The Maggie Society has rescued a record number of furbabies the past few months with the help of our amazing volunteers and fosters!  However, 95% of these dogs are not healthy when rescued.  Just in the past few weeks we have had to treat broken bones, tumors, demodexia, mange, heartworms and parvo.  Our vet bill is through the roof! Any and every donation counts! Please consider donating so that we can pay our bill!  The Maggie Society believes that every furbaby deserves a second chance at life and with your help, we can continue to make that second chance a reality!

Here is a write-up in the Wilson Times about the recent HUGE rescue!

"No dogs left behind. That was the mission this past weekend when the Maggie Society teamed up with its sister agency Wags Rescue out of Pennsylvania and rescued dozens of dogs from shelters and the streets in an effort to give them a new home.

Together the nonprofits rescued 120 dogs and 13 kittens, which were transported to Pennsylvania on Monday. Lauri Robl Brumfield, founder of Maggie Society in Wilson, said volunteers headed out to Wilson County and Johnston County shelters.

"We took all available dogs,” she said.

While the Maggie Society transports rescued dogs once a month to its sister organization Wags, this trip gave Wags volunteers and board members a chance to make a trip to Wilson and meet shelter staff face to face as well as spend time with Maggie Society volunteers, officials said.

"It helps us to continue our relationship with our sister group,” said Emily Schnarr of Wags Rescue. She said the goal is to find the rescue dogs good homes. Otherwise, they could die in the shelters.

While the two agencies work hours each week over the phone, through Facebook and even by email, this once a year trip gave volunteers a chance to connect one on one.

"We do this every year,” Robl Brumfield said. "They come down to visit shelter staff face to face and meet our fosters face to face. They get to physically walk into the shelter and get that dog out of the kennel.”

But this year’s trip put a snag in their plans due to the weather that swept through Wilson and beyond. Volunteers had to keep pushing back the day of transport to Pennsylvania due to the snow-covered roads.

Robl Brumfield said they wanted to ensure the dogs and volunteers arrived at their destination safely. But once the weather cleared, Wags volunteers left Wilson Monday with many dogs who are now up for adoption.

"They brought down two vans,” Robl Brumfield said. She said the annual mission is also a chance for Wags volunteers to go out with Maggie Society volunteers and rescue dogs, wherever they may be.

The Maggie Society works closely with the Wilson County shelter each week. "
