Why Donate?

We need your help. We are a non-profit society and ALL adoption fees, fundraising efforts and donations go to saving more lives. Although some of us are dedicated to rescuing these dogs full time, we do not get paid, but we do need ongoing resources to continue to do our work. The associated costs of rescue are significant, from transportation for the dogs into our care, to spay and neuter costs, vaccinations, medications, grooming, and on-going food costs, dog supplies, and incidentals. Many of the animals that come in will require extra medical attention that can involve costly surgeries, lab tests, x-rays, ultrasounds, and age related dental problems that require costly dental work. We bring all of our rescues to our local vet clinic and provide any and all necessary care at the advice of our veterinarian regardless of cost. We do our best to ensure the health of our dogs before adoption.


On Monday, January 17, 2022 fans of Betty White will be donating to animal welfare charities as part of the #BettyWhiteChallenge as a tribute to her on what would have been her 100th birthday. We are asking our adopters, volunteers, fosters and supporters to donate to NADRS in honour of Betty White’s memory to make the world a better, safer place for all animals. No donation is to small.
