We are a new non-profit group dedicated to helping homeless and shelter animals in Cobb County. Many animals are picked up as strays off the streets or are turned in by owners who can no longer care for them. Many are just abandoned and made homeless through no fault of their own by people who adopted them and promised to take care of them. Some may be reclaimed by their owners, some will be transferred to rescue groups, and some will be adopted. These are the lucky ones. For the others, no matter how they come to the shelter, it is a traumatic time for these animals, to be in the shelter waiting.
When the group was founded, our mission statement had 3 goals:
- Help the shelter with requests they may have that enrich the lives of the dogs and cats while at the shelter.
- Help transport dogs and cats from the Cobb Shelter to licensed no-kill rescues out of state for adoptions to their new forever homes.
- Provide low/no cost spay/neuters to Cobb County residents.
Currently, we are focused on the spay/neuter goals. Cobb County Animal Control gave us a location in Cobb that has the largest number of owner turn ins and strays coming into the shelter in the county. We have focused on providing spays/neuters in this community since October. As of 8/03/16, we have fixed 221 total (93 cats and 128 dogs) thru our FIX Em’ Free program.
