Gracie needs your help in donations because of parvo!

Gracie spent a week at Animal Control she is 5 months old and was on death row this week. ARF pulled her out and took her to West Rome Animal Clinic due to Gracie not eating and vomiting. Gracie has parvo, she is weak and is being treated. She needs everyone’s help to get better, your donations will give her a chance to live. Donations to West Rome Animal Clinic or ARF web site by PayPal would be wonderfully appreciated! Please help her today!                             Thank you for being Gracie’s blessing.

Gracie who has parvo



HELLO EVERYONE…..its that time again…ARF is having its 3rd Annual Chowdown …..southern comfort food for critters. This is a major fundraiser for us and I am sending this to friends who may be in the DAR, CERT, exercise, or other groups with me…… This is our catered southern buffet with The Holler providing music. It is September 18 at the civic center and is only $35 a tax deductible ticket. Wine and beer are included. We will have our usual AWESOME silent auction. Tickets are available at Wet Petz, West Rome Animal Clinic, Peggys Backyard, Elysium, or by calling Sue Lee at 706-766-5213, or me 706-506-1079. Since 2011 ARF has paid every vet bill for our Floyd County Animal Control, bought every spray, wash, and even supplied all the wet dog and cat food. Yes, you read correctly, our commissioners do not feel that is a necessity even though we have hundreds of pups, older toothless dogs and pregnant nursing moms. We exist entirely on donations, as do many other animal groups. We pull animals from OUR a.c., send 50 a month from the public for low cost spay neuter, help those in assisted living to keep their pets and have a program for schools called Pennies for Pups which will resume shortly. We rescued 25-30 animals from owners who could not keep LAST WEEK alone. This prevents them from entering our a.c. where full =kill. But we need donations and monthly pledges. ARF has been attending animal court on cruelty cases to provide support for the animal control officers and documentation as we have paid the vet bill for that animal. One case can be a thousand dollars. Our sincere appreciation to Dr. Pate and West Rome Animal Clinic for allowing our emergencies and providing care. Please continue to help us so we can continue to help local animals…….Greta W.
