We have had so many Happy Beginnings, Fabulous Adoption Stories, and Freedom Rides that make us all so very excited as an organization. And we know that our followers feel the same way.
However, when we bring in the hard cases, it does cost our organization hard cash. And lots of it. This this is the side of rescue that makes it not fun!
Did you know that our Medical care often tops $15,000 a MONTH? Yes, A MONTH. Therefore, it has always been our goal is to raise the funds for each pet that has out of the ordinary medical expenses. This often includes treating heartworm disease and mending fractures.
And you know, if you have been following our stories, when we are taking dogs from the streets, the rate of heartworm infestation is almost 100%. On top of that, we typically see severe cases of mange, broken teeth and tick borne illnesses.
The only way we can continue to take in the sick and injured homeless pets is if we raise the funds to cover their medical bills. We are on the front lines every day, but we rely on our donors and followers to help us with the work.
Please see below for our active online fundraisers. We’d greatly appreciate if you can share their stories to help us raise funds to continue our work. Thank you!
Chester is about five years old and his back story is a sad one. Just a few months ago, he was living in the bed of a truck with his 7 siblings. Turns out he was used as a stud so that his offspring could be sold in parking lots of local discount stores. The Animal Control Officer from a local shelter took possession of this group when these transactions were observed.
It turned out to be Chester’s lucky break as he was made available to rescue groups and Take Me Home Pet Rescue (TMHPR) stepped up and took him into the adoption program.
When he went in for his neuter surgery, it was discovered that he had serious dental issues and he also tested positive for heartworm. His dental issues made eating painful and difficult and recently a number of extractions were done to provide some relief. He is now able to eat pain free!
That’s not the end of his story, please click here to read more and/or donate.
