PUPPY MADNESS!! Please help get transport #93 on the road

UPDATE, Monday, July 25 - Our earlier issue with the donation link has been resolved. And our deadline of TOMORROW NIGHT still stands!! Please donate to help us save these puppies if you possibly can. Thanks!!

It's summer and we are officially full-swing into "puppy season". So far, we have 47 pups signed up through our Puppy Promises program and we really need your help in getting them out of Georgia into the safety of no-kill rescues in the Northeast.

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.

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 where it says [+] Donation Designation on the last page of your Paypal transaction.

Litter of 6 Pittie Mix Pups

These 6 cuties have no chance at all in Georgia due to their mom's breed. Please won't you help us get these pittie mix pups up North where they can find their forever homes? And most importantly, part of their sponsorship covers the spay surgery for their momma so no more puppies for her! :)






Total Needed: $325
Raised So Far: $325
Fully sponsored - thanks!! :)


1 Lone Fluffy Pup
This furball was signed up to our Puppy Promises program, but doesn't seem to have any siblings. He needs $100 sponsorship to travel to his rescue in Connecticut where he will find a forever home.



Total Needed: $100
Raised So Far: $100
Fully Sponsored - Thanks!! :)


Litter of 5 Aussie/Terrier Mix Pups
How adorable are these pink-nosed pups? Each one just needs $55 in sponsorship to cover their puppy shots, deworming, vet exam, health certificate, transport to rescue, and spay surgery of their momma.





Total Needed: $275
Raised So Far: $245
Still Needed: $30

Litter of 9 Basset/Beagle Mix pups
Thankfully these little guys avoided the dangerous shelter environment and instead joined our Puppy Promises program. Momma is a basset/beagle mix who really wants to see her babies find new homes in the Northeast. Please consider sponsoring these 9 pups to cover their vetting & transport costs... and spay momma so she doesn't have anymore pups in the future!




Total Needed: $475
Raised So Far: $440
Still Needed: $35

Litter of 5 boxer/shep pups (UPDATE!)
These 5 pups have been passed over several times, so we're really hoping to get them on July's transport. Since they are 5 months old now, we have to get them spayed & neutered prior to transport to the Northeast.... with 4 females in this litter, we certainly don't want them reproducing to create even more pups! Thanks to everyone's generous donations last month, this litter's vetting & transport costs are already covered, so we now just need to raise money to cover their spay & neuter surgeries.



Total Needed (for s/n surgeries): $300
Raised So Far: $300
Fully sponsored - Thanks!! :)


Litter of 5 Mixed-Up Mutts
We're not quite sure what breed these pups are. Momma is a pit, but no idea who daddy is. Please consider donating a few bucks to help them avoid the fate of the high-kill shelter and so that they can live long, happy lives in the Northeast!





Total Needed: $275
Raised So Far: $240
Still Needed: $35



Litter of 2 Black Pups
These 2 mixed-breed pups have signed up for our Puppy Promises program and just need help with their sponsorship fees to get them to the Northeast where they will find forever homes. Unfortunately, we only have a photo of 1 of the 2 pups at this time.

Update: Sadly, these pups will not be rescued. One has gone missing and the other has died while staying at their owners' residence. :( We have applied their funds raised to other dogs.



RIP little one, and prayers for your missing sibling. :(

Total Needed: N/A
Raised So Far: N/A
Still Needed: N/A



Litter of 3 rottie/lab mix pups
Mom is a rottie/lab mix, and as with most of our Puppy Promises litters, the father is unknown. These kids know that larger dogs have difficulty finding homes in Georgia, so they want to get out while they can!! Please consider donating a few bucks to help these pups get to their rescue in the Northeast.




Total Needed: $205
Raised So Far: $215
Fully Sponsored!! :) Thanks!!




Litter of 3 JRT pups
These 3 girls want a home to call theirs. They just need a little help with sponsorship to get to their rescue. Let's help them get on their way to the lives they deserve!! [ sorry - no photos yet! ]



Total Needed: $205
Raised So Far: $205
Fully Sponsored - Thanks!! :)


Litter of 4 mystery pups
These pups are about 2 and a half months old. There are 3 females and one male. Unfortunately, we do not know their breed and have no photos at this time, but we will update this blog as soon as we have more details!

Update: We now have pics (see below), and they are fuzzy little black kids - adorable!! :)





Total Needed: $225
Raised So Far: $225
Fully sponsored!! Thanks!! :)
