The Board of Directors of Society for Companion Animals hopes that you will consider a request for funding for Operation Transport, a critical project in which dogs are rescued from Dallas streets and at the City of Dallas shelter, and given a new life by relocating them to areas where there is a waiting list of responsible, adoptive owners.
Our costs to ship dogs from DFW Airport on American Airlines to receiving airports:
31 small dogs shipped per month = $3,410
8 medium-size dogs shipped per month = $1,160
1 large-size dog shipped per month =$175
Average shipping per month total = $4,745
7-month shipping total = $33,215
Boarding is critical due to saving the dogs out of the shelters or streets as quickly as possible. We pull from kill shelters where each dog's time is often up quickly. Shelters are always full and space is limited. In order to save the dogs' lives, we have to pull them and board each week. We also board at a location convenient for volunteers to pick up.
40 dogs per month, 4 days a week, for 7 months = $11,200 Medical costs: Average per 7 months = $5,000 Shelter dogs are susceptible to upper respiratory infections, kennel cough, and other illnesses that we must treat. For dogs pulled from the street, we must pay full medical costs.
Project total = $49,415
Thank you for your consideration of funding toward Operation Transport. Through this project, we are saving the lives of our four legged friends, and enriching the lives of their adoptive human families. Our hard work and commitment to this cause, combined with your assistance, could help us to save many more lives. Any amount of funding toward Operation Transport will be put toward saving the lives of animals, and every dollar that we receive goes directly toward shipping dogs to new homes. Please know that our need is crucial, and we would deeply value your partnership at any level.
