Costs at Greyhound Rescue have continued to increase of late. We are homing more dogs than ever before but this means that we also have more expenses too! There are transport costs, vet fees, kenneling, food, flea and worm treatments… it all adds up. We have held off increasing our adoption fee for as long as possible, but despite everybody’s support, sponsorship, and generous donations we need to make an increase to help us recover a bit more of our costs for each dog.
This adoption fee does not cover all the expenses to us of re-homing these beautiful dogs, but it certainly helps. As you are aware we are a not for profit charity and receive no funding. We rely solely on donations so every dollar counts. The simple fact is if we don’t try and cover our costs as much as possible we cannot save more dogs. Starting from August 1st 2014 all adult dogs starting their trials on and after this date will have an adoption fee increase from $300 to $350. We feel that this is a reasonable increase, and a small price to pay in exchange for a loving forever companion!
To to all our adopters and sponsors we thank you for all your support and understanding.
The Team at Greyhound Rescue.
