As we bring 2017 to a close, I'd like to thank you all for your dedication and support. We are number 1 on the "A" List because of our fabulous adopters, volunteers and supporters. We could never do what we do without you.
In 2017 JR's placed a record number of 1,273 animals in their furever homes. In order to accomplish that, our volunteers completed more than 5000 Home Visits and twice that number of background, vet and landlord checks. That is a staggering number...and I commend the amazing volunteers who make this all happen! They all work hard to ensure we do everything we can to educate, match and find the forevers our animals deserve.
People have asked us about where the adoption fee goes. On an average, JR's cares for about 175 animals at one time and as many as 280 ...that's a lot of food...a lot of toys...a lot of treats! But that's also a lot of vetting care. All of those animals are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, dewormed, heartworm tested and treated (if necessary). They all receive flea/tick and heartworm preventatives every month. They are all microchipped and have collars and tags. Many have been ill and/or injured when they arrive and we provide care for anything we know of...including dentals, eye surgeries for entropian and cherry eyes, luxating patellas and cruciate repairs and amputations (just to name a few). We do this all through your generous donations/adoption fees. We do not have state, city or county funding of any kind.
I assure you that the adoption fees and donations go to care for the animals. Our fosters are provided with whatever they need to provide the best possible care. Not everyone with the time, space and love to give animals has disposable income and we take our commitment to provide our animals with what they need quite seriously. That means fostering for JR's does not cost you money. Yes - we have fabulous fosters who buy toys and treats and make contributions and we greatly appreciate it...but its a gift to us and not an expectation.
The following animals have been with us for more than 6 months. Many for more than a year and several for more than 2-3 years. We will not euthanize an animal for space or length of stay...they will be with us until their 'furever' is found. But repeat vetting and continued care also costs money. When you're looking, please don't look past these long termers who really need you. Some have had unsuccessful meets, some have never had someone ask to meet them. Yes, some has special needs/issues, but we KNOW their homes are out there!!!
