Help Save a Life

As the year goes by and the seasons change, one thing stays constant…YOU!

HSNEGA took in 234 special cases last year thanks to YOU. A “special case” is a rescue or multiple rescues that need special attention whether it’s a medical emergency or behavioral issues from a hoarding situation, anything beyond the scope of our “normal” care and resources.

The Georgia Power linemen who rescued puppies out of a dumpster.

On the rainy cold morning of February 25, 2020, two Georgia Power linemen rescued three puppies who had been found in a DUMPSTER. They were covered in filth, their ribs protruding around their bloated bellies, and frightened beyond belief.

These puppies have gone through enough terror in their short lives. With your help, these three innocent babies, who were discarded as trash, get the care they need to grow big and strong.

YOU are the ONLY reason we can help these very special animals. 

Meet your 2019 Season of Saves

Meet Walker, YOUR winter save.

Walker got his life back because of YOU.

We found him at animal control…Starved. Emaciated. And dragging his useless, broken limbs behind him.

He had been abused and betrayed beyond belief. But when he saw us, he blinked back at us through frightened eyes…and wagged his tail.

We knew that Walker had no hope of making it out of there with his life. He was a broken dog. But his heart was whole and full of love.

With your kindness to guide us, we knew we had to try and save Waler. And it’s amazing what your gifts of love can do…

Today, Walker walks, runs, jumps and plays, and it’s all thanks to you! There’s no doubt about it… you’re a lifesaver.

Meet Captain Hook, YOUR spring save.

Captain Hook is a little miracle. A miracle sent by you…

Because when she arrived here, at just a few months old, she was barely clinging to life.

Her right leg was shattered. Her paw was completely torn off. Nothing could save her leg, but you saved her precious life.

Your generosity put Captain Hook through emergency amputation surgery and slowly she began to recover. Now she has a loving family all of her own.

Meet Dumpling (+9!), YOUR summer save.

Dumpling had a family once. But now, she and her nine puppies were on the cold concrete floor in a high-kill shelter in terrible danger…

That’s when HSNEGA received an urgent call from animal control. Unless a place could be found for Dumpling and her puppies, the would have to be put down.

When we receive calls like this, it’s only with your help we can say, ‘YES.’ You saved this beautiful family – Thank you!

Make a difference in the lives of animals.
