Default Safe Have Furever Pet Rescue - Quick Update for 6/4/2018

Here is a quick update from Bill on how things are going with the Safe Haven Furever Pet Rescue.. (and a few end results thanks to us)

Here is a recap of monies used from Safe Haven Furever Pet Rescue-

$2230.00 was pledged to help prevent dogs from being euthanized for no reason other than human ignorance...... Those monies resulted in 26 dogs being rescued by 9 DIFFERENT rescue organizations.....4 in Georgia, 2 in NY; 1 each in Florida, Ct and SC. We have saved 26 dogs (and counting) with the money raised, all of whom wouldn’t be here today if not for us.

$700 - donated for additional kennels to be placed on the property of a Tennessee foster, who primarily fosters pits and bully breeds that others won't take. He does this for Hamburg Mutts in New York. This will increase by 2 the number of dogs he can foster on his property/farm in Tennessee before they go to New York, and of course as they do, we keep rescuing 2 additional dogs for the 2 kennels We are providing

Finally, because We are a 501C3 nonprofit and subsequently with my license from the Ga. Dept of Agriculture, I have been able to free an ADDITIONAL 20+ DOGS FOR OUT OF STATE RESCUES THAT DO NOT HAVE THE GA. LICENSE TO PULL DOGS FROM THE SHELTERS. This is without using donation money!! At this time the donation monies have all been used. This is a lifelong marathon to save dogs so the GoFundMe page will remain for donations into the future.
Two special thanks go to JP Cohen for his larger donation and Kevin Struss for his donation and subsequent auction with proceeds going to the rescue. And last but not least, we appreciate everyone who has voiced support through donations or and/or their moral support. The dogs appreciate it the most.

Bill

Can be sign up for Amazon Smiles? If he does and provided the link we can all donate automatically any time we purchase from Amazon. Not an endorsement of Amazon. But for those who are going to buy something from them anyway...

As a 501c3 he can get set up for this through Amazon.

Default two more auctions up

There are two more auctions up to benefit the Safe Haven right now. Thanks to the generosity of the net54 community, the previous auctions raised $537 for the Safe Haven.

Here is an update from Bill a few days ago. On a side note I took in 2 more doggies dumped on our street approximately a month ago. We now have 6 great doggies all dumped and also 2 rescue fosters at the moment. Both of the fosters were 2 hours from being put down....now they are going to out of state rescues where they will live long, happy lives. The pics below are only a few of the recent doggies Safe Haven Furever has saved.

"Update on Safe Haven Furever and saving doggies.....The great news is that we have now saved over 100 dogs. One way is through pledges, so that when dogs have about $250-$400.00 pledged, a rescue is more likely to commit to saving the dog as the money goes to them and offsets much of their vet bills, transports etc. Unfortunately, donations have dropped off lately and we are unable to personally pledge more at the moment. However, we are still able to save MANY dogs since I have a Ga. Dept of Agriculture license which allows me to "pull" the dog from a shelter. We do this for a number of out of state rescues who contact me since they do not have the Ga. license but wish to save the dog(s).
So while we can continue to use my license to save them without any expense, we need additional donations to continue pledging (when possible.) In one shelter alone, there are probably 15 or so new dogs every week who are at risk of being killed, so the donations go pretty quickly. But an average pledge of $75.00, added to other pledges, generally is enough to get a commitment by a rescue. So here is a big THANKS to all of you who have previously donated, and may donate in the future, as WE REALLY appreciate your help!!

many thanks
Bill Latzko
