(21) Facebook.clipularGrass Roots Rescue Society, which received IRS approval of 501(c)(3) status in 2014, has two primary objectives:

1) Rescue dogs and cats and get them adopted;

2) Spay/neuter and provide life-saving veterinary care for rescued dogs and cats.  When funds allow, we also people with limited income get vet care for pets.

Since GRR was founded in August 2013 by Karli Swope, we have saved about 200 animals (as of 10/14).  GRR is operated completely by volunteers.  There are no employees and no compensation for the directors on the board.   Private veterinarians and/or animal hospitals provide medical care for dogs and cats and spay/neuter.  Of course, we search for discounts and special clinics whenever possible.

GRR volunteers foster, transport animals to the vet and handle all fundraising and administrative activities.  We are committed to minimizing our costs so we can save as many lives as possible.  We would love to have your help –  tell us about what activities interest you on our contact form.

    Buddy has been with us for one day and is doing great. Sweet dog. The Scotties seem to be accepting him pretty well. Please tell us how we can contribute to Grass Roots.

    Here we go again. My father Robert is now very interested in a dog. You were kind enough to phone 2 weeks ago about Maggie a hound. He has been trying to replace his dog a German Sheppard who he got through his sister who house trains seeing eye/lead dogs. This has not been succesfull. We have a mutual friend Katie, in fact I think we have met on serveral occasions.

    You can call my father Bob (Robert) at 302-644-1494. He needs a well trained fairly docile dog. My father is 83 and needs the dog to walk several times a day. We live at Cape Shores in Lewes with no back yard but live right across from the beach. Him and my mother Francis miss there dog and need the companionship. I live at the house and help to look after them and their dog.

    Again the phone number is 302-644-1494

    Thank you for all you do.

    I am at my whits end, I rescued several cats during bad winters. And a couple were pregnant at the time. Now that they are bigger and older it is getting harder to care for them all. Have been trying to find homes for them but no luck yet. Only other thing I can do is put them back outside, and that will lead to more problems as we both know. My health is not the greatest and I am afraid of something happening even though have them deprecated. This is not good for them. They are friendly and socialized, been around dogs. Please is there anyway you can help?? It’s very upsetting to me. Thank you in advance Barbara Pompper

    Thank you so much for helping Scooty and me!! We just left him at Middletown Veterinary Hospital for his surgery. I would have had to put Scooty to sleep if not for your help. You have my eternal thanks and gratitude! What a terrific organization and a huge blessing for me, Scooter, and Scootys animal siblings!!
