Are you interested in helping one of our dogs but are unable to provide a forever home or to become a caregiver? If so, please consider sponsoring one of our wonderful, deserving dogs.
Each dog in our program costs our rescue, on average, $475 depending on his or her specific medical needs and length of stay. To give our dogs a better chance, however, our adoption fee is only $150-$200. As a result, we absorb more than half of the medical costs and costs of other basic necessities for our dogs.
Many of the dogs we bring in are very sick, have broken bones or need expensive treatment or surgery. In addition to medical expenses, the dogs need, among other things, quality food, treats, crates, toys, monthly flea and heartworm prevention and harnesses or gentle leader head collars. Consequently, our volunteers fund the majority of the dogs’ care.
We established the sponsor-a-dog program so that we are able to keep the dogs in our care happy and healthy, and so that we are able to continue rescuing, which is of utmost importance. We want the ability to provide more than just the bare minimum to these dogs; we want the ability to provide each dog with high quality food, treats, toys, a crate, collar, name tag, monthly flea and heartworm prevention, microchip and a harness or gentle leader head collar.
We basic obedience train each pit bull that enters our program. Our goal is to have each dog CGC certified. In this precarious time, we need our pits to be well socialized members of society and we understand it begins with us.
Sponsorship can be rewarding for school classrooms, retirement home residents, and others who can’t adopt a pet of their own but want to be a part of helping homeless animals. You can also sponsor a dog in honor or memory of a loved one.
