HELP!!! MAGSR was asked to help with an urgent hoarding/breeder case involving 15 German Shepherds

This is an emergency.  The shelter is not equipped to handle such a large number of dogs at one time, so MAGSR has stepped up. MAGSR has agreed to take in all 15 dogs, which is a huge undertaking for MAGSR, and we’re going to need some help.  All 15 dogs are safe, but MAGSR is currently incurring massive bills for them, expected to exceed $8000.  These GSDs desperately need your help! They need all of us to pull together and raise the money needed for rescue, vetting, boarding, food, transport and additional medical care. All of the dogs are underweight, with no vetting at all, all will need vaccines, spay/neuter and other medical treatment. We can't do this without your help!!! Please donate - any amount helps and is greatly appreciated.

Please specify the donation for the 15 Hoarder/Breeder dogs in the message section, so we can put the funds directly towards funding the much needed care for these 15 dogs. Thank you to everyone who has donated so far and thank you for your continued support!!
