Friends of DeKalb Animals has been working hard to save more animals from local kill shelters in the metro Atlanta area and in the process, we have incurred some major vetting costs. Since mid May, we have treated 8 puppies and 1 adult dog for parvo virus and we still have 5 puppies from one litter that are not yet out of the woods. We also took in a tiny little long-haired Chihuahua this month only to find that she had bi lateral luxating patella’s on her rear legs which will require surgical repair. Our vet costs have skyrocketed in the last 3 months. We hope you will consider a donation to help with our costs and allow us to continue our lifesaving mission for the abandoned and unwanted animals in the metro Atlanta area. Below you will see a photo of Bud. This gorgeous boy was left to die in his back yard by his owner who moved without him. With the help of friends and neighbors along with an amazing foster home, we were able to treat this big boy for his heart worms and he left on transport this weekend headed for his new life in NJ!

June has been an extremely challenging month for us. The month began with 4 out of a litter of 5 puppies that we rescued breaking with Parvo.. The great news is that all of them survived thanks to our amazing fosters and the staff at Village Vets in Decatur Ga. We have also taken in several special needs pups in the last few months and this month it was sweet Ella who is a Dwarf Jack Russell Terrier. Ella is heart worm positive and has deformed back legs but she is an absolute doll and we will make sure that she gets everything she needs to survive and thrive. Our transport numbers were low this month but our vetting costs were high. If you are one of our dedicated supporters, please consider an extra donation to help us cover the cost we incurred to save several precious little lives in the month of June.
