Donation Boxes and Link to Support Mutty Paws Rescue Georgia

“Are you a local business? Well then we need your help and it will cost you $0! Please consider allowing Mutty Paws Rescue Georgia to drop off a monetary donation box to place by your registers or wherever you deem appropriate. This will cost you and your business $0 and is such a great way to help and support Mutty Paws Rescue Georgia towards our mission of saving the voiceless dogs in need

Donations are extremely low and we are trying to get creative to raise needed funds to continue. We are trying so hard to keep going and would be so grateful for your help. If you are inclined to help, please comment on this post or message us.”

“‼️ Our intake is closed but we still have many dogs in our care that we are caring for and we are in dire need of supplies as donations are non existent now. We get phone call after phone call and email after email asking us to take in the forgotten, the abandoned, the sick and we do all we can to bring them to safety. Please don’t forget about the ones in our care.
We are in desperate need of the following supplies: dog food for puppies and adults, pee pads, paper towels, dewormer for small dogs, and anything else you think the dogs would like” ❤️
