On August 1st, a momma dog and her 12 puppies were left at the Fort Bend Animal Shelter in Texas. The puppies are very young, around 4 weeks old only, leaving them very vulnerable to potentially getting very sick in the shelter environment. As the days went by, members of The No Kill Project watched with high hopes that a local rescue would be able to help this family. But knowing, that local shelters are overextended and over capacity, these hopes were not fulfilled. The sadness in the mom's eyes is palpable and you can tell she has lived far too much in her few years on Earth; this is not her first litter. From all the way in the East coast, this sadness was felt by all our members.
As hope waned that a rescue would pull them, we, The No Kill Project, decided that it was time to step in and help. With the help of an amazing couple willing to help transport them to NY, we at The No Kill Project are going to help. But as fate would have it, upon speaking to shelter staff in Texas, it was learned that on the same day that arrangements for their pull were being made, 16 more puppies from two different litters were left at the shelter...
Now we were faced with a hard decision. Taking on 29 dogs is a hard challenge for a small rescue in the northeast. However, the thought of leaving them behind when we could save them all and find them loving, forever homes was too much to bear. The opportunity for transport is hard enough and saving 29 lives is just a risk we have to take. So we have agreed to help them. Now we need your help. Full vetting of 28 puppies and a momma dog is going to be incredibly expensive. This is a large undertaking but we have to try. We have to take away the sadness in the mom's eyes, give her a chance for a good and loving life, and most importantly making sure she never has to have another litter of puppies again. The 28 puppies will have a chance to find the homes they deserve.
We need help. This is a massive rescue mission for us.
The money that is being raised is for spay/neuter of 29 dogs, heartworm testing, flea and tick medications, vaccinations, rabies vaccinations, fecal tests, wellness exams, heartworm medications, and for anything else these beautiful dogs will need.
We are a 501(c)3 non-profit animal rescue. All donations are tax exempt. You can reach us on our facebook page or by email at email@example.com,
or through this fundraiser for updates.
To the 29 beautiful souls coming our way...we promise to do everything we can to ensure you will be completely medically cared for. We promise to find you loving homes. We promise to do our due diligence in finding you these homes with mandatory home visits, reference checks, veterinary references, adoption fees, and legally liable contracts. We promise to love you. We promise you full bellies and soft beds.
Please consider helping us.
