April Showers bring May f̶l̶o̶w̶e̶r̶s̶ puppies :)

We have 3 new litters that have been signed up with our Puppy Promises program in Georgia in hopes of finding their new forever homes. 
 
As a small nonprofit organization, we cannot do this important work without your help. Please consider donating a few dollars to help these puppies (21 in all) in their journey. All donations are tax-deductible and 100% goes directly to the puppies (vet exams, food, vaccinations, deworming, health certificates, transportation, etc) and their moms (spay surgery for her & all other pets in the household).


Thank you in advance for your help in spreading the word! :)

Litter of 10 Springer/Cattle Dog Mix Puppies

These 10 little pups are the babies of a springer spaniel mix momma and a cattle dog daddy. Thankfully, their owners signed them up for our Puppy Promises program where they will avoid the uncertain fate of a high-kill shelter, and instead be transferred to a no-kill rescue where they will be placed in their forever homes.  

We rely solely on donations and could really use your help saving these sweet babies. Each pup needs a little over $50 in sponsorship fees to cover their vet exams, puppy shots, deworming -- and the spay/neuter surgeries of their momma & daddy.

Total Needed: $525
Raised So Far: $424
Still Need: $101



Litter of 3 Pit Mix Puppies

February Fundraiser - "Dodging The Storms" Transport

The crazy winter weather on the East Coast is making our transport work a little difficult.  However, we've assembled a small group of pups to head north to rescue in between the next storms, and they need YOUR help with donations to cover their costs for vetting and transport!!

Each of these pups will receive a vet exam, all age-appropriate shots, and a Health Certificate.  Also,  because these litters are from our Puppy Promises program, we pay to have the mother dog of each litter spayed, as well as any other dogs AND cats in the puppy owner's household!!  Your donation to Saving Shelter Pets helps these puppies AND prevents future unwanted litters!!

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.

Happy New Year From SSP!!

Hello all from Saving Shelter Pets!! We hope your New Year is off to a fabulous start!!  Below are a few miscellaneous SSP items of interest:

DECEMBER TRANSPORT - Last month we successfully raised funds for our 100th rescue transport!!  All of the pups were safely transported to their rescues, and should be well on their way to happy homes.  Thanks so much to everyone who helped!!

THE GIVEAWAY - As part of our December transport fundraiser, one of our awesome supporters donated a $50 Amazon gift card.  She asked that we give the card to one randomly  chosen individual who donated to the transport (including our regular monthly donors).

THE WINNER - Earlier this week, we set up the random drawing for the giveaway (using the Random Sequencer on the Random.org website).  AND, the winner of the Amazon gift card is:  Lynn Christian!!

Congratulations Lynn!!  We'll be in touch to make mailing arrangements for the card.

UP NEXT - A happy update for one of our pups!!  Stay tuned for our next blog post!!

ALSO - We are getting together a small (we think) group of homeless puppies for our next rescue effort. Look for our fundraiser featuring adorable puppy pictures soon!!

Thanks to each and every one of you for your support this past year!!  We look forward to working with you to save many more precious lives in 2013!!
