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 Metro Atlanta and surrounding counties. 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 alternative for many of them is grim and heartbreaking.
*The cost to vet and transport each animal is approximately $250, and all donations are fully tax-deductible as the law allows*
Periodically, FODA takes in elderly and special needs cases that require long-term care and incur much higher vet costs. Some of these animals become permanent hospice animals with our amazing fosters where they are allowed to live out the remainder of their lives knowing the love they have never received in the past. It is only through your support that we are able to continue our lifesaving mission for the animals in the Metro Atlanta area and beyond
