In 2017, our expenses ran over $80,000 - and that was with an all-volunteer staff and network. It included $62,726 for veterinary care, including $18,912 for spay & neuter. We spent $11,938 on medicines, including flea and worm treatments, antibiotics and various ointments. Thanks to donations of food and supplies, we kept our out-of-pocket expenses for those items at $5,327, but that's still a chunk of money. Our supporters came through for the homeless dogs and cats of our area!
We are a part of Bissell's Partner for Pets program.
When we posted two shelter kittens as urgent, Baylee came to their rescue! She had earned $20 from a fundraiser at school and wanted to donate her money to save these two kittens. She talked with her parents and her grandparents and a few other friends and got them to match her donation and she raised a total of $120!! She brought her donations to an adoption event and met the two kittens she had a direct impact on saving. This child is precious and we are so thankful for her kind and giving spirit and love for animals. It doesn't get much better than this!
