The good folks at Country Livin’ Pet Rescue have found themselves in a bit of a financial pickle, with veterinary bills piling up. A dog who has come down with Parvo is expensive, whether it be for a rescue group or a family. There are three ways you can help this fine organization:
2. If you’d prefer to send a check, please email the rescue group; or
3. Phone the vet, Happy Tails, at 678-963-5004 and make a credit card payment to donate toward the bills of Country Livin’.
Folks are sometimes surprised at what seems like high fees to adopt a mutt through a rescue group. But you’re not just paying for “a dog,” you’re paying to support the rescue that gave their blood, sweat, tears, and money to save the dog who suddenly broke with parvo or the dog who came into a public shelter with a broken leg and had no one else to save their lives. This is especially true with smaller rescue groups.
Veterinarians often offer credit and reduced rates to rescue groups, but the bills can pile up fast, and a single canine illness can threaten a group’s ability to continue its mission. It’s not too late to be a Christmas miracle for someone.
