Most of us have experienced the joy of having a Special pet come into our lives. All dogs that come to English Springer Rescue America, Inc. require at least routine veterinary examinations, and most need to be brought up-to-date with shots and vaccinations. Many dogs have not been spayed or neutered before intake, so this procedure must be performed before ESRA is able to release the dog to its new owner. Expenses like these are incurred for every dog we foster, and the $350 adoption fee usually does not begin to cover ESRA's average expenditure of over $1200 for each dog. With approximately five hundred dogs in the National ESRA program at any one time, caring appropriately for each and every one of them requires an enormous amount of money.
ESRA relies on the generosity of its donors to help us raise the money we need to treat these animals and give each one the second chance at health, comfort, and happiness it deserves. I am participating in Strut Your Mutt as a virtual walker to raise money for English Springer Rescue America, Inc. I ask you to support me in this year's walk.
