August 2015 Transports

On August 15th we ran our first transport in 2 months. Fear of canine influenza in the Atlanta area had us in a holding pattern to avoid the possibility of transporting dogs potentially infected with the virus to our northeast partners.  Sweet Bernadette pictured below went through the wringer when she contracted canine influenza while being treated for heart worms!  Bernadette was a real trouper and is once again happy, healthy  and ready to find her forever family!  We are happy to report that 8 of the 40 dogs had pre-approved adopters waiting to adopt them when they arrived! Click on Bernadette’s photo to see all of the dogs that FODA vetted and transported on August 15th.  If you would like to help FODA continue saving the lives of animals in need in the Metro Atlanta area,  consider a one time donation or a monthly recurring donation.  Just click the DONATE button to the right!We can’t do it without you, remember:

June 2015 Transports

Sweet Merlot pictured below is one of a litter of 8 puppies that were dumped on a tennis court in Clayton County.  He and his brother and sisters left on June 6th along with 39 other dogs and puppies to find loving homes in the northeast.   June 6th is our first transport since the 28th of March due to rising vetting costs but we are committed to continue our lifesaving mission for the animals.   Please help us save the lives of animals like Merlot and so many others in danger of losing their lives in kill shelters in the metro Atlanta area.  Click on the photo of Merlot to see all of the animals on this weekend’s transport.

March 2015 Transports

On March 28th, FODA left Metro Atlanta with 35 lucky dogs and puppies headed to our Partner Rescues in the northeast to find loving forever homes.  Dogs from Henry, Fulton, Hall and Clayton counties as well as owner surrendered puppies from DeKalb and Clayton county were cared for by our FODA Foster team, vetted by our amazing veterinarians and transported with love by Chrissy and Kelly!  We rescued Truman below from Henry County Animal Control after a failed adoption found him back at that kill shelter. Truman’s luck changed!  Click on his photo to see all the other great southern dogs on this transport trip.

February 2015 Transports

Winston is stunned, shocked, amazed, and one super happy dog!  He is one of 60 dogs that were transported to safety with our northeast partner rescues on FODA’s February 7th transport!  Winston, who was seriously underweight when he was rescued by FODA locally was adopted within days of arriving in NY!  If you click on the photo of Winston below, you will see photos of all the pups that were rescued and vetted in the Metro Atlanta area by FODA and then caught the bus for a ride north to new lives!
