Bebe came to us with her whole family–a little of puppies– and a heart worm problem. Please help us raise the $350 it takes to complete her heart worm treatment. You can donate via phone by calling TLHS at 662-841-6500.
In 2014, we took in 4,416 animals. Of those, 992 went to rescue groups across the country. From January 1, 2015, to July 8, 2015, we have taken in 2,311 animals. Of those animals, 656 have been transferred to no-kill rescue shelters.
We are so thankful for our relationships with many different rescues. Without them, we would not be able to save as many animal lives as we do nor would we be able to take in as many animals.
Our relationships with these rescues work in different ways depending on the shelter. Here is a financial breakdown of each.
One rescue pulls animals straight from our shelter. They pay the full fee of $85 which includes spay/neuter, 1st set of shots, deworming, microchipping, rabies (if old enough), and a health certificate by a vet. This rescue can take up to 50 animals at a time. TLHS pays for the transport of the animals, which runs around $2,500.
Another rescue organization comes to our shelter and pulls certain animals. They will pay $50 to $75 depending on what treatments the animals have received over time. They transport these animals to their facility.
The last three rescues will pay the $85 fee which includes all of the treatments stated above. They have to pay their own transport fee which usually costs between $75 to a $100 per animal.
All these animals require a 2-4 week foster depending on where they are on their shots. (Find out more about fostering animals here.)
We are so happy to work with such admirable organizations, and we are incredibly thankful to all of the TLHS supporters out there. You make it possible to not only save the lives of thousands of animals but to find them safe, loving homes. We rely so heavily on Save A Life donations when it comes to transferring dogs to no-kill shelters. We couldn’t do all of this without you.
Sarge is a very handsome extra large guy! He didn’t have proper medical treatment before coming to us and now has heartworms. We want to help him get healthy before going to a great home. We need to raise $300 to treat him. Any amount you can spare to help would be appreciated! Thank you!
Sweetie came to us as a stray and no one came in to claim her. Unfortunately, as we often see, without proper care prior to coming into our shelter she is now heart worm positive. We are asking for help in treating her so that she can get a great healthy start to a new life in a loving home eventually. We need to raise $160; any amount you can donate would be GREATLY
