Apologies for the hiatus everyone! With my recent school business, I have been far too busy to put my time into a long and meaningful post.
Today, I thought I would share for you a list of non-profit organizations we fully endorse. Please see the list below, and perhaps choose one (or several!) to help out. As a reminder, many organizations accept assistance other than financial contributions, such as supplies, toys or volunteer hours. Feel free to visit their websites for more information.
Gentle Giants Draft Horse Rescue - Provides rescue and rehabilitation services for draft horses in the slaughter pipeline.
Days End Farm - Rescues and aids horses in poor circumstances, as well as hosting educational workshops for horse owners.
Last Chance Corral - While they accept neglect cases, this rescue primarily focuses on raising and rehoming foals displaced by the nurse mare industry.
Prince Fluffy Kareem - This organization provides important veterinary care, education, equipment and sanctuary for the working horses and their owners of the working horses of the Egyptian pyramids.
Dogs, Cats and Rabbits
Animal Friends - This is an animal shelter that accepts dogs, cats and rabbits.
Greyhound Rescue, Inc. - Much like the OTTBs of the equine world, raced greyhounds often have trouble finding homes and adjusting to family life. This organization fills that gap and eases the transition.
Muttville - Rescues and rehomes senior dogs, one of the biggest problems in the adoption industry.
Blind Dog Rescue - Accepts and helps to rehabilitate blind dogs before placing them in special homes.
Marley's Mutts - This group rescues dogs from local high-kill shelters and rehomes them. They accept ALL breeds of dogs, something many "shelters" do not do.
MEOW Cat Rescue - They take in and rehome cats of all ages and breeds.
Blind Cat Rescue - Provides sanctuary and rehabilitation for blind cats in the presence of experienced carers.
The Bunny Burrow - Rabbits are the third most surrendered animal to shelters, and the bunny burrow works to rehome many of those animals, and all of their animals are maintained in a foster home system, rather than bulk kenneling.
Animal Rescue League - Going above and beyond the duties of a normal shelter, this league also hosts a large variety of rescued wildlife in their wildlife sanctuary.
AWARE Wildlife Center - Rehabilitates Georgia’s injured and orphaned native wildlife and educates the community about habitat preservation and peaceful coexistence. AWARE is one of the few centers in Georgia that rehabilitates all wildlife species.
Bat World Sanctuary - Rehabilitates and releases injured and neglected bats from all walks of life.
As a closing remark, please remember that there are most likely shelters and animals around you in need of assistance. This is by no means an exhaustive list, so please explore your options before deciding to contribute. Thanks!
