Although the love of a dog is freely given, food and shelter are not. With the exception of our vet tech, we don’t have paid staff, and the rent is nominal, but the dogs need food and medical care, and the building requires utilities and upkeep. As a tax-free, 501c3 charitable organization, we rely entirely on donations and the work of volunteers to stay in operation.
The chart below shows how our expenses broke down during 2020. Roughly 1/3 of our money goes to vet bills, with another 1/3 to the facility and utilities, with the remaining 1/3 for dog care items, food, administration, PR, and volunteers.
The point is: we need your support! You can help by clicking on one of the logos or links below. Rest assured that donations are handled in compliance with all regulations regarding public charities. Our Treasurer, Lisa Burke, is a CPA who specializes in non-profits, and she makes sure that our finances are handled properly.
Any donations are tax-deductible, if you itemize. Thank you!!!
