Rescue Survives On Donations!
The expenses (of
heartworm tests, prevention & treatments, fecal checks & dewormings,
veterinarian examinations, medical treatment, grooming, feeding,
& housing) can run into the hundreds of dollars for
each dog (In 2004 the average cost per dog was $350.00). The
Adoption Donation only covers medical expenses on a dog that comes
to rescue already spayed/neutered. This is the RARE exception
in rescue work. The rest of the expenses come out of donations and
fund raisers. When rescues don't have the money to take dogs to
the vet, the dogs are turned away. If the dog is lucky, it gets
turned in to a shelter or pound and at least has another chance
for a home. Most shelters and pounds are staffed by volunteers who
may not understand the needs of these specific breeds and don't
know what to ask prospective adopters. And most of these places
cannot keep a dog as long as a breed rescue can. Also, some shelters
automatically put down "wolfish" looking dogs and dogs over 50 pounds.
So, in reality, dogs survive on donations. And it doesn't have to
be money. Check out #8 of the Top 15 Ways to Help. Also click the

15 ways to help!
love your breed of dog and you don't have the time or facility
to start your own rescue, but you want to help out in some way...
a dog from a rescue or shelter.
2.) FOSTER a dog.
3.) Go to www.goodsearch.com
Type SHRF into the 'I support' box and
click on verify. Search the net just like you would with any search
4.) Go to a shelter just once, and work with your local rescue
to find homes and use their advice, experience, forms, etc.
5.) Help with transportation or overnight a dog being transported.
6.) Do a 30-minute rescue: Tell your local shelter you will come
by and groom (bathe, brush, whatever) any dog (or one dog of your
breed that comes in). You can do this and walk away, knowing you
have improved the dog's chances of adoption immensely.
7.) Donate: $5, $15, $25/month or whatever you can whenever you
can. Label a jar "Pennies for Puppies" and put it next to wherever
you empty your pockets. You can also put one at work on your desk
(you'd be surprised how much change you accrue at the end of one
8.) Make a donation in memory of your favorite pet.
9.) Cruise flea markets or discount stores - rescues always need:
towels, blankets, no-skid bathroom rugs, unused dog beds, paper
towels, bleach, grooming supplies (nail clippers, brushes, dog
combs, dog shampoo, flea & tick shampoo and prevention), first-aid
supplies (Triple Antibiotic ointment), crates or airline kennels,
gift certificates to PETsMART (or others), kiddie pools & large
galvanized tubs for water, dog biscuits, dry/canned food, and
dog dryers (forced air, not people hair dryers). Cruise PETsMART.com
now to find some great stuff to donate!
10.) Talk to your local shelter and TELL them about a national
or local rescue. They often do not know we are out there.
11.) Distribute flyers about breed rescue to your local shelters,
pet stores, and vet offices.
12.) Talk your local pet stores into donating items or food to
your favorite rescue.
13.) Spay/neuter your pets so their unplanned pregnancies do not
end up in rescue eventually.
14.) Shop the numerous pet stores on-line
and when you buy that food at a discount, have one bag shipped
to your favorite rescue. Check out pets.com, petopia.com, dogtoys.com,
PETsMART.com for bargains. People have ordered from them and shipped
15.) Hug your favorite rescuer. Sounds corny? A pat on the back
or an encouraging word or just a wordless hug can often bolster
the spirits of a rescuer who is disheartened & overwhelmed (which
happens all the time). A few moments of your time to tell them
you admire their work, that you appreciate their sacrifices, will
mean a difference. Your local rescuer is fighting the Good Fight,
cheer them on.
