Grass 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.
