Dear fellow pet lovers,
This week the Humane Society completed two Life Ride transports. On Wednesday, April 7th, the HSVLC sent cats and kittens to Best Friends Adoption Center and Lifeline Animal Project, both located in Atlanta, Georgia. We transported 6 adult cats and 4 sets of mamas with 23 nursing kittens to Best Friends. We transported 13 adult cats that were surrendered to the Lowndes County Animal Shelter and scheduled for euthanasia to Lifeline Animal Project. Our dedicated volunteers worked hard to make this possible!
One of our major goals is to help Lowndes County reach No-Kill status. As a method to combat pet overpopulation in Lowndes County, we conduct Life Ride transports. The Life Ride Transport program allows us to reduce overcrowding at the Lowndes County Animal Shelter.
Transporting animals out of Lowndes county allows us to save at-risk animals from kill shelters and move them to no-kill rescues where they have fosters and adopters ready and waiting. Other states have spay/neuter laws which cause a need for adoptable animals. With our state-of-the-art transport trailer, we can transport up to 22 animals to their furever homes. We frequently conduct transports each month and the costs to conduct these transports quickly adds up.
The Humane Society of Valdosta-Lowndes County is a 501c3 non-profit organization. We are pleased with the collaborative efforts between surrounding rescues and the Lowndes County Animal Shelter, but as a non-profit, we do not receive any government funding. We need your support to help us reach the finish line. We greatly appreciate your help! Will you help those who cannot speak for themselves? Please click here to donate.
