Dear fellow pet lovers,
This week the Humane Society completed two Life Ride transports; the first to
Atlanta, Georgia on Thursday, March 18 th, and to Fort Lauderdale, Florida on Friday,
March 19 th . We transported 8 cats on Thursday, and 14 dogs on Friday. Our dedicated
volunteers worked hard to make this possible!
One of our major goals is to help Lowndes County reach No-Kill zone 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 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?
