No-kill shelter lacks funds and is forced to close doors

Another no-kill dog rescue is being forced to close their doors due to a lack of funds, reported Thursday's My Fox Atlanta News.

The Petzone Dog Rescue, Inc. is a non-profit, no-kill private shelter for dogs which has been operating in Athens, Ga., for the past five years.

Unfortunately, the organization does not have enough support to continue.

Owner Kate Carpenter told My Fox Atlanta:

Rescue is an expensive business and without good people that give us financial support, places like Petzone, no-kill shelters, cannot really survive without support from the people,"

Over the course of their existence, the rescue has been able to save an estimated 2,500 lives, but today, they are reaching out for help with those animals who still remain in their care.

In early November, the rescue agency indicated that they were in trouble with a Facebook post to their followers:

Petzone needs the support of animal lovers. It takes roughly $7000.00/month to operate the rescue. We fall very short every month. We need regular monthly donations to operate.

The rescue is hoping that there will be homes for the holidays for the 18 animals who still remain in their care.
