Candy Cane

Friends of the Shelter Dogs need your help!

This is Candy "Cane", now known to his adoptive family as "Spike" he is one of the many dogs this group has helped by raising money for his much needed leg surgery.  The group also uses donations for other medical treatments, vaccines, boarding costs and much more.  Recently they pulled out 11 dogs out of the shelter to go to a rescue because space issues were going to force the shelter to euthanize. But the rescue facility can not take them for a week and a half. 

The group pays to board these dogs so that they can live. If you can not adopt a dog but would like to help you can contribute by sending a donation to Friends of the Shelter Dogs, P.O. Box 576, Athens, Ohio 45701  or Click Here to do so on-line.


Monetary donations of any amount are most greatly appreciated. This is one way as a community we can help our furry friends!
