Money is always important as heartworm treatment is expensive. The
approximate cost to treat an adult Golden Retriever for heartworm is
$500.00. Roughly 75% of the dogs that come into rescue are heartworm
positive and must be treated.
That does not include the costs of regular veterinary expenses which are
done on all dogs that come into rescue. Nor does it include spay/neuter.
And I am still trying to raise enough money to build a small kennel to
house dogs temporarily until I can find foster homes.
However, there are always things that the rescue needs...these are just
starters..if I think of more I will let you know.
Dog food (quality/Premium brands as these dogs need the best to get back
Frontline (Flea & Tick season is upon us!!!)
Interceptor (heartworm preventative)
Oti-cleans or other similar ear cleaning solutions
Shampoos (not flea/tick as we use Frontline on all the dogs)
New leashes and collars to put in a bag of goodies to
take to new home. Nylon, cotton or leather...NO CHAINS! These need to fit an
adult Golden Retriever (Approximately 16-20 inches)
Towels (larger type/bath size)
Bedding such as crate sized mats and bath sized mats
Crates (sizes about 36 x 24 to 42 x 24)
Toys and balls
Grooming supplies to send home in goodie bags for new owners - These
should be new...pin brushes, metal combs, slicker brushes, nail clippers) I have
plenty of my own to groom dogs here.
Bones (these need to be the type for dogs..either bones or knuckles)
printer ink ( Cannon 30-31) black and color needed)
