mix puppies




These Lab pups from our Puppy Promises program would like a chance to romp and play in the snow in the Northeast before it all melts. They each need $50, which covers their vetting and transport to their rescue PLUS the spay of their mother dog and any other dogs or cats in the household. Can you help these kids get to the rescue that's waiting for them?

Total Needed: $250
Funds Raised: $250
FULLY SPONSORED - THANK YOU!! :)


Litter of 1 Lab mix puppy



This lab pup is a lone brindle-colored boy whose only littermate had to be euthanized because of some genetic birth defects. But this little guy is completely healthy, a true survivor. He just needs a chance and a loving family to help him grow up big and strong!! We want to give him that chance - will you donate for him? He needs just $50.

Total Needed: $50
Funds Raised: $50
FULLY SPONSORED - THANK YOU! :)


Fozzi Bear



Fozzi is fuzzy Doxie mix, a happy-go-lucky kind of dog who loves all animals and children. He's homeless in Georgia, but he'll surely be adopted quickly in the Northeast. He's already neutered and current on most of his vetting, so he needs just $100 to be on his way to freedom. Won't you please help Fozzie?

Total Needed: $100
Funds Raised: $100
FULLY SPONSORED - THANK YOU! :)


Litter of 7 Chi mix puppies



UPDATE: Unfortunately, the owner of this litter couldn't wait just a few more days to ensure the safety of these pups. They gave them all away locally, and we can only hope that they all ended up in good homes .... and that they will be spayed/neutered. :(

OK, we don't have pictures of these little ones yet - but they're tiny little Chi mixes, and we just know they are ADORABLE!! We also know that they need our help to stay out of the Murray County shelter. Just $50 each gets them on their way to the rescue in New Jersey that is waiting for them. Please donate to help them get there!!




We can't save any of them without YOU - thanks for your support!!
