It can cost $1,200 to treat just one heartworm case. And $20,000 to treat an entire litter of sick puppies with Parvo. We spare no expense for medical aid for our rescued special needs dogs. And while our veterinarian partners help, we still need funds to give these dogs their best lives.
We’re 100% foster-based. We need to cover all the basics so our pups learn what it’s like to have meals, treats, toys, and a bed (not a cold metal cage). We also cover spay/neuters, microchips, and vaccines.
Plus, we’re a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, so your donation is tax-deductible.
Here are a few ways to directly help special needs pups.
in saving special needs dogs and giving them their best lives.
Because we need your help.
All donations go directly towards helping out dogs like Gambit, who's blind (but you'd never know it!)
You can also send a donation by mail to:
PO Box 534 Grove City, OH 43123.
