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.

Bunny's Buddies is a San Diego, CA-based 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
An estimated 30,000,000 dogs and cats die across Asia each year, all in the name of human consumption.
Not only are these animals being consumed in various parts of our world, they are being brutally tortured to death as many cultures genuinely believe that the more the animal suffers, the more tender their meat will be. You may think these are stray or wild dogs but that is not often the case as many of these precious creatures are stolen directly from their homes or sold by their owners for profit. Once they enter the slaughterhouses, many still wearing collars or microchips, the torture begins and doesn’t stop until they are killed.
Hearing that over 30,000,000 animals are being subjected to torment and abuse leaves us with a heavy and hopeless heart, however, our goal is to stay as optimistic as we can with only one mission in mind- to save as many animals from this horrific outcome as we can. We work closely with some amazing organizations in China to not only rescue and repair these damaged souls but then, to actually get them into loving new homes.
Once these animals are rescued straight from meat trucks, shelters or slaughterhouses, they must enter a 2-month quarantine in which they are seen by professional Veterinarians and tested for illnesses and disease. Once cleared, flight volunteers will transport dogs at a time back to the USA in which we work hard to find them the absolute best, new homes. We know we may not save them all but surely, we’re going to try.
