Frequently Asked Question:

How much does it cost to care for a dog?

A small donation can save a life…..will you commit to helping us?

Ever thought about how much it costs to care for a dog? Proper care is more than just feeding and providing shelter for an animal; it also includes medical care, housing, flea/tick/heartworm prevention, grounds upkeep, etc.

At Saving Grace, we think our dogs are pretty lucky. They don’t go to a shelter or kennel; they come home! During their stay with us, we provide food, exercise and most importantly, love. Now, the love and attention are free by a small army of dedicated volunteers, but we do incur lots of costs for their daily upkeep.

Many of these animals have never had medical care, so one of the first steps is providing them proper treatment and addressing health issues. Talk to any veterinarian about the costs of treating animals – especially those that Saving Grace has rescued. The list is very long – but we do this not only for the benefit of our animals but also for your peace of mind. You can be assured that the animal you adopt has had the best care possible.

Though we are sure the dogs would like to roam free all day and night, we have several fenced in areas for the dogs to have quality time outside. As good as this is some of these dogs still want to get out, so we have to make sure fences, gates, and nighttime sleeping arrangements are all maintained to keep the dogs safe. Grounds maintenance is a daily affair on the farm and imperative to the health and well-being of the dogs entrusted in to our care.

To address all these costs, we do charge an adoption fee of $395. 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 other local animal shelters. Saving Grace depends 100% on private donations to keep our doors opened.

The adoption fee only covers a fraction of the cost to care for the dogs in the manner they deserve, so we need your donations to help us continue our work. Sometimes these animals are with us for quite a while before they are adopted, which means it may be some time before we can collect an adoption fee to help off-set expenses. Since our organization has a solid reputation in the state for helping abandoned and neglected animals, we often are asked to take puppies from puppy mills when they are shut down. These animals specifically are with us for weeks and often times months before we can offer them up to good homes. Saving Grace is at the ready to help any dog in need, and without groups like ours these animals would have nowhere to go.

We know a financial contribution of any amount is a big deal. We don’t take that for granted.

We value our loyal donors and want you to know these monies go right to use saving and caring for the dogs we rescue throughout eastern North Carolina. The generosity of people like you is the reason we can continue this life saving work, rehabilitating discarded and abandoned animals into amazing family members.

Won’t you consider helping us on an ongoing basis with a monthly donation? A small amount can save a life and these dogs deserve only the best life has to offer.
