Mississauga Animal Rescue Organization on Mission to Save Dogs in Tennessee
A Mississauga-based non-profit organization dedicated to saving dogs is taking its mande south of the border in a bid to rescue 40 dogs from what they say is a high-kill shelter.
Fetch & Releash recently launched a GoFundMe page for its No Dogs Left Behind -Tennessee Rescue initiative.
On April 11, Fetch & Releash says it will head back to Tennessee on a mission to save over 40 dogs in need.
"Pulled from a high kill shelter, these deserving dogs are waiting on a local farm in hopes of finding foster and adoptive homes so they can come to Canada," the organizers wrote on their GoFundMe page.
Organizers say that while the team is prepared and working hard to ensure all of the dogs are ready to come, they need some financial support.
Fetch & Releash also says it's already lined up several families, so some rescues have forever homes waiting for them.
"We need funding! Did you know that on average, it costs approximately $500 USD to fully vet a dog and prepare them for adoption?," the page reads.
"As a 100% volunteer run, not for profit organization, we rely on the support of our generous donors to save lives. At adoption time, often, we only receive back a small portion of what we have invested in the dog's care. These funds are then reinvested back into the organization to help us save more dogs. There is no profit to be made in rescue."
The organization says the funds will be put towards veterinary expenses, food, supplies (leashes, collars, crates, etc) and transportation costs.
