“We Need a Miracle Today!” That’s what Stacy heard when she learned of this little beagle (named Elton) who was stuck in a high kill shelter, and his time was up. He had a rescue that backed out on him. So there he sat in the shelter, heartworm positive and his time was up. Stacy sat there with her head folded in her hands, knowing that her rescue has already spent over $60,000 in medical expenses this year and they couldn’t really afford another “medical case”. But Stacy couldn’t let Elton die… she said: “Not today!” She committed to save this sweet pup not quite 10 minutes before the transport left. If Elton hadn’t made it on that transport, he would have been euthanized. Stacy said: “I don’t know what it was about him, but I felt that he deserved a chance.” With no foster available, and nowhere for him to go when he arrived at 3:30pm that day, she committed to him. He would come to her house, and she would figure things out, as she has many times in the past.
And with this, Project Hope was born. We needed a way to be able to save more animals and have somewhere for them to go until a foster home could be arranged.
Project Hope is a facility where shelter dogs who are out of time, can go and be safe. Foster based rescues can only save animals that they have committed fosters, so currently, we are limited to how many animals we can save.
At Project Hope, we take shelter animals out of unsafe places… Project Hope is a place where these dogs can go while we are able to arrange foster or find forever homes for them.
At Project Hope, they will stay there during their initial quarantine or as we like to call it “assessment period” is over. During this 10 day period, these dogs will get a much needed bath, get necessary vetting, be tested with kids, cats, other dogs and even get some training! What’s more, we will be able to provide honest answers as to these animals’ personalities when their fosters or adopters ask questions because we will be able to take the time to get to know them first… close and personal.
Project Hope will be equipped with 50 indoor kennels, as well as outdoor kennel space, an outdoor area for the dogs to enjoy, a bathing area, and a training and assessment room.
With Project Hope, we will be able to save 150 dogs a month at minimum!
So this is what we are asking: We need YOUR help to have a Miracle Happen Today! Please consider a donation to raise funds for our facility and the care of these animals. All the money raised will go towards the care of the animals and getting them to safety. Help us minimize the needless deaths that happen on a daily basis in shelters. Every Dollar counts for this project!
It doesn’t take much:
- $3.50 per week or $14 per month or $168 per year feeds one shelter animal.
- $100 pays to transport an animal
- $50 – $75 pays for a spay or neuter
- $750 pays for a parvo treatment (mild case)
- $1,200 pays for a heartworm treatment.
Heartworm, Parvovirus, and Distemper treatments are where most of our medical costs have been spent on this year alone! Elton is in need of a heartworm treatment and needs YOUR help!
