Review for Shelter Animals Advocates, Graniteville, SC, USA
Shelter Animals Advocates and the HeartBeat Goes On programs are really quite extraordinary. Started by two women, who saw the need and had the vision, they have gained strength and momentum over the past 3 years of being in the 'business' of saving dogs' lives. The leaders of these groups work tirelessly, against all odds, to network and save dogs while keeping 'normal' day jobs. They have recruited many local foster parents for the dogs. There are over one hundred rescues working with them to help fund and transport the dogs from the shelter to the veterinarians to the foster homes to the transport vehicles and finally, to the new adoptive homes. These ladies do all the fund raising themselves as well. If you ever need a reliable charity to whom you'd like to donate and you love dogs, these two really deserve it. They spend every penny received on the dogs' care. Below I've posted a "before and after". When this dog was found, chained up and abandoned, heart worm positive with a bloody neck from his collar, he weighed 39 pounds and was riddled with fleas and internal parasites. By the time he left his foster home, he was in perfect health and weighed 65 pounds. Shelter Animals Advocates is a wonderful and amazing organization for these dogs. They deserve all the recognition they can get!
