There’s no better time to give than tax time, and we asking for your help please, to continue our life saving rescue work.
Over the past 3 days alone we have rescued 16 dogs. One is pregnant with precious cargo on board, Russia, who is pictured here, is only 10 months old. Her owner had to go into a womens' refuge, and she had no way to care for her dog any longer or the pups when they arrive.
Another is a Mumma dog, found stray in a backyard giving birth to her pups and taken to one of our vets.
In the last 12 months we have rehomed over 750 dogs. This is a far cry from our humble beginnings. We are blessed to have the support from you all and our amazing doggy angels, our volunteers, to enable us to grow to such a size where we can rescue this number of precious souls, rehabilitate them and find them loving forever homes.
We can now at the drop of a hat, go into any pound, shelter, or private surrender situation, and help when push comes to shove and they need multiple dogs moved out or they will die. Just in April, we answered a call from Dubbo Pound; they were over capacity and no one was rescuing adult dogs from them, just the cute puppies. We went in and took 7 dogs, and the following week another 4, then another 3. They would have been dead otherwise. We found room to squeeze them in across the country, which cost us over $3000 in out of pocket transport costs… This is where your generous donations help. Directly saving lives and getting them to safety.
In May, Bundaberg Pound had 6 x 7 month olds surrendered when they were already full; the holding period is only 3 days and being surrenders they were first to go. Again we were full, but our wonderful angels found room, so we transported them across the country again, costing in excess of $2000 we won’t recoup.
In April we had another amputation for a dog dumped in a rural pound because the owners didn’t care to fix it. We had pups in the emergency vet, severely dehydrated and sick with coccidia. More excess vet costs we won’t recover. Ear and eye issues that needed extra vet treatment and care. Cuts, teeth extractions, all of these things are costs we are out of pocket for.
This is what we do, day in day out. This is what you help us to do. Save and care for these dogs, and we cannot continue to do it without your help and support.
Please, if you can spare anything, there is no better time than now, where you can offset your overall income for the year with a tax deductible donation.
Thank you so much
