Why It Matters

How Your Donations Help Sarge’s

We depend entirely on support from our community of animal welfare advocates and people who love their furry family members to keep our organization running smoothly. The funds that are donated or raised through special events pay mainly for the care of our animals, which includes medical care, food, preventatives for fleas, heartworm and other parasites, and kennel supplies, maintenance and repairs. We have staff dedicated to the welfare of our animals, including kennel assistants, behaviorist, medical assistant, an office manager and adoption center manager. Other expenses include overhead such as rent, insurance, vehicle maintenance, and utilities. All told, our average monthly expenses amount to $X.

Your donations of goods and services are also a huge benefit in helping us keep our animals happy and healthy and help save on monetary expenditures. We appreciate donations of supplies such as paper towels, Clorox wipes, laundry and dish detergent, and bleach, as well as old towels, blankets, dog and cat beds, treats, toys, collars and leashes.

Why the Animals Need It

As the county shelter has improved their live release rate over the years since Sarge’s and other groups have provided support, the population of animals we serve are older, less healthy, or have behavior problems that render them difficult to place. This means we are more likely to need veterinary care, including some surgeries and hospital stays, medications, medical testing, and behavioral consults and training plans. Our goal is to match as many animals as possible with a permanent, loving home regardless of the obstacles that must be overcome first.

Donations may be designated for Sarge’s “WuzBug Fund for Special Needs”, which was established to help with extraordinary medical expenses, such as heartworm treatments, surgeries, dental cleanings and extractions. Here’s the link for more information about WuzBug and the fund established in her memory.
