November brings some exciting new ways to help us continue our mission for the animals in DeKalb. We are now signed up with several different services that donate a portion of your purchase to FODA when you specify our rescue when you purchase items with Kroger Community Giving, I Give, Fundico and more to come. We will be adding a tab soon that will have all of the links in the same place to make things really simple for our supporters.
Song (pictured below) is so glad that she got a ride north this month since she really wants to find her new home and family soon. Song is joined by 22 other pups from DeKalb Animal Services for the first transport north in October. It costs FODA approximately $175 to vet and transport each animal to safety with our approved northeast rescue groups. Please donate to help us continue our lifesaving mission in DeKalb.
September has been a busy month for FODA. One year ago on September 15th, Xena the Warrior Puppy came into the shelter. We have now added an individual page for Xena where you can read her amazing story. Xena is also paying it forward this month by helping us to raise the funds to treat our latest pup in need, Roo the Resiliant. Roo was part of a multi state dog fighting bust. Roo now has her own Facebook page too if you would like to check her out at https://www.facebook.com/roosrescue Chrissy and Aaron are fostering this sweet girl who has been through so much and is still so loving and gentle. September was a bit of a challenge as well since we had a mechanical problem with the transport vehicle and therefore only had one transport this month. We were able to save 40 pups from DeKalb and hopefully many more in the months to come!
