"There is no fundamental difference between man and animals in their mental faculties. Like man, they manifestly feel pleasure and pain, happiness, and misery. Sympathy for the animals is one of the noblest virtues with which man is endowed"
Charles Darwin (1809 - 1882) Naturalist and Author of "The Origin of Species by means of Natural Selection"
I'm bringing home so many happy memories that will not be forgotten from this past howl-o-ween. Everywhere I looked, all I could see was kindness. It was truly inspiring to see how many volunteers were able to work together, collectively, as a unified entity to support the shelter.
The pet parade generated a large audience and was kindly supported by local community members and business such as The Fernbank Museum, The Cupcake People, DJ Audiocake, Excel Gymnastics and Cheer, Jumptastic, BodyPlex, 97.1FM The River, George Aubrey Photography and so many more.
The shelter was able to raise a good amount of money and is on the final stretch of fundraising 30,000 dollars through their "Monster match" fundraiser.
Donate during the month of October all donations will be doubled, up to a grand total of $30,000! So far the shelter has been able to raise 15k+ and has less than 48 hrs to raise as much money as they can. To donate please visit http://georgiaspca.org/georgia-spca-matching-contribution.
In special recognition of monthly recurring donors, their donations will receive an extra match! A $10 donation becomes $30, a $25 donation becomes $75, and so on.
You can set up a recurring donation in any amount through our secured website using a debit or credit card. You can designate your contributions for the general shelter fund, to Compassionate Hearts - our fund for animals with special medical needs - or make a tribute donation honoring a special person or pet. Donations can be changed or stopped at any time.
Thanks so much for supporting Georgia SPCA, and please keep in mind that no donation is too small, to make a difference in a shelter dog's life.
