Your support on Giving Tuesday allows us to continue to work tirelessly to save animals in the Chattahoochee Valley and beyond while achieving our important mission of being a pet resource for our community. From adoptions and our foster heroes to our outreach initiatives and veterinary clinic, every donation received on Giving Tuesday benefits each of these lifesaving programs.
This year, a few very generous supporters have agreed to match every donation, dollar for dollar, up to $10,000! That means your donation is doubled and so is your impact. We've also accepted the Furry Fifty challenge with our goal being to raise donations from all 50 states. Please share our important message with your friends and family across the United States and around the world.
Because of your support, this year alone, Paws Humane has been able to achieve so much. When Hurricanes Laura and Delta struck, we assisted our neighbors in need and saved 43 animals from Louisiana. When our country came face to face with a global pandemic, we hosted pet food pantries giving thousands of bags of food to loving pet owners having a hard time providing basic care for their animals during this unprecedented time. Through our Veterinary Clinic and Pets for Life program, we were able to host free rabies vaccination clinics vaccinating more than 400 pets who otherwise may not have received this crucial vaccine.
In addition to helping those in need during some of the hardest times this year, we have adopted and transported more than 1,800 animals as well as performed more than 5,600 affordable spay/neuter surgeries and more than 5,000 wellness checks.
On Giving Tuesday, your donation doubles the impact for each of our lifesaving programs - Low-Cost High Quality Veterinary Clinic, Adoption Center, Transports, Foster Heroes, Volunteers, Community Cats and Pets for Life.
Because of you, we have been able to adapt during these trying times and continue saving the lives of animals in the Chattahoochee Valley and finding loving forever homes for all. Every day, we are able to help pets and people in need and that is all because of you.
