Since adoption fees are considerably less than expenses per dog, we take a loss on every single dog we rescue. MABBR can only continue to save homeless dogs with your support.

Special Needs Pets and Emergency Treatments
Most dogs entering our program were not well taken care of, so they have a variety of medical issues such as mange, heartworms, skin infections and eye problems. Sadly, even dogs that were properly taken care of initially but still ended up in a shelter can contract kennel cough or intestinal parasites (aka worms) during their stay.
Expenses associated with puppies can be even higher. Many rescue pups came from parents that have not had vaccinations, nor have they been kept in a clean environment. It’s not unusual for one or more pups in a litter to come down with parvo, a virus that requires early intervention and a very expensive treatment. These are the kinds of unpredictable events that can wipe out what little funds a rescue might have.
