Toccoa-Stephens County Humane Shelter, Inc. is asking for donations.

These two dogs came to the shelter in February.
The Chihuahua is a little boy named Little Bit. The Rat Terrier is a girl that they named Princess.
They did not come in together, but each one of them had wounds that no one knew how they got them. They were, also, stray dogs, so we had no way to know if they had been vaccinated for Rabies or not.
Because they had wounds of unknown origin and we didn't know if either of them had been vaccinated for Rabies, it has been necessary to do a quarantine for 4 months. That means they must be housed in an enclosure with concrete floors and a double entry gate. No visitors other than their caretakers and no access to other animals.
We are asking for donations to help cover the cost of their initial vet visit, food, flea treatment, heartworm care, and other vetting. (Princess is heartworm positive)
As you can imagine, it is very stressful for them. We'd, also, like to get some hard toys for them to play with, to help them pass the time, and some treats . We have a wish list for them on Amazon.
Their quarantine will be up in mid-June. Then they will be ready to be adopted, or go to a rescue, at that time. ...
