Rome Start of Winter Trip '18

Hi everybody! We are going back to Rome October 6th. 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 have able to fix SO MANY recently and have more people wanting their animals fixed! We desperately need funds for this, as we have completely run out bc so many have been helped! There have been countless litters stopped, and we even have a "wait list" for more to be fixed. We want to continue this and keep fixing as absolutely many as we can. 

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. We also know that the next time we go out all of the animals that we helped will have absolutely nothing again, no food and nothing soft to lay their heads on, and want to bring them at least some comfort and love. There are literally 100's of chained dogs that have absolutely NOTHING, not even a dog house to keep them out of the elements. There are 1000's of cats that are strays and have nothing as well. The cold weather is coming, and we'd like to go out and start getting hay/cedar to keep the dogs warm. We will need dog houses that are in good shape as well, as so many of them are in dilapidated conditions that they do not protect them from the elements. 

We are desperate to get as many animals food, houses, hay/cedar, flea meds, treats, and other comforts as possible as well as get them fixed. We will always take donations of food, hay/cedar, prevents, toys, and Home Depot gift cards. We are always desperate for volunteers and would love any help. 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. Spaying/neutering is a priority.

Each time we go, we really try to educate this community on proper animal care and how they can help themselves. It's not easy, but we'll be doing it again on this trip. HelpingPawz Inc. is a 501c3 if you prefer to donate through PayPal we can send you a receipt.  Thank you from the bottom of our hearts and the animals hearts. You don't know how much they appreciate it.
