…and so could a great organization that is committed to saving the dogs and cats at the Jasper County Animal Control shelter.
Rescue Me GA (RMG) started in November 2011. It is an all volunteer organization that has saved more than 2700 animals at the Jasper County shelter. RMG is the only way out for many of the animals at the shelter.
RMG also works hard to get most all the food at the shelter donated as well as many of the supplies, such as toys, cleaning products, blankets, etc. When the weather turned so cold recently, it was RMG that bought igloos and dog houses for the dogs that were in the runs outside to make sure they could keep warm. They pay for many of the vet bills for the dogs and cats that are either brought to the shelter or picked up by Animal Control.
Recently, it was one of the partners in RMG that got a very special anonymous person to donate approximately $70,000 (based on checks written by the County) to pay for renovation at the animal control building. The building was re-designed inside which allowed for more dogs to be housed as well installing runs outside, allowing the dogs to be able to go outside when the weather is nice.
In addition to that donation, another donor has given $3000 so a room exclusively for cats can be renovated and completed.
RMG organized the recent Spay & Neuter Clinic held in November at the shelter and has several more planned in 2015.
Toys, blankets, igloos, clinics, medicines, and supplies all take money. More money will also be needed to complete and finish the cat room. RMG is doing wonderful things at our shelter! In fact, it has been a year or more since any animals have been euthanized at the Jasper County Animal Control Shelter. This is something we can all be proud of!
