Some of the other costs associated with rescue include:
- Food, toys, treats, leashes, collars, sweaters, cleaning supplies

- Vet visits and medicine
- Exceptional medical fees for certain dogs
- Utilities – it costs a lot to keep them warm in winter!
- Telephone and Internet access
- Insurance (auto and liability)
- Bookkeeping (essential for a non-profit)
- Laundry – we wash a lot of dog beds and blankets!
- Transportation costs: gas, van maintenance, etc.
To this, we must acknowledge the care of our hospice dogs. These sweet animals will probably never be adopted because of their age or physical condition. But they, too, have medical needs. Please know that your adoption fee goes to support the costs directly associated with your dog as well as keeping our doors open to the many dogs we’ve helped. We cannot do it without your support, and we are so grateful to you for saving a life. In exchange, we offer you lifelong support. We encourage you to contact us with any questions about your dog’s medical, nutritional, or behavioral needs. We’re here to support the adoption in any way possible.
