Animal House Rescue & Grooming is the little shelter that could...and did! We are determined to keep our goal of providing second chances and welcoming and saving 1,000 dogs and puppies in 2018 and making sure they receive the best veterinary care, food, comfort, and enrichment possible until they find their forever homes. We are counting on you, our supporters, to help us reach our campaign goal so we can save those lives and improve our shelter home through a variety of projects including fencing, play yards and equipment. In 2018 we'll reach, and pass, saving 7,000 lives!
As part of our mission, we collabroate with overpopulated and underserved shelters to help decrease the euthanasia rate of adoptable dogs and puppies. Our foster program allows us to save more lives and it is ideal for puppies too young for the shelter, dogs that are recovering from illness or injury or dogs that are shy or stressed by the shelter environment. In 2017 foster homes provided shelter and care to 653 dogs and pupppies!
Since moving to our new shelter home, we increased the number of senior and special needs dogs we saved. Dentals increased 45% and we welcomed 43% more heartworm positive dogs. Increased cleaning efforts lead to a 48% decrease in the number of respiratory infections and we now have more dedicated space to isolate and house ill dogs. Our veterinary team performed 392 spay/neuter surgeries, 1,247 exams, 107 dentals and 17 other surgeries. Our average cost of care is $500 per dog.
Please help us save more lives through a finanical contribution and by starting a fundraiser to benefit our shelter during the Saving Pets Challenge!
