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!

January 2015 Transports

2015 started out with a bang for 43 Atlanta area homeless and abandoned dogs in need of loving homes.  Pups from DeKalb, Henry, Hall, and Fulton loaded up on the FODA bus on January 10th for a trip up to our partner rescue groups in the northeast.  Many had adoptive homes already waiting for them when they arrived.  Charlie, a Great Dane/Lab mix from Hall County pictured below was adopted within a week of arrival.  If you click on the photo of Charlie you will see all of the dogs that went on transport with us on January 10th. Daphne, Grant and Earl who were long-term fosters with FODA due to medical issues when we took them in to foster,  were completely healed and able to leave on this transport as well.  We were notified that Grant was adopted the weekend after the transport arrived.  Thank you for your continued support to helps us save the lives of animals in need in the metro Atlanta area.

December 2014 Transports

 Our final transport of 2014 transported 22 dogs to safety with our northeast partner rescues.  This brings our total animals transported for 2014 to 594.  We also adopted 16 dogs to loving families locally and currently have 43 dogs in foster that are either hospice dogs or need a little more time for one reason or another before they can travel north.  FODA has taken in many dogs this year that needed extensive medical care and could not have done this without our amazing supporters and equally amazing foster homes.  Our vision for 2015 is to be able to save and transport even more animals from kill shelters in the metro Atlanta area.  Thank you to everyone who has given, fostered, shared, voted and cared enough to support us again in 2014.  If you click on the photo of Noel below you will see all the dogs that were vetted and transported with FODA in December.
