Our adoption donations are essential to be able to continue helping animals and saving lives. The donation covers vet costs; up to date vaccinations; microchipped; spay/ neuter; de-wormer; flea preventative; tick preventative; and heart-worm preventative. The fee also helps cover other expenses such as food, transportation, and anything and everything else the animal needed prior to adoption (treats, dog beds, crates, etc). We do not receive any other assistance aside from our donations. The founders of the rescue along with our volunteers do not use any amount of our donations or adoption fees for any reasons other than for the animals. We are very careful with where the donations go!
