Mid Year Fundraiser
We need your help! Please DONATE TODAY and help us continue to save Shibas! To donate go to our PayPal Giving Fund page, or send money to firstname.lastname@example.org via Zelle.
Typically, we operate this rescue on about $10-15K per year in donations, adoption fees & programs like the Amazon Smile & King Soopers Community Rewards. This year we’ve already spent more than $10K on veterinary care, and it’s only June! How does this happen? It’s easy when you rescue dogs who have a herniated disc, had a botched surgery on a broken leg, got hit by a car, need extensive dental surgery, and have a mysterious undiagnosed orthopedic condition; all within less than 6 months! See their stories below.
Your donation will enable us to provide continued care for the dogs already in rescue, but also ensure we are able to take in the dogs that need to be rescued going forward. We have never had to have to turn away a dog in need due to a lack of funds, and we do not want to start now!
We know with COVID, times are tough. Please know that every dollar counts and no donation is too small. If a cash donation is not possible, please consider signing up for one of our passive fundraising programs like Amazon Smile, Kings Soopers Community Rewards, and the Walk for a Dog app. They allow you to make a difference while doing things you already do, like shop for groceries or walk your dog!
Koda is suffering from severe arthritic pain at just 6 MONTHS OLD!!! We have invested about $1200 in diagnostics so far to try to figure out the cause, but with no luck. He will see an orthopedic specialist in hopes of getting a diagnosis, and we are likely to spend at least a few more thousand more to get answers .
Sakura had a herniated disc and veterinary neurological specialists do not come cheap. We spent $4200 on her.
Grizzy’s mouth was a hot mess. His dental surgery and care cost over $1300.
Takashi was hit by a car, and although the shelter performed his surgery, his aftercare and rehab was close to $1K.
Leia needed surgery to remove a plate in her leg. Her care cost $2700; although $850 of that was raised in our fundraiser for her, it still left a dent in our bank account.
