Fixing in the Boro, a state licensed animal rescue and Statesboro’s first-ever low cost, high volume spay/neuter clinic (SNIP) is in critical need of help.  They provide affordable spay/neuter services to our community, in addition to helping needy animals in our area receive the vetting they need before finding forever, amazing homes.

They also provide a free community pet food pantry, a dog house trade-in initiative, where people can trade their subpar housing “units” (like barrels for their outside pets) for something far more suitable, a transport program to move animals in need to our partner rescues almost weekly, and a TNR program where they work diligently to spay/neuter and replace as many outdoor cats as possible to lower the overall cat population in Bulloch and surrounding counties.

Please Help Them Now

Fixing the Boro

Due to COVID-19, their fundraising has taken a hit—all while the demand for their services has increased.  They need some serious help. While the world has slowed down, Fixing in the Boro has not. They are the champion and voice for these voiceless animals in our community.

Many Animals Need Immediate Help

The request for need is huge, but they are at a critical place funding-wise.  Over the last three weeks, they have taken on some medical cases that were not at all easy fixes: two puppies who were on death’s doorstep, a third found less than a week later absolutely emaciated and covered in ticks, a rabbit whose ear mites had gotten so bad her entire ear was covered in canker.

This doesn’t even include a large number of cats and kittens they have rescued.  They have pulled shelter dogs and community pets alike.

Helping these precious animals is very expensive. Fixing in the Boro has a long list of animals in our community that need their help as well.  These include dogs hit by cars (stable but injured), shelter animals with dwindling time due to the amount they’ve already sat in the shelter un-adopted and senior dogs who have lost their families due to illness or death.

They depend on our community support and—with 2020 being what it is—they are no exception to the hurting the Coronavirus is placing on their normal fundraisers. They need your help now more than ever.
