Ever thought about how much it costs to care for a dog properly? Proper care is more than just feeding and housing an animal; it also includes medical care, housing, housing maintenance, etc.
At Saving Grace, our dogs are lucky. They do not go to a shelter or kennel. They come home! Many of these animals have never had medical care, so one of the first steps is providing them proper medical care and addressing any health issues. During their stay, we provide food, exercise and love. Now, the love and attention are free and often given by volunteers to our organization, but we do have to incur cost for the food and maintenance of their home. Though we are sure the dogs would like to roam free all day and night, we do have several fenced in areas for the dogs to have quality time outside. Some of these dogs still want to get out, so we have to make sure that the fences, gates, and the nighttime sleeping arrangements are all maintained to keep these dogs at home. Maintaining our property is a daily affair.
To address all of these costs, we do charge an adoption fee. Even though we are a 501-C3(b) organization (which makes your donation tax deductible), we do not receive state assistance or regular, substantial donations like some local animal shelters. Saving Grace depends on private donors. The adoption fee we receive only covers a portion of the cost to care for these dogs in the manner that they deserve, so we need your donations to help us continue our work. Sometimes these animals are with us for quite awhile before they are adopted, which means that it may be some time before we could collect an adoption fee to help with the expenses. Since our organization has a solid reputation in the state for helping with animals, we often are asked to take puppies from puppy mills when they are shut down. These animals specifically are with us for quite awhile before we can offer them to good homes. Our family is glad to help any dog in need, and without groups like ours these animals would have no other options.
We know that money is always tight in any family, but we ask that you consider making a donation to our family to help these dogs, who have no one else to count on but us. We welcome donations of any size or of specific dog-related items. You can make a secure donation right through our website with PayPal or you can send a check. If you have any other questions about donations, please do not hesitate to contact us. We cannot thank all of our donors enough. These donations go to use right away to help dogs here, and without our donors, we would not be able to save these dogs, bring them home to get better, or provide such wonderful, happy pets to you and your family!
