Saving Shelter Pets Inc.
Saving Shelter Pets (SSP) is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) animal welfare organization. We facilitate rescues from high-kill animal shelters and promote spay & neuter, in an effort to give all pets the chance at life they truly deserve. SSP is a small, all-volunteer organization with supporters and volunteers located throughout the country. We rely solely on donations to continue our rescue and spay/neuter efforts.

Our Rescue & Transport Program focuses on saving cats and dogs from high-kill shelters in the Southeast and moving them to safe, no-kill rescues in the Northeast part of the US. All animals receive full medical care and then are quarantined at a boarding facility or in foster care until they are healthy to travel. We then use professional transporters to safely transfer the animals from the Southeast to the Northeast where they have a much better chance at adoption. All veterinary, boarding, and transport costs are paid by SSP thanks to the generous donations of people like you! :)


SSP also operates an innovative program called Puppy Promises (in Murray & Cherokee Counties in Georgia) that not only rescues puppies, but also spays their mother and all other animals in the participating families’ household – with the goal of proactively fighting pet overpopulation.


Our Bernies Buddies program helps to treat heartworm positive dogs that are saved through our Rescue & Transport program.


Our Spay & Neuter program is the pro-active element of our fight against pet overpopulation. We collaborate with various local rescue groups in Georgia and other states to offer low-cost spay/neuter clinics and events. We are currently hosting low-cost spay days in Murray County, Georgia with the help of veterinarian Dr. Felker and Murray County Animal Control. This area has a large pet overpopulation problem and a high kill rate. By assisting low-income individuals with affordable surgery options, we hope to drastically reduce the kill rate in this needy county. In the past few years, we have partnered with Catnappers to provide spay surgeries to feral cats in Dougherty County, Georgia, and SJC-SNAP to sponsor low-cost spay/neuter clinics in South Bend, Indiana.
