Northeast Partner Program & Special Projects

Over the last few years, huge focus has gone to building partners in regions of the U.S. and Canada that are do not face the gross pet over-population crisis we have in the South. We have a small list of regular partners that we send homeless dogs to, as often as weekly. It's enabled ups to save 100s of dogs that would otherwise have been put to sleep at animal control due to lack of space. If you would specifically like to donate to this program, please do so via PayPal.com to donations@doggieharmony.org.

Your donations to this program allow us to pull the dog from animal control, bring it up to speed on spay/neuter, vaccinations and tests -- and treat the dogs for heartworm and other ailments. Additionally, it allows us to pay for their transport to our Northeast partners. Each dog we send can cost anywhere from $200-500+ depending on what treatments a dog may need.

Georgia Shelters we frequently work with include Cobb County Animal Control (Marietta), Hall County Animal Control (Gainesville), Sumter Humane Society (Americus), Flint Humane Society (Vienna). We are occasionally able to help Dekalb (Decatur), Fulton (Atlanta) and Gwinnett (Lawerenceville) County Animal Control in instances where fosters are available.

In addition to this program, we are typically working on some sort of special project to help a community member in a time of crisis.
