|I will never complain about the cost of a rescue dog....
If I add up the Vet care, boarding, trucking the dog north, the time and expenses of fostering, running adoption events - They are all about $1,000 dogs.
Sonny was a foster after his adoptive parent couldn't handle him. Because of that the rescue forwarded his full medical file, including the bill. The ASPCA had a $900 bill for his Vet care and boarding. That is before fostering in Mississippi, trucking him north, and micro-chipping. We adopted him for a paultry $365.00.
Snickers was a $60 Humane Society adoption. Unfortunately they failed to diagnose and treat his Giardia or mange (or whatever it was). It took about $700 in Vet care to get him healthy again.
Who said there is no such thing as a free dog? No such thing as a cheap dog either.
