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 donating to our Compassionate Hearts FundIf 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:

Please Help Boomer

Hi, my name is Boomer and I am one of the Griffin Mud Dogs that was rescued in Griffin, Georgia from a hoarding situation.  The Georgia SPCA has given me a new ch

Dixie Needs Surgery

Dixie is a 3 year old Cocker Spaniel mix who was found on the side of the road after being hit by a car. She was rushed to the vet where she was found to have heartworm disease as well as a fractured pelvis and a dislocated hip. Luckily, the Veterinarian is able to correct the pelvis and hip but the cost for this complicated surgery and the heartworm treatment will be quite high, $5,000. Please make a donation to our compassionate hearts fund so that Dixie can receive the treatment she so desperately needs. 



Meet Ivy! She is a very sweet 4 month old puppy who was born without full mobility of her back legs, but that doesn't stop her from getting around, as you can see in  her video on our Facebook page. We're working with our veterinarians to determine a possible cause and cure but it will likely be a long journey.

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.

Have a Heart for Edgar

Hi, I'm Edgar, a lovable 1-year-old Staffordshire Terrier mix.  The nice folks at GA SPCA rescued me from an animal control facility where my days were numbered.  I'm getting training and coaching from a fantastic trainer named Troy, and I was almost ready for my forever home when the staff discovered I have heartworms.  I'm being treated now and will be totally healthy and eager to r

12 Abandoned Kittens

These 12 abandoned kittens were discovered in a shopping cart at Publix.  A kind soul brought them to the shelter today.

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
