What does it take to rescue 1 dog?

People are always asking why we cant help this dog or that dog, or why we wont do anything or cant offer advice etc..  If we can help, we will..  If we have advice to give, we will give it..  If we know of any rescue not overflowing and closed for intake, we will refer you to them..  When we are screamed at and bashed for not helping, it only makes me feel horrible..  We have to be responsible in rescue, otherwise are we really in rescue if not thinking of the dogs and our limits?? As of today, I alone, feed and water and clean up after all of our dogs. Everyday, by myself..  I dont get angry, I do it because its my responsibility to take care of every dog we have..



For any rescues we bring in, they all need numerous things done, before even coming here to us..

Spay/Neuter - $65-$100
Microchip - $20
Fecal Exam - $15
Rabies - $12.50
Heartworm Test - $20

These are the basics if the animal is healthy. antibiotics, heartworm meds, etc are always needed too

We feed roughly between 55-65 pounds of dogfood each day..  thats around 1800 pounds of dogfood a month..  

One bag of food costs 27.99 and is 40lbs worth of food..  

We try and keep everyone flea prevention also, 16.50+ each month

We feed, water, and clean up after 35-40 dogs everyday, they all also require all of our extra time and money..

We buy bones and chewies when we can but its very seldom..

One dog house is $77 at our feedstore..

One 5 gallon water bowl is $10

Each dog/kennel has a house, multiple pallets, plywood, and tarps for weather conditions..

We use cattle panels for fencing here, and they are 16'x4' and they are 24.99 a piece at our feedstore, and for each panel we need 3 t-posts..  Tposts are not cheap..

We try and use chain length kennels when we can and those run around 299.99 at Tractor Supply, but each kennel then needs a tin roof, which is also not cheap..  

I dont think very many people realize how much it takes to run a rescue, its very expenmsive and very time consuming..  If we take in 1 dog with issues, it throws off the entire pack..  

When people ask why I cant help this dog or why we cant do something for these others over there etc, i try to be patient, but really..  Somedays i almost want to scream..
