I have had the honor of serving as the President of the Habersham Humane Society in Clarkesville Georgia for 1 1/2 years now. We have a strong team of volunteers who are committed to saving the lives of as many animals as we possibly can. Our Humane Society works with this incredible group called Tailwaggers 911, to place our dogs in forever homes. We have to foster them for a while until the transport takes them to Wisconsin.
Recently, I have been fostering over 25 dogs for over a month and it has finally taken its toll. Feeding, cleaning, vetting and loving this many dogs has been a labor of love. We save dogs that would be euthanized and raise money to send these precious dogs to “forever homes,” around the country. It does take a village to save these animals lives and it is a privilege to do our piece of this vast puzzle that make a difference in so many lives. Especially our blessed homeless dogs. The dogs stay at our stable in stalls until they get picked up. They finally left last Friday on a transport to Wisconsin.
On this last transport Elain Brown drove all the way from Georgia to Wisconsin by herself to save each dog’s life. Elain is my shero! We are a motley crew of devoted lovers of animals and each other.
