***PLEASE NOTE*** My name is Jeannie Burns, and I live in IL.  I started this fundraiser on behalf, and at the request of , Old Fella Rescue.  All proceeds will go to them.  I am also one of the administrators of the Facebook page mentioned below.

BIG AND SMALL PLEASE HELP THEM ALL - Please be an advocate for the dogs and cats of Burke County, Ga. The situation is dire and animal cruelty, neglect, abandonment, and starvation is out of control 
in this 800 square mile county with no county wide animal services.

We are asking Burke County officials to help with this problem, and unfortunately, August of this year would be the soonest due to the fiscal budget. Until then, we need your help!

The rescue that works hard to save animal's lives in this area is struggling and desperate for help. Funding is scarce and donations are few. They need your support with this overwhelming and heartbreaking task of
saving as many as they can.

Donations are needed for spay/neuter, regular and emergency vetting, transporting dogs to a no kill shelter up north, heart worm treatments, and the list goes on and on.
Please donate any amount. No donation is too small. BE THE

We thank those who have donated to our fundraiser. Money is the crucial factor in helping the rescue continue what they do, and to get more of the abused, neglected, starving, and homeless strays off the street, rehabilitated, and placed into loving homes.
