A simple card that means so much

When the article about our organization was published in the Clayton News Daily we received a card in the mail from two long-time residents of Clayton County. Turns out these were two very special residents - they were the neighbors of my husband's childhood home. Seeing the article on the front page news they reached out with the sweetest card and note "I am so proud of what you are doing". The card has been shared throughout both of our families and boy did it ever bring a smile to our faces. Of course, the picture on the front of the card is perfect but the words inside brought the happy feeling of the day :-). Notes like this make all of the hard work worth it!

Pet food assistance program flyer available

Do you visit businesses in Clayton and Fayette County? Would you be willing to ask if you can hang a flyer in the window or post it on a bulletin board (such as in your veterinarian's office)? If so, please consider helping us.

One of the greatest challenges we face is spreading the word about our pet food assistance program. The more people that know we're here to help means a decrease in the number of animals surrendered to local rescue groups and animal control facilities. 

If you're willing to help we've made it easy. You can download our Pet Food Assistance Program flyer that can be printed and posted in different locations. Print, trim between the tear tabs, and post. 


One flyer posted in one location can make a huge difference and we're grateful for your help.

First cat food donation made in honor of 16 years of love

On Wednesday of this week we received our very first pet food donation . . . and the story behind it is a special one. We had the pleasure of meeting Heather Middleton of the Clayton News-Daily and when she arrived at our meeting she had with her a bag of canned cat food. As we were talking, she started to speak of her beloved cat Cleo who was her friend, companion and co-author for an amazing 16 years. Sadly, Cleo passed away but it was clear that he will live forever in Heather's heart. The food that she brought with her was from Cleo's last days; and, she was able to donate it  knowing that it would make a difference for a family. The love she had for Cleo was touching and we promise to continue doing our best in his honor.

Heather, thank you.

Cleo
