We really don't know how much more we can take. Gabriel, a Mastiff mix, was just brought into AWSOM as a stray from the Mount Pocono area, cold and shivering. He is in very poor condition to say the least. Poor baby boy is emaciated, he has a 2 inch hole in his rear that goes right down to the bone and his face is a mess of sores. Even after what he's been through, this big lug has a huge heart and such a loving personality. There was no way we could turn him away.
AWSOM has had so many abused animals this week that we are struggling financially to keep up with our Veterinarian bills. These poor souls need our help and we cannot turn them away because our Yelp for Help fund in low. We feel very bad asking once again for your help but we just can't keep doing this work without your support. We are a simple, loving group of staff and volunteers who are charged with caring for the unwanted animals in Monroe County. The truth is that we rely on donations to keep going.
This poor boy is one of the lucky one's who was brought to us out of the cold weather. We have no way to tell who will be next, what dog and/or cat will need our help. Please remember, 93% of the animals that enter our doors are not spayed or neutered and our adoption fee barely covers spay/neuter, vaccinations and micro chipping. In fact, most of the animals that enter our facility need additional veterinary care. Once again, we humbly ask you to help AWSOM and give to our Yelp for Help fund to help not only Gabriel but the many animals that enter our animal Shelter. We have to be able to save every single abused, neglected and abandoned animal. We have to be their safe haven until their lifetime home is found. We have asked a lot from our AWSOM friends and are asking again, head down, hat in hand for your help. Please use the secure PayPal donate button below so we can continue our mission.
Please hear our Yelp for Help and pass it on to anyone who may be able to donate. Share our website or like us on Facebook (A.W.S.O.M.). Together, we can continue making a difference in the lives of the animals that so badly need us.
