Compassionate Hearts

Sometimes animals, such as the ones profiled below, come to us sick, injured, and in need of special, sometimes costly, medical attention. Donations to our Compassionate Hearts Fund help to cover the cost of treatment. Won't you help one of these dear animals recover by making a secure donation to our Compassionate Hearts Fund?  When you see where you can designate your gift, choose "Compassionate Hearts."  If you prefer, you can also make a contribution by sending your check directly to:  Georgia SPCA, 1175 Hwy 23, Suite 109, Suwanee, GA 30024.

Here are some of the animals currently needing help, as well as some that have been helped through the generosity of concerned donors like you:

Little Trooper with a broken humerus

On January 23rd, Georgia SPCA got a message about an urgent puppy at Barrow County Animal Control. A three month old rottweiler puppy was in need of immediate rescue due to a fractured humerus in his front right leg. The puppy is now safe at a Georgia SPCA foster home but his recovery journey has just begun. He's been given the name Trooper because he's not letting his injury dampen his spirit and is playing with his foster brothers and chewing things up like a puppy should. Trooper has a long journey ahead of him and is likely to need surgery to fully recover.

Harry and Sally

Brother and sister Harry and Sally were born without eyelids. They lived a very painful existence and were recently surrendered to the Georgia SPCA. Harry had corrective surgery, and while the stitches and swelling look rather awful, Harry was already feeling better - purring and licking Marjan, our Vet Tech - the very next day. Sally currently has a urinary tract infection, and she will have surgery as soon as she's healed. Their medical care will likely total more than $1,000.

Ella and Prince

Ella and Prince came to us skin and bones, with demodectic mange so severe that they had hair loss and sores down to their bones.


Wilson is an 18-month-old Staffordshire terrier mix who had a rough start in life.  Wilson came to Gwinnett County Animal Control in January  after he was found as a stray.  He was scheduled to be put down several times, but was so beloved by the staff there, that they continued to keep him even though he has health issues and is not a highly adoptable breed.  On March 4, the GA SPCA rescued him and took him straight to the vet where he

A Plea for Snowpea

Snowpea and her puppies were rescued from Toccoa/Stephens County Animal Control the day of the January snowstorm.  All are safe and sound in a loving foster home, and the pups will be available for adoption on 3/21.  However, Snowpea has heartworms, a potentially fatal condition if left untreated, so she will need to remain in foster care for an additional six weeks while she recei

Healing Hearts for Valentine's Day

Meet sweet Valentine, a 5-year-old Boston Terrier.  She is sure to steal your heart, but she needs your help to make her heart healthy again. Valentine has heartworms, a potentially fatal condition if left untreated. We rescued Valentine from Stephens County Animal Control, where she was taken when her family could no longer care for her.

Marvelous Marvel and her Pups

Marvel and her pups had a rough start in life. The were rescued from an animal control facility in Stephens County, Georgia. Marvel couldn't produce enough milk, had complications, and the pups had to be bottle fed for a time. The puppies contracted canine herpes, which can be deadly to very young puppies.
