Ozzy was rescued from an Atlanta, Georgia parking lot in 2003. He was only four weeks old and weighed only a few ounces. He was anemic and covered in fleas. His right eye had been destroyed and he had been abandoned and left to die. In fact, he was so close to death that flies had already begun to lay eggs in his fur. However, Ozzy's story did not end that day ten years ago. Today, he is a healthy and much loved boy who rules his household. We cannot think of a better rescue story or any animal who is more deserving of having a Fund named in his honor.


The purpose of Ozzy's Fund is to support initiatives which directly affect the lives of animals within the middle Georgia area. The fund should be used to promote the welfare of animals of all kinds and facilitate projects within the scope of the following areas:

  • Spay/Neuter 
  • Trap/Neuter/Release
  •  Animal Adoption
  •  Preventing Animal Cruelty

In accordance with state, federal, and municipal laws, this Foundation intends to comply with these laws which preclude discrimination because of race, disability, creed, religion, gender, age, national origin or any other protected classification.
