How Much It Costs to Save a Dog
Did you know that on average it costs around $500 for a dog to be given the proper care needed for them to become adoptable? When a dog or cat has been taken in by an organization they are almost all given a microchip, monthly preventatives (to keep them safe from heartworm, fleas and ticks), vaccines and a heartworm test. Just about all of these animals will also need to be spayed or neutered, receive dental cleaning and often groomed to remove matted fur. This all adds up to around $500 for the organization assisting in the rescue, per dog.
How Does Your Purchase Help
With every purchase we donate a portion of the sale to non profit animal rescues across the US to assist in their life saving efforts. Our partners and our company share the same mission — to give all animals the chance they deserve to live a happy and healthy life in a loving home. We donate to a new rescue each quarter so we can spread the love to not just one but as many amazing organizations as possible.
