AND...We will also help Barn Cats..
These are animals that fend for themselves in barns
or sheds on someone's property. If the owners will
step up and take responsibility to provide food for
these animals we will make sure their numbers do
not get out of hand. Barn Cats offer great rewards in
exchange for food and a dry place to sleep. Being
natural born predators, they will keep barns rodent
free and cut down on wasted grain and other rodent
destruction, a win-win situation for all!!
The key to the problem of abandoned animals, unwanted litters of
helpless babies, homeless feral cats and over crowded kill-shelters
is something we should all try to find....We have started an
organization to be part of the solution. We are a Georgia Non-Profit
Corporation and a Federal tax exempt 501 (c) 3. We applied for our
tax exempt status ten months ago and now have our official
recognition letter! We are located in the small rural farming
community of Girard Georgia. We are committed to stopping so many
un-wanted litters and getting our "out-of-control" animal population
under control.. Our Board of Directors are animal lovers from our
community and from Martinez & North Augusta! If you care about our
cause, helping helpless animals, please help us out with a tax
deductible monetary donation by donating through PayPal, or
directly to Luv 4 Paws Fund via mail....Click Here for our mailing
Thanks for your support!

We will not spay or neuter animals in or
connected with any rescue organization.....
It is the responsibility of the organization to charge an adequate enough adoption fee to
cover the cost of the spay/neuter. If applying for a voucher be sure to carefully read the
stipulations stated on the application form. We reserve the right to decide if an animal is
eligible to recieve our services.
Companion Animals will
be our primary focus!
*A companion animal is a animal already owned by someone. These are people's pets, owned
animals that the owner plans to keep. We do not fund surgeries for shelter animals or animals
owned or kept by breeders. Vouchers may not be provided to breeders or anyone who exploits or
profits from the exploitation of animals in any manner whatsoever.
We are a Federal Tax Exempt not for profit 501 (c) 3. Our IRS EIN Number is: 46-2254680
Our Free Services are available mainly to residents of the Girard &
Sardis area of Burke County, but we would consider helping other
Burke residents, on a funds available basis. Our funds are from fund
raisers, grants & charitable donations from folks like you! We
welcome ANY donations from those we help, and of course any
donation will go to help another family!
In six years one unspayed female dog, her offspring and their puppies, if none get spayed or
neutered, can produce up to 67,000 dogs. In the same six years one unspayed female cat, her kittens
and their kittens can add up to 73,000 cats. There will never be enough good homes for all of these
unwanted pets. Humane shelters will continue to euthanize millions of healthy cats and dogs each
year for no reason other than homes cannot be found for them. The most effective solution to help
solve the unwanted pet euthanasia dilemma is pet sterilization at the time of shelter adoption (or
anytime you acquire a pet) including early age spaying and neutering. The term early (or juvenile)
neutering refers to the surgical altering of a pet's reproductive organs at 6 weeks of age or older.
Our Veterinarian, Dr. Dyar recommends the procedure at age 4 months
Changing Views on Early Spay/Neutering
By performing early neutering at the time of adoption, the new owner and the humane shelter have
both done their part to ensure that a pet's offspring will not be back at that same shelter in 6 months!
Many progressive shelters now endorse this policy. In 1991, after careful evaluation of scientific
data, the American Humane Association became the first national organization to endorse early
spaying and neutering of puppies and kittens. The American Veterinary Medical Association and the
American Animal Hospital Association quickly followed suit and believe the practice to be a safe,
effective tool to help end pet overpopulation.
With the advancement of medical knowledge over the past 10 years, informed veterinarians have
changed their views on the appropriate age for pet spaying and neutering. Doctors at large and
prestigious veterinary hospitals and humane shelters such as Boston's Angell Memorial Animal
Hospital, and the Los Angeles SPCA, the Miami Humane Society, and the Harrison Memorial Animal
Hospital of Denver have performed thousands of early spay/neuter surgeries with excellent results.
If you already have an unaltered pet, even if the animal is no longer a youngster, the pet will
benefit greatly by the spay/neuter operation and you will be helping keep unwanted and unloved
pets from being abandoned to their on devices for survival...
