Why is financial support important?
When you donate to The Maggie Society, you can be assured that you are truly making a difference for the dogs that come into the program. Your financial support goes towards helping with the many costs associated with rescuing an animal.
The Maggie Society is a foster-based rescue. Each dog or puppy is cared for, in a home, through a foster volunteer or foster family who is committed to making a difference in a dog's life. Donations may be used to help cover the costs of foster supplies such as food, treats, crate/bedding, cleaning supplies, leash, collar, and toys.
All of our foster dogs receive vet care which includes, but is not limited to, deworming, flea/tick/heartworm prevention, vaccines (DHPP, Bordetella, rabies). Every dog, prior to adoption, is spayed or neutered, as a step towards reducing the overpopulation of animals. If a dog comes into our program, relatively healthy, the basic vetting for a healthy start is already costly. Unfortunately, most rescued animals have other health issues in which veterinary expenses can really add up. Some of the dogs that we take in are in desperate need of grooming, not as a cosmetic need but as the next step to get the dog on its way to improved health. Skin conditions, mange, parasites, flea infestations, broken bones, cuts, and wounds are all a part of rescue.
Many puppies that come from private homes are the result of an accidental litter. To prevent future litters, The Maggie Society commits to spaying the mother dog when all puppies are surrendered to our program. We refer to these dogs as "community dogs". When money is available, we may offer this service to other unaltered dogs in the home.
A large number of adult dogs entering our program are positive for heartworms as they are often not vetted and lack preventative care. Heartworm disease is a serious disease that results in severe lung disease, heart failure, other organ damage, and ultimately, the death in dog if left untreated, Treatment is expensive, but made possible through donations and funds raised to get these animals healthy and ready for adoption.
Contributions can be made as a one time gift or can set up to be on a recurring basis. No amount is too small and every donation is appreciated.
