While rescuing animals is wonderfully gratifying, it is also an expensive venture. Before an animal can even be deemed available for adoption, (s)he has to go to the vet and have tests done, be brought current on vaccinations, and be spayed or neutered. And more often than not when dealing with animals pulled off the street or out of shelter situations, there are illnesses to treat (heartworms, kennel cough, parvo exposure), and pricey treatments medications to buy.
Then there are the daily costs associated with having more than 65 animals in your rescue. Obviously, the food bill is huge. There is also heartworm and flea and tick preventative. And there are things that no one even thinks about, like bleach to clean up after the animals, laundry detergent to wash the sheets and blankets, toys to keep the animals entertained, the list goes on.
While most weekends you can find us around town at different events selling homemade dog treats and other pet-related items to raise money, it isn’t always enough. Every penny we raise goes directly back to the animals in our care. But, as a non-profit organization, we rely heavily on the generosity of others to allow us to continue our work.

In addition to monetary donations to feed and provide veterinary care for all the animals currently in our care, we also need money so that we can continue to rescue and place our special little (and big) ones.

Many of our animals come to us from abusive situation or because they were abandoned. Between their pasts and being in a shelter environment, have anxiety. We do the best we can to make them calm and comfortable, but shelters are stressful environments (this is why we try so hard to find them great forever homes!) Dogs are social creatures, and they like to be with us.
