What Do Donations Go Towards?
OC Pom Rescue is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit dog rescue in Southern California, which means we rely exclusively on individual donations to be able to save and rehabilitate dogs. Every single dollar and donation item makes a difference! All contributions, including adoption fees, go directly towards providing medical care and supplies for our rescue dogs, and are tax-deductible.
For every dog we welcome into the rescue, we cover spay/neuter, an anesthetic dental cleaning, vaccinations, flea/tick treatment, microchip, grooming, and any specialty surgeries, treatments, or medications they may need. For even the most basic and routine vetting, we spend hundreds of dollars on each dog. Small breed dogs, especially Pomeranians, are prone to certain medical conditions (such as luxating patellas, collapsed tracheas, and heart conditions) that require expensive treatment. Many of our dogs also come from neglectful or abusive situations and need extensive rehabilitation for their diet, skin, etc. Donations make it possible for OC Pom Rescue to get them the care they deserve.
We also incur monthly costs for food, toys, accessories, and other supplies. Our Amazon Wishlist and Chewy Wishlist feature all of the items we need at any given time. We are also featured on Amazon Smile, and can receive donations through your regular Amazon purchases if you select us as your charity! If you have any items in good condition, you may also send them to our mailing address.
