About EARS Effingham Animal Rescue Sanctuary

Our small foster-based rescue's mission is to reduce and rid the number of animals killed in our area through education and promoting responsible pet ownership which includes spay/neuter, appropriate pet identification, proper pet care and the quality adoption and care of homeless pets.
We began operating as a 501(c)(3) in 2010 and in addition to adoptions, we offer low-cost spay neuter, microchip events, pet food to needy families, silver paws, critical care funding and a very successful TNR program.
