Transport 94 - "Dog Days of Summer" Run

The days are a bit shorter, the sun a bit less hot, and the kids are getting ready for the start of school. Like it or not, the end of Summer is upon us. And SSP has one more group of homeless doggies in Georgia that would like to kick off the Fall season in a safe no-kill rescue on their way to a happy home!!

This month, 42 puppies are hoping to make the big trip, but they need your help with funds. In addition to gas & transport costs, each pup needs sponsorship to cover a rabies shot, DHLPP shot, vet exam, deworming, health certificate, bordatella, spay surgery of their mom, and any other related expenses. And, because all of the pups this month are from our Puppy Promises program, the mommas of each litter will be spayed so they can't have more!!

Donations are tax-deductible and 100% goes directly to the dogs you see below. If you would like to designate where your donation goes, simply enter the dog's name (or litter designation) where it says [+] Donation Designation on the last page of your Paypal transaction.
