Everything in rescue is donated. This includes everyday office supplies: pens, paper, photo paper, ink, etc. to everything a dog would need to live and be happy including: food, treats, bowls, leashes, collars, harnesses, toys, etc. The rescue often incurs huge veterinarian cost due to spay/neuter, vaccinations, major surgeries and everything in between. This is where majority of donations end up going towards. If not enough foster homes are available a rescue would also incur kennel bills which are usually $20/day per dog. If a dog needs training beyond the basic the rescue pays for this and often doesn't receive a discount.
