FIX Georgia Pets -- Wednesday September 15th, 2021
SoCo Rescue is committed to decreasing the number of unwanted and abandoned animals and is willing to help all those dog owners who understand the importance of spaying or neutering but might not be able to have the funds to afford the cost. We recently received a spay and neuter grant from Fix Georgia Pets to assist those with limited resources in spaying a neutering their dogs. Interested parties will need to complete an application which will be reviewed by Scott Bennett, President and CEO as well as the Grant Coordinator. All procedures will take place at the Sandersville Veterinary Clinic in Sandersville. Participants will be expected to provide transportation for their dogs. SoCo maybe able to help with transportation in special circumstances. You can find a link to the application on on the website home page, on the right hand side under "News". We are happy to be partnering with Fix Georgia Pets to help end pet overpopulation in Georgia!

Rescue Our Rescue Campaign -- Monday May 3rd, 2021
SoCo Rescue is organizing this fundraiser to benefit Southern Comfort Animal Rescue, Inc.. Want to join us in making a difference for abandoned dogs? We're raising money to benefit our organization Southern Comfort Animal Rescue, Inc., and any donation will help make an impact. Thanks in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much to us! For almost 10 years, Scott Bennett, President of Southern Comfort Animal Rescue, has been bringing abused, neglected, and homeless dogs from rural Georgia to New Jersey, where they are adopted and placed in loving, forever homes. Driving a large bus outfitted with more than two dozen crates, he makes the 1,700 mile round trip “Freedom Ride” every month to connect area dog-lovers with pups in need. Last year, SoCo placed more than 400 dogs in New Jersey homes. Now, our well-loved rescue has lost its home and is at risk of closing its doors! The property in Wheeler County, Georgia where the rescue currently stands , is being sold. But, we haven’t given up. At this very moment, efforts are being made to secure a property that SoCo may call home forever. This is a huge endeavor for our small rescue so we’re reaching out to you for help. We are attempting to raise $100,000 that will help us purchase a property that includes multiple buildings that could be easily converted into a proper dog shelter, plenty of land in which to one day expand and even a small home that will allow Scott to live onsite with the rescue dogs. We humbly invite you to help us continue to: - offer the only resource for the dogs in Wheeler county and surrounding areas - match dog lovers with dogs-in-need - save lives of dogs and puppies everyday - realize our dream of finally having a permanent home Generous Donors Get Us Started Paul and Anne Donnelo of Titusville, NJ have launched the Rescue Our Rescue campaign by donating $2500. They have adopted a SoCo dog and believe whole-heartedly in our mission. Please join them in going the extra distance to make the SoCo dream come true. We are asking one and all to join us in this unbelievable effort! We are planning several ways to honor our donors Pledges $249 or less recognized on our FB page Pledges of $250 will have a place on our virtual donor wall on our website Pledges of $500 or more will have place on our virtual donor wall and your own personalized kennel at the new rescue or crate on the Freedom Ride Bus We are hoping to raise $100,000 in 2021.
