Johns Creek, GA (I-Newswire) July 9, 2013 - The SILK Program Launches its Inaugural Heroes Campaign
The SILK Program, a non-profit corporation based in Johns Creek, Georgia, organized exclusively for charitable and educational purposes to 1) raise funds for those helping animals in need, 2) increase awareness of animal welfare issues, and 3) teach about the many ways that animals benefit people is pleased to announce its inaugural Heroes Campaign.

SILK is launching its Heroes Campaign to honor individuals and families that donate their time and effort to shelters out there on the front line doing amazing things to help animals in need. Shelters that we have personally verified are doing good work, yet struggling to survive. For its inaugural campaign, SILK is honoring Lynn Donovan and her family, volunteers for Castoff Pet Rescue of Blairsville, Georgia. Lynn's experience working with this shelter is extraordinary.

Therefore, SILK is honoring Lynn Donovan and her family as our initial Heroes of the Month and has established a campaign to raise $5,000 for Castoff Pet Rescue, the shelter they work with, to help defray their ongoing veterinarian fees.

SILK is so excited about this inaugural Heroes Campaign that it is donating the first $500 to kick off the effort!

Castoff Pet Rescue of Blairsville, Georgia, is known as the 'shelter of last resort' in this region. Castoff serves those animals in most need of help - dogs and cats hit by cars, shot, found starving or suffering from heartworm. They even save pregnant animals and allow them to raise their young. Castoff also saves many animals in this region from death row by rescuing them from "kill shelters" and transporting them to the northeast to loving forever homes.

Castoff has extended the reach of their shelter through volunteers offering foster homes; but donations don't always cover their costs. Their vet bills alone can exceed $5,000 each month. SILK's initial Heroes Campaign has been established to raise $5,000 for Castoff Pet Rescue to help cover these costs.
