Are you interested in helping one of our
dogs but are unable to provide a forever home or to become a caretaker? If so,
please consider sponsoring one of our wonderful, deserving dogs.
Each dog in our program costs our rescue, on average, $375 depending on his or
her specific medical needs and length of stay. To give our dogs a
better chance, however, our adoption fee is only $150-$175. As a
result, we absorb over half of the medical costs and costs of other
basic necessities for our dogs.
Many of the dogs we bring in
are very sick, have broken bones or need expensive treatment or surgery.
In addition to medical expenses, the dogs need, among other things,
quality food, treats, crates,
toys, monthly flea and heartworm prevention and harnesses or gentle leader
head collars. Consequently, our volunteers fund the the majority
of the dogs' care.
We established the
so that we are able to keep the dogs in our care happy and healthy, and
so that we are able to
continue rescuing, which is of utmost importance. We want
the ability to provide more than just the bare minimum to these dogs; we
want the ability to provide each dog with high quality food, treats, toys, a crate,
collar, name tag, monthly flea and heartworm prevention, microchip and a
harness or gentle leader head collar.
We basic obedience train each pit bull that enters our
program. Our goal is to have each dog CGC certified. In
this precarious time, we need our pits to be well socialized members of
society and we understand it begins with us.
Sponsorship can be rewarding for school classrooms, retirement home
residents, and others who can't
adopt a pet of their own but want to be a part of helping homeless
animals. You can also sponsor a dog in
memory of a loved one.
When you choose to become
a sponsor for one of our amazing dogs, we will:

dog's sponsor. You may sponsor a dog in your personal name, in
memory or in honor of another person or pet, in your company's name
or however you choose. If you sponsor a dog in the name of

website if directed by you.
