Veterinary Bill Donations

Russell Refuge is in need of monetary donations to help cover the veterinary expenses for the terriers in our care. Just like any responsible pet owner, we ensure that our dogs are healthy, up-to-date on their vaccinations and given the preventatives they require. The veterinary cost per dog varies depending upon where the dog came from (i.e., a shelter, owner surrender, stray) as well as the time of year (heart worm and flea/tick season) and the age of the terrier. Since our adoption donation generally does not cover the cost of the basic care we provide, we rely heavily on fundraising and donations to make up the difference.

Monthly donations are a great way to help us take care of these terriers until they find their forever homes. As a Refuge sponsor, you'll make a difference by providing a steady source of funds that we can count on to continue our work of providing for the terriers. We are also in need of one-time donations to cover the expense of surgeries and other costly veterinary expenses.

Common Veterinary Expenses

Flea/Tick Protection

Fleas and ticks can cause a host of problems for dogs, from flea allergy dermatitis to Lyme disease and Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever. Both ticks and fleas can cause dangerous amounts of blood loss, especially in young animals. An effective flea and tick prevention program is essential to a dog's health.

Dental Care

Dogs develop plaque and tarter just like we do. Bacteria from inflamed oral areas can enter the bloodstream and affect major body organs. The liver, kidneys, heart, and lungs are most commonly affected. This makes it important to eliminate any dental diseases as soon as possible.

Heartworm Preventative

Heartworm infection is acquired by a dog through the bite of an infected mosquito. Symptoms can include coughing, sluggishness and difficulty breathing. Heartworm Preventative treatments cost the Refuge over $600 every month. This does not include the Spring to Fall Tick Preventative given to the Refuge terriers every six weeks.

Spay/Neuter

Every year, millions of cats and dogs of all ages and breeds are euthanized or suffer as strays. The Russell Refuge spays and neuters all terriers prior to adoption. Spay/neuter results in better health for the terrier, improved behavior and easier care.

Surgery

Some of our terriers arrive at the Refuge with chronic or acute conditions and may require surgery to fix serious medical issues. The cost of surgery and recovery can be extensive.
