NEWNAN-COWETA HUMANE SOCIETY AND AMERICA'S GIVING CHALLENGE SPONSORED BY PARADE

The Newnan-Coweta Humane Society is a 501(c)(3) organization chartered February 27, 1975. Our mission and dedication is to prevent euthanasia of homeless animals in animal control facilities and to fight against animal cruelty and abuse.

The Newnan-Coweta Humane Society works very hard to carry out our mission and dedication. We post pictures and videos of the pets at local kill shelters on our two websites (http://www.shelterrescue.org/ and http://www.shelterrescue.petfinder.com/), host a local cable TV show called "Adopt-A-Pet" filmed at Coweta County Animal Control featuring the homeless pets at that shelter, hold fundraisers to help pay for medical costs of rescued pets and hold local adoptions to find our rescued foster pets forever homes.

We also help educate the public to the importance of spaying/neutering pets to help prevent pet over population, how to be a responsible pet owner and safety tips to follow for pet safety by visiting local schools and public announcements.

By having a strong partnership with Bark Busters and our local Bark Busters dog behavioralists, Barry and Jessica Sechler, we have gone a step further in helping homeless pets. Many pets are surrendered to kill shelters because of behavioral problems resulting in frustration and giving up on the pet on the part of the pet owner. Bark Busters is a vital member of our team because we have become better foster parents resulting in well-behaved foster pets who are more easily adopted and when we receive calls or emails from people not wanting to give up on their pets because of behavioral problems, we know who to call!

Despite all that we are doing, many homeless pets still need our help and we are up for the challenge but we need your assistance! We are asking for your help in winning a $50,000 grant to be awarded by Parade.com as part of America's Giving Challenge. The eight groups with the highest number of donors giving at least $10 win a $50,000 grant from Parade.com and the Case Foundation!

Please......help us to help them.
