Help us help more animals
Rescuing animals is a labor of love for the people that do it, but the money to pay for the vetting, food, beds, exercise pens, crates and other animal necessities has to come from somewhere other than the volunteer’s heart. That is where you can help. Our rescue, like most rescues, needs donations of supplies and $$ donations. We welcome used carriers, pet beds, collars,harnesses, leashes & exercise pens/panels. One of the largest expenses of rescue is the vet. Our current vet bill is aproximately $2,000 per month! Adoption fees offset this some, but in order to keep our adoption fees reasonable, we need donations! For vetting, we need cash donations. If you would like to send a cash donation, you can use our paypal account, firstname.lastname@example.org . PLEASE put “ShortnSweet rescue donation” in the comments section. We will send you a thank you receipt with the amount donated so you can take the donation off of your taxes. Thank you for helping!.
we are sponsored by Rescue Alliance of Hairless & Other Breeds Inc, a 501(c)3 he organization so your donation is tax deductible!
Ninety percent of your donation will go directly to helping the animals currently being cared for at Short ‘n Sweet. Rescue Alliance is primarily run by volunteers, so the administration overhead is low, allowing us to use your donation for the purpose it was donated!
We do not send you T-shirts, or magazines, but you will get a donation receipt & a big THANK YOU from all of us.

Rescue groups rely on donations to meet the expenses associated with rescuing animals. Many dogs come in needing extensive veterinary care. The average cost to vet a normal dog with no extraordinary conditions is aproximately $100.00 – $150.00 (even with the great discounts my vet gives rescue)
Many dogs need special food, or special living conditions. There are blankets to buy, collars, leashes, food dishes, piddle pads & other supplies which all add up to usually exceed the adoption fees.
Several very special people have helped us to meet those needs. They are our “rescue angels”. We are deeply grateful to these people for their generosity.

While most young girls entering their teen years ask for make up & clothes, Dani (front right) asked her friends to bring items for our rescue INSTEAD of presents! The girls donated close to 200 pounds of dog food plus leashes, collars, harnesses, dog toys, flea soap,treats, brushes and a dog bed! (George says thanks for the bed he has claimed it)
As an activity for the party the girls also made home cooked dog treats! (and gave me the recipe to make more!) The girls brought their donations out to the Short ‘N Sweet ranch & had a chance to love on the dogs they are helping. Non-cash donations of these items as well as exercise pens, kennels and other doggy items really help the dogs in our care get the “extras” that help them feel special as well as help provide the basic items they need during their stay. We are so impressed that Dani chose to give rather than recieve for her birthday this year!
Dani has done it again! Once again she asked all her friends to bring items we needed… towels, bathmats, shampoo, flea products & of course toys, chewies & harnesses! Thank you so much for your generosity Dani!!!
