Rome Fall/Winter Warmth Trip

Hi everybody! If you are new to our cause, we are a group that goes out into Rome, GA to vet, feed, and house the poor animals that are chained or dumped outside with absolutely NOTHING. We know that the next time we go out all of the animals that we helped will have absolutely nothing again. 

We know that so many animals are in need after all of the awful natural disasters, but we cannot forget about our sweet Rome animals that still desperately need our help. They have been affected as well and so many will have nothing again. So many do not have adequate shelter to keep them out of the elements. They have nothing warm or dry to sleep on at night, no food for their hungry bellies. We are going out November 4th or 5th and want to bring lots of hay and cedar for the cold months to come. 

We are part of Helping Pawz, Inc a 501c3. So your donations are TAX DEDUCTIBLE. If you want to make sure we get your entire donation please feel free to donate through paypal, just ask us for the email address. 

There are literally 100's of chained dogs that have nothing, not even a dog house to keep them out of the elements. It will  be getting cold soon and some these sweet dogs only have measley shelter to protect them from the weather. More than not have ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. There are 1000's of cats that are strays and have nothing as well. We are trying to break the cycle and get as many fixed as possible, as well as bring them food and a soft place to lay their heads. It breaks our hearts every time to go out here but we keep doing it for the poor souls that need us. We had so much success fixing SO MANY animals the last few trips, we want to keep it up! Our main focus in the winter is bringing warmth, shelter, and food. We are going the weekend of November 4th & 5th  to pass out as much hay and cedar for the coming bitter cold months, as much food as possible, and to get as many signed up to be fixed as possible. We want to help our Rome sweeties!

We are desperate to get as many animals hay, cedar, and food as possible as well as get them fixed. We will always take donations of cedar, food, prevents, toys, and Home Depot gift cards. The only way we will be able to stop this vicious cycle of unwanted animals is if we get as many cats and dogs fixed as possible as well. 

The thought of these babies without anything warm and dry to sleep on or food to fill their bellies keeps us up at night, we can't stop thinking about them when we are snug in our beds in the rainy nights. We wish we could take them all inside, but we want to do as much as possible for them. We know they will have nothing to lay on but the hard ground. They will have run out of food that we brought them last trip and will be eating scraps again. It is absolutely heartbreaking. They will not get warmth, vetted, food, love, or toys if we do not bring them some. Our hearts ache for these poor babies every time we go. We hope to one day change the laws and change the ways of the younger generation, but for now we can only help any way we can.

We are always desperate for volunteers and could always use as much help as we can get. We need funds to keep fixing as many animals as possible, we have a list of animals on the "wait list" but need to stop them from reproducing. Every dollar that we raise, we will use for these poor animals. How much we can do, depends on what we raise. We are always so appreciative of every single dollar that you donate. It's not easy, but we'll be doing it again on this trip.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. You don't know how much the animals appreciate it.
