Shady Paws ~ Sponsor a Senior
S.O.S. Save One Senior
Older Bullies and those with medical or behavioral issues can be with us for a long time. We are careful not to "warehouse" dogs, but feel strongly about providing care for dogs who have good quality of life, both physically and mentally, until such things change or until that special home comes along.
These dogs often have the added expense of medication, special diet, supplements, training, etc. Designated donations will be used to provide ongoing, supportive care for these wonderful dogs.
How can you participate in S.O.S.?
Choose an SOS dog and send a monthly contribution for that dog's care. Since the costs associated can vary greatly from dog to dog and from month to month, we suggest a donation amount that is comfortable for you. Listed below are some examples of care costs.
Designate a one-time donation for a particular dog. Make a donation to be used for the SOS dog that needs it most.
Ongoing costs of a one month supply per dog are:
- $6 heartworm preventative
- $20 thyroid medication
- $30.Vet Check up
- $30 Glucosamine and Chondroitin arthritis medication
- $60 special diet
These are common one time expenses:
- $50 orthopedic dog bed
- $7 collar
Participants will receive information and a picture of their sponsored dog. Any donations designated for a specific dog, which exceed care costs, will be used to provide for other dogs in the program. Some dogs are available for adoption and our goal is to see each dog find a home, if possible. If the dog you have chosen to sponsor is fortunate enough to be adopted, we'll notify you and tell you the details.
If you would like to participate by sponsoring one of the LIBR seniors or special needs, please send a check to:
