Did you know that CGA is a 501(c)3 non-profit entity and donations in any amount are completely tax deductible?
CGA is feeling the impact of increased costs in recent years. For the first time, in several years we are finding our income from adoption fees and donations falling short. During our last fiscal year we spent nearly $75,000 for veterinary services, our major expense category. While spays and neuters are primarily donated by our important network of generous veterinarians, other vital yet costly services are only discounted. Examples of these types of expenses are broken legs, major dental issues, diagnosis and ongoing medication for auto-immune disorders, treatment and recovery from injuries, etc.
It is our goal never to be forced to turn away a greyhound from our adoption program based on our financial inability to meet its medical needs. Our current financial trend puts us in a situation where we will soon have to make some hard choices as our veterinary costs continue to rise. Like you, this is a position we desperately want to avoid.
Over the past ten years, we have completed over 2,500 adoptions; something we're very proud of. However, there are approximately 100 hounds awaiting room in CGA foster homes at any given time. Our terrific 100% volunteer organization always steps up to help whenever a plea is made, be it fostering, transportation, manning CGA booths at events or simply getting the word out about this wonderful family breed. We hope this occasion will be no different.
Help us help these wonderful hounds at this especially needful time. Consider a generous tax-deductible donation in any amount to Colorado Greyhound Adoption. Some examples of veterinary expenditures to keep in mind as you consider
* $60 - two month supply of Pannus medication for a foster hound
* $100 - a complete blood work up for an older dog prior to surgery
* $300 - dental for a relinquished hound
* $500-$700 - repair a laceration
* $1,500 - $2,000 - repair of a broken leg, or major dental work
We accept Visa and Mastercard at our CGA Online Store, or you can send us a check or money order to our mailing address. Any way you can find it in your heart to help is always greatly appreciated!
