Lowball rescue...$100 bucks a day

Reunion Rescue is out there panhandling again. It costs us a lowball $100 bucks a day to keep our heads afloat. Boarding alone is $250 a month and until we can make some adoptions here in Texas, we must keep our California dogs in boarding.

Once a couple of adoptions happen here, we can move some of the Cali dogs to our sanctuary here and get them ready to place. Until then, it's $100 bucks a day.

Where do we get the money? Well, mostly from the generosity of our donators, selling a couple of books and a tee shirt, but between juggling the dogs here, exercising, feeding and training, fundraising is difficult to say the least.

BeBe and Peanut need herbal tinctures to help them move past the issues incurred at Spindletop. We'll get there, but $65 a bottle is expensive.

We took a big hit at the vet for Nolan which could have been bypassed, but wound up at the wrong the cash register and emptied out Reunion's reserve. They did leave us a big fat tick on his chest....was that a tip?

We took another hit on one of our sanctuary cats to the tune of $1K at the conventional vet. The homeopathic treatment is trying to undo the damage done at the regular vet, but no guarantees. Amber, Pip and the rest of the dogs need to be fed which along with sanctuary cats and birds adds up to about $10 a day on a slow day.

Crates, kennels, collars, leashes, toys, Kongs, chews....all these things cost money. We got a wonderful donation of dog beds from our good friend Kathi, but still need tarps for the deck and would love to have some raised beds for the outdoor day kennels.

The sanctuary cats have chewed their furniture to the bare bones and are down to one halfway decent kitty condo. Please consider a donation to help our kitties. We have two chip-in's for the kitties:

And another chip-in for Nolan:

We also need volunteer help.
  • We need photographers in the bay area who might be willing to take a photo or two of our wonderful California dogs. 
  • We need help with our networking on the internet. 
  • We need help in Austin at some local events.

Please help Reunion Rescue help our current animals until they find those forever homes. We just know they're out there.

Here are our Texas dogs:
