So, here's my plea for donations.
I've mentioned in other threads that I help drive animals that go through PA from a high-kill shelter in SC to rescue groups or private adopters.
The shelter's director works very hard at reducing the kill rate and has a long-term goal of no-kill. Unfortunately, the shelter is in a rural area, so too many animals are turned in, too many animals are not spayed / neutered and the funds they get from the county are REALLY low ($53,000 / year). So, they rely heavily on volunteers (our transport group) and donations.
Right now, they are in dire need of money. There was a shuffle with the board of directors and they lost a major donor. They have a critical plea out for donations so they don't have to have a major PTS (put to sleep).
If anybody here can help donate or share the cause, any little bit helps.
Or, browse animals if you're looking to adopt.
Location is not important! We can get the dog / cat anywhere!
I have helped other posters with their own pleas (here's looking at you, canstruction and gaming for charity. hint hint), so I'm hoping there's a few of you that can help a little.
Here's the link to the fundraiser:
Fortunately, they were able to surpass the July 28th date without a PTS b/c my transport group has been working tirelessly to find rescue groups for their animals, but they still need to raise funds. Rescues are more likely to take dogs / cats that have a clean vet bill (and many dogs come in injured, pregnant and / or with heartworm), so any little bit helps.
Anyway, the animal discussion in the job / unattractive thread made me think of this.
