About

Claxton, GA, October 23, 2016- We need your help to save our animal rescue! Save Our Souls Animal Rescue (S.O.S.) is a local 501(c)(3) non-profit organization focused on saving the lives of the unwanted, abused, and abandoned animals in the Claxton area. We have approximately 100 cats and dogs in our care and we are desperate for local volunteers to start immediately. We are currently beyond maximum capacity and still recovering from structural damages due to Hurricane Matthew. With only two full-time assistants, the time required for daily chores to care for so many dogs and cats has forced us to put a temporary hold on intakes. Our immediate need is assistance in cleaning kennels and crates, feeding, bathing, dog walking and socialization, and temporary foster homes. We need your help to rally the community to keep our rescue afloat!

This would be an excellent opportunity for community members of all ages to get to know our organization, network, make friends, and learn about responsible pet ownership. Younger helpers would be learning valuable lessons in responsibility, compassion, and teamwork while making a real difference in the lives of these animals. Volunteers could come before or after school, weekends, holidays, and any time in between. We have been approved by the Evans Co. Superintendent to receive students in need of required volunteer hours. Businesses, clubs, church groups, and individuals are all welcome and appreciated. There is something for everyone at the S.O.S. shelter!
