Help Friends of DeKalb Animals Get a New Transport Vehicle

FODA is currently in dire need of a new transport vehicleUnfortunately, FODA has reduced transports over the past year due to ongoing vehicle issues. We think it’s finally time to get a new vehicle and we have located one that is a great fit for us. We cannot continue to rescue animals without a reliable way to get them to their destinations. Since FODA was founded in 2010, we have rescued over 3100 animals.  A new vehicle will help save thousands of animals’ lives.

We need your help!   The link below will take you to our You Caring fundraiser. Please donate to  help us raise the funds needed to be able to keep saving local animals in need!

June 2016 Transport

On June 30th, FODA worked with a fellow transporter from New Hampshire to save 12 dogs from the Metro Atlanta area and transport them to our no kill rescue partners in the northeast.  We are still working to put the funds together purchase a new transport van but we it just broke our hearts not to save these pups in need so we found a way.  Click on the photo of Capone below to see all of the dogs from our June 30th transport.  We would like to thank Dale Green from For the Love of Dog Rescue in New Hampshire for making this transport possible!

May 2016 Transport

On May 5th, we transported 20 homeless dogs from Metro Atlanta to our amazing partner rescues in the Northeast.  Due to continuing issues with our transport vehicle we had to ask for help and Lifeline stepped up to offer the use of their bus for this trip.  We can’t thank Lifeline enough for their generosity!  FODA continues to raise funds for the purchase of a new transport vehicle.  If you would like to help with a donation to our bus fund, just click on the Donate button to make a one time donation or to set up a monthly recurring donation.

March 2016 Transports

Our transport on March 5th started off great, with 25 dogs headed to new lives in NY and NJ but unfortunately became very complicated along the way. Literally half way through the journey, the van had a fuel line blow, leaving our transporters and dogs stranded in rural Virginia. A tow truck ride, help from some wonderful people, and several rentals later, the dogs were delivered safely and our transporters made it home. Our van is still in a shop in VA and we incurred many expenses along the way. Please help us cover these unexpected costs, anything raised over our goal will go towards the purchase of a new vehicle:
