Despite being affected by the prolonged effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, many of our supporters have generously given to our cause. We are so thankful for the overwhelming kindness coming our way. Here is a summary of what you, our supporters, have helped us accomplish so far in 2021.
1. We rescued a litter of puppies from certain death
These tiny babies were rescued from the middle of a snowy forest, far from every residential area. It was obvious they had just got snatched away from their mom and abandoned in the freezing temperatures a short time before they were spotted, as they were still alive. Pups that tiny would not have made it for longer than a few hours in those conditions.
After spending some time in a foster home, they are now homed and happy.
2. We saved Dottie
This severely injured and paralyzed tiny dog has now gained trust in people, and is on the way to a new wheelchair and a better life.
3. We doubled our foster home network
A record number of people have signed up to become fosterers this year. Often because they were not ready to own a dog, but still craved canine companionship.
If you’re in a similar situation, don’t hesitate to reach out to us. Fostering a dog can be a mutually beneficial arrangement, both for you and for the dog!
4. We found loving, caring homes for 21 dogs
One of the most important aspects of our work is finding forever homes for our resident dogs. In just 4 months, an amazing 21 dogs under our care have been adopted.
We would like to thank everyone who has adopted a DOG resident this year.

5. We helped, rescued, homed or provided veterinary care for over 50 dogs
Besides homing dogs, we’ve also improved the welfare of over 50 stray dogs. Every life saved is a victory worth celebrating! And we couldn’t have done it without your support.
6. Successful collaboration with Bolt for Valentine’s Day to highlight the importance of adoption
We are so grateful to the entire Bolt team for making this possible. It was a great act of compassion and a wonderful way of giving back to the community!
Such collaborations are an effective way to promote animal welfare in Georgia. And we encourage other businesses and organizations to follow suit.
7. We teamed up with Animal Project to organize the very first one-day festival in Georgia that was all about stray animals
We are especially happy and proud of this. Because it was a first in Georgia. Also because our ultimate goal is to reduce the number of stray animals in the country. And the best way to do that is to convince people of loving and adopting these animals. This event was a major step towards that goal.
