Please Donate & How Your Donation Is Used

Where Your Purchase Helps Support Rescue!

Want to help but cannot foster a dog at this time?  We have some other options that can help you assist our rescue.  Our rescue organization runs very lean on administrative costs.  Our biggest and major expenses are related to veterinary care, foster care, microchip registration, shelter “pull” fees and gas for transporting.  A small monetary donation can go further than you think.

How Your Donation Will Help:

$25 – $80 pays for a dog’s shelter fees (Yes, we have to pay for a dog even if they are on the euthanasia list);

$25 pays for vaccines (Distemper/Parvo (DPv) & Themerol (Mercury-Free) Rabies);

$150 pays for a spay and $100 pays for a neuter for a small-breed dog;

$50 pays for a cat neuter and $75 pays for a cat spay (for community sponsor/ferals);

$200 pays for a dental and

$300 covers a dog an average of 3 months during its stay in rescue.


We have a number of people who have a standing monthly donation and we welcome anyone who wishes to donate on a monthly, quarterly semi-annual or annual basis.  Your gift donations are tax-deductible but most importantly they save a life and set them on the road to a new beginning..


Sponsoring one of our dogs can make a unique gift or memorial for family and friends. Your donation will be used for shelter fees, veterinary care and quality food for one of our rescue dogs of your choice.
