The Gimmie Shelter Foundation is a nonprofit that supports rescue animals and those at shelters in the state. Their goals are to help make North Carolina a "No Kill" state long-term, build quarantine buildings for various animal shelters, provide emergency support to shelters, rescues and stray funds and help place animals in loving homes. 

They plan to host another Woofstock event this year.
