I’ve found an animal and cannot keep it. What should I do?
This is the most common question we get and, unfortunately, there are limited options. You can try to find a home through the newspaper or through local veterinarians. You can also list the animal on websites like www.craigslist.org or www.petfinder.com. Both have places to list rescued animals for adoption. If you have a purebred dog for adoption, search www.spotsociety.org for a breed rescue group that may be able to help.
We do not accept animals only from shelters. If you are willing to foster the animal in your home until it is placed, we will place a courtesy listing on our Petfinder site. The animal must be spayed/neutered before placement and we will help locate a low-cost option for that.
If you absolutely cannot keep the pet, the only other local option is placement through Walton County Animal Control. Unfortunately, only a small percentage of those pets are placed. In a perfect world we would find homes for all pets, but we are tackling a large problem and resources just aren’t available.
I’d like to volunteer. What opportunities are available?
We have lots of different options available, including:
- Fostering pets
- Adoption events
- Fundraising events
- Humane education
- School Ambassdor program (for children)
- Any other area you may have an expertise or interest in!
Contact us at 770-207-1896 or email email@example.com if you would like to volunteer.
I don’t have time to volunteer, but I’d still like to help.
Actually, most of our supporters don’t have time to volunteer. Any donation, large or small, will help us meet our goal of ending the euthanasia of adoptable homeless pets in Walton County, GA. We are an all-volunteer organization and all the money raised goes to support our programs, like subsidized spay/neuter surgeries, adoption events, educational materials, and medical expenses for our foster pets. These programs are not possible without the support of donors in our community.
