There is no way any rescue organization can carry out its commitments through the collection of adoption fees alone. More often than not dogs arrive in rescue with a laundry list of ailments. Add to that being heart worm positive and a large chunk of finances disappears. And even this doesn't take into consideration dogs with emergency surgical needs!
Caring people who are moved to donate bear the brunt of rescue expenses. Not everyone can support rescue in a hands on fashion, but don't for a single second think a one time financial gift is insignificant!
A microchip costs $10.00, heartworm prevention for one month is $10.00, monthly flea prevention is $10.00, demodex (mange) dipping is $40.00, annual vaccinations $40.00, a routine spay is $100.00 and a neuter is $75.00, heartworm testing is $10.00, heartworm treament is $300.00 - $400.00, and the list goes on. These are the recurring costs for care we consider mandatory to provide a foundation of good health. The figures multipy exponentially by the sheer number of dogs needing rescue.
