Catoosa Citizens for Animal Care is a non-profit in north Georgia that works hard to save as many lives as possible. The only shelter in our county is a high-kill shelter, so we tirelessly work to network and save as many lives as possible by pulling them from the shelter. Often times, we pull animals that need medical attention, everything from heartworm treatment or parvo to lumps, bumps, and broken bones. Most of our animals are transferred to other rescues, so we don't recover much of our costs through adoption fees. We rely on grants and every day ordinary heroes who are willing to donate a few bucks here and there.
In 2016, we pulled 465 animals from the high-kill shelter, which is a 28% increase from the year before. In 2015, we pulled 364 animals, which was a 17% increase in lives saved. We have limited overhead, just a storage unit that a volunteer kindly pays for, so our donations are going straight to the animals
