Our 2015 Fall Fundraiser (Sep-Dec) will officially kickoff with our participation at the Greater Panama City Dog Fanciers’ Association’s Responsible Dog Ownership Day 2015 on Saturday, Sept. 19th 9am – 3pm.
Our goal is $2,500 and during the fundraiser’s 3 month run, we’ll provide updates and tie it into some other events like Dog Daze in FWB.
This year we saw almost a 2x increase in the medical costs expended per Golden Rescued. Your generous donations will help us recover!
ECGRR is a volunteer run organization and a private non-profit that does not receive any government funding. We rely on private donations, fundraisers, and grants. 100% of monies raised goes towards the care of the rescued dogs including medical, food and behavioral training if needed. Of that, 90% is used for medically treating these surrendered and homeless dogs including heartworm treatment and spay/neutering.
Our 2014 average expenditure on each rescued dog taken into our program was $694. In 2013 the cost per dog was $362.
While our online system is set for a $10 minimum donation amount, we have some suggested donation amounts that give an idea of what our expenditures are with most dog intakes. These include:
- $50 6 pack Heartguard Plus
- $100 Pay/Neuter assistance
- $150 Medical Exam/blood & fecal test/microchip/shots
- $400 Heartworm treatment (low avg)
There are many, many other costs depending on the condition of the dog that can range from a basic bath and grooming (strays picked up by animal control can be pretty stinky!), treatments for worms and other medical issues such as:
- eye/ear infections
- skin conditions and allergies
- removal of tumors (major and minor)
- hip displaysia
Every donation helps us save these wonderful animals and find them loving homes. Just click on the donate box above.
Thank you in advance for your generous support!
