What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

How Sponsor A Pet works: Providing medical care, kenneling care, and proper care and nutrition of rescue animals is very costly. Adoption fees never cover the cost of the animal in rescue. Adoption fees normally cover the expenses the rescue group incurs just in obtaining and updating the animals records. That is why we have put together a Sponsor A Pet program. Sponsoring a pet requires a donation of $150 a month while the sponsored pet is under Adopt-A-Rescue-Pet's care. When the animal is adopted the sponsor is notified, and can elect to sponsor another pet, or donate the remaining funds to the general fund or the administrative care account. We hope that all pet sponsors continue through the dogs rescue period, but we understand that in today's world many organizations seek public funding and it must be divided amongst many needy causes. In consideration of this, we do offer team sponsors. What being a Team Sponsor participant means: A donation in the amount of $150 places a donor on a team. These funds are then pooled together to assist what we call our ?Spa Residents? - dogs who have minor behavioral problems and need training attention. Although these animals are always up for adoption, they are in most cases animals that need a special home due to their activity level or problems with sharing their possessions and/or owners attention. Or not being properly socialized initially. Other Financial Donation Classifications: Litter Care Program - Hard to believe, but many dogs & cats entering shelter systems are pregnant and or dropped off with a litter. Adopt-A-Rescue-Pet attempts to rescue the animals in these circumstances and assist in the raising, training, sterilizing, and adopting of these animals. This is a very costly effort requiring special nutrients and natural supplements. Each litter has unknown medical background and uncertain needs. But each mother and sibling requires proper nutrition and medical care. For example, each pup must be spayed or neutered prior to placing into the adoption program, receive shots, medical testing, and sterilization - average cost of rearing a litter of eight for 10-12 weeks, $250 per puShelter Dog Rescue accepts animals from private owners needing to ?find a home for their dog?. Most often these animals are not spayed or neutered and MUST be sterilized in order to enter into our adoption program, thus we incur the cost of sterilization. Why do we do this? It is our belief that if the person was to give the dog away un-sterilized the ?chance? for an ?accidental? pregnancy is most likely to occur, thus resulting in the norm average of 3-5 pups (each then posing the possibility of breeding and continuing the saga of over-population of unwanted pets). This fund also assists in the sterilization of cats and ferrets. Veterinary Assistance- Donations into this fund cover shots, medicine, medical tests and surgical needs of all animals. Homemaker For Cats & Ferrets $45 - funds allow the purchase of cages and houses for these animals to live in and enjoy. Fluff Plus - Depending on the dog, many dogs in addition to the normal bath and nail trim need a proper grooming ?hair cut?. Since the volunteers of Shelter Dog Rescue for the majority work full time and volunteer at events on off time, we must opt to have this professionally done in a timely manner. Food Bank - Many animals in rescue are very malnourished and require a special nutritional diet to get back on weight or maintain their health needs. Manicure - This provides a simple nail trimming. Toy Box - all monies in this fund assist in the purchase of toys and chew bones entertaining the animals at events and their special treat at time of adoption - something to take with them.
