  How to Help

The cost of rescuing these wonderful dogs......

Stats for 2018
We rescued 148 dogs...67 from the US and 81 from Puerto Rico.
Our total medical expenses were $123,829
US Vets- $67,887
PR Vets-- $55,972
Airfare from PR-- $10,255
Training with Boarding--$4165
That averages out to about $900 per dog rescued by GRSF!!

WE ARE SO PROUD OF THE RESCUES AND SAVES WE HAVE ACCOMPLISHED. We just want people to be aware of what it costs to save these dogs. We aren't mentioning the every day expenses of spaying/neutering, Heart worm treatment, treating kennel cough, flea and tick treatment  etc. So when people are "surprised" that we get donations for adopting dogs....here's what it looks like from inside. We aren't asking for money (although it never hurts😀). Our medical bills this year will be well over $100,000. It's not inexpensive to save dogs...but incredibly rewarding....and we hope we can continue to do this for many years to come.
