about it

🌲Check out our 2020 Virtual Tree Decorating & Lighting Event!

When you make a donation, not only does a light or ornament magically appear in the tree's branches but you can post a message and upload a pic of you, your family or even your furbabies for everyone to see ❤️.

For us, each donation represents a kind heart who supports our mission to provide our rescue pups with food, treats, beds and medical care (surgeries, vaccinations, flea/heartworm prevention, etc.). Every dollar helps and 100% of the Event's proceeds go directly to the dogs in our care.

Click on the link below and a cozy living room will appear, complete with stockings hung above a fireplace and a tree, ready to be decorated with your generosity 🎁. The donate button is located in the top right corner of the screen.

Thank you for helping us make the holidays brighter for the pups of Guardians of the Animals of Ohio!

⭐️At GFTAO, we are dreamers. We dream of a world where dogs are protected, cherished and loved beyond measure. When we rescue yet another of the discarded or abused, for that one dog, our dream for ALL dogs comes to life. With our supporters' help, we can give them the life they deserve.

⭐️Almost all of our in-person fundraising, which we heavily rely on, has been canceled. At the same time, our rescue efforts have dramatically increased. These are unprecedented times and people seem to be abandoning and/or abusing their pets more than ever. We're hurting!

⭐️#GivingTuesday was created to be a day of giving and we're pleading for your help...

⭐️While we are so grateful to our community of supporters for helping us survive this long, we are continuing to struggle and unfortunately moving backwards, in terms of our expenses versus our donations. We don't know how much longer we can sustain this trend, but we can't stop saving the fur kids. Our work is too important, so we need to get through this somehow. The world has stopped, but our work has not.

⭐️#GivingTuesday falls on December 1st, four days after Black Friday and the day after Cyber Monday. We ask that if at all possible, you try to spend just a tiny bit less on those days, so that you can give a tiny bit to us. If we can get enough people to give us a tiny bit, we can get through the end of the year and maybe beyond. We would even more be grateful, if you could help a little now, in the spirit #GivingTuesday. We could really use it...

⭐️We also know that a lot of you are struggling too, so if you're not in the position to donate, you can also help by sharing our campaign with others you think might want to help or even better, start your own fundraising campaign by clicking the button above that says "Fundraise for this Campaign." It's so simple.

⭐️Somehow we always find a way to make it through for the benefit of those precious souls. Sometimes it almost seems impossible and we look back and wonder how we got by.

⭐️This time feels different. This time there's doubt. This time we need some magic. We need your help.

💖🌼Annie was saved from the franklin county dog shelter and placed into a foster home🌼💖

🌼After the foster family added a 5th dog to their home Annie started to act out. We believe Annie acting out was due to the lack of attention she was getting from her foster family🌼

💖Annie was then moved into her current foster home and now she is happy and ready to find her forever home💖

🌼Annie is an approximately 7.5 year old large mix breed🌼

💖Annie is a regal older gal who just wants to snuggle, lay on the couch and give her human tons of kisses💖

🌼Annie is kid friendly🌼

💖Foster Mom states “Annie reminds me of the orphan Annie movie because she just wants to find her loving forever home. Annie loves her toys, food & treats. She loves to go on walks, run around the yard and she loves to explore💖 Can you be Annie's Daddy Warbuck???

🌼Annie is dog friendly but prefers laid back dogs who are not in her face. So a meet and greet will be required if other dogs are in your home🌼

💖Annie has to be with a family with no cats💖

🌼💖If you are interested in meeting or adopting Annie, please fill out an adoption application💖🌼
