2019 in review and our 2020 GRRMF calendars are almost gone
As we move into 2020, our statisticians have been busy with the numbers from 2019.
To start, we rescued 107 dogs; 46 males and 61 females. Under a third of the rescues were of a mixed breed. Most of these dogs were owner surrendered, followed by ones that came from a shelter or we were notified by Animal Services from a Mid-Florida county.
The biggest age group rescued last year were the 1 to 3 year old group, with seniors (8 years and older) following close behind. Over half of the dogs rescued were spayed or neutered and only 3 this year tested positive for Heartworms.
Six dogs were returned after being adopted (then adopted again by their forever families), and one dog was reunited with her family after going missing and her chip not being up to date! Unfortunately, 4 needed to be euthanized, at the advice of our vets.
As you can imagine, medical bills for GRRMF are astounding! Each dog costs at least $500 for its initial vet visit, which is mandatory. If they have infections, need to be spay/neutered or as in some cases, major surgery, the bills go higher.
That is where our wonderful readers on the web, FaceBook and our other medias, come in. They have kept this organization rescuing dogs while a loyal team of volunteers give love, lessons and so much more to each and every dog daily.
The year 2020 starts off with puppy Clooney going in for surgery on Jan. 16th (paws crossed) and no doubt this will be followed by his re-hab and more dogs that need lifesaving surgeries. Please consider donating to our worthwhile cause and help save a golden!
