Waynesboro Animal Rescue needs help

We are a 501c3 Non Profit Organization animal rescue in Waynesboro, MS. We started rescuing animals last year, and got really into it, and couldnt stop because there was an animal needing us every other day. We decided to slowly build a rescue shelter with 10x10 kennels on a farm. We are growing slowly, but surely. We have been donated about 9 large kennels over the past year (thank you guys) , but in desperate need of many more. There have been many litters of dumped, sick, weak , and starving puppies here in Waynesboro, and we have rescued as many litters as we could. Wayne County has so many, and it is very heart breaking. I am putting this donation account online because a lot of people can donate quicker this way, and there have been many requests to make a way to donate straight to the WAR account at First State Bank.

Deanna and I are over our heads with rescuing, and we are a bit overwhelmed right now, and we feel helpless because we are in need of lots of things before we can go and rescue every animal we come across. We dont want to hesitate when we need to go out on a rescue, but for now we have to, because we run low on funds often. If we could raise some money to buy kennels, get vet treatments, vaccination shots (very expensive) and buy dip, wormer, etc, etc, we wouldnt have to worry. We want to save all of them we are contacted about, but we need the community's help if you all want to see it happen. If you want to see that stray on the street in town come to WAR, and for us to change that baby's life for the better, everyone could donate a little every month, and we could do it! It takes a team effort of animal lovers to help the voiceless. We are not rich, we dont get state grants or loans, we simply run off local donations that help us everytime we pick up an animal.

We are a no kill shelter, and we are getting full of fur babies here lately, so it makes it hard for us to rescue more that need us if we dont have the funds, dont have the kennels, dont have the supplies, and dont have money for vet care.  We are so appreciiative of those who have stepped up to make a donation, bring supplies, food, have fundraisers, and buy us kennels. Because of you, we have rescued over 250 animals since we started. We cant do it alone. Rescuing is supported by a community, and for the rescue to stay on it's feet, we need your help. Please donate whatever you like. It all adds up! God bless you animal lovers! We pray to continue with your help., and please stop by our rescue anytime and meet our babies if you're interested in adopting <3 at 521 Boyles Rd Waynesboro, MS 39367
