Friends of DeKalb Animals is an all volunteer based 501(c)3 non-profit initiative formed to save the lives of at least 50 animals each month in the metro Atlanta area. We raise funds needed to vet and transport these animals from local high kill animal control facilities to our pre-approved rescue partners in the northeast. 100% of all donations go to the vetting and transport of these animals giving them a chance to live and find loving homes.
*The cost to vet and transport each animal is approximately $250, and all donations are fully tax-deductible as the law allows*
We periodically take in special needs cases that require long-term care and incur much higher vet costs. Your donations combined with low-cost vetting and transport make it possible for animals to walk out of these high kill facilities to a new life. The alternative for many of them is grim and heartbreaking.
